It would be fantastic to see Kawi finish 2nd this year in WSBK with Sykes aboard. Next year it could really be close. the Ducati will be all new. The new RSV4 Factory is in development and may appear in '13, surely by '14. I hope the V4 config. remains. I love the sound the Aprilia makes. Really sounds like the Desmosedici.

here's a clip from one of austinracing's latest designs.

I watched both races and loved seeing the Kawi out front for however long the rear tire lasted. Sykes rode awesome and the 10R didn't disappoint in the power department. The tables may have been turned if Tamburello didn't have the safety chicane in there. The 10R will probably dominate on tracks where it can stretch its legs, like Monza.

i'm loving this... i've got checa AND sykes on my fantasy team. i'm in, or tied for, first place in all my leagues, AND i'm tied for first in the OVERALL standings currently. sykes needs to get some better tire wear, and he'll be a championship contender this season. otherwise, checa is going to walk off with it again. biaggi is too inconsistent here of late.

i love racing season! haha

News from todays official testing at imola.

Tom Sykes smashes the lap record again with a 1'46.609secs. The only one to go under the 1.47 again.
Bad news is, his team mate Joan Lascorz has had a very serious accident and been airlifted to a spinal hospital with a suspected fractured vertebrae.

Lets hope the poor guy can walk, let alone race again. He's only just recovered from a serious crash from 2010 that happened right in front of me.

He is one tough guy.
