Laguna Seca, Race 1:

Sadly, it was same old, same old.  Kawas took off with Ducatis in hot pursuit.  Ducatis both crashed leaving 3rd and 4th open for the Hondas.  Sykes and Rea had a good battle for a while when Sykes suddenly, as almost always, dropped back leaving Rea an relatively easy win.


Race 2:

Almost the same old.  Kawas and Ducatis take off racing into the distance.  This time no crashes from the Ducatis, but a technical failure for Rea.  The real race takes place behind the four factory bikes where the Yamahas, BMW's, Aprilias,  non-factory Ducatis and Kawas put up some lekker dicing.

Agree about Race 1, but I think a bit harsh about Race 2.

Race 2 was exciting with lots of stuff happening all through the race.

I see Stefan Bradl got signed by Honda SBK. Replacing Van der Mark who is going to Yamaha SBK, I believe.

Aprillia back next year as full factory effort with Eugene Laverty behind the bars.

So maybe between the Ducs, the Kawas and Aprillia, it can become a little more interesting again. If Yamaha can also join the party, even better.

And a new Suzuki for 2017 too!

Congrats to JR for winning the WSB trophy for the second successive year. I do however think the Kawa riders are concerned  :eek7: at the recent pace of the Ducati...specially with Davies on board. Next year may be a different story.

Now to survive the 4 month desert period until racing starts next year...  ::)
