A new team managed by former World Superbike Champion Troy Corser is set to be revealed imminently, with Josh Brookes and Leon Camier rumoured to ride a pair of BMW S1000RRs.

The 1996 and 2005 champion has previously spoken of a plan to move into WSBK team management and was tipped to be on the grid in 2014, but budgetary issues would force him to postpone plans for a 'Down Under' team until 2015 at the earliest.

Nonetheless, Corser has remained in close contact with the BMW manufacturer he ended his illustrious career with in 2011 and has now reportedly reached a deal that will see him receive a level of support from the German manufacturer in 2015 in order to run a two man team for, according to paddock rumours, Brookes and Camier.

Having hinted at a desire to progress his career into World Superbikes earlier this year, BSB front runner Brookes has been linked to the team for some time, but comes to the discipline having not raced on the international stage since 2008.

Former Aprilia and Suzuki WSBK rider Camier, meanwhile, has been approached after an impressive stint on the S1000RR as a stand-in for the injured Sylvain Barrier, as well as a noteworthy few races on the Aspar Honda in MotoGP.

sethgator: great news, stoked for all parties involved. I personally would have made a run at P.J. Jacobsen to partner with Leon.[\blockquote]

Didn't you get the point of this?
It is an Aussie team, so they want at least one Aussie Rider. Josh Brooks.
Corser isn't going to run with an American & a Brit.

I'm sure my reading comprehension is far in excess of yours, Sonny Jim.
By the way, when you start a sentence (hmm, with yeah) you generally use a capital letter.

Great.
Perhaps Bayliss will renew the rivalry by heading up a Ducati team?
