2013 Magny-Cours World Superbike Friday Roundup: One Hundred Points Left

Rain at Magny-Cours could play a part in determining the championship, but it will most likely push the decider to the last round. Sylvain Guintoli on provisional pole, after a title-scuppering brace of fifth places at Laguna Seca, needs to beat both Tom Sykes and his own teammate Eugene Laverty if he’s to lift the trophy at the end of the year, and it’s not easy to see from today’s form if that is on the cards, but his fast time came after only six laps on slicks and it’s not known how his shoulder injury will affect the race. If nothing else, Laverty and Guintoli could clinch the manufacturer’s title for Aprilia this weekend.

2013 Laguna Seca World Superbike Friday Roundup: Local Advantage Didn't Last Long

World Superbike’s return to the iconic American track has a rather unusual schedule. A weekend without Superstock racing isn’t that unusual, but one without World Supersport, especially when the title is one point from being settled, is. Supported by the national AMA Superbike series, races are forced to run at unusual times, with three sessions today, including an hour-long extended timed qualifying session that allowed riders who have never seen the track before to get more familiar with its unique character. The first race is scheduled for the Saturday, instead of its usual Sunday slot, with the second race at the exact same time the following day.
