Misano WSBK Spoiler

Ok so the F4 did not do shit this weekend and I have a question.



How much of the lack of success is due to the rider and how is due to the bike this season..? I am of the impression a lot of it is the rider. Just a gut feeling. Camier seemed to be able to get more out of the bike than Torres.

The F3 is a different story. Congrats on a great showing today

Hard to say but we know this much...Camier on the F4 was beating up on the Honda. Now Camier on the Honda is beating the F4( barely). The RC is an old pig lol. The Honda is new and cutting edge. It should be whipping MV and so should the BMW but they barely do. So i guess Jordi deserves some props. Personally I think the F4 should retire and take all those funds and put them into the WSS team. The F3 is a real world contender for race wins...the F4 is not and never will be.

Just have to say that Rea has excellent race craft. I know he has a good machine, well set up, but some of the passes were well constructed.

Isn’t the English language funny. We read something and get totally different messages.

If you take the first lines, he says that they simply don’t get enough time to set up for the tyre allocation that they get.

My sad face was the bit where they explore the possibility that they might not be there next year...

How long will they race the F4 when MV will not longer be making it? The F3 is doing great, how I wish they would of designed a new F4.

Since our sportschannel is always cutting down an entire race to 20 minutes I never get to see what happens to Torres.
Race 1 he fell down, what happened in race 2?

As for WSS the F3 is kicking major ass in that beestorm of R6's.

He must have fallen. He was running about 9th and then he was gone.

No the F4 was developing some fumes or smoke and Jordi was black flagged, and he was running in P13 at the time early in the Race.
