Why do the WSBK organisers run an aggregate race after only 3 laps of the first part? Wouldn't it make more sense just to re-run the race minus the 3 laps and have it only on that part? (As MotoGP do)

they done it that way cos it was a spanish run c/ship,in a race in spain,to give checa a spsnish rider an edge on everyone else,geddit,and when shakey gets the same spec bike as checa he will be on podium to and beat him

Ducati Rocks you're kidding right. This is the way WSB has done stopped and restarted races for quite awhile it's not like they just made it up for this race. While I like the idea of restarting the race as new minus the missing laps concept but the aggregate makes sense to give credit for those who led the first part of the race.

@Cubikrube,

Thanks for clarifying who is running the series for the uneducated.

I'm curious, though, who you would have picked to win the race had it not been re-started? Re-starting is a fact of life and part of the game, and kudo's to Haga, I'm not trying to diminish his tremendous run to the front. But it was interesting to see Camier leading for a bit, and with Checa on a slower Ducati he did run an amazing race.

Great to see yet another race winner!!!
