You know what's impressive? Barrier did a 2m 1.07s this morning on the BMW Superstock bike. That's probably 35bhp less, road tyres, standard wheels, brakes, frame, subframe, fork externals and far more basic electronics. And I bet the STK bike is worth probably £30,00 compared to the £150,000+ superbike. A fifth of the price, only 2% slower on a lap. THAT's the direction SBK needs- far lower costs, less aids, a true return to production racing.

Early days, but good to see that Chas Davies is showing good pace on the Beemer, and keeping up his record of being fast on everything he's ever thrown a leg over. Getting top kit has been a long time coming (overdue IMO). CD is solid and unflappable, mentally tough and is fast. I reckon he could well be worrying the hell out of Melandri before too long.
