WSBK » Haslam ‘excited’ by new engine spec


Haslam has seemed to have been around forever but his 'peak' was between 2006 (2nd, BSB) and 2010 (2nd WSB). Since then he has been dropping off the pace and seeking to over-compensate by pushing beyond the limit with frequent crashes / injuries the consequence. He's a nice lad but I can't really see how any of the top teams could justify putting a ride his way now.

WSBK » Technical issues continue to stymie EBR


ducati1098: Give Buell a break since this is their first time racing in this capacity. they are a small company with limited resources and I do believe this experience will allow them to get better next year. They also need stronger riders I think but prying top riders to that team will be very difficult if not impossible. Anyways Buell is doing a good job by jumping head on in a very difficult series but they will learn how to develop their craft better as they learn more information and gathering data.
Surely if you are a small company with limited resources then you do your development phase through a national series and iron out the bugs BEFORE launching yourself at a full factory effort at World level? Learning to walk before trying to run springs to mind. Racing is all about promoting the brand. How is Buell gaining positive brand equity when they are running at the back / breaking down all the time?

WSBK » Frustrated Rea: I feel we’ve made zero progress


I've never been too sure why so many people seem to rate Rea. Taking BSB, WSB & MotoGP wild-card rides his record is 18 wins from 168 starts and never won a championship. Frankly this is not the sort of form / record to convince anyone that he has a future in MotoGP. Compared to some of the hot Moto2 riders coming up such as Tito Rabat, Rea simply isn't in the same league.
