Effenbert boycott Donington WSBK

Effenbert Liberty Racing have decided not to bring their hospitality suite, the largest in the paddock, to the European World Superbike round at Donington. While Liberty Racing will support Sylvain Guintoli, Jakub Smrž and Maxime Berger this weekend, they will do so without their sponsor's hospitality.

They say they are doing this as a protest against what they believe was favouritism shown by the WSBK organisers towards certain riders at the weather-beleaguered World Superbike round at Monza last weekend.

Any idea what they're going on about Jared? Is it the incident where Guintoli wasn't allowed to start (his bike broke down on the sighting lap if I remember)?

Their reasoning is outlined in their unusual press release, and it's odd. I'll link to it in the article.

Looks like they changed it! Now it just says that "Our riders will be racing at Donington" and that's about it.
