WSBK: Stiggy Racing splits with financial provider S2 Racing


Stiggy Racing Honda will complete the remainder of the 2009 World Superbike and Supersport Championship on its own feet after terminating its partnership with financial provider S2 Racing.

“I am thankful for what the partners of S2 Racing have done for the team,” said Stiggy Racing Honda Team owner Johan Stigefelt. “S2 Racing has given the team an opportunity that would have been hard to achieve on my own. It is just very disappointing to conclude that they failed to fulfill their commitments with the team throughout the year.”

Stigefelt added: “Although I am left in the dark financially, I still feel the responsibility to continue the season in a successful manner and give the support to the team, our riders and our staff to ensure that they, together with our partners and sponsors, continue to be part of a memorable year.”

Stigefelt also added that he will soon make an announcement regarding the future of the team and its participation in the 2010 World Superbike and Supersport Championship.
