It's a shame to see him leave 250's, I honestly think he is so much better than his results imply, but you can't blame him for trying to get a competative ride somewhere else.

I'm gutted, it was such a buzz to finaly have an Irishman part of the Motogp circus, I was hoping that he would eventually get a ride on the 800's... I know it was a big hope, oh well whatever

Its the best thing really, it was a tall order riding the Blusens Aprilia. He gave it a shot and who knows he might be back again in the future!!

Best of luck to him and I hope he gets a WSS ride next year

I really like Laverty, but like the article said, things were against him. He did not have the bike and the team that supported him to allow him to run well. His mistakes took there part as well.

He wanted to run in WSS for awhile now, and he will do very well.

It's a pity to see Norge out of GP's, but he was going nowhere fast on that bike. It'll be great to see him up front again though - if Vallelunga is anything to go by, he could be challenging for the title next year. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img]

Great result on Sunday, well deserved. Was torturous to see him heading up the same dead end 250 cul-de-sac as previous Brits Davies, Haslam, Vincent etc. I think the chassis on that bike was something stupid like a decade old.

Yeah, I seem to remember Julian Ryder saying something early this year about it being an ex-Harada chassis from '98. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif[/img]

Yeah i heard that too

It will be a shame to see him go, but in the same breath id much rather see him doing well in WSS ( perhaps even a championship or two ) than making up the numbers in 250's.

By the way, what a great race he put up this weekend. A good start to his WSS career [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

Finally got around to watching the WSS race, Laverty really impressed me. Great riding and great class too when it came to the post race interview. He will be a great addition to WSS, hopefully he can secure a competitive ride.
