BSB » Knockhill - Qualifying times.


Interesting point that about tyres. There was much talk about the one make Pirelli rule making for a leveller playing field. But the damn things are inconsistent - You only need look at Haga in WSB last week (and listen to his tactful be claer comments). The spec might be slightly different between the two series but bet your ass the quality control won't be .... or if it is it won't be in BSB's favour.

BSB » Knockhill - Qualifying times.


Half and half on both of those. I don't think Leon's really shown what he's capable of this year and that's caused a lot of negative comments to the effect he's not capable of it at all... Which to my mind just doesn't fit the lad's history. I'd be pleased to see him prove the doubters wrong. But to draw Watanabe into the comparison's not fair either. Like Macbeth says, its his first year on UK tracks. And our kart & goat tracks would come as a surprise to most overseas riders. Don't forget that 'tho Kiyo did do better in his first year than Watanabe has so far he only truly shone having had a year's experience. Suzuki wouldn't have sent Watanabe if he was a duffer.

BSB » Knockhill - Free practice times (3).


I'm pleased to see Grinner there, he was good in BSB last year and looks even more promising now. Brands wass superb. For all that I suspect Shakey's holding back a tad. He says he wants to get back onto the top step - and I'm sure that's true. But he's a canny bloke who's been around long enough to bide his time. He won't push too hard in practice. In the race it depends what he thinks is do-able. Point being whilst he might still target comfortable points in the race, likelihood is he's holding something in reserve and if he does decide to go for it he'll have the capacity. Mind you, I suppose he doesn't have the monopoly on that :-)

WSBK » Fourth pole of the season for Bayliss.


One the one hand I sort of sympathise with Clive Mc On the other the RC30 didn't have a 200cc advantage. I think the dispute's valid where its about one configuration being favoured and the rest disadvantaged by the rules. In BSB we're almost back to the ZX7 v 25% bigger twins scenario. The engine sizes were eventually evened up because it was nigh on a one horse race and a lot of folk thought BSB was getting to be not worth bothering with. So it should be no real surprise people are describing BSB as the Ducati cup now - Its history repeating itself. Its not as if the 999s were hopelessly outclassed in 2006 & 2007 is it?
