No question about it: Hill is the man to beat this year. I hope he get's his 2nd title and maybe this way Swan Yamaha will consider entering the WSBK next year. If they have the money I think they should do so. The experience that Haga brings to the team and the talent of Hill will surely help them get decent results. Go Tommy! Go Yamaha!

That maybe the reason why haga is there this season get him sorted on the yam ready for a move to wsbk, his progress has been slower that i anticipated but its looking good for second part of the season for haga just hope if they do make the step up they have better luck than the cresent boys

Hill is showing what a truly class-act he is.

But WSB? Seriously?
I think Hill is good enough now.
Haga .... hummmmm .... maybe.

But those are oldish bikes and things have moved on.
They *might* do well if Yamaha really got behind them. But as it is I think Yamaha's focus is on Moto GP.
MAYBE because eevn when Spies blew everyone into the weeds most other R1 teams weren't achieving much. Which in turn meant there wasn't much benefit in sales of R1s.

swan yamaha pretty much owned by bsb as in palmer and higgs, they were the ones who got them the big swan deal and they help pay haga and hill wages. i dont think theyd be too happy if they buggered of to wsb, plus haga has pretty much said bsb is where he will finish up

i would like to see Tommy hill go onto wsb and give that a good crack think he def deserves it now

he is awesome round oulton park, i bet the others are happy the showdown rounds arent there cos he they would be seeing his backside again

Interesting point you've got there, onyabike. I was not aware of this. I agree that it would be a blow for BSB if Shaun Muir's team had left the competition, but I still hope that Yamaha will return to WSBK one way or another, I mean officially or as in the case of Ten Kate's Honda. At least they could half back a private team. No question that BSB needs strong teams too.
