Also if a bike is damaged in WSB1 then the mechanics have less time to get the bike fixed up for the second race, meaning there is an increased chance they will be rushing and potentially making mistakes or overlooking things, compromising safety.

i think this will work out ok as far as tv is concered. certianly better for me on a sunday morning. however will not be so good if attending the early start is not a problem and i would stay for superstock but wasn't it £50 odd a ticket last season thats alot to be leaving just after lunch.

im sure i can also remember troy baylis saying in an interview that he did not tend to push at some tracks until after lunch as the tracks were green until they heated up not sure if this is true or not but sounds right

With the changes coming in 2014 raceing would finish around 15.00 if timetimes goes to plan. (upto 2013 it was about 16.30 after the 2nd WSB race. I do not know how many extra races there will be after the Supersport 1000 race. Eurosport should show that race as they do show the races after the 2nd BSB race.
The problem is there will be no supersport 600 race either on Saturday or Sunday and the supersport 1000 race is going to be the last race of the day at most meetings.(upto 2013 the 600 race was on saturdays and the 1000 race was the 1st race of the day on sundays at 10.30).
Dorna should be trying to get more support races not less. The WSB meeting of 2013 at Donington had 3 extra support races( Ducati 848 Triumph Triple Challenge and Eastern Airways Sidecars). The 2014 meeting have the triumph triple challenge confirmed and may have other support races.

re: "however will not be so good if attending the early start is not a problem and i would stay for superstock but wasn't it £50 odd a ticket last season"

ok and what if it was...?

breaking news...!!! the circuit's 50 quid cost of admission isn't the problem. the problem is with YOU and your lack of discipline. you know when the race is going off. it's the same time every year. that means you had an entire year to save. if you need to escape the car park early, that's your business.

wanna be rebel...? right then, break from tradition... stop whining, start supporting.

sharmarone my lack of discipline i never said i cant afford to go nor did i say i want to leave early and if it takes you all year to save £50 you need a better job. before i had my children i used to go to nearly every bsb and british wsbk round and when i started going in 1997 you had a full race card. i have two young girls one is autistic so it makes it hard to go nowadays. but i still go to a few all i was saying was i prefer that something is racing all day. whats your problem ****head
