WSBK » Double points, extra races for final rounds?

WSBK could get around the loss of an event by incorporating additional races on an existing weekend or introducing double points.

they should do what i wish they would have done in F1,

arrive at the event on friday and have a 45min free practice session, then have a 15-20 lap sprint race award half points as normal. have a few hours break (for other classes to practice qual race etc) then have the normal practice session 2 and go on as normal on sat and sun

Surely they can't introduce extra points without agreement from the teams? I'm sure the Qatar oil men with terrorist links are working on a way of falsely inflating their (non)-event's status as we speak. Please pay close attention to the bank accounts of major Dorna figures over coming weeks, I wonder what will happen?

Double points is a bull**** system that never should have been used in F1 either. Free bonus points, yippee. Or make that 100 points for one weekend work. So somebody might have been working hard all races for a 44 point lead. But crashes in FP1, breaks something and is ****ed. If there were two weeks inbetween he at least could get some fix on the bone for example.
But I do not really care what WSBK does anyway. The series is a shade of its former self. Make it a complete joke with double points.

To be fair about this, just take the 2 worse race results off every rider and I think it will even out pretty fairly.
Double points is not the way to go. Unfair for the reasons Sasha mentioned.

Bsb manages to run triple headers with no problems, the last three rounds should be run with three races to make the championship fair.
I am sure Mr Sykes would love the championship to be cut short but riders should not gain or loss an advantage because of situation, and yes i am a British fan.
