I'm just happy for Bautista at this stage, I always felt he was more talented than his results showed in MotoGP.
Yeah even Rea has never managed 9/9 from a season start. :smiley:

Well Rea has managed 9/9 2nd places, so there's that :tongue:

It's good for Bautista and WSBK after the Rea / Kwaka domination of recent times. But Bautista in MotoGP was underwhelming, so for him to click with WSBK in such a way is a nice story for the sport and follows in the footsteps of other more recent MotoGP converts... Biaggi and Checa.

I tuned in to watch the WSBK race at Assen Saturday to see the start was delayed due to bad weather. I went back to it a little later and they were all gridded up ready to start. And then it started to snow. Hard.

Race was postponed and will be run tomorrow (Sunday) morning, time TBC.

yes. Just some 30 km east from Assen, where i live, we had some snow too. But not as much as Assen or around the Nürburgring.

Bautista wins again, Rea 2nd again. Sykes 10th, Melandri & Cortese behind him. Honda looks as lost as ever even with the extra help.

So much for Kawasaki beating a trimmed down Ducati on a circuit with no long straights. Rea will probably bitch about 8th place on the grid.

Rea doing a Trulli train here, if Bautista wanted he'd make a move already. Just waiting now...

van der Mark passed Rea for 2nd.

Can't wait to hear the Kawasaki excuses after this one!

WTF was the last couple of laps of the SSP 300 race like! Choose your own line at the final chicane. Best shortcut wins!

Bautista's winning run ends with 2nd & 3rd place at Imola but guess it's down to his lack of knowledge of this track. Guess that's the only hope for Rea to beat him at non-MotoGP tracks. Race 3 was cancelled due to heavy rain. Toprak got a podium in Race 1!

Jerez Race 1: Bautista wins again, van der Mark 2nd and Rea wrecks Lowes on the final lap to claim 3rd.

Rea has been demoted to 4th place after that BS move on Lowes and drops to back of the grid for Race 2. Melandri inherits the R1 podium.

Deserved it. Sadly it does nothing for Lowe’s who scored no points as a result of Rea’s action
