The 2009 World Superbike entry list has been completed by a surprise bid from Superstock 600 graduates TKR Switzerland.

Marked as the 32nd and final entrant of a bumper field this season, TKR Switzerland will enter a fourth Suzuki GSX-R 1000K9 for Austrian rider Roland Resch.

The team competed in the Superstock 600 series this year with the pairing of Dane Kenny Tirsgaard and local rider Christian Von Guntern. Tirsgaard was their best rider, finishing 15th in the standings.

Resch, meanwhile, makes the substantial leap to the series and the team having won the 2008 Suzuki GSX-R European Cup. He won two races at Donington Park and Magny-Cours on the way to the title.

He will join Alstare's Max Neukirchner and Yukio Kagayama, as well as Celani's Karl Muggeridge, in piloting a Suzuki on the World Superbike grid this year.
