Good te read this! Maybe this also mean Suzuki out from GP, but we will see. A Hopkins-Hill duo would be strong, but IMHO Alstare is a strong team too, let's wait who could be their rider(s).

hopper and hill would be an awesome team but i see it being more like camier and hill

as think hopper will get a moto gp ride with suzuki or lcr honda

Only one reason not to sign Hopper for this ride, and that is if he is already unavailable. I think Camier, if it's one bike, and Camier-Hill if the budget allows two.

Excellent news! Silverstone WSB must have convinced them that they have a competitive interesting to see who the rider(s) is (are)....Hopper if the Motogp ride doesn't work out, Camier has the benefit of 2 years in the series and needs the right bike/team combo to fullfill his potential, Tommy, given the oppertunity, needs to move up and not stagnate in BSB.
Its just good to see a British team having the balls to do this. - Unregistered

They confirmed a few days ago before this announcement that regardless of whether they were in BSB or WSB for 2012 they would be fielding a 2 rider team.

In an ideal world I'd like Hopper to go back to GP (pref with Suzuki) and then have all brit line up with Crescent in WSB with Camier and Hill.

Jack has already said that it will be a two rider team whether or not they are in BSB or WSB.
I'd love to see Leon and Tommy in the same team. My house would be interesting to say the least...i would have to split my loyalty between Nori and Tommy. My missus is a massive Leon fan...if it wasn't for the two i have mentioned i would be too. How many times will my dinner be in the proverbial dog lol?

Tommy knows most of the tracks after his unfortunate stint with Althea Honda and he'll have seen how track knowledge counts for little in this series given what Ben and Cal have done previously....i am rather excited by this prospect. Still wondering if the Swan Yamaha's are going to stay in BSB...afterall the bikes are WSB spec and they won't be allowed to run them in BSB next year

I say the duo needs to be Camier and Ellison...Had Ellison stayed with Swan this season..He would have been where Hill was..He is also a good development rider..I know I will get alot of flack for this...but its just my opinion....
