Anthony West looking for sponsors

Claiming rule teams will be the future in MotoGP and Dorna’s CEO Carmelo Espeleta has stated that he will only help teams that use CRTs, but finding sponsors who will fund teams and riders in this current economic climate is a full-time job and sometimes the usual channels don’t work.

Parkalgar Honda and Bogdanka PTR World Supersport team publically admitted via web they’ll hire an aspiring rider if he brings € 350,000 with him and this is the current situation for many riders everywhere.
Newly signed MotoGP Speed Master CRT rider Anthony West is also in this situation, and to try to support himself has taken out this ad to find sponsors, any sponsor and when a rider is desparate to find sponsors by taking out in the wanted ads, you know that he’s sadly in that black hole of a low-pay or no-pay ride.

When West was riding for Kawasaki back in 2008 he found himself in debt for $955,000 with his own father who personally helped support West’s racing career over the years.
