I thought it was the "no-soiler" thread, and frankly, with you typing in bold font, it made me soil myself.

Buried deep in post-race press release from SBK:

Even though a slight improvement between the two races – still not matching early expectations – as per the application of FIM Regulations art. 2.4.8.1.3 Ducati will see the removal of the air restrictors on their 1199 Panigale R, starting from the next round at Imola (June 28-30).

Awesome! I am looking forward to seeing him ride one more time.

Thanks for sharing the races! Some of us have this thing called work that gets in the way... way too often.

Guintoli reminds me of Hayden... consistently on the podium but not winning too many races. We'll see how it ends up in the end.

Kawasaki may plow serious money in to get this championship. It would be a great feather in their hat.

A tight series is to our benefit... exciting!

Yes, thanks again.


What's really curious is that from a US perspective (I'd be interested to know if it's that way with other countries) the bikes that are competitive in the US are nowhere in WSB and vice-versa. Same with Supersport.

You'd think the light bulb would go off with the organizing bodies to finally normalize the rules between country and world competition. This would provide so many advantages: the manufacturers with better investment/advertising leverage; better, larger, and more diverse grids; better show for the fans; "progression" of riders rising through the ranks; and really answer some talent questions. It would probably encourage more manufacturers to get involved. It's so unfortunate how many manufacturers don't compete in the US

And all this without any downside.

And while on the subject- know one AMA/DSB feature that I'd like to see applied to WSB (and all other classes)? Paying a point for pole as well as a point for leading most laps.
