2005 Corona Extra Superbike World Championship

Its a Bumper Crop for possible Winners in the most
Competitive SBK World Superbike Championship Ever!

It marks a dramatic turn-around from just 18 months ago when the Championship was seemingly relegated to the saving sponsorship of Pirelli and its spec tires in order to survive without the major Japanese teams. But now World Superbike is back with a vengence with the start of the 18th consecutive World Superbike season just around the corner at the Losail circuit in Qatar on February 24-26. The final line up of competing manufacturers, teams and riders indicates that the 2005 SBK Corona Extra Superbike World championship is in for its most competitive season on record. The confirmed entry of 30 riders is the envy of almost any global Motorsports series, with six manufacturers represented by proven -  and soon-to-be – stars of the SBK firmament.

Thanks to its carefully crafted technical regulations and a single make tyre strategy, SBK has never been a more accessible and evenly matched series. Up to ten riders are approaching SBK 2005 with realistic expectations of an outright championship win; if they can keep up an impeccable level of consistency. Given the circumstances of the 2005 season, there should be something approaching 15 possible race winners, at any one round of the scheduled 12 - from Qatar in February to the finale in France on September 9. The only disapoint for the immediate future is that World Superbike was not able to keep America on its schedule this year.

Noriyuki Haga tests the factory Yamaha R1 Superbike at Phillip Island in his first ride back on a Yamaha Superbike since the ill-fated 2001 season when he almost clinched the Championship. Can Nori do it this time? Can he catch ultra fast Troy Corser on the new Suzuki GSXR1000? Is Chris Vermeulen on the Honda CBR1000RR the winning ticket. Or can Xerox Ducati copy their performance from past years?

Protagonists revealed at the Team Ducati Xerox 2005 press launch included (from left to right): Richard Wergan, Head of Marketing Communications for Xerox Europe, Ducati CEO Carlo Biaggi, Ducati Corse CEO Claudio Domenicali, team pilots and reigning Wolrd Champion James Toseland with runner-up Regis Laconi, Technical Director Ernesto Marinelli, Team Director Paolo Ciabatti, Team manager Davide Tardozzi.

The Bologna based manufacturer of high performance vee-twin motorcycles to the masses is the most successful in the history of the sport, having won 13 manufacturers’ and 11 riders' championships. For the first time in several seasons Ducati riders are not quite the most numerous on the SBK grid, but quality has not been sacrificed in the new era of Ducati’s SBK participation.

The factory Ducati Corse squad, sponsored by Xerox this season, can boast the talents of both the champion and runner up in the tightly contested 2004 title battle. Englishman James Toseland (who at 23 was the youngest champion in the history of the Superbike division) is once more teamed up with Frenchman Regis Laconi on the full factory 999F05 machines.

A very welcome and full-strength Spanish element is introduced to the class once more this year, with 250GP race winner Fonsi Nieto partnering 2004 Supersport rider Lorenzo Lanzi in the Team Ducati SC – Caracchi squad, a long-standing entry which enjoys close links with the factory.

Private entries having kept faith with Ducati are Team Pedercini’s Lucio Pedercini and Alessio Velini, and Czech rider Jiri Mrkyvka, who will have the pleasure of riding on his home track this year, at Brno on 17 July.

Chris Vermeluen on the Yen Kate Honda is a top contender for the Championship win this year.

In its debut SBK season Honda’s CBR1000RR Superbike secured four race wins, one factor in the obvious popularity of Honda machinery for 2005. A plethora of top names have opted for Honda motive force, including Winston Ten Kate riders Karl Muggeridge (2004 Supersport Champion) and Chris Vermeulen (2003 Supersport Champion and winner of those four Honda SBK victories in 2004).

In 2004 Renegade Ducati Koji won six races through the season, but for 2005 a change of rider and machine will see a single man Renegade Honda KOJI team opt for CBR power. The CBR will be piloted by seven-time SBK race winner Ben Bostrom; a very welcome high profile American rider in the cosmopolitan ’05 rider line up.

Arguably the best-loved star in World Superbike, the 40 year-old Italian Pierfrancesco Chili will team up with 21-year-old German youth Max Neukirchner in a Klaffi Honda line up of contrasting experience levels. The Austrian squad, headed by former World Sidecar Champion Klaus Klaffenbock, is new to World Superbike, but has extensive track time and podium experience in World Supersport to call upon.

Yamaha World Superbike team mates Andrew Pitt (right) and Noriyuki Haga (left).

By far the most numerous of all the machines on display will be from the Yamaha stable, a full third of the permanent grid of 30 riders choosing the 2005 YZF-R1. The most closely supported squad will be the Yamaha Motor Italia pairing of serial 2004 race winner Noriyuki Haga and 2001 World Supersport Champion Andrew Pitt.

Yamaha Motor France have enticed three-time 500cc Grand Prix winner Norick Abe into one of their riding slots this season, making it a double attack from Japan in terms of the entire Yamaha effort. Sebastien Gimbert, such a sensation at the final Magny Cours races in 2004, is gearing up for a full time assault with YMF this year.

Italy’s Marco Borciani and Portuguese Miguel Praia will run for the DFX team in the DFXtreme Sterilgarda set-up, with Spaniard Jose Luis Cardoso (a Spanish Championship regular and GP competitor of years gone by) and 2004 European Superstock Championship winner Lorenzo Alfonsi team up in the DFXtreme squad.
Two single riders teams will also run Yamahas, European Superstock runner-up Gianluca Vizziello in the Team Lorenzini by Leoni camp and Belgian Michel Nickmans in the Team Zone Rouge pit garage.

Troy Corser (right) has been fastest rider in World Superbike preseason testing on the Suzuki GSXR1000. The Alstare Corona team is joined by Japanese rider Yukio Kagayama (left), probably a requirement from Suzuki of Japan to assure the team gets front line factory bikes.

Short on numbers, but big on talent, experience and possibility, is the Alstare Corona Extra squad, with 1996 SBK Champion Troy Corser (soon to be married to long term partner Sam) and new SBK team inductee Yukio Kagayama on their books.

Corser needs no introduction to the class but Kagayama has been making a name and garnering wins in the tough British Championship for the past two seasons. Both Suzuki riders have already set good testing times at Phillip Island on the 2005 GSX-R1000K5.

The PSG-1 team are no strangers to the top step of the podium, thanks to their now dissolved partnership with Pierfrancesco Chili. Having adopted Kawasaki ZX-10s for the 2005 season, they will run British star Chris Walker and experienced ZX-10 pilot Mauro Sanchini. Having scored a second place last year Walker in particular is the rider Kawasaki are pinning most hopes on.

Perennial SBK competitors, Bertocchi Kawasaki, will run Ivan Clementi and the always high profile Giovanni Bussei on their ZX-10s. After gaining knowledge of the machine in 2004, Bertocchi is a well-placed team for 2005.

Back for a third full year of track action the Foggy Petronas FP-1 three cylinder machine cuts a distinctive sight and emits a distinctive noise, both on and off track. With two podium finishes and two Superpole wins on the board last year, the Petronas team have invested Aussie pairing Garry McCoy and Steve Martin with the responsibility for their combined hopes and dreams in 2005.

Each experienced rider is eager to maintain their overall top seven statuses from 2004, with McCoy a winner in race two at Phillip Island and Martin a three-time Superpole winner. Each has swapped a private Ducati for the high-profile 900 Petronas triple, one of the most exciting pieces of technology ever to grace World Superbike, run by a team with four-time SBK champion Carl Fogarty at its head.

With several top Supersport exponents submitting to the gravitational pull of the Superbike class, the Supersport season is shaping up to forge a new generation of middleweight stars, as well as providing another real challenge for the ‘old guard.’Strong entries from all four Japanese factories and Ducati are led by some household names in Supersport, while others have opted for youth and enthusiasm.

Champions for the past three years, Ten Kate Honda, have Katsuaki Fujiwara and Sebastien Charpentier on their CBR600RRs, while former World Champion Fabien Foret and one-time European Superstock Champion Michel Fabrizio fill slots in the Team Italia Megabike Honda pit garage. Johan Stigefelt from Sweden adds his 250GP experience to his own Stiggy Motorsports Honda outfit.

The Yamaha Motor Germany team heads Yamaha’s perennially competitive presence with their R6 product; Aussies Kevin Curtain and Broc Parkes will be forming a serious double act.

The Ducati effort, undertaken on 749R twin-cylinder equipment, comprises two single rider squads - one for Jurgen van den Goorbergh in the Selmat camp and the other servicing Gianluca Nannelli, who rides for Team Caracchi.

Kawasaki riders include former SBK factory Aprilia pilot Alessandro Antonello (Team Kawasaki Bertocchi) and NCR Ducati privateer David Garcia (Team Lightspeed Kawasaki).
The final line-up of the Moto 1 Suzuki team from France is yet to be decided, but is expected to feature two strong riders. The Alstare Corona Extra Suzuki push gets behind Spaniard Javier Fores.

For 2004 the successful European Superstock Championship has been upgraded and renamed the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup. It will have a ‘little brother’ in the Superstock 600 European Championship, with both series included in each European round of the SBK series

The big Superstock class features an entry which hints at the future of the continued flowering of the SBK grid, as former champion Vittorio Iannuzzo runs one of four MV Agustas which will grace the Superstock sessions with its Italian four-cylinder pace

Our Favorite!
Jenna Gets Dumped fromTop 3 on Sports Illustrated Model Search
Jan 26th - Our favorite Calendar Angel in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search on NBC TV is 19 year old cutie Jenna from Dallas Texas. On the 4th week of the Show, Jenna was cut from the top four girls, down from the 12 contestants that began. Her extreamely sexy 120 lbs. in a fantasticaly proportioned 5'9" package is a cross between the beautiful baby girl face of tennis star Anna Kournikova with the rockin' body of a Brooke Burns. Jenna must be what Texas hosiptality is all about.

We thought the judges made a huge mistake in eliminating Jenna who they said us "too pinupy" for the SI Swimsuit Calendar, and who didn't fare as well as the other 3 finalistson the fashion model catwalk . Big Mistake! And we thought a swimsuit pinup calendar was all about cute pinup models with rockin' bodies.

Needless to say, we've got our phone call into Sports Illustrated now to book Jenna (right) for our Calendars!

The 3 remaining girls are now one flat chest Blond with no boobs whats ever, and two very simialr and less atractive Brunettes, one with really bad attitude. We really thing Sports Illustrated really screwed up with their entire top 12 pick in general (exception Jenna), and in their decision to eliminate Jenna from the top 3 finalists who are being flown to Bora Bora for the magazine shoot. They should have eliminated one of the similar looking brunettes and kept Jenna as the prerequest pinup model us guys do want to see in a swimuist pinup calendar.

Don't forget to watch the Show on NBC Wednesdays 8/7pm. And you can vote online now for your favorite model.

Just click on Jenna's picture and we will take you to heaven to visit the NBC website and vote for your favorite of the remaining girl now!

Imagine a hot biodied long legged 5'9" Anna Kournikova with great boobs and you've got Jenna. Were the SI judges blind?

Science is dumbfounded!
Racing Discovered in their DNA!
as protagonists are turned loose...

Bologna (Italy), February 3rd, 2005 - Ducati Corse announced today that it will take part in the 2005 World Superbike Championship with a new title sponsor, Xerox. The announcement was made today during the international media launch of the team in the Ducati factory in Bologna, Italy.
The deal, which will initially run for two years, will see the team renamed Ducati Xerox Team. The partnership marks Xerox's second year in World Superbike sponsorship. Xerox, who were introduced to the world of Superbike racing in 2004 with Stefano Caracchi's satellite Ducati NCR team, are now aiming for the very top through their association with the Championship's most successful protagonists.

The Ducati Corse factory team has dominated the sport in recent years, winning five of the last seven World Riders Championships. Ducati Xerox Team enters 2005 as the reigning champions in both Constructor and Rider Championships. Briton James Toseland and Frenchman Regis Laconi finished one-two last year with a total of 28 podium finishes including 10 race victories across the 11 round/22 race season.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Richard Wergan, Head of Marketing Communications for Xerox Europe said: "Ducati has a rich legacy of producing winning teams and bikes which perform to the highest standard. They also have a dynamic and unrivalled image, and so a Xerox partnership with a brand such as Ducati - both demonstrating technological innovation and high performance - is an extremely desirable one.

"World Superbikes is one of the most exciting and fastest growing motor sports in the world and sponsoring the number one team is highly appropriate for a market leader such as Xerox," he said.
"World Superbike continues to be vitally important for Ducati and we have demonstrated that with our commitment over the years, even when the championship has been going through a less healthy period" declared Ducati Corse CEO Claudio Domenicali. "Now we are very pleased to welcome the return of our traditional competitors to the championship because it again offers us the possibility of showcasing our racing products against world-class opposition on a level playing-field.

"Racing is in Ducati's DNA and World Superbike is essential for the development and evolution of our production bikes. When we race and win, we know that the spin-off from racing will eventually be felt throughout the entire Ducati production range.

"This year it gives me great pleasure to welcome the new partnership with Xerox, who become our new title sponsor. Xerox and Ducati are both leaders in their respective fields, both are internationally-renowned, highly successful and enthusiastic companies and we are sure that the new Ducati Xerox Team will be a force to contend with in the championship" he concluded.

The 2005 World Superbike Championship will be held over 12 rounds beginning in Doha, Qatar on February 26. The Championship will cross three continents before culminating at Magny Cours, France October 9. The first European race of the season will be at Valencia, Spain on April 24.

New era for Ten Kate, Honda and Winston in SBK World Championship
Jan 2nd: With the first round of the 2005 World Superbike and Supersport championships just over three weeks away, the Dutch Ten Kate team continues pre-season testing today (1 February) at Almeria, Spain with new colours on its Honda-powered machines.
The team has been joined by Winston as title partner for the 2005 season, during which it will contest both world championships with a talented four-rider team.
Fellow Australians Chris Vermeulen and Karl Muggeridge will ride the blue Winston Ten Kate Honda CBR1000RR in the 12-round World Superbike championship. Vermeulen scored four wins on the new Honda during his debut 2004 season, taking him to fourth place in the championship.

For the World Supersport championship, the Winston Ten Kate Honda team is joined by Japanese rider Katsuaki Fujiwara and Frenchman Sébastien Charpentier. The pair will compete on Honda CBR600RRs with which Karl Muggeridge secured the 2004 World Supersport title, the Ten Kate team’s third successive championship victory.
Roberto Zanni – JT International – Worldwide marketing and sales, Senior Vice-President
“JT International is preparing for its third consecutive year in world championship motorcycle racing. Following in our MotoGP tradition, we are entering the World Superbike and World Supersport championships with our global brand Winston. Through these projects with the Ten Kate team, we look forward to strengthening our partnership with Honda. With the talent and determination of our four riders - who are still on their way up, even though they have already won two world titles - we anticipate some great successes. I am certain that the motivation that has led to the creation of the Winston Ten Kate Honda project will lead our team to victory, and I take this opportunity to wish the best to our riders.”

Carlo Fiorani – Honda Europe - Motorcycle racing activities Manager
“Superbike and Supersport represent the ideal formula to enhance the driving capacities of riders and to demonstrate the quality of the project of a super sport motorcycle. For these reasons Honda Europe has been supporting for years the Ten Kate team and the results have always proven us right. We think that this year the Winston Ten Kate Honda team, which has a new important sponsor, four great riders and a high quality technical support, will surely be one of the leading teams of the two championships. Good luck to Chris, Karl, Katsuaki and Sebastian and a special thank you to JT International and all of the partners which believed in the project.

Gerrit ten Kate – Winston Ten Kate Honda team owner
“Since we contested our first world championship season in 1997, Ten Kate Racing has come a very long way. With the support of Honda Europe, we have won three consecutive World Supersport championships and our first season of World Superbike in 2004 gave us four race wins and fourth place in the series. We have been working hard over the winter months to improve even further the remarkable CBR1000RR and new CBR600RR, both of which are already as close to race-ready production motorcycles as you can buy. We are absolutely delighted to welcome Winston as title partner to the team for 2005. I am convinced that this additional support will allow us to reach even higher standards of performance and professionalism in both world championships”.

The three-day test at Almeria (1-3 February) will be followed by two days at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia (7-8 February), after which the team will prepare for the international launch of Winston Ten Kate Honda in the city of Milan on 15 February.

Team SUZUKI MotoGP optimistic
for forthcoming tests

Team SUZUKI MotoGP is in an upbeat mood for the forthcoming tests at Sepang in Malaysia and Phillip Island in Australia.
After an encouraging test at Sepang last month, Team SUZUKI MotoGP manager Paul Denning has discussed how pleased he is with the progress of the Suzuki GSV-R race bike and his hopes for the upcoming tests.
Denning said: "I was very happy with the first test, the whole team worked flawlessly together with everybody putting in a huge effort to start the season off with a giant step forward.

"The existing and new team members forged strong bonds straight away. Tom O'Kane and Stuart Shenton, who are the Chief Technicians for Kenny Roberts Jr and John Hopkins respectively, formed a proactive relationship immediately. They were able to assist each other throughout the test with chassis and mechanical set-up data.

"The Suzuki technicians in Japan have worked tirelessly over the winter months to make the GSV-R competitive and I know they are still working long hours to give us the right package. The GSV-R needs more refinement and the team will be working hard at Sepang and Phillip Island to set a baseline to be ready for the Official MotoGP Tests in March. The potential with the GSV-R is enormous and I am optimistic we will make further advances.

"Kenny and John are both fired up for the new season and are eager to get back on their GSV-Rs. Kenny enjoyed his riding at the last test and put in consistent times on race tyres that were competitive with the front runners. John was riding for the first time since his operation in November when he had pins removed from his femur and both ankles. He was not as flexible as he would like to have been, but he still put in an incredible performance considering his recent surgery and set some great times.

"I have also had important assistance and guidance from the Suzuki personnel within the team, especially Imada-san and Sahara-san - their knowledge and understanding of the ethos of racing is very thorough. They know exactly what is needed for the team from a racer's and an engineer's perspective."

Team SUZUKI MotoGP will be testing at Sepang between February 9th-12th, before moving to Phillip Island for further tests between February17th-19th. The team then goes to Europe for more test sessions before the MotoGP World Championship begins at Jerez in Spain on April 10th.
