This would be a great development if it comes off... Alstare is a first class operation and it would only be good for WSBK if they come back.

Checa and Guintoli is a very strong pairing... It looks like Sylvain may have been onto something when passing up the Suzuki deal after all. Speaking of which, I think Cluzel is a great addition to that team and the top flight in general.

Some privateer team should get McCormick on a Panigale. "The Kid" looked the part towards the end of last season, plus he's already ridden the Panigale, having originally been pegged to ride one in Superstock last year.

If this news will become true....what an excellent choice to get alstare back together with ducati. They have the kick , the simpatical way of being full of passion and experience without being snobbing the fans. So sorry they couldn't go ahead with suzuki, a big lost for the japanese company. But nevermind we will be there to follow wsbk , an excellent championship now under dorna which will give more coverage to wsbk trough press and tv.

Nice to read this possibility and look forward to see again alstare at the wsbk with their always great graphical ideas...and their passion to archieve the best possible result for ducati. Or do we have to write now DUCAUDI ?

Here over in the USA, we are crazy about Ducati and having taken the steps to offer the factory bikes to the well-knowed and appreciated Batta alstare would be incredible. Hopefully they will be able to find the budget for the second rider. Guintoli, the french rider did impressive races this season. Or a young gunner ?

This bike looks like a WEAPON!

The back wheel look like it isn't even attached to the bike.

I'm gutted Althea won't be back next season as I believe they've done a great job but it's great to see Alstare back.
