The full listings for the forthcoming World Superbike series have been announced, along with all the teams and riders for each race throughout the series - although some places are as yet to be announced, the grid is full for the major championship race.

Present World Champion Troy Bayliss has elected to stay with his number 21 plate, as opposed to the traditional number 1 plate. Troy left the last test session early (held at Phillip Island, Australia) after setting a blistering pace - setting a new unofficial record lap time, and beating his previous Superpole record by 1.5 seconds.

Dean Ellison who is in his first season in the series (after competing in the British Superbike series) aboard a 999RS Ducati with Team Pedercini, will have his work cut out when competing at the European and world circuits, but will have a good chance of getting some top positions when competing at the three circuits earmarked in the UK - namely Donington Park, Silverstone and Brands Hatch.

Craig Jones, who had his first rookie season in the Superbike class aboard the Foggy Petronas bike during 2006, has now stepped down to the Supersport class aboard a Honda - a bike he is more than familiar with as he competed in the 600cc Supersports class for Ekerold in the British series during 2005 - although it is stated that he is riding for Ekerold Honda Racing this has a yet to be confirmed by Ekerold.

Craig wowed the crowds aboard the 600cc Supersports machine throughout 2005 in the British series, and should be in with a good chance of at least attending the steps of the podium throughout this year.

With the thrilling end to the season last year, this year is looking like it could be one of the best years for the World Superbike series. Even though Troy Bayliss dominated the test sessions, there is nothing to state that Noriyuki Haga and former champions James Toseland and Troy Corser should not be at the front challenging - along with Max Biaggi, Yukio Kagayama to name just a few.

Alfa Romeo will sponsor the WSBK, along with sponsoring of the Ducati Corse Team. The first race in the series is just a few weeks away, starting on 24th February at Qatar Doha/Losail, with the third race of the series returning to Donington Park on 1st April 2007.
