Wheres Shane Byrne?

Been watching a lot of WSBK and MotoGP CDs thanks to the Batt-Man. Went through 04-05 of MotoGP and 05 of WSBK. I have the 02 famous CD of WSBK and just picked up 03 season today. My goal is to get as many race CDs as I can, I'm turning into a couch motorcycle racer bum addict potato. Just by watching its fun to see how careers begin and events that are turning points, even during a race. Anyway, a fellow by the name of Shane Byrne (I think thats the spelling) riding a Ducati 998RS was a wildcard entry for the Brans Hatch race in England. I think they called him Shaky? He won both races against the likes of the 999F03 Ducatis and the top riders at the time. I never heard of the guy, I'm sure many here have. I watched the rest of the series and didn't see his name again on the board, what ever happened to him? I believe he is Irish, I'll bet he has raced in the Isle of Man.

Yes his nickname is Shakey!
He has raced for Renegade Ducati.

This year he is on the Rizla Suzuki in the British SBK series.

I have several tees and hats from him.
He had a great run for awhile.
In 2004 and 2005 he did pick up a ride with KR Team Proton.
But with Keeny jr coming back, he was without ride.
So he is off to Rizla Suzuki.....
