WSBK » Technical issues dog EBR in Italy


Its not really new though is it? Just an evolution. The people on here praise this bike for being 6 seconds off the pace yet the bike has spent plenty of time on the track, yet deemed the CRT bikes as dangerous before the first race even though they were only 3-4 seconds off the pace and with only 2 tests under their belt.

WSBK » WSBK Imola: Latest Championship standings


Avintia ran the WSBK chassis at the Sepang tests, it chattered all over the place, so they did as ART at strengthened it up to get rid of the chatter. The engine is kicking out plenty of power but the chassis cannot cope with it the usual problem, so another chassis is needed. The standard ECU is a way forward, until they are all using the same software in it the factories will have the upper hand, but they always will as will Honda as the most successful manufacturer. Stories about chassis usage in Phillip Island are the other way round.

V4Poweeeer: Kawasaki say a cold day in hell is when they return to gp but it seems Dorna is doing whatever is necessary to push the factory team efforts to enter/remain in gp.
Kawasaki are already there, or at least there race director is, with an engine from Akira and a bike mix of the WSB bike and Hayate. They did test with a WSB chassis and Barbera tested the WSB bike with the team albeit on Bridgestones. Interesting stories about the WSB chassis im phillip island

From what I've heard Pons wants to step up, LCR wants to expand, Gresini would like another factory bike and Marc VDS who I assume isnt short of cash either all want to step up but with competitive machinery.
Lots of wants but money being the problem, only 24 places on the grid (they may let 26 next year) only 22 get travel fund last 2 from previous season don't. New teams into the class, if someone drops out will have to pay their own way for tyres as well, unless they buy an existing grid slot.

WSBK » WSBK Imola - Race results (2)


patahonda.com I think they did lead you astray, Rea had HRC backing at that time and was using their code, Nakamoto threatened it because he wanted freedom to develope HRC hardware and software and knew Flamini's wouldn't object as they didn't with Aprilia, Kawasaki, BMW and Ducati, it was short lived though. They have used Cosworth for years now.
