FGSport, organisers of the World Superbike, Supersport and Sidecar championships, have confirmed that next year's WSS series will continue to run under the same technical regulations.

The statement was apparently released to end speculation that the cylinder/capacity rules would be revised. At present, and in contrast to the WSBK series, four-cylinder machines have an advantage - resulting in the likes of Ducati's 748 not racing this year.

The full statement can be seen below:

"Following recent rumours regarding possible changes to the World Supersport Championship Technical Regulations, FGSport would like to state that the Technical Regulations will not have any significant change.

"In particular, with reference to the cylinder capacity (750cc - 2 cylinder / 600cc - 4 cylinder), FGSport underlines that this element will not be subject to any change now and in the long term."

Like the SBK series, World Supersport teams will also be forced to use one tyre brand, Pirelli, next year.
