Sungguh ironi memang mendapat kabar ini, kita diperlihatkan betapa semakin mahalnya ongkos untuk ikut balapan bergengsi di MotoGP musim 2012.

Sebelumnya West diharapkan dapat bersama tim Speed Master dengan menggunakan mesin CRT Aprilia, namun West berujar dia terpaksa pensiun dini dari dunia balapan dan kembali ke Australia mencari kerjaan lain.

Berikut statemen di akun official Facebook miliknya.

“I (ANTHONY WEST) will not race in moto gp this year or any other race because I can not find sponsorship to pay the SPEED MASTER team, Because all teams are asking for money from the riders only the rich can race in motogp / moto2 / moto3, I can not even afford to ride a year for free, As i have YET to be payed from my former team MZ Germany Moto2 team. I had my car mx bike and my house for sale trying to keep the ride and even gave the house as a guarantee if I did not find the money but was not enough. I will most likely not race any more and will retune back to australia to find a normal job. Sorry to my fans.”

Mattia Pasini didaulat untuk menggantikan posisi West di tim Speed Master.
