laverty and hill would be a good team pairing for crescent,they paired well in swan team,and both should be mature enough for the task,and know the suzuki well.dont think a young hot shot would suit the effort,seeleys is wanted by hm plant honda i hear

Whoa, slow down!
Lots of talk about Tommy Hill being part of a 'dream team', but WSBK operates a conventional scoring system... ..and look who would've won BSB under a regular format.

Yep, Shane Byrne.

Shane has served some tough years in both MotoGP & WSBK- moving up to the world champs is tough.
Sucess in the UK does not instantly mean success on the world stage. Just ask Camier!

Tommy Hill derserves a shot, but as a number 2 rider at first.
Slowly slowly catchy monkey.

RoadKing, i know he's your son-in-law so was expecting that lol. To be completely honest, James does deserve a decent ride on a superbike whether thats in the British or Worlds given his recent performances in BSB and WSS

Does this mean Crescent will have no involvement in BSB at all then?
It will be great loss to the British championship though brilliant to see a British run team in WSBK

Fabrizio was the highest placed suzuki rider because he was the ONLY suzuki rider, bar the 1 or 2 wildcard appearances by yoshimura. If i joined alstare next year and crescent didnt go i would be suzukis highest placed rider too. does that mean im as good as fabrizio ??? LOL

Sorry if I've missed something and am asking the obvious, but, any word on what sort of support they'd receive???

Nice to see new teams on the circuit. If only they'd run the old Blue and Yellow Rozla colours ala Tom Sykes...

Hopefully they will be riding the new GSXR-1000.
I have heard great things about the bike supposedly being quicker than the BMW!
Tommy Hill deserves a shot at WSBK in my opinion he has done all he can in BSB and WSBK is the next logical step.
He knows the Crescent Suzuki team inside out having ridden for them the year before last.
If they can get factory support he would be up near the front. It would be great to see 2 fully blown Factory Gsxr,s next season and see Suzuki back on top.
