Good for Eugene Laverty.

Xavi Fores is a talented rider too ... but still no news whether he will have a ride or not next year.

Xavi Fores just signed to ride for Honda in BSB. His results last year surely should have kept him on a decent WSBK bike and it doesn't make much sense that he lost his Barni Ducati ride to Rinaldi but thats racing.

Thank you for the news.

I was not impressed with Rinaldi ... I guess the sponsors dictated who Barni could sign.

BSB is perhaps a good way to bounce back into WSBK like Haslam did ?

Sounds like a pretty nasty break-up with Ten Kate and Honda. I hope Ten Kate ends up sticking it to them in the future.

I somewhat expected TenKate to sue Honda for the last minute shenanigans. however, im surprised TenKateRacing is declaring bankruptcy. id guess they have some debt they cant pay without Honda. but who knows.

the whole situation is shitty and just highlights the consequences of WSBK's dependence on manufacturers and their $$. there are other ways as we've seen in other series. but Dorna just won't pull the trigger for some reason.
