WSS: New Honda, Triumph teams set to enter

Two privateer Honda teams and a new Triumph outfit are set to join the World Supersport Championship in 2011.
The 2011 World Supersport Championship grid is beginning to form with the confirmation of two privateer Honda entries and a probable new Triumph team.

Alexander Lundh will return for a second season of WSS racing aboard the Cresto Guide Honda having completed his maiden year with a best finish of eighth at Valencia and 16th position overall.

He will be joined in the privateer Honda ranks by SMS Racing, which will enter a CBR600RR for Ondrej Jezek. The Czech rider steps up to the Supersport series after two seasons at FIM Superstock 1000 level.

Additionally, there is likely to be a second Triumph team on the grid in 2011 after the renowned Suriano Racing outfit confirmed its intentions to graduate from the Italian domestic series.

Having enjoyed success with Suzuki over the years, the team is plotting a switch to Triumph machinery in 2011 with riders Danilo Dell’Omo – who would move from Kuja Honda – and Fabrizio Perotti, who competed in the ParkinGO Triumph one-make series this year.

Prior to these announcements, only Provec Kawasaki, BE1 Triumph and Parkalgar Honda had confirmed its 2011 WSS rider line-ups.

next season will be one of Ten Kate's weakest seasons in WSS for a while, they are both Rookies, think Marino will do quite well, if Gino rea is anything to go by for SuperStock600 graduates, but Quarmby didnt impress me last year but that may be the broke leg he suffered earlier in the year, but the level in WSS will be alot more even next year so it may be a tough one TK.

Does it really deserve to be called World Supersport?? .... Are you kidding? Why dont you ask the riders who were shown up by Sofoglu in Moto2 or Max Biaggi after he had his ass handed to him by Laverty at his first official test.... Joker!
