Always a Gent.....

Sorry to hear that news JT, Be rightly proud of what you have achieved. I will remember a bloke that was down to earth enough in his 1st WSB championship winning year to come along and play the paino and have a crack in the Kentagon with us club racers And also your first MotoGP where only Lorenzo stop you getting pole, but you were still bashing handlebars on the first lap....! Quality.

A role model for any up and coming racer.

Good luck for the future James
