Milwaukee set to withdraw support for SMR Yamaha for TT

Ian Hutchinson and Josh Brookes chances of racing at this years TT appear to be becoming even slimmer as the Yamaha squad's title sponsor Milwaukee Power Tools are rumoured to be about to withdraw their support for the Isle of Man event. MCN sources say a statement is expected today announcing the decision in the latest twist in the deepening row...

Milwaukee/Hutchy.

 After everything Hutchy has been through this seems petty by Milwaukee and the TT rule makers. We need riders like Hutchy at the TT, they should be doing everything that they can to ensure he rides. I know he can not be treat any different to the other riders and teams, but I can not believe that there is not a solution to this. Sounds like it is some jobsworth justifying their job.

SMR and the TT

The TT organisers are a law unto themselves and are only a self serving bunch of idiots, the facination with money making is all that counts and if banning the electronics means the top teams and riders are missing, so what, many smaller (sorry) teams with little or no experience will fill the void, but if the accident rates go up who's to blame.. Why don't they go the whole way and ban the superbike class and just have road bikes with no modifications at all, yes I know thats the superstock but even they have some modifications. Going back in history manufacturers have always pushed technology as far as they could, think of the manx norton, built just to race the TT. I pay good money (and it keeps going up) to watch the best riders and bikes tackle this course but the organisation and meddling are making me think twice about going again.

Yamaha at the TT

Read the article suggested below, but how many times have you heard the same story about big H in WSB, GP etc. when the competition catches up?  But what I really found ironic was the organisers statement about changing the rules to make it cheaper for teams to come, when all the time the rip off continues as far as the fans go. Increasing prices puts a lot of people off attending (I know, the hotel I stopped at last year increased costs by nearly 150%), use your influence to reduce costs to the fans and you will increase revenue by more people attending, paying more into the islands economy, then you can support more teams by reducung their costs.
