Crescent Suzuki poised to confirm WSB future

The British-based Crescent Suzuki Racing team are expected to confirm their switch to WSB in 2012. As reported in MCN this week, the current BSB squad have been in on-going discussions with WSB bosses about graduating to the world championship. The BSB runner-ups proved themselves when they competed as wild cards at this year’s Silverstone WSB round where rider John Hopkins...

Exepct Hopper to stay with the team is there is no suzuki moto gp project next year, with Bautista likely to get the LCR seat and De Puniet to stay at Pramac. Berger is signed already to Effenbert Liberty, but there are still a few big names in need of seats ! Sykes is yet to be confirmed with Kawasaki and he has proven Suzuki capability, Camier as mentioned, Hill, Laverty (Micheal) has shown WSB interest, and lest we forget the Wily old fox Haga has not confirmed anywhere !!!

I guess Kuba Smrz is on the job hunt and Liberty is going with an all French effort for 2012?

would be cool to see Peter Hickman get a test, if he is available I would take a run at Alex de Angelis.

Pramac are fielding one rider next year and most sources suggest it will be Hector Barbera so RDP, Hopper and Bautista will all be going for the LCR seat or seats maybe.

Personally I'd really like to see Camier on a bike that actually fits him and the Suzi seems like one of the bulkier rides so I recon he'd do very well on it.  I know the prilla is a good bike but it just didn't suit him and I really don't think he got equal treatment.

In an ideal world I'd like to see Hopper go back to Suzuki in GP's and then have a British super team of Camier & Hill with Crescent in WSB.

Tommy Hill will be riding the Suzuki

There was enough smirks and winks between Tommy Hill and James Haydon on Eurosport last weekend, and comments from Carter, to hint that Tommy Hill will be in WSB in 2012 on the Cresent Suzuki.

I wouldn't rule out.

Hopper winning the WSBK title at the first attempt of asking it would make up for missing out on the BSB title.

Good luck crescent suzuki have been great value thi syear with the hopper signing literally lit up the championship. Hope they get some decent signings. Suzuki are getting their act together in motopg. If hel trickles down and suzuki are serious about racing agin it may well be a better bet than a factory bmw.. Please for Tomi but could do with an established performer. Without a factory yam effort there's a good chance they will be right up there.. Just behind the ducatis of course..
