I guess this means this team will be the new factory Kawasaki outfit. Strange because Lorenzini had the factory status for only one year, and won the title that time.
Sofuoglu and Foret are the best possible choice, altough I'm surprised Sofuoglu don't try another category. He don't have too much to prove in Supersport. He is clear favourite for the title, Cluzel and the others won't have an easy time.
A little bit sorry for Linfoot, he did great in the last few races. He has future in SSP, hope he will find a decent bike.

"what a joke" officially became a cliche 6 hours ago, time to find something new.

What's not a joke is Kenan's gtfo my race track racing style, as long as he can keep it cleaner than a hospital next year he should be good for another title, not expecting PTR to lay around though, pretty sure they still have the best bike on the grid.

This is good news. Also good news that Gabor Talmasci has re-signed. Hopefully we will also get Lowes, Cluzuel, parkes and many other good riders.

I am glad that Kenan has opted to defend his title - the others will need to raise their game to beat him and therefore we should see some great racing again.

re: "So we will be starting 2013 with the data from 2012 and one year of experience on the Ninja ZX-6R, which is an ideal situation."

okay, but what of the bike...? looks like someone (k-heavy) had plans to exit WSS racing, but now has to scramble. lol GO KENAN...!!! :)

Should have been banned for a few races this season, the guys got no respect and is dangerous....he could of broken Linfoots leg at the end, and that move on Foret down the straight where he tried to headbutt him was shocking, I hope he gets a taste of his own medicine next season.
