As the captain in Cool Hand Luke said, "What we've got here is failure to communicate." Stiggy Racing today announced that they were severing their relationship with Partner S2 Racing stating, "that they (S2) failed to fulfill their commitments with the team throughout the year." In the last 3 races of the season, Stiggy has been forced to reduce their rider line-ups to one per class amid pronouncements of financial calamity by team principal Johan Stigefelt.
In the Stiggy Universe, S2 was the financial end and Stiggy was the technical side. Apparently the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing with Stigefelt claiming that he was "left in the dark financially". Even though straits are dire financially this year, Stigefelt feels that he'll be able to field a team next year, although most believe it will be a reduced effort, confined to WSS or one rider in Superbike, depending on what rumor you chose to believe.
