Grid is healthier this year than last. Are these teams taking part in all races and financially sound?

Davies and Scassa on "updated" 2009 R6's with factory support!

What a shame. Not as many Triumphs as last year and looks like no official factory support for the ones there. Anyone know what's happening in that area?

BE1 Parkingo dropped Triumph at the last minute, apparently over concerns from the unsufficient amount of support of the factory. Though today official annoucement obviously states that the separation was decided by mutual agreement, as always, it is very difficult to know what was exactly going on.
They've been Triumph "official" entry for a couple of years and reached reasonable success with a few podiums and many top 6 last year, both 2011 riders began testing with Triumphs in this off-season but in the end BE1 bought back the official Yamaha R6s from 2009 (on which Crutchlow won the world championship that year).

There is still another italian team running Triumphs this year but their entry was made official before the separation of BE1 with the brand so they were likely to be an "additional private" team rather than a replacement for the "official" outfit.

I was quietly hoping there wouls be a few Suzuki's on the WSS grid this year. Obviously Suzuki are gradually giving up on racing at the moment :/

It does almost seem so at world level. This will mean a gradual slide into motorcycle oblivion. They've got their cars and watersports divisions. Perhaps these are more important to Suzuki now.

I think what WSBK needs is a round in Japan. IMHO it would attract more japanese intrest and may even convince Suzuki to make more of an effort. Considering most of the grid is Japanese bikes it would make sense to hold a round over there. Obviously its a money issue :S
