Westy is back .. replacing Krummenacher

From Westy's facebook and also - WorldSBK




Australian rider called up as replacement for remainder of the season
Following the announcement that Randy Krummenacher (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) has been forced to sit out of the remaining four rounds of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, it has been revealed Anthony West will take the seat.

The condition of the Swiss riders right wrist injuries began to worsen during training for the Prosecco DOC Portuguese Round, and it was announced last week he will be unable to compete for the remainder of the WorldSBK season.

Anthony West will make his return to the WorldSBK class, after competing in six rounds last season, in which he secured six top ten finishes. Delighted to return to the championship, West is keen to get to know the team and to get in the saddle of the ZX-10RR. With a podium to his name already this season in WorldSSP, he has a strong drive to produce some competitive performances.

West explains his delight:"I am very happy with this opportunity to return to World Superbike riding a Kawasaki with a strong team like Puccetti. I would also like to thank my EAB WEST RACING team for understanding my needs and giving me the chance to take this opportunity. Bakel Ferry and Peiro have been working hard to be able to continue running in Supersport this year, so it's also thanks to their efforts that I need this opportunity to return to Superbike. I'm excited to finish the season with a new bike and a new team, I'm looking forward to arriving in Portugal, and getting to know the Puccetti Racing team. "

Westy must have an excellent rapport and reputation with racing teams. He has race at the top level of GP, feeder categories,Wdbk, and national series, and they keep calling him up. I hope he continues to find work. He deserves it.

Interesting isn't it Jums.

No matter what the situation may be, no matter who he rides for or where he rides, it would seem that he has a very good reputation in terms of 'fill in' rider as the opportunities keep cropping up for him which only shows the regard in which he is held.

Yes, in years past some have questioned him but there would be very few riders around today who have ridden the variety of bikes he has, in the range of organisations and with the level of result, never mind doing it all in the one year.

IMO only here, but riders like this should be admired for their tenacity as whilst he may not make money, he clearly enjoys what he does and will give up anything to achieve it.

Go Westy!!!!
