Maybe Marco should give a rap to Tom Sykes too. Biaggi was hell bent on duffing up his lap as I saw it.
Anyway,a great qualifying session. Carlos is going to have a hard time against the 4's,but he's on top of his game. Damage limitation for the twin henceforth, this season.
Aragon is one great circuit.
A lengthier version for SBK and a shorter one for GP.Confusing,NOT. Idiotic GPRC fuel limitations.
Enjoy tomorrow y'all.

WSB has turned into a great retirement home for ex GP stars,when you cant keep up eith the best go and beat the rest! Just goes to show the huge difference between the two.

About time they gave mad max a grid penalty for constantly getting in other peoples way, no excuse for what happened p**sing around on the racing line. Stick him on the back of the grid should make him think for once

Maybe WSBK is a retirement home for GP riders, but at least its a race and not just follow the leader with a trip in the whaaaaambulance in the end for "bad passes".

@Rumble1 - both series have close races and spread out races, and anyone who has raced or even done tracks days can apreciate how close to the edge the GP riders are from start to end where in WSB they are fast but obviously a step away from GP level. I myself like all racing,if your judging races on how close and how many passes there are you should be watching spanish 125 races or something similar.

Sorry but one pole and one win does not make Marco a renewed contender. He's still clearly well behind Biaggi and Checa in talent as evidenced by his performance thus far. So don't get all leg humpy on Rossi's mate just because he had a good run and suddenly say the guy is as skilled as Checa or Biaggi.
