Relentless Suzuki to focus on one BSB entry?

Relentless Suzuki appears to confirm it will enter just Josh Brookes in the 2011 British Superbike Championship.
Relentless Suzuki looks set to focus its attentions on just a single entry to the 2011 British Superbike Championship as the first pre-season test in Spain looms.

The team, which is receiving backing from Suzuki GB for the first time in 2011, heads into the season with an ambitious plan to succeed in BSB, British Supersport and National Superstock, as well as selected road races.

However, according to a note on a recent press release from the team, the Irish-based team will have just one GSX-R1000 available to race in BSB, with the long-confirmed Josh Brookes described as its 'sole representative'.

BSB race winner Alastair Seeley will ride the new GSX-R600 in the British Supersport class, while Guy Martin will be its road racing entrant, with several outings at Superstock level also planned.

It is. I suppose the upside is the bike's well developed so all being well it'll be more about Brookes adapting to it than desperately in need of another rider to push the development faster.
