    MJ thinks, well, shit, I'll get more tv time running around in 10th in WSBK than I would winning in the AMA.

    I remember when WSBK guys used to do wildcard rides in OUR series!! HA! dont' see that happening anytime soon!:lol3

    hope the boys do good, hopefully it leads to some ride offers.

    I wonder these guys will stack up compared to the regulars even though so many have need sidelined with injuries?

    Great to know Blake and Roger are running, should be fun to watch.:clap

    AMA bikes are not the equal of WSBK bikes. I wouldn't expect too much, but who knows.

    I think they'll be a force. They've been lapping that place for a decade. Roger goes really well there. I'd like to see Danny do well also. He sure is inconsistent, though.

    A lot of WSBK riders are out of the mix do to injuries. I hope the Jordan guys have a great weekend!

    I bet Toni puts the hammer down this weekend. He know the track, He was impressive in his first WSBK race.

    I wonder if having 24 hours between race one and two will help or confuse the teams?

    Elias. He took over Fabrizio's private Aprilia ride and finished 6th and 5th in his debut at Istanbul. All on very short notice.
