In a bid to attract the lost fans of WSB, organisers of the dwindling championship have announced that a Supersport 300 World Championship is being added to the series for next year.

It’s going to be a proddie-based class that will allow riders to compete on Honda CBR500R (so, not a 300), a Kawasaki Ninja 300, a Yamaha YZF-R3 and a KTM RC390 (and, that’s not a 300 either).

With two of the four models listed as useable machinery in the class not being a 300 we’re not overly keen on the name of the championship, but then we’re just being pedantic. But it’s not a 300 class.

We reckon it won’t be too long until we see a CBR300RR in the class too. And a GSX-R250/300. That’d be a couple of 300s that’d tie in with the name a bit better – donchathink?
