The Aprilia engine is still in use on the racer. I think the engine has to be not more than 1000cc to race it. Also the street engine is 1200cc and cannot be used even if it was race ready. The best option is to keep with the Aprilia that they know is reliable and continue to develop the rest of the bike.

This is soooooo exciting, there's a chance the boys could actually do it! We all ready with our V4 deposits?

So Ben, what’s it to be...?

Is 5th place and no ‘iconic’ McPint ride enough?

Or are you gonna keep the deposit until next year and hope that McPint does a ‘Hailwood’?
