why do the wsbk lords insist on having three quali sessions ,and only two tyres, there is always some of the top guys way down the grid,with their weekend fckd ,would it not just be better ? to give them three quali tyres and let them get on with it?

Ah! I'm licking my lips in anticipation of another couple of podiums for the Alstare team. Leon's got the bit between his teeth after having already tasted the sweet smell of success (1st place ) twice in two meetins.Suzuki don't have to be bothered about altering the firing order or configuration of their in-line fours. They're doing quite alright, thank you! In addition, they sound absolutely awesome when the barrel down the straights with their engines singing all the high notes.

@ Sillius Soddus Guinntoli rode at Assen in Moto Gp.He is just saying he has never ridden s Superbike there mate.@ tardozzi first of all let me say you are doing a grand job at BMW :) . Anyway just vwant to say i agree with you there as it would stop riders using it as a free ticket into the second round at the expense of better riders who keep the qualies for the last 2 rounds like Cal Crutchlow does.Everyone should be on race tyres in the first round,And then Qualies in 2 and 3 or like you say just give them 3 qualies.

Glad to hear they're still having the race this weekend. Have to admit I didn't think that Suzuki would be that competitive in the beginning of the season but Haslam and Guintoli have proved to be very competitive. Now hopefully the other teams will respond to get more guys challenging for wins.

The year with Stiggy really paid dividends for Leon, he's made a brilliant start to the season, he looks relaxed, confident and seems to get on well with the team.
He doesn't have to win every race, just be up there week in, week out, GO LEON :)

@ Phil yeah that was one awesome race. I think that is the best two races i saw all last season in WSB. And Leon has given us some more cracking races this year.His style and everything just seem to suit the Suzuki.I know a lot of people will disagree but i think if he had been on the Suzuki last year the top three would of looked a lot differant.

I agree with you Locks Leon would have been a top 3 finisher on the Suzuki last year,but that was then and this is now,he does his utmost to get on the podium every race weekend which i believe will make him a champ. But for this to happen Leon and all at Suzuki must not stand still and allow the chasing pack to close in on them. They have to keep working as hard as they obviously are doing from now until this title is won!!
