What an unusually dull silly season thus far. I am DYING to know a few specifics of the non-factory guys:

- Will Pedercini get factory backing? Who will they field?
- Who will partner Giugliano? What will they ride?
- Will Crescent receive ANY backing from Suzuki?
- Will there be more new teams?

- What will the liveries look like?

@ RSMick...

Seriously? What a douche... That's only the confirmed riders/teams... And yes, WSBK IS flourishing. A total of 44 riders rode this season. 24 FULL TIME!!! And 9 Different race winners..

Wait until the satellite teams are announced THEN be an A55!

Your argument is pointless...

24 full time? were there?

Paolo Flamini in 2006, We have a full grid of 36 due to the rules we put in place in 2002 (when the japs except Suzuki pulled out) and this will maintain these grids for years to come. By the end of that year there was 26.
So many people slag Dorna and say they take all the money, well WSB don't even get paid for travel and pay for their tyres.
What satelitte teams? you mean like Pedricini, Grillini, supersonic? What really are the equivellant of CRT which I am sure you would say are a waste of time or grid fillers. Grillini are supposed to get more support from BMW, but won't change much, I was with them in Silverstone.
24 riders 3 more than Motogp which is supposed to be broken.
