What can we expect from the 2019 WorldSBK season? In this episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast, Steve English and Neil Morrison review WorldSBK testing and go factory by factory to discuss how they expect each one to fare.
There's plenty of talk about Ducati's new V4R, of course, but first they have to beat Jonathan Rea. Can Leon Haslam keep up with his Kawasaki teammate? Can Tom Sykes reinvent himself at BMW? Will Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark be able to keep up the progress they made in 2018? And how will the arrival of Marco Melandri and Sandro Cortese affect Yamaha's chances?
Then there's the arrival of HRC, with Honda switching to the Althea team backed by Moriwaki. Could they make a step forward with the CBR1000RR at last, or will we have to wait for a new bike next year?
Neil and Steve go through all of this and more. Enjoy the show!
