Comments

The lack of comments is a sad reflection on this championship, isn't it. I hope next year is a bit more interesting.

I've decided not to renew my WSBK video pass based entirely on how boringly predictable this season was.  Too much of the time you can summarize the weekend as, "Rea wins, Davies comes in 2nd (or crashes trying to keep up), Sykes comes in 3rd (or inherits 2nd), Melandri starts poorly then comes from behind to challenge Sykes near the end (and also looks scarily unstable on the straights)."

I’m a Kawasaki rider, Sykes fan and respect the talent of Rea but couldn’t even watch the season past half way.  The manor in which Rea crushed the competition left no excitement for me to watch.  Reminiscent of AMA racing when Matt Maladin was untouchable, before Ben Spies brought him the fight.  I didn’t renew my subscription for next year, I’d rather watch Moto3 along side MotoGP for my limited time for racing entertainment.

Hello all, I have been an avid racing fan of WSBK and MotoGP for 40 years.

When i saw Dave Emmit was pushing the WSBK rues commitee to stop watering down WSBK ,MotoGP ect i immeadiately  bought the 40$ membership. Look at Pre 2012 when the manufactures just made the best Superbike they could , we had 7? manufactures on the grid. Even small factories like Bimota and EBR competed and Aprilia was the best bike on the grid next best was BMW S1000RR. Kawasaki had the fastest riders  and we has good close racing . IMHO the new ARAGON circut(long strait version) was the start of  this mess.Where the  European brands  not only posted higher trap speeds and horsepowerit showed the European brands where MORE DURABLE. Japanese brands where blowing up asthere cases where TOO light.Even at other fat tracks the Japanese brands had catostrophic engine losses.(I think Suzuki factory was out of engine allotment 3/4 of the season .

Japanese DO NOT like being shown up as producing inferior products so they pressured the FIM to slow the bikes down and save face .(BTW I have a Superbike collection. 12 bikes including japanes 1000cc machines (also Kawasaki H2)
