Colin Edwards confident of new Forward Racing deal

American veteran Colin Edwards is confident he will be re-united with a Yamaha YZR-M1 machine in 2014. The Texan’s Forward Racing squad has verbally agreed a deal with Yamaha to lease YZR-M1 engines for next season. Yamaha will also sell a standard chassis package to the Italian-based squad if required, so the new project is expected to be very competitive given it...

How long will Colin go on?

It's good to see him still battling for top CRT but it would have been nicer to see him battling at the front in Superbike these past two years instead of being happy just to finish in the top ten. Hopefully these leased YZR-M1 engines will be competitive so if Colin does sign for another year with Forward Racing, he can show people why he still has motivation to continue racing in Grand Prix.

Well he obviously enjoys his racing

Does the Texan Zepher. But as as team manager you'd have to wonder about the wisdom of putting one so long in the tooth, and one so badly exposed pace wise in the last few years, on an expensive pseudo prototype. 

Now young Aleix on one of these 'M1's' up against younger brother on ostensibly the same machine, that would be juicy to watch.

Colin will be fine

 He has had alzheimers for a couple of years now so this will be like a new challenge to him

 Hayden on a CRT there is more of a chance he will end up in WSBK next year rather then fighting for a couple of points.

Colin

Come on Colin hang up those leathers  , unless youre trying to beat Kneubuhler as the oldest GP rider? . As for Aleix Espargaro , I'll be the heretic ; I think the ART he rides is somehting De Puniet et al dont have , sure hes a good rider , but not THAT good , when the tyres have gone and the "Prototypes" have opened the taps fully 1/3rd distance .

Poor 'ole' Colin

he's turning into a joke, he's a great guy and was a great WSB racer, but his time is over anyway you look at it, in MotoGP, he needs to run a team, open a bar or stick with his boot camp, imo.

Fair point Richard

That Aprilia flatters, the chassis sounds sublime. A better bike than RdeP though? No reason to believe so. RdeP is another who's out stayed his MotoGP welcome in my books.

Colin's not doing himself any favours by constantly 'hanging on in there'
