Sorry guys, I love WSBK, I like the racing more than MotoGP, but you look like a bunch of amateurs sometimes.
How difficult would it be to move the round to Kyalami or some European venue? Or do a second round at Assen or another circuit, still better than no racing at all.
I know this season is transitional from SBK to EVO rules but I really hope that next year we'll have a levelled playing field with many rounds firmly established from the beginning of the season.

Not what I wanted to hear. Last year of the real superbikes and I was hoping to see 4 more race weekends. I just prey to God they dont **** it up with something ridicilous as "double points" for the last race.

Remember the good ol' days of WSB, when it was owned by Infront?
It was only a few years ago.
Good organisation.
Packed grids.
Numerous full works teams.
Genuine stars and strength in depth.
Big crowds.
Enthusiastic circuit owners.
Brands Hatch.
Growing series.

Then suddenly it all seemed to go wrong. Why on earth was that?
Oh yes, Dorna. Nuff said.

Quote from my comment on the news on 31/07 that the SA round was cancelled.

""" When Dorna took over WSBK in Oct 2012. It was muted by many people that it would be the death knell for WSBK. Is the bell now slowly beginning to toll?
Get rid of the Moscow round - Easy excuse - Ukraine troubles - DO NOT REPLACE.
Get rid of SA round - At a Venue - Known from the start, that it would never come up to standard required. - IT WILL NOT BE REPLACED.

Series reduced this year. And Next Year ????????? ""

Well - PROVED CORRECT on whether there would be a replacement round !!!!

Time will tell on a reduced series next year ????
