WSBK grid 2012 taking shape

Kawasaki, meanwhile, has confirmed it will move away from Paul Bird Motorsport by taking its operation in-house, though the Provec Motocard.com team is expected to be heavily involved too. With this in mind, Joan Lascorz is likely to stay in 2012, while Tom Sykes is also now favourite to retain his ride.

Following its dominance in 2011, Ducati could be very well represented on the 2012 grid, with Effenbert-Liberty rumoured to be considering four bikes next year, two in its current guise and two run by Superstock front runners Barni Racing, while PATA Racing, which was formed as a joint venture between BRC and DFX, could possibly split again for 2012.

Finally, 2012 may also see the WSBK debut of KTM, which has strongly hinted at a possible wild-card appearance next season in preparation for a full debut in 2013.
