NGM Mobile Forward Racing Information:

Originally the first of the CRT projects to be announced, the Forward Racing team had boasted previous experience of the premier class when running a lone Kawasaki for Marco Melandri under the Hayate guise in 2009. Despite MotoGP’s elder statesman Colin Edwards finishing last year’s opening race as top CRT, even his vast knowledge of development of both machines and tyres was unable to turn the BMW-Suter into a regular contender. As such, the team have switched to the FTR-Kawasaki combination, and have given the Texan some development back-up in the form of Claudio Corti.
