SPOILERS!! WSBK San Marino GP

Missed Superpole1 but what a cracking last 3 minutes to SP2. 8th position start for Camier in race 1 this afternoon in front of Davies Ducati!

Unlucky for Camier. Would've been a solid 5th no doubt.

Yeah a shame he got caught up in the fallers at turn1/2 and had to go out into the gravel. I think he ended up 20th at one point and good effort to get back to 8th. The Kwaki pair ran away with it as usual.

The end of F3 super sport title hopes

A sad sad day for Mv at Misano.

Last year Cluzel was on pole with 1'37"4 compared to his time this year of 1'39"3. Last year Cluzel went on to victory with the other Mvs finishing 3 and 5th. The year before, Cluzel also won. Anyone here betting on a chance in hell repeat this year?

The technical commentator for Italian tv has said that the bike will have to be completely redeveloped 'da capo' to fit with the new rules. They speculated that private Mvs are sometimes doing slightly better because they're engines are less pushed and therefore easier to control. The story breathlessly reported by speedweek about Zanetti's illegal engine is perhaps related to Mv's reported desperate efforts to homologate new parts for engine which no longer can work as it was designed to...

Does anyone believe that Mv has the money to properly redo the bike?

We may well see Cluzel gone even before the end of the year. He and his mechanics are practically at each other's throats and apparently his contract is such that if by August he isn't in top three either side can withdraw.

Sadly, with new rules, we're the losers here....

Yeah thought it was 20+, I think Davies was about the same and he finished 4th, was firing past people.

Slightly annoying that two guys on Italian bikes in Italy got almost no coverage as they stormed through the pack.

MV Agusta Reparto Corse was definitely not in luck this weekend.
Yeah great recovery from Leon yesterday.
Followed by a good start from Jules but then things turned sour.
Jules crashed and Leon had any technical issue.
Yeah Gino Rea drove a fine race again.
All in all I too fear the time for the F3 in its current configuration is over in WSS.
And I said that already at the begin of the season.
Kawasaki fans have a good time I guess.
