Alstare Yamaha WorldSBK Supported Team's entry into the 2021 FIM Superbike World Championship comes seven years after they last contested the series. The team will field Frenchman Christophe Ponsson, who returns to the championship full-time after a partial campaign last season.
Led by Francis Batta, the Alstare Racing team has a long and impressive history in WorldSBK. After winning the Supersport World Championship title in 1998 with Yamaha legend Fabrizio Pirovano, the team stepped up to WorldSBK, and were soon crowned champions in 2005.
They continued to take multiple victories and challenge for titles over the next eight years, collectively scoring 28 wins, 114 podium places and 17 pole positions before pulling out in 2014.
