Interesting that a guy IN the know and IN the series says that ultimate horsepower and electronics is NOT required for great racing, and cites BSB as the example.

I've said these same things on here, and people go off on one that it'd be sacrilege to rein the bikes in a bit!

Thing is... what Andrea says is true - and not JUST for WSBK but for MotoGP too. But don't look for any sense arriving there.

It does look like Superstock 1000 will become superfluous though. Mind you - if that resulted in a larger WSBK grid with even more strong competition and teams from the 2 - who'd really mind?

All sounds good to me - less factory, more independence, less electronics. I'm still waiting though for Dorna to make a royal hash of the regs so its another MotoGP mess though.
