I think it is now time to start a new thread ready for the WSBK season as its just over a month away from starting now, and what better way to start this thread by bringing you great news.

Castrol returns to Sponsor the works Ten Kate Honda team.

Should be another cracking season and I cannot predict a winner this year.

Anyone interested in doing WSBK predictions this year?

I have a nice quick and easy game lined up, But have a feeling not many people will be interested?.

Their is always one who crashes right before the start of the season. Laughing

Right anyway, The rules for my prediction league, So if you like the idea let me know and I will do it.

Start off with Superpole, All you have to do is predict who will qualify first, and first only. ( I said am keeping it nice and simple lol.) You get 5pts for predicting Pole Position, which of course means you will get a maximum of 10pts due to there being 2 races and the grid stays the same, For both races.

IE: Biaggi wins superpole, He will be 1st on the grid in Race 1 and Race 2, 5pts each, totalling 10pts.

For the races, Predict 1st, 2nd and 3rd with 10pts for each correct position. So if you guess the podium correctly you will get 30pts. ( No half points for right riders, wrong position), If how you guessed isn't how it finished you get 0pts.

But there is a slight twist, I am bringing a Joker powerpoints system to the game if you like the idea of it. Out of the Two races you can play a joker card. You can only do this for 1 rider and only for 1 race. So pick if you want it for Race 1 or 2 only. So 1 rider could get you 30pts instead of 10.

Example, Lets say this is my guess for the weekend races, playing the joker in the first race, and luckily for me both races finished exactly how I predicted

Race 1

Biaggi 10pts
Rea 10pts
Sykes - Joker 30pts


Race 2
Biaggi 10pts
Rea 10pts
Sykes 10pts


So out of the races I have just scored 80pts, And if biaggi got pole then an extra 10pts is added.

I've tried to make it easy to explain but am guessing i've proberly made it much worse. lol

Sam Lowes did well and was very unlucky to only come in 3rd after leading out of the last corner in WSS.

Got back from Donny a couple of hours ago. Was a brilliant couple of days, If only Saturday wasn't so cold though.

Hopefully got some great video which will need to check when I have time, I have some good photos as Ive looked through them all ready.

Was nice to meet Matt or DTMDeano as he is called on here. lol.

What a great race by Melandri in Race 1. Shame he couldn't repeat it for race 2. The Brits had a fairly mixed weekend, Would of been nice to see one of them take the win but Checa and Melandri look the class of the field. Biaggi is going to have some trouble this season.

I've put a few photos up on facebook from WSBK. I know i've complained forever about facebook but I uploaded those photos within a minute or so. It would take ages normally to do if from imageshack. 1 good thing going for facebook then. Laughing
