Aussie Ant West for Kawasaki Moto GP???

Apperantly (www.rgv250.co.uk under Race) aussie Anthony West will soon be riding for the Kawasaki Moto GP team. Apperantly he has already tested the bike! Anyone know anymore on the matter? Be nice if he did it's about time he got decent machinery.

Once i thought more than two strokes was masturbation. Now I realise that 4 feel better, and who am I to argue with my feelings.

West did test the Kwaka after Catalunya. He's also been riding the R6 in SuperSport though. The 250 ride he had has stopped. Who knows really. Not much was said last night at the WSB round either...

West parted ways with the Aprillia team, was'nt the fastest guy at the GP test but this was'nt really why he was there, Steve Martin (ex DFX WSBK rider) was also saying he will or has the chance to ride for Kawa GP squad for the remainder of the year, whether this is as a test or race rider was'nt clear.

West won again WSS in the dry to.....

If anyone needs to go up from WSS it is Sofuoglu atm. But yeah West was great last race and Sofuoglu finished 2nd but dropped down to 3rd after corrected times (cause race was stopped and the 3rd guy has 3 seconds when the race stopped), stupid rule imo.

cheers for the better info...would be great if he got the ride, it's long been said all he needed was the right machinery, his success in WSS kind of backs that up too.

he has demonstrated that he is a capable rider when given the opportunity and equipment...he has definitely been on a mission in WSS and i like the way he doesn't hold anything back...i just don't know how he is at development....hope he keeps the confederate flag helmet in motogp..
