Crutchlow Stays At LCR Honda For 2016

Ex World Supersport rider Cal Crutchlow’s LCR future was in doubt recently when it broke that he had started talks with Pramac Ducati for 2016, and was linked with a possible move to Marc VDS.

Longtime Honda campaigner LCR Honda has endured a hard season of sponsor issues and drama, this after a bold sponsor and team intro last February.

The team debuted a Castrol Honda paint scheme at the recent Michelin test.

Crutchlow said at the Indy GP that he was “talking to everyone” about a ride for 2016.

Now it’s learned that Crutchlow’s immediate future will remain with LCR Honda. Crutchlow has agreed to stay with the LCR team through 2016 where he will ride a satellite Honda RC213V.

Aussie Jack Miller will probably also remain a Honda rider, but may be piloting an Aspar RCV1000 in 2016 instead of the LCR unit he is on now.
