WSBK Donnington Park (spoilers eventually)

Sykes will probably be the man to beat given he's won the last six, but I doubt Rae cares.Hopefully it'll be a good battle between all of the manufacturers, especially if Nicky's confidence is up. Also hoping the shorter straight will suit the MV, and it being Leon's home race, maybe we'll see a podium

Anyone here going?

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Think I'll be there Friday to take some pics and nose around but I can't make the weekend. TiVo.

Finally, a real sponsor!!

The announcement of a petrol company sponsorship - who else has the bucks these days? - seems like extremely positive news for the Reparto Corse, and a small sign of encouragement for the firm in this difficult period....though you'd never know it reading some of the posts here.

Leon looked pretty good in FP1 and FP2 and is with 5th fastest trough to Q2.
Worldsbk.com has a nice interview of him with plenty of F4 action footage.

Gino Rea topped the timesheet in FP2 and SSP looks damned competitive.
The Reparto Corse SSP riders had a tough time I guess and a mountain to climb.
Jules was only P13.

Shit! Glad he was slowing down and off line. Bailing was an easy affair.

I remember watching Sykes one year and the side of his engine literally blew out. Almost like a rod went sideways through the engine. Doesn't happen often but when 230HP lets go it can be spectacular

Camier on a good round so far, a top 5 finish is looking very possible. Cam on the R1 is looking really good and is showing there are still some very fast guys in the USA. MV RC just can't seem too get to grips with the new WSS rules and are having trouble again and Cluzels F3 blowing an engine Friday isn't good either.
