That time would've put him 2nd on last year's MotoGP Grid!!!!
Dani did a 1min 32,54sec lap in qualifying and he was 2nd...

This team is going strong. I hope they come out kicking in 2013.

Tom Sykes for 2013 WSBK Champ!!!

Im really rooting for Tom to win the championship and he really needs to as it will be the last year of the current superbike rules, Dorna will change it to give motoGP the edge back. that been said any future WSB champion might not have the kudos it currently attracts!

I don't really care if the rules were changed to de-spec the world Superbikes and bring them closer to production bikes. As long as the racing remains close, who would care if they were superstock spec?
I think that raid racing for one would gain, rather than lose, from reducing complexity and costs. And why not wsb too?

@ luwi kawasaki

Dead right, unfortunately. They will sit and make stupid changes to series that ACTUALLY works.

@ Stephen

Also, completely correct, but, they also lost our on half a day's testing. Both riders reckoned they could've comfortably gone 0.5sec faster.

Kawasaki seem to be taking this championship VERY seriously now, pity its taken them all these years to realise its worth the effort....its got to enhance their reputation on the street no end.
