Toseland's luck!!

I hate to say this because I like Toseland and rate him as a rider. But the way his luck and form have been going the past couple of years, I can see him ending up back in BSB next season. Having said that I hope he gets fit and wins some races this season to prove me wrong, good luck JT.

Bad crashes in testing have affected this and the previous 2 seasons. Even when he comes back his confidence will be hit hard.

Best wishes James

Hope you recover quickly James, need to see you back on that BMW.

Just a thought how about letting Brogan having a ride at Donnington as a one off replacement?

Get well soon JT lets hope your luck changes soon, never been much of a fan but you have always given it your all and waved the flag for good old Blighty.

But on the bright side MCN and James have now got a valid reason for the excuses for the rest of the season!

His Ride

It is difficult to say who will take over his ride with no obvious factory rider without a ride. Chris Walker knows his way around Donnington and can adapt quickly to new bikes. Definitely worth a shot and I am sure the attendance would improve.

Stalker...

..has already signed with Pr1mo Kwaka.

I think if anyone was to replace Toes for the next couple of races, it'd be a BMW affiliated rider.. (?)

However, I highly doubt they're in a rush to replace him for just 2 races.

Test & Reserve Rider

Does anyone know who the official BMW test & reserve rider is??

I would've thought they would be in pole position for a fill in role.....

At the end of the day luck may not be on his side now but he had a good helping of it in the past to get him those superbike titles,He has made a good living and its maybe time to enjoy it,Sometimes it takes a bigger man to know when enough is enough only BSB beckons and really is there any point ?
