Honda Offers Michael Schumacher Factory Ride schumie hrc 560x251

Michael Schumacher, Formula 1 Demi-God Michael Schumacher, is rumored to have been offered an open invitation to race a factory backed Honda CBR1000RR in the World Superbike Championship. Schumie has been testing bikes a lot lately. Taking corners for both Honda and Ducati, and while he has adimantly denied any interest of taking on motorcycle racing (all evidence to the contrary), he does seem to be skilled on the -2 wheels machines.

Despite the shooting down of racing speculation, Schumacher is still set on racing in the German Championship. HRC’s Carlo Fiorani was quoted as saying, “For the moment he has not asked us to race in the 2009 world championship…but if he wants to, there is a way for him (to do it). All he has to do is ask us.”
