Former WorldSBK Champion Sylvain Guintoli is in the frame to make a return to the series after having talks with Puccetti Kawasaki.
The Frenchman has not had the best of success with Bennetts Suzuki in the MCE British Superbike Championship, so has opened negotiations with Manuel Puccetti.
“I met with Sylvain. There are good possibilities to ride together for next season, we will know something in few weeks,” Puccetti told BSN in a message this afternoon.
Leon Haslam’s position for 2018 is still not clear and Puccetti may be hedging his bets in case the Derbyshire rider decides to remain in BSB for next year.
