Stalker strives for one final season in MCE BSB
Following the collapse of the Be Wiser Kawasaki team MCE British Superbike fan favourite Chris 'The Stalker' Walker has been without a ride. He has today confirmed speculation that he was in talks with Honda Racing to race with them in place of O'Halloran at the final round of the year at Brands Hatch.
Walker said on his Facebook page that it has been 'a tough few weeks since I got the phone call to say the Team was done for the reason.' However when asked by Honda whether he would be interested in riding in the spare seat alongside Linfoot and Tinmouth it was 'flattering' but his 'involvement and long term relationship with Kawasaki' plus his dealership in Grantham meant he had to say 'no to one of the best rides in the paddock'.
He did go on to say that he has asked Stuart Higgs (race director for the MCE BSB) to 'hold on to that number 9 for me just for now though, I'm down but not out and will push to be back on the grid again in 2016 for one final season of the MCE BSB on board the awesome looking new Kawasaki ZX10.'
It's a shame to hear that the Stalker will not be at Brands Hatch, however it's good to hear he hopes to be back in the paddock once more for one final season!
