Panigale Racing in WSTK

For those of you living on the moon who haven't picked up on this, the same Panigale that 'loses' Superbike shootouts everywhere especially versus the BMW S1000RR, and has 'handling issues' is currently leading the World Superstock 1000. At Silverstone yesterday, they scored their second win.

The two leading Panigales got the absolute holeshot off the line at Silverstone, they were in another league for off-the-line acceleration.

They must be generating a bunch of good info. for the move to take the Panigale to World Superbikes in 2013

Very impressive! I'm happy to see the Panigale is winning in the superstock. Thumbs up for WSBK

There has been some great racing in Stk1000 this year, the Pani, BMW and Kawis have been battling it out all year. Mixed bag for the Barni Ducati team, one of their Panigales won the race and the other blew an engine on the first lap! Hopefully they're discovering all the weak points under race conditions so we don't see engine failures in WSBK next year.

The WSTK racing is simply awesome, and yes the Panigale, BMW and Kawi are are a cut above the rest, not bad for a first year, just wait until the WSBK version is rolled out at the end of this year.

By the way did you guys see the first race of the WSBK at Silverstone? If not do your self a favour. This racing is incredible compared to MotoGP.
there were all manufacturers vying for the leads, fantastic.
