Given how good Chaz was vs Melandri last year, I have to think if Ducati sort their bike out, Chaz could be pretty successful in WSBK. A shame Spies isn't racing in WSBK, it would be interesting to see those two side by side.

" I remember that Dunlop accidentally gave me the tyre list for a factory rider and I was baffled because it was like a book. I'd never seen so many choices and numbers, but when he saw what he'd given me he quickly snatched it away and gave me my usual list of three fronts and three rears! "

Electronics are ruining the racing... it should be a contest of rider skills with a level playing field. Guess what? It has almost always been more even for the chosen ones!

damn, I knew there was shenanigans with the tires, but something like that is down right foul. Really puts things in to perspective, and more to the point, makes you wonder how much those commentators are not saying... At least they are getting paid I suppose....

Its a terrible truth to face that in International Motorcycle Racing we fans can simply never know that the winner truly deserves the plaudits or whether a 15th place finisher is the guy doing unsung wonders with 2nd class support.

The only guy in MotoGP who won races for certain while riding not the absolute BEST on track with him is Stoner. But in general the status quo is pretty much established before they line up due to politics.

Horrible to have to acknowledge that we've all been had, isn't it?

Chas is one of many who I think would have tasted a lot more champagne if things were actually fair & sporting.

The boy is such a class act . Followed him in the big show , then he rode the wheels off a POS Aprilia sport tourer in AMA doing it all on the brakes , won the Daytona 200 foe Stamboli and Attack , WSS champion on a 4 year old hand me down , has done the biz in WSB against the odds as a no2 . If his name was Chazinelli Davezio bloody Lorenzo would be HIS no2 !!
