or did the Ducati seem to lack top speed during the race , failing to close on the main straight like previous years ? 

have the competition got that much faster or have Ducati dropped the ball / been handicapped ? 

 

Just flip Green and Blue, and you have Supersport!

(Gone are the straggler outgunned KTM singles, and the uncompetitive FIVE HUNDRED TWIN Honda affront to racing). 

Surprised more folks haven't chimed in on the revolution on the horizon is WSS. Curious what might go on here in 400cc "300's" but not very much to be honest. These are heavy kart track bikes with a gearing change. There may be so few readers clicking and reading on a 300SS standings update that I am here by myself, but that's ok. 

The Aprilia RS660 has just brought rejuvenation to the Lightweight catagory. It is the EXACT same weight and power as a 600cc Supersport 4cyl from early in the previous era. Moto2 has caught the beginning of the MotoGP era lap times. The "new" "Supersport" bikes coming are...bigger displacement bikes, underwhelming at best sport-standards in stock trim, and ready to race with less extreme tune via displacement. Cheaper to run! 

Interesting. It doesn't seem too important to me the formula in the smallest class here. It just get kids racing. Moto3 can have just 2 bikes in it. Same w 300's. It has to be production bikes of course. These will do. I really like our Moto2 formula surprisingly. Cheap entry floor. Low budget ceiling. Big full close grid. The NATURE of the bike is GREAT, churning out good racing and good riders! 

WSS is the class in crosshairs for change now. And it will be good! Ok w this 300SS being the Kawi Cup for now. Keep spec in line w national series' and push to get as many local wildcard kids on grid as possible. The R6 Cup though, put it out if it's misery behind the shed via rulebook. 

P.S. Shouldn't this feeder grid be bigger? Wildcard locals plz.

We're very negative about the series and where it progresses onto.

Kinda interesting watching 400s v 300s at atop speed circuit. In some universe. 

 

I did note that Shakey Byrne and others on British Eurosport were a bit down on the series and where riders go from it, but as the previous poster notes the exact formula doesn't matter too much as long as it's a (relatively) cheap class where teams and riders can come in easily enough and wildcards from national series have a chance. Moto3 as it currently is and WSS300 has got to be better than 125cc (and 250cc) classes in the two stroke days with a clear division between the haves and have-nots.

WSS300 has obviously had a couple of tweaks to the rules fairly quickly with the Kawasaki 400 coming in and taking over a bit, although I do miss the big Honda that Mika Perez won a couple of races on in the first year and the teeny KTM (there's just one this year, with Victor Steeman riding). 

I suppose you could say that in its short history only a few riders have progressed up and out of it (Gonzalez in WSS, Galang Hendra, Andy Verdoia fluked a WSS victory in the rain last year) but with it being a new class there are some riders in it who have done higher spec classes and come down to it as a second chance - e.g. Ana and Tom Booth-Amos, both of whom are showing their experience and making the most of it. Plus with the pandemic disrupting everything maybe we haven't seen as many moves between classes as normally this year. At a national level Oli Bayliss was doing Aussie SS300 in 2018 and is riding a superbike to around the top 6 in ASBK this year so it's not proved a bad stepping stone there.

Mainly I think there's not much chat about it after the races because we all need a lie down to reflect on the barely controlled mayhem that we just witnessed...
