very strong line up indeed have to say i think gowla could be the dark horse next year not that it would be suprising after seeing his 2nd half of the season was mixing it up with the big boys, now level playing field in terms of power! who knows what he can do

alex is very quick and seemed settled on this bike i think he could also be right up there to, and you def cant rule out westy

all credit to wfr for fielding all british young talent

To me theres a kick in the teeth for alot of people giving Lowes a chance but whatever. Apart from that every part of this storey is very viable indeed.

Good luck all.

Good for WFR fielding all young british riders but what happened to 16 x 2 rider teams.Will this mean other teams can run 3 riders also and are the organisers now going to allow single rider teams like SMT back in.
The organisers should take any riders with funding in place wanting to enter superbikes into the championship regardless of it being a 1/2 or 3 rider team.
The country is in financial meltdown and the organisers will struggle to get 32 riders in superbike fullstop,if they have to run in a 2 rider team they will struggle for 10 teams.
The 2 rider teams can all make statements of intent but can the teams follow them up come the start of the season.

They were given special dispensation by Stuart Higgs to run three riders. Like BSB fan I don't know what the implications of that are.

On a side note - the WFR bikes were very bare this year - I hope they have some decent sponsorship next year.

Sick cylinder . the WFR bikes were rather bare in 2011 but there are certain people in the paddock that dont rely on sponsorship,they use their own money.I dont know the situation at WFR but they appear to be well funded as they have all the right people in the garage and the bikes are always top draw.i know of other people in BSB that dont require sponsorship which is a very nice position to be in ,especially in the present economic climate.

Very interesting team this,and that's one hell of a rider line up.
If the team is sufficiently funded to require no sponsorship,turn the bikes out completely black-or better still,leave them carbon.Awesome.
Seriously though,i hope they can mount a serious challenge next year as they bring a lot to the BSB table.
