Motorcycle Racing Entries/Rumours that never happened

Carl Fogarty tried to revive his team as an MV Agusta entry for the 2008 World Superbike Championship but failed as the required sponsorship couldn't be found.

The Ilmor MotoGP entry.

After a couple of Wild Card entries in 2006 with Garry McCoy, the Ilmor X3 was due to compete full-time in 2007 with Andrew Pitt and Jeremy McWilliams. One DNF and DNS at the season opener in Qatar later, the team withdrew before the following round in Spain and were never seen again.

I was actually at my local test track (Almeria) when Jeremy was testing it, I seem to remember him falling off and breaking his leg ?
I have also seen him testing a BMW there when they were thinking of going into MotoGP

This is a picture of Jeremy McWilliams when he was in secret tests at Almeria with BMW in creating an 800cc MotoGP machine for the 2007 season.

Nicky Hayden originally signed a MotoGP deal with Yamaha for the 2003 season before switching for Honda during the off season

Mick Doohan was supposedly offered 50 million dollars to ride for the Roberts Yamaha team for 1997 - onwards but that obviously never happened
