It was made because the ducati single swingarm is so much faster to swap tyres.

Kind of makes sense, i figured it was because some other team took that long in a practice swap and since it is an anomaly to pit they didnt want it to decide the race.

I'll try and drop in more often this season.

Congrats to Melandri. Taking that free ride with Ducati was the best decision to revive his career now it's paying off. Though none of these guys should ever ride for free considering how the promoters line their pockets with cash. Dorna is slowly killing Wsbk to make GP 'appear' better, good for them the mechanism of manipulation for GP is swallowed whole by mist of the ignorant gullible and naive spectator masses. Wsbk used to be great, now it's barely compelling to a race fan.

Well done to Ant West, Leandro Mercado and Jake Gagne for trying to advance their careers. They're on shit equipment, but you never know what can happen.

Check this out I just looked up the results of the world superbike round at assen. And this is what came up. I don't know if this is Nicky f'ing with us from above (i dont believe in heaven) somebody hacked in as a tribute. This is from today's results. As you can see no results for next round. WTF

If you have the app, check this out.

Entertaining second sbk race at Donington, finally this weekend J. Rea looked (a little more) human. So courteous about losing, he blamed nobody but himself, classy rider, hard not to like him.
If we don`t count the (double) winner, result of the day goes to Sofuoglu`s heir, Razgatioglu. I hope he`ll become Rea`s mate at factory Kawasaki (he`s already contracted), he surely looks to be a very promising rider.

NIce race in wss300 too.

Yeah some good racing, thing is though all the other guys are tripping themselves up and Rea is still racking up the podiums, he's already 64 points ahead of Davies who realistically is the only other rider I think can challenge him but he needs to string a few wins together and hope Rea has a few DNF's or none podium finishes. VDM, Sykes and Melandri just aren't consistent enough.

Agree, I don`t have high hopes for a different rider than Rea for 2018 crown. Like Lorenzo to Yamaha, he is the perfect fit for Kawasaki, and i really understand the organizers, they are trying to change technicalities as the season progress to create some diversity in race results (with little outcome till now though).

WSBK is akin to the Scottish Premier league - a JOKE.
