Its great to see such a large grid but i just hope and pray that no riders or teams drop out during the season because of a lack of sponsorship,it seems some are still struggling to find funds.after the first wsbk round i just cant wait for this season to start :D

Just shows what you can do with a few rule changes to cut costs and get more bikes on the grid especially in these troubled times. Bet WSBK will be watching how the evo class experiment works in 2012 with a view to adopting certain aspects in 2013.

hate to say it, but one person will stand out like a sore thumb as the slowest... hope he proves me wrong!! predict a DNQ or two

on the positive side... top 10 should be in wsbk!! Cant wait for BSB to become EBK!!! Benefit the Motorsportvision brand and Thundersport GB can take over the home stage!! with the stock championships

Sad to see Luca Scassa in BSB and not in a World Championship. He will struggle to get back now as learning new tracks and the hot competition will work against him.
Wish him good luck though.
It's going to be a good season in BSB for the spectators.

I can hardy wait for this season to start. Racer's fortunes go up and down and it will be interesting to see how riders of the stature of Haga and Scassa, for example, deal with the apparent reduction in rank. Hopefully it will give them the incentive to up their games and make this a classic season.
Can't wait to see how Abdulaziz Binladen goes!

@ Chris
So who is the rider, who will look like a fat thumb.

The line-up looks awesome, bsb will again be the main championship to watch AGAIN.

Iv waited all winter for the raceing to get started, but WSBK didnt really get me all excited last week.

Im afraid it is Binladin. I hope he proves my reservations wrong, but I fear he may struggle.

I'm in no way having a go at his inclusion in the line-up, just a little worried for the lad.
