Aitchison left high and dry after Spitlath Redmond put on hold

Australian racer Mark Aitchison has been left 'high and dry' following the shock withdrawal of his Spitlath Redmond Aprilia team less than a month before the start of the 2013 British Superbike season.

I don't want to sound callous and obviously I can't be sure but I cannot see why the illness of one of the team owners should mean that the 'entire' team (of 1 perhaps?) including a contracted (presumably) rider have to 'temporarily' withdraw. What exactly does/did Derek Redmond do? Just money/interviews? It is sad (most of all for John Dimbylow and family) but they are Letting down all the members of the team, including a rider who has literally travelled half way round the world, MSVR and paddock, Aprilia and fans. It strikes me that there may be more to it than 'simply' illness...All that being said, I hope he finds his way back to full health. I cant see how Mark will get another ride as this stage.
