Agreed, Nakigami has been on thin ice for a few years imho. I’ve wondered why. Maybe it’s him being the only Japanese guy out there on a Japanese brand. I believe he really made a case last year, whenever he renewed, publicly that he really wanted to stay.
Maybe Big Red has a heart in a certain kind of way.
And yeah, this isn’t a year to start off slow.
You know the teams are gonna be watching, and grabbing
who they believe are gonna deliver, asap.
I read up a bit on this guy last week.
Seems he’s been into car racing for quite awhile.
As a driver and kind of team owner himself.
He’s been all over the American car racing scene.
Apparently he’s a pretty good driver also.
I believe he owns some kind of kart racing track.
His family has money.
How and why he ended up wanting getting into
motorcycle racing I dunno.
He seems American as apple pie.
Who knows, this might be a real good thing for motorcycle racing Stateside.
