John Hopkins hopes for another Suzuki chance in 2011

John Hopkins is trying to secure at least one more wild card with Suzuki’s factory MotoGP squad before the end of the 2011 campaign. The American was due to race in last month’s Brno clash in the Czech Republic alongside Alvaro Bautista, but a heavy crash in the third practice session forced him to withdraw with a badly broken right hand.

GO HOPPER...... !!!

Dear Paul Denning, please give it a shot and lend Hopper a bike. We need all the bikes we can get on the grid. Maybe Dorna will consider a backhander since you will be propping up the grid. Let's face it if he stays on he will be assured points too! WIN WIN situation.....

Give it a rest, stay where you are. Why risk riding around on a bike that you know and everyone else knows that you cant win on? Then crash and you know there is  strong chance that Hopper will crash in motogp, then youre hurt for your current situation. Stay there get the team into WSBK and do what you do man. Moto Gp is slowly but surely going away... too expensive, too political, and not too exciting anymore. Race bikes that you actually can purchase. Dont get me wrong I like motogp, but it really doesnt promote competition unless you have multi-million dollar sponsors and lets face it, thats a dying breed. And booo on Yamaha for pulling out of WSBK. Hopefully there will be a strong team with the Yamahas and factory support.

unfinnished business

MotoGP is his only destination after making the same if not better pace than Bautista, means he simply does not need WSB

I agree he belongs to MotoGP what he did for Suzuki during his time in the GP paddock was good but for him to fulfill his potential he needs a better ride then Suzuki.

I didn't make it to Donington but watched the re-run. John is a class act and certainly has a lot to offer MotoGP (again) - he' has really done Jack Valentine proud this season. John deserves his time back in there again............could he be the man to get the red beast back on track again alongside Vale? Good luck for the rest of the BSB season John and I hope you get that ride next year!

I met Hopper at Philip Island Testing one year. He is a great bloke and easy to talk to get rid of Fagentino and put Hopper in.
