Disappointing to se the MV look so slow.... maybe with time it will improve. It may be too heavy on bends and too slow on the uptake on the straight...????

Well I just got back from the WSBK races at Philip Island and it was anything but boring., It was simply sensational weekend.
Philip island is such a fast (average speed 175km/h) circuit and is right on the ocean that so many factors come into play, it is all the riders favourite. The top bikes were doing over 310 kmh down the straight into turn one.
The first race was a huge battle with Biaggi getting mugged by the SBK regulars and it took him about 10 laps to get out of the pack and try and mow down Bayliss and Toseland but ran out of time.
The second race had about 6 guys you could throw a blanket over, with Toseland eventually holding on to win.
I was lucky enough to be in the pits and even got on the grid.
I can tell you Biaggi is having a ball and will be a real threat.
Toselands Honda is wickedly fast and Bayliss did everything but ride the wheels off his Ducati. Fantastic.
As for the MV he had some major problems with the clutch. He was right in front of me at the starts, and just could not get it off the line and was dead last so he did well to catch up and beat some other riders.
This racing really is the best with the riders getting two goes at it on the day, I had a ball!

The racing was definately great. I viewed the races from Siberia which is close to the action although a friend said watching them slide out of turn 11 was pretty good.

Some pics of some of the MVs at the Island last weekend along with the Honda girls.

when the 3rd place bike is 10 seconds off the lead.... that isn't racing at all, as far as i am concerned
:jsm:

Greg, have you ever been at a racetrack or having a amateur race on your own?

10 seconds is nothing after 23 rounds... belive me. You always see the first rider but you could not get closer as hard as you try... hopefully not too hard. :naughty:
Also if you watch a race at the track, then it´s like nothing when one rider is 10 seconds behind the other.
It was an interesting race with great slides and smoking tyres.

... or have you said it for fun? :popcorn:

We have some good articles from a guy who is responsible for the data recording of the racing team in the German Forum.

Only to make the situation clear: And a big point was - They only got the Streetbike near christmas 2006 (not tuned at all).
Then they had testrides in Valencia and Jerez to get familiar with the bike. Then middle of Januray they started to get the racing parts... Bike was equipped with racing parts 09.02. (complete Superbiketuning in under six weeks :jsm: ); shipping for Losail was 15.02. - so Losail was the first real testride on the Superbike... with a engine failure in the first training :banghead:
Also, they have now the teething troubles, which the established teams don´t have, such like clutch setup, steup wheeliecontrol, tractioncontrol... and so on...
So guys, please give them time... I´m shure, they will get better results in the mid-season; I think, a top 10 result is realistic.

Hi OZ749S, well not quite that simple.

I was lucky enough to be in the pits and was up close and personal with Bayliss and Biagga etc. I can tell you that Ducati is very special. The engine is more like a time bomb than anything close to a road machine. I saw the traction control setup which is incredible. When you hear Bayliss leaving the tight Honda corner you can hear it kicking in and while he holds it open and the others are wheelspinning or wheeling. So no doubt when the 1000 s are allowed the same rules as Ducati you will see this technology on all bikes I am sure. But this year it may just give enough edge for Bayliss to win it again. But I must say Toseland and the Honda look like a winning package and Biaggi will only get better.
I attended both post race conferences and Biaggi was laughing and enjoying himself, I would not have imagined he was like that.
Great weekend.

:yo: and that is exactly why Ducati should also be allowed an advantage in cubic capacity, the twin is at its limits, and if the 4's are allowed the extra's, then the twins should be allowed the additional cubes...watch Honda fight it, they have a sniff of being competitive again now, and would hate to get beaten by a twin again, same goes for all the 4's....
