Gerloff to stay in WSBK next year with Yamaha.
Lots of speculation on Twitter that the contract allows Gerloff the chance to move to Pata Yamaha WSBK or even a MotoGP team if he gets an offer. Yamaha wanted to make sure he wouldn't be riding for anyone else in WSBK which is good for Gerloff as he seems to really gel with the R1 platform. I'm sure excited to see how he does at Assen this weekend.
Maybe they've run out of money?
This video is two years old but still relevant. Paul Denning talks with an Australian YouTube channel about what goes into building a Superbike. Not a lot of new ground for some hardcore fans but some great information for anyone wanting to learn more about World Superbike racing. I would like to have heard more about relocating the fuel tank or airbox mods or how much they can modify the frame but there was only so much time.
Excellent video - learned a lot - thanks for posting!
That was very cool. 240 HP and 168 kilos.
I do wish the per-corner electronics in WSBK and MotoGP would be eliminated, though
Bodywork producers of the world, Rejoice! lol
Just watched all three BSB SBK races from Brands Hatch. The 3rd was epic.
If you’re into good close and hard racing, this is where it’s at. (Sans electronics…)
SSP as well.
Some people may be interested in this…
Yeah the quality of the onboard edits of BSB SBK compared to WSBK really shows the high level of skills and risk these racers are at nowadays, freaky fast...
The gloves off, block passes and just late braking is amazing to watch, edge of seat stuff... These Superbikes racers put on quite a show
Here is race 1 of 3 at Brands Hatch , incredible !
Color me.....wow ok
Glad to see Uribe get the opportunity. He's a great kid from a great family.
Nice to get a ride, but that team has been quite a ways off the pace all season. I'm not sure what really happened but their best rider appears to have quit the team a few races ago. Their remaining rider is a regular in last place and has even been lapped, running 3+ seconds off the pace. Uribe won't be able to show much with those guys.
I have to agree with this, the Pedercini Kawasaki's are not a competitive package. I know when Leon Haslam was in BSB recently he had an offer to ride for them but choose to to not take it.
Uribe's Pedercini ride is probably paid. He's got decent results in BSB Moto3, French 600 Supersport and top 10s in CEV Moto2 so he has talent. If he has access to resources that will get him on the WSBK grid via Pedercini, good for him. Uribe is not going to get offered any of the factory bikes or a GRT Yamaha so he's taking the opportunity he has available. It may go well or may not but at least he's giving it a shot. Axel Bassani has set the bar pretty high for privateer riders so its going to take some great riding for anyone else to get noticed.
Redding out, Bautista (back) in at Ducati?
Where did you get this tidbit?
