In the latest episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast, Steve English, Gordon Ritchie, and Charlie Hiscott look back at the Donington round of WorldSBK, and dive into the problem of finding and promoting talent. The Superbike Squad ask what Yamaha should do next, both at GRT and in the Pata Yamaha team, especially given the interest coming from the MotoGP paddock. Should Yamaha be looking at Tarran Mackenzie or other riders from BSB? Should they be looking at World Supersport? Should they keep Andrea Locatelli and Garret Gerloff, or be looking at MotoAmerica? And should Jake Gagne get another shot at WorldSBK?
Steve also speaks to Jonathan Rea for a Renthal Street Session interview, and Steve, Gordo, and Charlie discuss Rea's decision to sign on with Kawasaki for two more years. And the crew wrap up with their highlights of the Donington weekend.
