I love Kawasaki's winter livery, now with a wintery helmet which reads, not surprisingly, 'winter' in Japanese/Chinese.

There will be two BMW satellite teams in WSBK next year each fielding a single rider. Eugene Laverty and Jonas Folger will be the riders.

Quote:
Eugene Laverty will compete for RC Squadra Corse while Folger will run with Bonovo Action, the same team he made wildcard appearances with in 2020.

Laverty’s role will also include being the BMW test driver after he was involved in the development of the new BMW M 1000 RR which BMW will be fielding in 2021. Both satellite teams will run the new machine as the number of BMWs on the grid doubles from two to four.

The Kawasaki factory team (KRT) and some of the privateer Kawasaki teams had a private test at Aragon earlier this week. Rea said they made good progress on day 1 with the new bike. The second day had heavy fog all morning leaving the track surface wet so KRT packed it in.

Glad Davies will be back. Hope Go Eleven continues to get the support from Ducati they did last year. And hope they share all of Davies set up data from the last few months.

Provisional 2021 schedule released.

WSBK gets to be the guinea pig for MotoGP at the new track in Indonesia. I'm really glad they are going back to Barcelona. Not really expecting this schedule to happen as planned but hoping for the best and having a U.S. round added.

If PI is the second to the last race for the year, I would put good money on the final round being Qatar again, which is the route they all take to get home to Europe from Aus.

This looks like the final corner at Estoril. Just another reminder of how much I'm looking forward to WSBK in 2021.

You're not alone. Me too. It has been really nice to see many teams improving and giving a hard time to Johnny Rea.
