Can we safely assume that Laverty will not be racing this weekend?

Agreed, Giugliano has suprised me already.

This is gooooooood for my fantasy road race, but still early days!

Wow Well done Davide Giugliano, welcome to Australia Mate !!!

Wow Well done Davide Giugliano, faster than the team mate who is the current world champion. Awesome.
Has Davide ever been to Phillip Island before ?

Should be a fun race meeting.

, Marco Sairu, says the Panigale's ultimate piston speed of 22 meters/second is nearly identical to the four-cylinder S1000RR.

so nearly as fast but still running 200cc extra!!!!

@Bridgestone - why is piston speed being discussed in a thread about the PI qualifying times? But since it is, presumably you know that piston speed is the ultimate limiting factor in reciprocating piston engine design. 22 m/s is not particularly high.

The Suzukis look like hell to ride. Back wheel chatter under braking and wheelspin all over the place. If you look at the sector times Brookes was 8th fastest in sector 2 (squiggly bits) and near the bottom in the other sectors. He was losing half a second down the straight compared to the Ducatis. The Suzukis in the Aussie Superbikes looked far more stable. Impressive riding by some of the newer Ducati jockeys. Looks like the Honda is a better package this year in both WSBK and Aussie Superbike specs. Good crowd for a Friday and quite a few British fans around the circuit. Should be a good fun at the pub.I hope they show McWilliams on the 1981 Katana for you British fans. He is racing it in the historic race on Sunday and if it is like the historic races a few weeks ago he will be climbing all over the thing to get it turning. Fast though!
