    I'm a bit confused, I could have sworn I heard it was going to be a V4.

    There are two test days this week at Aragon for several WSBK teams including KRT Kawasaki, Aurba.it Ducati, Barni Ducati, Pata Yamaha and GRT Yamaha. We should see Lowes, Redding, Razgatioglu, Caricasulo and Gerloff spending time on their 2020 rides.

    You are kidding? The Sachsenring has bucketloads of character. Incredibly technical and very difficult to master. And a fantastic spectator venue. It would suit SBK, SSP, and 300s perfecto.

    Oscherleben is a dead set yawn in comparison. I dropped in a few years back to check out a IDM round, left the dump on Saturday night. Shocker.

    I know a couple of riders who race in World Endurance, and the 8 hr there is not a popular round...

    I screwed up and typed the wrong name. I was thinking of the Lausitzring not Saschenring. Saschenring is great, as you said. :thumb

    I'm definitely tuning in this season. I really want to see Redding do well on the V4 and I'm actually quite curious about the new Honda.

    I dunno, that looks like it'll be a bit of fun. Does it at least produce lots of passing?

    Actually, you’re dead right! The Lousyring is worse!
