Staring annoyed with self after "stupid crash"

Wednesday, 10 April 2013

Bryan Staring’s MotoGP™ career began with the unenviable fact of becoming the second retirement of the season.

The Australian GO&FUN Honda Gresini rider surprised himself with the pace achieved in pre-season testing, before going on to qualify 23rd for the Commercial Bank Grand Prix of Qatar. His race ended on the second lap.

“I am disappointed because I didn't want to finish my MotoGP debut in this way,” the CRT class rider explained. “We made progress throughout practice but then I ruined it all with a stupid crash. I am disappointed for myself and for the team, who have helped me out so much. Hopefully I can make up for it in America.”

In 2012, Staring competed in the Superstock 1000 series and celebrated three race victories en route to fourth place in the final championship standings.
