Well said Mr Gibson, it is a fact that you do not go racing for free. Basiacally all the riders we have O/S are paying for the rides they have.This is how the system works.If you show promise and perform then maybe you can have a wage but there would be only a handfull of riders in this situation and that is a few years down the track. If you can obtain sponsors then they will assist your outlay. Sorry guys if you are all chasing a dream that Yamaha will walk up to you and say hey we want to give you $100,000 to ride for us then you will be waiting a long time. The other thing is if you race in Australia it costs you, buy a bike get the tyres and on and on it goes, there is no difference. Good luck Jordo and Mr Gibson i agree, well done for giving it a crack.
