Looks like something is very funny.

I hope Checa will speed up at Miller (his most successful track) and finish at the front where he should be. It was a weekend to forget, but he is still the same rider who won 3 of the first 4 races.

Strange how we have 2 posters laughing at a rider getting injured. Probably Ducati haters. Hopefully next season when the Panigale replaces the 1198, Ducati won't be penalized with added weight etc.

to penalise checa and it was checa for winning last years title by adding the six kilo before even one race was run will no doubt please the anti ducati brigade. however i feel it effectly put checa out of contention from the start. this weekend alone shows that. i hope he doesnt get seriously injured trying too hard on the slowest bike on the grid.

Ducati always had top riders, and put most effort into WSBK, that is why they won so many titles.
The 1198 is obviously slower then the rest with that much weight penalty on it INCLUDING these restrictors. When Ducati and Checa struggle in a track with short straits, then it is too slow. Why don't they put some weight on the Kawa or the BMW?? They are so fast they could go MotoGP and beat the CRT....
