* FIM Europe Supersport Cup
Compare it to last year’s entry list we have there some changes for this season. Jules Cluzel is going from MV Agusta to Honda to the CIA Landlords team. Robin Mulhauser is also coming to this team. He is coming from Moto2 World Championship.
The GO ELEVEN team has both new riders as Gino Rea and Kazuki Watanabe are going there.
Kyle Ryde is going to Puccetti team and will be Sofuoglu’s team mate. The Puccetti team will race also with a Junior team where they will have Michael Canducci as a rider.
Race Department is growing and will race with two riders. Alex Baldolini stays there of course, he will have Davide Pizzoli as his team mate.
Patrick Jacobsen is going to MV Agusta. The team will go with two riders but Alessandro Zaccone will race only at the European rounds.
Aiden Wagner and Kyle Smith go to Lorini team.
The GRT team is switching from MV Agusta to Yamaha and will race with Federico Caricasulo and Lucas Mahias.
Kallio Racing is set to do the whole season. Their riders will be Niki Tuuli and Sheridan Morais. For me personally it’s nice to see Sheridan back in the championship.
The Profile team is also growing and will race with two riders. They will be Luke Stapleford and Stefan Hill.
In the Europe Supersport Cup there are so far just 6 riders. I’ve already mentioned Zaccone, the others are Jaimie van Sikkelerus (MVR Racing), Connor London, Jacopo Cretaro (both RSV Phoenix Suzuki), Rob Hartog (Team Hartog) and Hannes Soomer (WILSport Racedays Honda).
There are lots of changes in comparison to last season so I am not sure that I mentioned all of them in this post. In case I missed something I am really sorry. I will write more about each rider in the season’s preview.
