Splitlath Redmond announces temporary retirement from British Superbike Championship
THE Splitlath Redmond team regrets to announce its temporary retirement from the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship.
The team has been forced to put its 2013 BSB plans on hold due to the ill health of co-owner and founder John Dimbylow.
Fellow co-owner Derek Redmond explained: â€œIt is with great regret that Splitlath Redmond is announcing its temporary retirement from BSB. This is due to the ill health of John Dimbylow and both John and I would like to stress that this is a temporary measure.
â€œWe would like to take this opportunity to offer our sincere apologies to all of our loyal fans and supporters as well as our suppliers and most of all Piaggio UK, which has contributed greatly to the teamâ€™s efforts for this and over previous seasons.
â€œThis is by no means the end of Splitlath Redmond, it is simply an unavoidable and necessary action which the team is being forced to take at this time and we look forward to returning to competitive racing very soon.â€
Phil Read on behalf of Piaggio UK added: â€œIt is with great disappointment that we received this news. However, we wish John the best of luck with his health and future plans in Road Racingâ€
