Daytona this weekend. FP1 & 2 done. First quals today.





(Going to do this thread like the SX, one thread for the season since we only have a few people who follow motorcycle racing on powerslide.)





So, this is "America's great race" supposed "most historic and storied motorcycle race"at "Datytona--the world center of racing"; YET, we won't be getting the race live here in the States, actually . They will in the United Kingdom and abroad. FUCK. I'm pretty sure we are on the cusp of the end of this empire. Embarrassing.





Go Benito!

sorry for the noob question, but what exactly is a daytona sportsbike? supersport rules but 850cc twins?


and why is that the premier category and not the superbikes? banking too much/tyre probs?and why isn't hayes on a proper bike in a bigger championship?





thx for the info guys

Daytona Sportbike class is a modified 600cc class.





Superbikes got to be too fast for the standard course, so they created a modified course that cut out NASCAR turns 1 and 2.





Superbike is no longer the premier class because AMA sold out to the NASCAR people, basically.





I think Hayes is overlooked because of his age.

so the superbikes run a different configuration of the course as a support race?


i don't watch a lot of ama/bsb and i dont follow it on purpose so that i have something to watch in the winter, but hayes is the guy that definately looks like the class of the field. also wsbk looks a bit wrong with not a single american in it,yamaha italia should hire him and return.





i remember some moaning 4-5 years ago about nascar, but what exactly happened? you know,in like 3 sentences are the sportsbikes the main event at other races too?would seem ridicolous.


thx a lot

Exactly!





Ok, I missed qual on the livestream because I'm a complete dumbass. Funny thing was, Rog was watching the live stream while we texted eachother and I didn't know he was watching while I was staring at a live timing screen. FML





THEN... I knew we could watch the supersport races on Speed2.com, but last year I tried signing up and it didn't let me because my satellite provider was not on the list. So I didn't bother, until I decided to look a little bit more into it. Realized they added my provide and I can now log in. Of course I logged in exactly when the race was over! So it been a fucking FAIL for me today.





To make matters worse, Benny Solis had an awful qual. 12th. Then a red flag came out. Rog said it might have been him as there seems to be fluid on the track and it looked like maybe he blew an engine. Not sure, but I'm looking for an update from Benny to get the word.





You can log on to amaproracing.com, and go to the streaming link (Pigeon provided link above http://www.amaprolive.com/rr/), you can HEAR the on track PA commentators. You can also view the Press Conferences as well.





So there are several options. EXCEPT no LIVE television viewing. Embarrassing. Maybe one of you Brits can open a justintv livestream hahaha. Pigeon, if you can find a live link for us AMERICANS to watch the great AMERICAN race, that would be tops.





Ok, we just had two races today, the HD & supersport. Both were total barn burners. In the HD race the first 10 finishers were within LESS than 1 SEC! Yes, that's right. In Supersport, the top 6 were within one SEC. Awesome. Congrats to the winners. Stefano Mesa is a good kid. I've met him, hes good friends with Benny. Now the rest of the podiums was a bit weird as the first timing showed the both Sedowski brothers, then later they changed it. I hate that AMA always seems to fuck these official timing and scoring finishes up. They did in SX and now in SS. Stupid.





Superbike race about to start.

Put a bit more salt on it bro...





Ok, so races today were probably very exciting, I don't know, all I could do was stare at a timing chart. But according to the lap times and gaps, it was close racing all the way. HD XR1200 race the top ten were within a sec. The SS was awesome, I imagine, top 6 riders within a sec. Will have to watch when they post the SS torrent or on demand on Speed2. The Supebike race seemed exciting to, again, based on my imagination. Hayes had a mechanical, gifting lead to Herrin. I thought it was over, then Cardenas made a race of it. I texted my buddy who knows I dislike Cardenas, that if he beat Herin, I would stop hating on him. He failed. So fuck Cardenass. And no, I'm not a fan of Herrin either. Last thought for today, its a shame Hayes isn't picked up by some Euro team for Wsbk. He would do great. Also, KTMDucati is a cool looking bike but not up to snuff. Benny also had a shit qual.
