Yes, and very rare to see a teammate ahead of Johnny Rea, perhaps finally we'll see a teammate give Rea a run for his money which can only be good for both riders.

I know the tests mean nothing (just remember Shakey) but to see both Leons on top... and Haslam half a second ahead of Rea... wow.. just wow.

I know its new tarmac but Checa's also sorting out a new bike! What is it with that Moto Gp Ducati, surely they would be better fitting carbon brakes to the Panagal and letting this thing have a go at the motogp. Phillip Island Moto gp times against WSB

dont be surprised to see Carlos win it. Expecting Pirelli to favor Ducati this year, not expecting Camier to podium, dont believe the Suzuki will produce the setup, will probably end up like Rea last year at the end of the race, getting out gunned by the Kawasaki's and Aprilias.

There are some scary breaking areas at PI, but the breaking isnt as significant as it is at other tracks, and there are no real stop and go corners so the power isnt a real issue, thats why the Superbikes can keep up with the GP bikes. The only thing holding them back are the tires, pretty sure the SBK's can up their pace with some more long lasting tires, despite the brake disadvantage.
