The 22-year-old Englishman has signed a surprise three-year deal with Yakhnich Motorsport, with the aim of winning the World Supersport title and then moving on to the premier World Superbike class.

Lowes, third in the 2012 WSS championship, will ride alongside Russian Vladimir Leonov next season. The team will receive official support from Yamaha Motor Europe but carry out its own technical development.

Guintoli was reportedly in line to replace Max, but there have been rumors that Aprilia might dismantle the team.

GP1 is saying that Ayrton "Badger" Badovini will be on the team with Checa, run by Fat Frankie Batta.

I think McCormick was the only one that survived the season, but the team didn't race the last round at all due to finances. Too bad, as the conditions would have suited him--especially after his results in the previous round. IIRC, he won his Canadian championship on a BMW.

They missed Moscow as well, Not sure was it because they had sacked both riders beforehand or if they just couldn't afford to race there?
You would want a plan B if you were going to race with them.
McCormick looked good on their bike, fast enough, I wonder will they use the old 1198 or the Panigale 1199?
