    The official test is on the Monday and Tuesday before race weekend.

    The 'Girl' flies in on the Friday before from Bavaria, for three weeks...oh well, there goes the first week...and a bit....:lol3. But hey, quality time, waving flags together. For 6 days!
    Is OK, the Island is quite a magical place, plenty to see and do.


    And look at.And listen to.

    I really really really hope these guys, both of them, can take it to the Apes and Kwaks. Really.

    The Suzukis look GOOD. I hope both Laverty & Lowes do well.

    +1 and +1

    Edit: Just noticed Laverty's helmet. I thought he raced under the Irish flag ?

    Over the last couple of seasons it's been black, with a big green stripe, and Tom with the big orange stripe. :norton

    Here they are, comparing helmets, so to speak.......:lol3

    ^^ As mentioned above, the video pass is now available on the SBK site: http://www.worldsbk.com/en/subscribe

    69.90 Euro or approx $97 at today's exchange rate for 'mericans. :D Had my fingers crossed that Dorna would offer a discount for existing MotoGP subscribers (proven adopters) but that worked out like most things I wish for. :rofl

    One nice feature is an archive of WSBK races back to 1993. Thats a huge collection of really awesome road racing. For noobs, I'll recommend the Edwards/Bayliss battle at Imola in 2002/ Race 2. Both races at Hockenheim in 2000 and just about any WSBK race at Monza or Assen or Brands Hatch. Don't stop there, the list of fantastic WSBK races is too long to list.


    Edit: Just read from someone who bought the package that the archive consists of race reviews (or highlights) for now. Hopefully they will ad the full races soon.

    Too much for me. I'm paid up for 2014 MotoGP, can't do nearly the same amount again for WSBK.

    (I'll probably cave and pay up when Phillip Island comes around. :lol3 )

    Soon as someone here can assure me that the download speed of Canadian cable companies (Cogeco in particular) will keep up and won't cause any viewing issues, I'm in. We pay $50 for a single WWE bs event. Paying a C note or so for a complete WSBK season sounds like an absolute bargain to me.
