Martin en McCoy rijden volgend jaar voor Foggy Petronas. Jurgen zei drie opties te hebben.
1. FPR
2. Ducati SS
3. Iets ander met Ducati.

weet iemand wat het laatste kan zijn, ik zou zeggen D'antin Ducati? (stappen misschien over op Bridgestone trouwens) maar NCR krijgt een fabrieks 999 voor Lanzi, maar er is geen tweede rijder genoemd. En de bezetting van het WKSS is ook nog open geloof ik

Ik las dat ie wel belang bij petronas had?

daar zullen we spoedig achterkomen, dit stond gisteren op de site van petronas:
The Foggy PETRONAS Racing team 2004

It's the time you have all been waiting for - the announcement of our 2005 rider line-up!

Well, almost!!

The two riders to replace Troy and Chris will be revealed on this site tomorrow afternoon.

But Club FPR and Web Subscribers have the chance of obtaining a sneak preview.

Both riders will be visiting our Burton premises tomorrow, so keep an eye on our Webcam facility to see if you can make out who they are.
ben benieuwd :)


edit: doen ze net updaten :P
Het wordt dus Garry McCoy en Steve Martin bij petronas.

Carl Fogarty has signed Australian pair Garry McCoy and Steve Martin for his Foggy PETRONAS Racing team’s 2005 Superbike World Championship campaign.

The two riders will have their first taste of action on the PETRONAS FP1 at a three-day test in Valencia, Spain, next week.

Carl said: “I am very pleased to have been able to replace our riders from last year, who finished 9th and 11th in the championship, with two guys who finished 6th and 7th. We were very impressed by the standard of riders that were interested in joining us next year, which provided a few headaches. But, out of all of them, I felt Garry and Steve were the hungriest for success - and with points still to prove.

“Garry is a very exciting rider, with a proven pedigree, who I think will adapt well to our bike. He has a radical style and he has won GPs on a high revving two-stroke machine. The FP1’s power characteristics are probably closer to that type of machine than the Ducati he rode last year.

“Steve is probably the most under-rated rider on the world scene. He wants to be noticed and now it’s up to him to make people sit up and take notice. He is a gutsy competitor, with good set-up abilities, who suffered with reliability problems last year so he was the name that nobody mentioned – but they will now!”

McCoy, 32, completed his first season in World Superbikes last year, finishing sixth in the championship and winning his home race at Phillip Island. Brought up in speedway, McCoy is known for his exhilarating riding style, sliding the back wheel into corners. During his career in Grand Prix racing he won three 500cc GPs in 2000, when he finished fifth in the championship. Before switching to superbikes he achieved a total of 17 GP podiums, including five victories.

Garry said: “I am really looking forward to it. It is still only early days for the FP1 but, from the results the team has been achieving lately, it’s clear it has potential. I never set myself targets, I just go out to win. But I am really hoping to do better than last year as I now know a lot of the tracks that I didn’t know in my first season, which made it really tough. I am also really pleased to have Steve as a team-mate and the chance to share information in trying to get the bike up there challenging for podiums.”

Martin, 35, is a former Australian Superbike champion, who spent three years in World Superbikes with a Pirelli development team before the single-manufacturer tyre rule came into force last season. Despite a series of agonising technical failures during races he finished seventh in the championship standings, including five podium finishes. His natural talent was also underlined with three pole positions in 2004.

Steve said: “I am really excited by this opportunity and I am going to give it everything I have got. I know the team has a great bunch of guys and a great bunch of technicians who will be right behind me and I am sure that we can challenge consistently for podiums and better my seventh place in last year’s standings. I have seen the FP1 out on track and it clearly handles really well and had good pace for only its second year of racing. It improved a lot during last season and I am sure that the improvement will continue and that we will be on the pace for 2005.”

Steve and Garry replace Troy Corser and Chris Walker, who were 9th and 11th in the championship respectively.

Waarom toch weer allemaal zo negatief over Neerlands beste motorcoureur? Typisch Nederlands... |( Wees blij dat er uberhaupt nog 1 NL coureur is die op top niveau kan rijden... als JvdG er mee stopt, hoe lang zal het duren voor er weer een Nederlandse rijder in de top van het WK SS of (achteraan) in de MotoGP mee rijdt?
