Yoshimura out of WSBK for 2010

Yoshimura has withdrawn from the World Superbike Champs for 2010. Yoshimura Suzuki has scrapped plans to run in 2 more rounds of the 2010 WSBK championship. No word yet on any changes to the 2011 plans. Yoshi’s press release below:

Dear Yoshimura fans and supporters,

Although we have made up our plans at the beginning of 2010, we have reconsidered and decided not to participate following two race events this year.

Sep 26th, 2010 12th Round Italy (Imora) 
Oct 3rd, 2010 Final Round France (Magny-Cours)

The economy situation has been very tough after the crisis, and unfortunately motorcycle markets and the industries have been affected a lot since then.
From this fact, we would rather to hold the current plans at this stage and then aim to further possibility in the near future.

Thank you for all of your understandings, cheers and supports.

Yoshimura Japan Co., Ltd.
