Donington Park WSBK – spoilers

Donington Park WSBK – spoilers

A really good race, congratulations to VDM for the first Dutch win in WSBK history! I was absolutely rooting for him against Rea at the end.

Not a huge fan of green motorcycles, but the Kawasaki boys still put on a heck of a show, was a good overall race. Unfortunately Jordi couldn’t quite get the MV into the top 10

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

Gotonas fast as this POS lap top couldget on ( said not enough memeory the first time I started it up. Congrates to Yamaha didn't see race or look at trap speeds ect but the R1 has Come a LONG way. Lets not forget it was a grenade with wheels when they started in WSBK and seriously down on power. ( Due to Japanaese economy the R1 was Rushed into development Yamaha Suzuki Honda shutdown R&D =Good business I would do the same) Vandermark is at least the second fastest rider on the grid he just needs consistency , but as they say its easier to get a fast rider to find consistency than a slow ,consistant rider to find speed. Howdid Lowes do? He is a fast rider also? read MV/Torres didp

COMPUTER POS heard MV/Torres did poorly . Donnington likes power MV needs power. if there tune isn't perfect they are down 10+hp I have been told. Bein sports aired tennis instead of race. AND my heath is serious problem. I have Wilsons syndrome as well as no discs in 1/2 my spine.AND they now tell me I had heart attack. ( on TV they don't show you what happens to Super athletes when they get old lol) If I cant get meds and Wilson Syndrom acts up my body temp drops to 93-92 degrees you die of Hypotheremia . No one know why it happens and no cure.

Congrats to Yamaha and VDM. Nice to see the Kwakas having to fight for it.
The Ducati's had a terrible day of it didn't they.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Our eurosport commentator mentioned that Yamaha called in some smart japanese boys to work on the electronics on the yamaha.
He also mentioned that yamaha could ride with a rear tire that was 5mm higher, and thus putting more rubber on the ground.

So either it was the tire, electronics or a combonation of both to make the yamaha win.
Either way, it was a good race and nice fight.

Finally a victory for VDM. WUW

Nothing like seeing the champ getting beat on a little bit. Too bad it was another stupid Kawasaki that passed him at the end. VDM and Yamaha are flying high. Amazing.
