Celani Suzuki to miss German event

Celani Suzuki have become the latest World Superbike Championship team to scale back their efforts in this year's series after confirming they will skip the upcoming round at the Nurburgring.

The Italian team plan to miss the German event with an eye to returning for the final three rounds in Italy, France and Portugal with a more competitive machine following a series of disappointing outings.

Celani Race, who returned to the Superbike top flight this year after a season spent in the Superstock series, began the year with Karl Muggeridge – who will ride a factory Suzuki at the Nurburgring – before switching to Alessandro Polita from Misano onwards.

So far, Celani have scored five points this season, with Muggeridge scoring four and Polita claiming a single point on his seasonal debut.

Is it just me or does it feel like a lifetime since WSBK was last on? I don't know who was responsible for this years calender but i'm not a fan of these big gaps in the schedule. Having a summer break is one thing, but having two long term breaks back to back is just poor. I feel iv'e almost forgotten whats going on and the championship seems to have lost its mojo for me. Maybe I just can't wait for it to start again as it's the championship i most look forward to. Nurburg can't arrive quick enough.

Hey Lord, Have to agree. I was thinking about the lengthy breaks this morning. I've forgotten what the acronym WSBK is. June 28th was Donnington. Followed by 4 weeks to Bruno, July 26, followed by 6 weeks to Germany, Sept 6.
