This is of course great news. However, I still would like to know what this means for ParkinGo as they had a 3 year contract to run F3's in supersport. What the team was able to achieve in 2013 was fantastic and I was really hoping they would return with Iddon and Rolfo for 2014. Here is to hoping they will be back and to have 4 F3's running is supersport.

I'm trying to find out also, sounds like Iddon is going somewhere else, not sure where though. It would be great to have ParkinGo team out there also, a sort of measuring stone I would think.

RR You'd think, I would love to see which electronics company get's to sort this out.

Seems WSB is going to change the technical rules a fair bit, price controls, limited numbers of engines, cost capped suspension etc. This is part of a three stage cost reduction programme. Read this from motomatters.

Not sure MV will have a bike capable of being on the front three rows next year.

especially when you have Hodgson quoted saying this after riding it:
Quote:
"There's nothing I like about this bike, it’s the worst bike I’ve ever ridden. It’s horrible. It’s like riding a video game – there’s no throttle connection. Whatever’s going on in your hand is not going on in the engine – it’s just weird. Even flat-out it’s unpredictable. Sometimes you’ll be halfway down the straight and the power dies, like a load of traction control has come on and then it suddenly clears itself and you’re off again.

There’s a flat spot when you first get on the gas, then it clears and suddenly takes off. The chassis is weird, too. It’s horrible. You feel every bump on the track, yet there’s a lot of movement like it’s too soft in places. It’s like the chassis is too stiff and the suspension too soft – not pleasurable at all.

The riding position is good for the track, but the screen is far too low. Not a fan!"
