There are 26 entries on the 2015 grid

Dorna has released a provisional entry list for the 2015 Superbike World Championship featuring a 26 rider grid. 

Six rookies join the class this season, including former Moto2 front runners Nico Terol and Jordi Torres.



As was already revealed, World Champion Sylvain Guintoli will run the number one plate on his PATA Honda.

The second ride at Pedercini Kawasaki is the only rider ‘to be announced’ on the provisional grid, but there is some uncertainty over whether the grid will be 26 strong at Phillip Island or indeed moving forwards. Troy Corser’s JR Racing BMW team has said they will skip the first round but intend to be ready for Round 2 in Thailand.

The series gets underway in Australia at the end of next month.
