It's going to be too late....Kawasaki moves to GP next year and therefore leaves only Ducati, Honda's RC and Aprilia..a lot of fun that will be...

Wait till all the rules change then we will see how the Italians do...Let's see four races this year and four wins for Ducati, but wait it gets even better all four wins by the same Ducati rider Troy Bayliss. My prediction for tomorrow.......Ducati wins.

Yeah, I thought Haga was riding the Priller this year. Hey, what happened to Troy Corser? Did he move into GP racing or something?

Troy Corser (former WSBK Aprillia rider) and James Haydon (former BSB Virgin Mobile Racing R7) will ride Foggy's new Petronas/Foggy World superbike.

They'll be ready for Laguna Seca.

REALLY!?! I didn't know that...how did I not know that? I had heard of Foggy's new superbike team (dad's a big Carl Fogarty fan) but I didn't know that they were going to be racing this season, and with Corser on board. That's sweet!

Yeah, let's wait and see if they will be ready by the time Laguna Seca rolls around. I've read all kinds of speculation in the press that they won't be ready in time.

My question is does anyone know if Corser voluntarily left Aprillia, or did they dump him?
