Aspar contemplating Yamaha engine deal for 2014

Aprilia’s MotoGP effort could be dealt a major blow with its most high profile and successful squad contemplating ditching its ART machine for 2014. The Spanish-based Aspar squad, which has dominated the CRT category with Aleix Espargaro and Randy de Puniet, confirmed in Barcelona last weekend that it is locked in talks with Yamaha about a YZR-M1 motor lease deal next...

The point I reckon Jamie

Politics old boy

If only the world was so clear cut. A bit of horse trading and Japanese face saving to go through first. I think we'll end up with a more satisfying product short/ medium term. One agreeable to all parties but Casey Stoner. But then he doesn't really count anymore does he!
