WSBK 2018

Post by rennie » Sun Feb 25, 2018 10:41 am

A slightly strange but interesting first couple of races from Australia!
Not sure what's going on with the tyres and compulsory pit stop in race2!
The outcome doesn't appear to be as clear cut as the last few years.

Good to have bikes on the TV again :cheers:

Not happy about th3 coverage, adverts in feature race, not live so skipping laps, one second rae was 5th then next second he is 2nd. Also when th3 second batch were exiting the pits why the hell was th3 camera on Jacobson in 1st when he hadn't pitted and not on where all the action was

The highlights will probably be on ITV4 in the week.
We have Eurosport so recorded the races and watched when we got up.
The pitstops seem to have confused everybody! :lol:

As it is a mandatory stop they are forcing on them, they set a minimum time to try and stop the better teams gaining (or too much of) an advantage.

It's to try keep the gaps the same coming out the pits as going in.

Just caught up on this. Not a massive fan of the coverage - esp. post the pit stops in race 2. Some close racing bodes well for the season. I like the look of the Hondas this year, but will still be hard to look beyond those Ducati’s and Kawasaki’s over a full season.

Good to see some bike racing on the telly though!
