Cameron Donald has split with the Relentless Suzuki by TAS Racing team despite the pair recently announcing that they had reached an agreement for 2011.
It was announced this morning that the team has released Donald “due to unforeseen circumstances” and by mutual consent, from his 2011 International Road Racing contract.
“I’d like to thank Hector and Philip Neill and obviously Suzuki and all of the team’s loyal sponsors for their support,” Donald commented.
“We had a great partnership, but I now know it’s time to take a different direction. I also would like to thank the guys in the team who worked with me and were very much part of my success at TAS Racing this past couple of years.”
Donald rode to eighth place at the Macau Grand Prix just last weekend for the Northern Ireland based team, but after lengthy discussions with team manager Philip Neill, Donald will be released from his contract with immediate effect.
“We had a largely successful relationship with Cameron during his time at Relentless Suzuki by TAS Racing, and we must admit, he was a joy to work with,” Neill added.
“This is very much a joint decision and I must reiterate, there is absolutely no ill feeling. We wish him well in the future. The team is currently looking for a suitable replacement, but we will not rush our decision.”
Donald was unavailable for comment when contacted by MotoOnline.com.au this morning. Stay tuned for more.
