@ PatrickD

I think (but may be wrong) that V5Strkr was referring to times between the WSBK guys and MotoGP guys (Yamaha) currently testing at Aragon. They will SURELY be running the same layout for that.

I don't see the point in them running separate layouts at all, ever. And the WSBK layout at Aragon is way better in my honest opinion. That massive straight to hairpin creates a lot of excitement.

I actually think in torrid conditions the WSBK guys (Sykes especially) could be quicker than Rossi.

@Nick636 Sure, would love to know lap times testing here for comparison. Those Motogp might cost 4 times more than a Kwak WSBK rode by Sykes. In the dry I believe Motogp is 2 to 3 seconds quicker in PI, or Assen

"Never understood why they race, let alone test in the northern hemisphere... in November !! (?) Posted By Stoo"

I cannot agree more, its is SUMMER in the southern hemisphere, and cheaper to run practice sessions... What is Wrong with testing at Phillip Island, Kayalami, or somewhere in South America. Seems that WSKB is too much of a European family affair as I have said before.
