Brett McCormick just can’t catch a break this year; now, he’s going to miss the final round of the World Superbike series.
It’s not McCormick’s fault, though; Liberty Racing, his team in the WSBK series, is adding another wacky manoeuvre to their long list of weird moves.
The team has been firing racers all summer (dropping three of the original four riders they had at the season’s start), they skipped the Russian round, and now this.
Supposedly, the bikes are even on the trucks in France, just waiting to be offloaded at Magny Cours. But, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen, so McCormick now has to either sneak on to the grid another way, or start planning for next season.
Our suggestion? Find a new team, one with actual stability.
