WSBK rules drifting down closer to production specs? No problem. We'll just build something a little 'special'.

OK, so technically this isn't WSBK, but it is Superbike in a different part of the world...

There had been rumors at the Brands round and now...

Errr, so he will be the #1 rider, and Josh Brooks will be #2??
How does that work? (And how much did Hopper pay for the ride?)

RRW dismisses a rumor

I wasn't aware of Hayes being at Motegi, nor the subsequent rumor about a new Yamaha WSBK program. And anyway, Hayes says the rumor is bunk. So I should believe him when he suggests he flew all the way to Japan to hang with his buddy, right?

Hopkins was a big draw for BSB and the championship was epic; I can see why he'd want to come back, and why the series wants him back.

Brookes has been making disgruntled noises all year about, what he precieved as, the performance gap from the Suzuki to everything else that was beating him. Going so far as to hint in a post race TV interview he thought they(everyone else?!?!) were cheating. I think he'll struggle just as much on the Yamaha. Especially if it really does require the special riding style Ellison says it does. Then again, Tommy Bridewell seems to be getting along fine with it :)

Risky. Hope it works out. He's a damn good rider, and nice bloke as well.
