Bad result for Haslam at the weekend. Max Biaggi extends his lead in the title race. The RSV-4 is really coming into it's own now, Good to see the BMW getting better though. It's win will come soon there is no doubting it.

Haslam crashed in testing today aswell, think Biaggi could have this now

It was good to see both Ten Kate's doing shit (Nothing against JR though, i like him) instead of just the one Laughing

It's fairly obvious that Max N has some metal issues about riding again after his terrible crashes he suffered last year. You could see back in 2008 and even early 2009 that he was riding well, But I don't know if he will recover or will this be his last season in WSBK?.

Oh dear Max N crashes again. Well twice actually. Poor for Haslam again. Cannot really see Biaggi dropping big points. Aprilla seems very realiable. His does anyway.

Hopefully Haslam can bring something to Silverstone though, But you have to fancy those Aprillas again on a track like that.

This is just word of mouth, I haven't been able to find it anywhere, But aparently Xaus went to check up on Corser after his crash and asked "How you doing Troy" and Corser replied, "Whos Troy" lol! Was a bad crash.

great racing today. You have to say this new Silverstone layout works really well for bikes. 10/10.

Would of liked to have seen Haslam win both races but he took a few points of Biaggi so it's not to bad.

Awful crash in world supersport aswell. I thought the worst when watching it. Can't believe a Dislocated shoulder is rumoured to be the only injury sustained.

I guess the only reason it wasn't as bad as what it could of been is due to the fact Lascorz was still travelling fast while on the floor so the bike hitting him was better at that speed then if Lascorz was stopped still on the track.

Great battle by Eugene Laverty to beat Sofi.


Haga to retire at the end of the season?

Yea was a horrible crash that, but an awesome race after the restart (Alex Lowes lucky not to be collected aswell).

Heard a rumour that Kawasaki are looking at Haga for next year for the ride along Vermeulen

I was trying to help a woman at the time with some info and trying to watch the re-start of the race at the same time, I just went " oh bloody hell not another one" Laughing

Kawasaki would be stupid to take him on. Kawasaki need someone like a Troy Corser who will go their and help develop the bike to were it should be. Haga isn't that type of rider, as we all know he has a different riding style to everybody else.

Moto GP is a possibility, Spies will be taking Rossi's seat so Cal could easily go to Tech 3.

Just wondering if anyone else has heard the rumours going around that Ducati may be pulling out of WSBK at the end of the season so their can solely concentrate on Giving Rossi what he needs in Moto GP.

Ducati are at continuous disadvantage in WSBK so I could see this turning out to be true. Although their is talk as well of Colin Edwards going back to WSBK and onto a Ducati so who knows. Laughing

Well you know, I don't like to boast, But whats that been? 3 weeks since I first mentioned it. Cool It's good having people in high places.

It wasn't suprising really. I just hope the other rumours are true about Melandri going to BMW. Cool

Watched one of the most entertaining races i've ever seen today.

World Supersport. A great battle between Laverty and Sofuoglu. Swapping places on pretty much every lap and about 3 times each lap.

If you haven't seen it, I won't spoil it for you but it's definatly needs watching. You cannot miss it. ten

Bye bye Ducati Sad Sad Wsbk has finished for another year. Sad

Great racing once again though. Much better then Moto GP again.
Good victory for Cal, What has gone on with JT this season. If he isn't careful it will be a Rob-Mac bike in BSB he will be riding soon and that is not good at all Laughing

Cannot believe how Guintoli got a penalty as well, Were the stewards kidnapped from F1 for the weekend, Shocking decision which cost him of a great result. Challenging for 2nd place but overshoots the corner, drops back down to 3rd place yet still gets a ride through scratch

Lots of changes happening for next year to try and keep track of as well.

Haga on an Aprilla again, 3rd time lucky maybe?

It'll be interesting to see how well Haslam does on the BMW.

I know this is news for next year but it's still 2010.

Good news!!!!

WorldSuperbikes will be back at Donnington Park next year.


Bad news is, it's scheduled for March Rolling Eyes So infact it won't go ahead at all because the track will be covered with Snow and nobody gets to see racing.

Who on earth was the guy who suggested, Hmm I know lets go to England in March for a World wide racing event.

That's very odd considering most international moor racing events in the UK are held in the Summer.

God damn, Donington in March is going to be savage. Good to see the track getting back to its former level though

I have to say it's a real gamble scheduling the second round at Donington in March, i'm pleased they the track has got a major event added for next year, but it could be a fantastic warm spring day or more fitting for snowmobiles!!
BST starts that day, so the organisers must have looked and said "yeah, it'll be nice"

it might be a case of they have a free date on that weekend and every other free date for donington clashes with already schuduled wsbk rounds?
