This entry list just made questions. Why only one Ten Kate Honda? Where is Florian Marino? Where is Jules Cluzel? Why only one WTR-Ten10 bike and what is this allience between Bike Service and WTR? Why not Tamburini at the Bike Service team (although I'm happy that he has a place)?

With Jed Metcher finding a place I'm happy, although I doubt what Rivamoto is capable of. Interesting that 4 of the top 5 of 2011 ST600 are in WSS.

All Buckmaster does is provide and prepares the bikes and takes them to the track. You pays your money and bring your team and ride, then pay for the damage.
Its common practise in the lower ranks of racing, KRP for instance.
People moan about CRT geting in the way half of these will be 1 lap down after 5.

There might be 32 bikes on the grid but there is nothing to get excited about , imo only 3 or 4 of them are in with a shout of winning the majority of the grid east Europeans with far to much cash and not enough talent .

@Ben1, exactly the same questions are going on in my mind.

@bladeboy I agree with you partially. And the thing to get excited of in WSS is not riders only but also the real heavy mod bikes which u can c on the roads, and 600cc is more common and economical compared to 1000cc bikes and thats what makes the race really exciting. The best bit about it is that the top 3 best Supersports bikes, CBR600RR, ZX-10R, R6 r all present in good nos. which is a pleasure to watch. The sound of the bikes r also thrilling.

@Gordon Davies was 3rd in Magny Course in 2010, Quarmby 10th in 2011. Yet Quarmby's times in both quali and race were quicker than Chaz did the year before. Triumph is not progressing at the same rate as the others.
