The face of 2013, shrinking grids and spare riders?
Get this Superbike class running to Superstock rules asap, make the bikes easily affordable and swell the grids with wild card riders looking to bag a few scalps, back to racing in the 70's!!

I saw the list yesterday, it wasn't great to see that there will be only 20 riders. Altough the list is only provisional, the race will be in one and a half weeks, anything can change.

"aslong as wsbk has around 20 bikes with the major teams and a few support i will be happy"

Really, did you ever comment that SBK was better because it has more manufacturers and full grids?

"i think some of the super sport teams should step up like PTR etc they have 7 bikes in wss"

1 paid rider the others pay 350k for the privilege.
Another example of the crazy WSB travel fund. I and many others questioned whether Liberty could maintain a season, the only place you can buy the beer is in the liberty stores and the paddock (who sells things from the hospitality eh?)
I was a guest of Grillini at Silverstone and their bike is a superbike how the rules were originally. You only had to listen to the bike on track to hear what is wrong, no electronics the othe BMW's banging and popping all you get with the Grillini is straight engine, it still has the starter motor on board and fair play to them.

Have to agree with the comment about changing to Stock rules. But instead of pure Stock bikes, they should adopt the BSB regulations. A few teams moved up from the Superstock class into BSB for 2012, it's the right move!
