BOS KTM have released an unprecedented statement that they are currently not happy with new signing Benoit Paturel.
The team said Benoit has decided he doesn’t like the KTM, ” Benoit and his entourage decided that the 450 F (World Champion) and the part-cycle did not suit him, without any discussion…”
They then say, “We will do everything we can to get out of this situation as soon as possible.”
Meanwhile Paturel has been linked with the fill-in ride at HRC Honda to replace the injured Brian Bogers, so we will keep you up-to-date with any developments.
You can see BOS KTM’s full Facebook statement below:
“Sorry for the little information on our second pilot, but for now, tests are only performed with Jordi Tixier, and some test-riders…
Indeed, we have still not convinced benoit paturel to train and test our machines in good conditions.
After a few days of rolling, Benoit and his entourage decided that the 450 F (World Champion) and the part-cycle did not suit him, without any discussion…
This is a very big disappointment you can imagine for all the members of the team, especially knowing the time chrono made by Jordi right now at redsand mx park…
But the rule is simple in GP: no training, no testing = zero result.
It’s too late now to go back.
The investment granted by the team to take benoit was therefore, and we were wrong that helping a driver back to the wall would be a positive option for everyone. It’s not…
We will do everything we can to get out of this situation as soon as possible, so as to avoid disrupting the season of Jordi Tixier and the service to our customers.
Our return to mx has made it possible to get to know our technology, and the first pilots are satisfied, in the sand as on the earth: we have to keep going, we won’t get anything!”
