WSBK Misano: Biggest WSBK field since 2009 set for Misano

The biggest WSBK grid for five years is set to line up at Misano this weekend following the inclusion of three wild-card entries.
Thirty bikes are set to start the seventh round of the 2014 World Superbike Championship at Misano, the largest field since the Donington Park round of the 2009 season.

Ivan Goi will make his second World Superbike Championship of the season as a wild-card at the Misano round, along with fellow Italian Matteo Baiocco and Michael Savary.

Goi, who regularly competes in the CIV Italian Superbike series, made a wild-card outing for the Barni Ducati team at Imola, the 34-year-old catching the eye by qualifying 13th only to crash out of the first race to rule him out of the second.

Nonetheless, he will get a second chance to impress at Misano, where he will be joined by CIV counterpart Baiocco, whom is set to ride a similar EVO-specification Ducati prepared by Grand Corse by AP Racing.

As well as Goi and Baiocco, Michael Savary has been entered to compete aboard a privateer MV Agusta for the Dream Team Company, though he has stated the debut may be delayed until Portimao.

Should the trio go ahead and make it to race day, the 30-strong grid will be the largest since Donington Park in 2009 when 31 bikes lined up.
