Renegade Koji Ducati has told that they have had interest from MotoGP, WSBK and AMA SBK riders to fill Leon Haslam's departure and Noriyuki Haga's possible absence from the team next season.

Team boss Mark Griffiths exclusively explained to at the NEC show that following the announcement that Haslam would be riding for GSE in BSB - and that Haga could take a position with Yamaha if Renegade decide not to employ him - he has been inundated with offers.

Most notable are those from MotoGP riders, of which 2004 Aprilia rider Jeremy McWilliams is thought to feature quite highly. Mark was also keen to point out that a one rider team is a very real possibility due to financial concerns.

"We are by no means certain we will have two riders, it could be that we have one rider if we cannot find the funding to field two," commented Griffiths. "If we don't stick with Haga next season we have a short list of riders which would replace him. Some from MotoGP, some from the existing World Superbike championship and one rider from AMA."

In the interview, which can be heard in full on the radio archive, Griffiths hinted at the possibility of a Renegade Honda team next season. The Renegade team are thought to be in talks with Ben Bostrom from the AMA Superbike series. Bostrom could potentially bring a great deal of Honda support with him.

Mark Griffiths and his ex-wife Jayne have largely funded their racing effort out of their own pockets over the past three years, and now hope that the strong Renegade image and the success they have had this year on a limited budget can attract more sponsorship for next season.

Renegade and Haga finished third in the 2004 WSBK championship with six race wins.
