Does that show Rea would have no chance in MotoGP then? :lol:

@Westbeef Rea had two outings in MotoGP, in 2007 on Casey Stoners Honda finished 7 and 8th, As for Alvaro Bautista, Phillip Island is one off his best tracks, and I reckon if he's hungry for it he's going to give the brits a run for there money this year, And World Superbikes could do with a bit of spice!!! it's a long time since he won his 125 championship in 2006. :D

I haven't quite got my head around the qualifying "race" thing yet!
I'm hoping it will become more clear when I actually see it :?

@rennie I have to wait to catch highlights on Channel 4?, as we don't subscribe to Tv channels, never seem to have time to watch a full race nowadays, apart from when at trackside :cheers:

An entertaining first race, can't wait to see if the second and third will be the same.

I'm hoping Davies, Camier, Lowes and Sykes can do better and, of course Haslam WILL manage to stay on board !

It’s going to be a very interesting season. The 3 race format is definitely good for the fans.
I recieved an email from either MCN or the WSBK website last year asking me to fill a survey in. One of the questions was something about changing the format and it gave a few options. I actually chose the 3 race weekend. I guess a lot more people chose the same :D

So, who is going to win in Thailand this weekend?
Bautista again? Rea? someone else?

I'll have a punt on Rea getting back to winning ways :D

From his performance in the last meet I’m gonna go with Bautista.

If you remember.
When Rea had the outings on Stoners bike. He was told "Do not crash and ensure you bring it home"
He was in a very difficult situation as he couldn't hunt for the limit.

Just seen the results, his team mate can't seem to find the pace this year, should have kept Melandri in the team. Next thing is they will make Ducati harness the power ☹️.
Anyway back to my Sunbed out here in Maderia 👍.
