WSBK YAWN zzzzzzzz

Another intensely boring race, wsbk is the nascar of motorcycles, with one rider crew chief package stinking up the show. The more rules they change the more boring the show gets. rpm limits, fixed gear ratios, pitiful.

I tend to agree with you. Next year it’s spec ECU too. I’m much more inclined to go ride the panigale or drive my new Shelby Rustang than watching WSB or Motogp on Sunday mornings. I’ve lost interest since PJ and Jake are back markers and no Americans in motogp. Just not into it much.

Can someone explain to me why WSB changed the RPM limit on the Panigales when its the Kawasaki's that are Dominating like crazy. Also Why limit the Twins rpm when it is already much lower due the nature of a twin? I just dont get it. Ducati is busting their ass trying to make the bike run and keep up but DAYUM this is crazy.

They limited the rpm on the Kawasaki's this year and still the Johnnie Rea show. Beyond boring.....Maybe drop another 1000 rpm to make it interesting

It wasn’t the JR show in Australia or Donnington so he hasn’t dominated every race or race weekend when Melandri and VDM pulled doubles. He just hasn’t had any issues and scored well every round. Now I do agree it was an uneventful race but impressive that he beat Foggy’s wins to take all time lead.
Thanks from crossdx

Ive never followed WSBK that much. I follow MotoGP and used to follow AMA superbike. I know the names and have watched some races over the years. Can someone explain why they race 2 races? And how they point system works with the 2 races? If say Rea places 1st in one race and 3rd in the second race. Does he then get point for 1st place and 3rd place and they get added up for that day?

Same as MotoGP points per race but you have two races per weekend instead of one. So yes, they get added together for weekend total and to overall total

Thanks for the info. Do you think Rea will make the jump to Motogp if either a factory team or satellite team offers him a seat? Iannone just signed with Aprilia. I read that in a post someone put up today.

I don’t know. Rea has a pretty good thing going and very successful with KRT and he’s not a young guy in the sport so my guess is he’ll stay in WSBK but who knows.

Wsbk is good and Rea is so consistant that hes hard to beat. Rarely makes mistakes.

The last moto america races were fantastic. Im going to the races in pittsburgh this year.
