"This is racing that means something."

100% right.

MotoGP.... Take note. WSBK has good competitive racing.

Dorna..... Take note. Please, PLEASE don't ferk WSBK up, and make sure any changes made benefit & maintain the competition and entertainment of WSBK, and turn it into a farcical Honda & Yamaha fixed-outcome parade like MotoGP is now.

I have a feeling, as I and many others have said, that Tom will be the man to watch this year.

Since Motocard took the helm this team has been on the up. I liked PB, but they didn't have the X-Factor this team has. I can also see Tom and Marcel becoming one of the great pairings in motorcycle racing. They get down to business and do what the gotta do.

Big Tom Sykes and Kawi fan!

IMO Phillip Island will be a big test for them in terms of how they've addressed their tire wear issues. I spent a couple days lapping there just a couple weeks ago, and the new surface (while grippy as fug) was destroying tires! Hopefully they have more sessions in the meantime to lay down some rubber.

Anyway, here's to another great season. Last year will be hard to top!
