STP Motorsport's Chris Burns is to wildcard at the final World Superbike race in Portugal on November 5 but he doesn't know yet if he will be taking  his British Superbike-spec MV Agusta.

Burns was due to ride at the Donington Park round but an admininstration error meant he had to miss out. However, the team's entry has been approved and they might well field a bike that is not theirs.

“To get into the World Superbike paddock is a fantastic opportunity for me and the team,” said Burns. “Furthermore, the offers that have come in for us to ride full-blown superbikes simply adds to the anticipation. As Portimao is a brand new circuit we will no be at such a disadvantage as everybody will be starting from scratch. Looking at the circuit online it looks like the sort of track that will suit my riding style.”


“Due to an administration problem we missed out on a wildcard at Donington Park and, given the conditions back in September, I am certain that Chris would have added to the success of the BSB riders at that round,” added Jon Strike, STP Motorsport Team Principal.

“So, never one to shy away from a challenge we put in our entry for Portugal and have been successful. At this point in time the intention is to take the MV Agusta F4 1000 that we have been running this season in British Superbikes, which we will convert to world Superbike specifications.

"However, we are in discussions with a number of team owners/managers in regard to using a different bike. Having a choice like this is a nice position to be in and it is nice that our efforts this season are recognised by other teams.”
