Decision imminent on Kawasaki future

The Paul Bird Motorsport team who currently run Kawasaki's factory effort in WSB will find out next week if they will have their contract renewed for 2012.

hope birdy wins

Hope paul Birds outfit keep the Kawasaki factory team, that guy sinks a lot of time and money into bike racing. I'm surprised Alstare have been knocked back already, bering in mind they've won world championships before and could have won with haslam if suzuki had given support when he raced for Alstare.

It would be a real kick in the teeth to PBR if they lose it now :(

People have short memories, Kawasaki would be absolutely right to drop Paul Bird motorsport after drugs, a gun and ammunition were found in the race transporter lorry. This was very embarassing for the company.

It was claimed by souces within the team that these items were 'planted'  This surely is stretching the immagination just a little I think.

the ZX-10r has shown potential..

second in first practice today at Nuburgring, pole position for Sykes earlier this season. would also continue the decline of the inline-4s in WSBK (conventional firing order).
