WSBK » Laverty signs off in style as future remains uncertain


If Eugene Laverty is still seeking a ride for 2014, his double victory from pole position at Jerez will no doubt help his cause...

EL is a big player in world superbikes, but, in motogp he,
as a previous poster has said would be mid pack unless
he is with a good team.
I would like him to stay in world superbikes, but, with a team
capable of wining the championship and that rules out honda.

That pass on Melandri alone should net this guy a contract! Probably been the fastest rider all year really in SBK just inconsistent with too many DNF (although some were not his fault). I think he deserves a shot at GP but no point going until the playing field has been levelled a bit, stick around and win WSB next year!

The big worry is that Dorna's inept or frankly criminally biased rules will turn WSBK into another version of MotoGP, with certain teams getting an unfair advantage, and a multi-tiered grid where most haven't a hope in hell of a podium.

Dorna COULD have taken control and cut back on the tech and the costs, introduced sensible changes that would encourage close racing and true competition - the model (BSB) is there for all to see. But no - they allow the manufacturer's a forum to decide rules by committee, and use MotoGP as the model even though that has resulted in a dismal joke.

I fear for WSBK. I am very thankful that Dorna isn't in charge of BSB - the best televised racing series by FAR and likely to be better while Dorna's meddling screws up WSBK & GP's.

@ RSMick

Either you are hiding under a rock somewhere with a keyboard, have the IQ of a sandwich, or lord knows what.

But if you think that Ezpeleta & Dorna are managing MotoGP effectively then one has to hope you never get to be (or are in) a position to run anything in Sport.

Who knows what your angle is, and why you defend the indefensible - but you do. We aren't going to agree, your arguments have no substance and you take a stance that has zero credibility.

Dorna have made Grand Prix into a JOKE. Now they have their hands on the only other televised International Circuit Racing Series.

As a motorcycle racing fan, then damn right that gives me cause for concern - there is NOTHING about what they have done to instil confidence that GP's nor WSBK will be nurtured. Exploited and corrupted more like.
