    Default 2017 WorldSBK Updates and Discussion Thread

    And the racing season is a go...

    First weekend of motorcycle racing coming up with the Phillip Island round of WSBK. Friday practice done and dusted, with Chaz Davies on the Ducati. The top 5 positions cornered by Ducati and Kawasaki. 6th is the Yamaha of Alex Lowes, 7th the Aprilia of Savadori and 8th the Honda of Hayden.

    Hopefully this season we will see the other manufacturers pull up their socks and start competing for race wins. Only red and green on the top step of the podium has made the last couple of seasons a bit dull!

    Cheers to more racing

    And Race 1 at PI is done and dusted. I just hope that this result isn't going to be reflective of the season!

    Rea wins by 0.042 seconds from Davies. Who tried everything he could to win, but didn't manage. Sykes in 3rd just about holding Alex Lowes at bay. Camier had a fantastic race on the MV, but then this is PI. Honda struggling with an 11th and 15th finishes. Aprilia had a strong finish with returning rider Eugene Laverty. Good race.


    Race 2 tomorrow morning for those interested in catching it live!

    No. Unfortunately not shown live on TV.

    But a good couple of races they were. Even WSS was good, though i only watched highlights of it.

    Rea wins the first race at Thailand. Davies second and Sykes third. Two Yamahas in the top 5. A good race to watch, except the winner cleared off at the front, not allowing anyone to show a wheel.

    Marco Melandri will be on pole tomorrow with the two Yamahas on the front row. Sykes, Davies and Rea will be starting from the 10th. I hope tomorrow we will see someone challenging Rea. Else it's going to be a real long season!

    Four out of four for J.Rea looks like a clean sweep but he has managed the races really well without dominating from start to finish .I expected Tom Sykes to win last year since he was with the team longer but Rea clearly out rode his teammate .I was rooting for Sykes in 2015 but he was never consistent and then Rea comes along and dominates him .Motogp seems to be going the same way with Vinales coming into Yamaha and dominating practice ,winning races are a different thing though i hope Rossi has one last title before he retires .

    Now i am worried that WSBK might get too boring with Rea winning all the races. We really need more manufacturers and riders at the front, not just the green and red bikes!
