I know it's early in the year alright but there's a big gap then until round 2 in mid April, what alerted me was news about the 2 day test from Philip Island which finished yesterday, Checa fastest in WSB & Sam Lowes fastest in WSS

A great result for Aprilia in Race 1, Guintoli wins from Laverty & Fabrizio
Checa crashes & takes out Melandri.

Looks like Sylvain's decision not to go with Suzuki was the right choice.......he looks good on the Aprilia, as does Fabrizio.
Hope Carlos is OK, plenty of time to heal before next races....Panigale looks to have the pace to stay with the front runners.
Tom Sykes kept out of trouble, very sensible rides while injured.....

Did anyone else hear Jack saying that a rumour was going round the paddock that Silverstone would not be holding a round this year and being replaced by Turkey????

Trying to contact someone at Silverstone for more info but not fully staffed yet.....will post any further news asap......

Dutch commentator Jurgen vd Goorbergh said the same. Would be very sad as Silverstone is a nice venue for this class.

Good showing from Aprilia, Fabrizio really surprised me with the Red Devils Entry. As a Dutchman I'm of course thrilled that Michael vd Mark held on so well in WSS behind Sufu and Lowes. Btw, the bikes from Yaknich (Lowes and Leonov), aren't those the ParkinGO bikes from last year? If so they're three years old and still running so fast

Racesport.nl reports that Silverstone stays on the calendar. It looks like Istanbul might replace the Brno-event

Looking good for Chas Davies in the 1st WSB here this Morning, he's the runaway leader at the moment, with just a few laps to go at this Aragon Circuit........

The Welsh Wizard is certainly having a great second race here today as well, and at the halfway point is once again leading the race. Can he complete a brilliant WSB race double now.........

What a fantastic Sunday for Chas Davies ( and the BMW Team) out in Aragon, TWO brilliant wins and 40 points in the WSB Championship, to move him into 2nd place. It doesn't get any better for the Welshman today, unless they play the Welsh National Anthem on the Podium that is.........

Is it just me or does the WSB grid look somewhat depleted this year? BSB has more depth in the field......

Top day for Chaz Davies

What a disasterous opening qualifying session for Chaz Davies who is OUT of the next two now, and will be starting 13th on the Grid tomorrow..........
