WSBK » We have a lot of work to do, admits Sykes


re: "the only real question is: Has Dorna removed air intake restrictions for (Ducati's) 1200 ccm engines??" I think they're gone. but this was in play PRE dorna per the FIM rule book. yes, they initially started with them 2 years ago, but by the time they reached Imola (round 5?), they had likely been yanked. BYE BYE BABY...! (excerpt 2.4.8.1.3) "if the gap in the average value of 'event averages' is more than 5 points in favour of the 1000cc 4 cylinders and, and if a rider of a 1000cc 4 cylinder is leading the riders' Superbike World Championship standings at that time, then the initial air restrictor size of the 1200cc 2 cylinders will be increased by one size, to a dia 52 mm (or the equivalent area 2123.7 mm2) or as a last step, the air restrictor will be withdrawn." word is (and this is just a rumour) they were later seen the rest of the season being passed around Ducati hospitality as "stylish drink coasters".

WSBK » Provisional 2015 WSBK calendar revealed


re: "No doubt Dorna have their reasons why there are so many one-off flyways" gotta fly something. re: "I wonder if the teams were consulted beforehand?" consult...? for the love o' God why would we do that...? soliciting the people for their opinion is to suggest their contributions are actually IMPORTANT in the grand scheme. whoa whoa, FAAR too empowering. is this where we really want to go...?
