The manufacturers don't have contingency programs there?

Yamaha pays out 500 bucks for a win in CMRA in A and C superstock. (the same or more in other series')

It cost him (his pocket & Personal Sponsorship) approx $70,000 last year to go racing at BSS level so yeah, he'd sure like to do it for free

this weekend just gone my buddy came back out of retirement to race again.
This time it was on the Indy circuit (Brands Hatch, Kent, England) but a decision to run Pirelli slicks and not the Dunlops he used last time may have cost him places!!!!
Some pics from the event I thought I'd share with you
