Liberty confirm Moscow absence, promise return
Liberty Racing will miss the World Superbike event in Moscow, but will return to competition for the final three races of the season.
The Czech team's name was missing from the entry list for the championship's first trip to Russia next week, prompting speculation about their future in the sport.
But a press release has confirmed the team intends to return after a structural re-organisation of the organisation.
"The last part of the season is a prelude to a constructive reorganisation of its (Liberty Racing's) human, technical and logistical resources for the next racing season,” the statement read.
“Looking for the next round, the Liberty Team is overhauling its staff organisation and sport planning for next year, when Liberty Racing will be at the start of the World Superbike championship determined to improve its results.
“That decision involves also the riders of the Czech team, Kuba Smrž and Maxime Berger, who will arrive in Germany at the beginning of September ready and motivated, while the recovery Brett McCormick is ongoing.
“The Liberty Racing Team continues in its commitment to motorsport not only animated by the desire to obtain significant performance results but also investing in an increasingly profitable and targeted way, thus building its future by analysing and improving its present with care and foresight.”
