What's Bayliss up to these days?

Rumours of Bayliss making a MotoGP comeback might be rife, but chances are thin

Troy Bayliss might not be in the limelight these days, but the ex-World Superbike champ has been busy down under testing Aussie V8s for the Jack Daniel's Racing Holden team.

Bayliss has made it quite clear that he wants to race V8s as the next stage of his racing career. He allegedly turned down a multi-million dollar contract from Ducati when he decided to quit WSB.

Bayliss said: "It was a great experience, I came along yesterday and went and had a look at the Kelly Racing set-up and it's a great facility. It's on par with the best that I've seen, that's for sure.

"They've done a great job. The guys asked me along to come and do a few laps and it's nice because it's been a long time since I've been at Winton. It was 1997 on a Superbike.

"Everybody knows what I really want to do. I'm chasing that next step in my career. I'd loved to be involved in the V8s, whether it's in the main game or as a Development driver."

Chances are Bayliss is going to enter one of the big endurance races this year, Bathurst being the most likely.
