Big weekend for Saffers!
« on: September 18, 2015, 05:53:34 pm »
Yeah.  Start of the RWC, but also on this weekend is the World Superbikes on Jerez in Spain and the Bol d' Or Endurance race on Paul Ricard in France.

From WSBK:

Superstock 1000 Class:  David McFadden (Suzuki GSXR1000) and Mathew Scholtz (Yamaha R1)
European Junior Cup Development Class:  Troy Bezuidenhout, Themba Khumalo, Byron Bester and Dorren Loreiro.

Bol d' Or:

Sheridan Morias.  One o fthe three team riders on a Yamaha R1.

Go gentlemen!  Ride 'em like you would on a South African Sunday brêkkie run and win!   :ricky:

Just like with MOTO GP, watching SBK is a MUST with me.  :biggrin: Really enjoy the battle between Sykes and Rea this year...congratulations to Jonathan Rea who won the 2015 SBK championship in the first race on Sunday...five races before the end of the season!  :thumleft:

I really stand amazed at the number of young men (all over the world - not only in the SBK series) who race these superbikes in the way they do...at mind boggling speeds...  :o the older I become, the more I appreciate their skill.
