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 Dellâ€™Omo â€“ who would move from Kuja Honda â€“ 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.
