Andrew Pitt officially retires from motorcycling, not from the world of two wheels

In the end it could not be and the good of Andrew Pitt has officially announced that he is leaving the world of competition. The reason we have to look for in the career of Brands Hatch corresponding to British Superbikes of the year 2010, where the Australian pilot injured his left shoulder. A nerve injury that has become irrecoverable at 35. Of course, he leaves with a record that is more than enviable.

And the thing is that Pitt has gone through all the important world championships: from Superbikes to Supersport, through MotoGP or even the odd little step in Moto2. Come on, a true two-wheel worker who also acted as a tester on occasion. His greatest achievement has been achieving no less than two Supersport world titles, one in 2001 with Kawasaki and the other in 2008 with Sling. And between those dates, without a doubt those that will be burned into his memory, much more to tell …

After his title in Supersport, he became one of Kawasaki's henchmen, to the point that he made the leap with the brand to the world championship. MotoGP. After the results were not very fruitful in any case, he returned hand in hand with Yamaha to the World Superbikes, where he achieved a victory and six podiums. Finally, his return to Supersport with the team Have Kate Honda, It took him back to the top. And so on until the fateful 2010, where after starting the season in Superbikes with the team Reitwagen BMW Team, it disappeared after a few tests. Anyway, they gave him the opportunity in that blessed madness that is the British Superbike by the hand of Motorpoint yamaha with the result that I have already commented to you.

In his farewell, Andrew does not forget anyone, as you can see in the following statements:

Well then another one of the old guard leaves, one of those that I have followed since its inception through the different competitions. We can only wish him the best in all the projects that he comments and that he will continue to carry out. One thing is for sure, and that is that you will remain very involved in the world of two wheels. And it is that Andrew Pitt does not imagine himself far from this wonderful world, better for everyone.
