It will be interesting, and hope there will be wildcard at other races too.

What is worrying that there are only European riders in the grid. At the start of last year there were Hopkins, Aoyama, Mercado, Aitchison, McCormick, from every part of the world. This year the races will be more global, but what kind of world championship this is, if the riders are from only one continent? Superstock only runs in Europe, but they have riders from everywhere, and even BSB have racers from Australia and America!

Up to 18 then.
Crash still avoiding the big news about the mess of the Indian round, Dorna need to pull off a miracle to save it. If it does go ahead half the teams won't be going without a massive subsidy from Dorna.

WSBK needs to get to the same technical level as national series to enable more teams to get a wild card. Theese days it is almost impossible because teams would have to build a new bike just for one race.

If Wayne Maxwell was racing I'd be more interested. KevCurtain will go we'll though and despite being old is still an awesome SS pilot. Top 5 for him possible.
