West to BSB with Supersonic

"After my podiums and fourth place in BSB Evo last year, this season I had a single goal and that was to be back on the grid," said Muff. "After conversations with different teams, Danilo Soncini of Supersonic Racing offered me the chance to ride in his team.

"I'm so happy because they have a strong technical background with the official support from BMW Motorrad Italia. I am totally aware of what a big opportunity this is for me and I'll do my best to achieve the results.

"It certainly will not be easy with the entry of riders like my team-mate Anthony West and Noriyuki Haga, the level of competition this year has certainly increased. However, I can't wait to sit on my new bike for the first time!"

The Supersonic team, directed by team owner Danilo Soncini, had announced their retirement from WSBK in September 2011. The team will be equipped with factory specification S1000RR machines, supplied by BMW Motorrad Italia and adapted for the new BSB technical regulations.

"I'm still excited about everything that has happened in these past two months," said Soncini. "The decision to leave racing had left an emptiness that I was unable to fill in any other way than returning to racing, then there was an opportunity to compete in BSB.

"The championship is really the ultimate expression of passion for motorcycling and to be able to compete as an Elite Team fills me with pride.

"Unfortunately the project started late and thus we will not be able to attend the first test rides at the beginnig of March as the bikes are still under construction at BMW. From April 9th onwards we will however, not be caught unprepared but ready to entertain and have fun! Thanks again to all."

Wow, BSB is shaping up to be the best series for racing this year. I am an American that has been watching BSB for a few years now and I love the racing. I've been watching MotoGP, WSBK, and AMA for a number of years as well, and I can honestly say the coverage done on BSB is probably the best of all the moto series I watch. They get into the garages and make the team owners part of the drama. During the race they cover all of the race and not just what's happening at the front. The commentary done by Burnicle and Whitham is also in my opinion the best, as they know all of the riders and whats going on with them. I wish some other series would take a lesson from the BSB coverage, it's top notch entertainment. Looking fwd to a great season.
