Here's hoping that Marco can make amends from the disappointing end to his 2012 season. He was well on course before 4 back to back DNF's starting in Nurburgring! Also hope the front runners are a pack of 8-10's hoping!!

The playing field could not be tougher , all manufacturers are more or less up to speed, the mix of top riders could not be more challenging, I believe that consistency will be key to winning 2013. Cant wait to see how the Panigale and the Honda will perform against the Kawasaki, BMW and Aprilia. I see the season ending in this order with Tom and Marco at the top followed by Eugene, Carlos, Jonathan, Sylvain, Chaz, Leon, Loris, Ayrton... lets see ...

Sykes will always be quick over a one lapper just look at his results this year, but the race is more than one lap long, once the tyres get up to temp the other bikes overhaul him. he seems to fade back, ( i know not every time) but this seems to be the case.hope he gets sorted for 2013. one for the staticians on this site, how many poles and how many wins, just curious.

yeah what you said pp916.

@ SAM'S MUM Tom Sykes won four races.
Tom took pole Nine times.
Tom set the fastest lap three times.
I got this from the WSBK official site, man three clicks away. reckons at least 18 riders in WSBK next season twenty if Effenbert Liberty have two riders.

@ SAM'S MUM.....

But in the end he lost the championship by only half a he can't be doing that much wrong!
And wasn't that because of a DNF due to the Kwaka launching itself in a race?

My sentiments exactly.
