Only twentyone riders entered for next year. Three Hondas. Still only one MV, that seems like a lost opportunity to achieve better results. No Aussie again this year, although some in the paddock in other classes. Two permanent Americans, plus wildcards? does anyone know anything about wildcards in 2018? I am assuming SBK still goes to the USA. will have to look at the calender again.

Oh yeah they go to Laguna in June, middle of June. Then they go to south America in freaking October! Three & a half months later??? the calender shows World superbikes are going to Argentina. assuming the track gets built. that is a big if in my opinion. It seems the nearest international airport to el Villicum is in Chile, but I'm no expert.

Apical I think P.J. would have stayed with MV into superbikes if they had the money to develop. But he slowly slide back thru the field as other teams developed their WSS bikes. Just my opinion but I think MV riders ride the ever livin crap out of those bikes but they just don't have the resources to get to the front. I think the bikes are pretty damn good but in SBK that's not enough.
