Red face Spoiler Imola SBK

Yeeeha, great result for super sport. 3rd! Very fortunate, but I will take it.
Crap coverage, I think I saw the F3 once on screen, but he did have a very lonely race after the crash of the people ahead.

To finish first, you first have to finish.

3rd is 3rd, so doesnt matter if other people go down.
+Pretty obvious De Rosa took it easy after the two riders went down.

He had to ride around them and lost another 1-2 seconds to leaders bequase of that. He had enough space to P4 so he just rode it home.

Sorry if it has been mentioned already somewhere else. Did Ducati have a rules change before this race?

I believe they did last race.
Only a 500rpm reduction.

I have no bias or favouritism for any rider, but it was good to see Rea back in the frame and also to see Davies shine. I think it does show that the bikes (Duke and Kawa) are very equal, and any advantages now are by rider not machine. Perhaps if the Yamahas were not scrapping between themselves, they might also have been in the frame.

Hello all, In my area they didn't show the Supersport race . Only a partial interview with the winner and a flash showing of the MV/DeRosa and that DeRosa rode a good race .
Since Dorna was looking to penalize the New Ducati V4 before it ever entered a race . Ducati had already had a lower RPM redline Ducati V4 ready on day 1 of the season. Ducati having time to prepare for getting screwed doesn't justify Dornas screwing Ducati. I HOPE the new Ducati V4 still has a Horsepower/top end advantage over the Kawasaki as the Kawasaki ZX10RR is a better handling bike than the new Ducati V4. Otherwise we will have anouther season of Rea winning by 10 seconds like he did at Imola.


Anyone know if the new BMW S1000RR got the engine upgrades to increase Horsepower at Imola? Ironically when the 1st generation S1000RR was racing in WSBK its chassis was a streetbike based design (BMWs quote?) but the bike was a power house but had an inherent handling deficit. This time around the New BMW S1000RR chassis is derived from a MotoGP design (BMW quote) The New BMW S1000RR is a fantastic handling machine, but seriously lacks in Horsepower.
