Wow.  Steven Odendaal is doing okay in testing on the Ten Kate Yamaha 600.  He is consistently in the top 5.

Looking forward to this year's racing, with the hopefully more competitive RRR and Bautista taking up the battle.Also Redding coming to grips with the V4 R Pani ( as he did so well with in BSB. ) Seems the Kwack  champ is already settling in, if testing is anything to go by.

For sure Sheepman.  This may be the year that will make WSBK worth watching again.  Testing indicates that if Rea / Kawasaki wins the championship again, he will have worked for it.

Can't wait for this weekends races!!!
Bautista has fastest straight line speed, but no where near top 10 :/

Also keep an eye out for Odendaal on the 600 WSSP, going to be excellent and a title contender for sure

Ok it seems WBSK has sorted its shit out. Those were 3 absolutely cracking races. The new blade looks strong and im sure will only get stronger. 329kph top speed. All in all a very positive start to the season 
Pass this way once!

Sure - enjoyed the close ( front bunch racing ) a lot. Lowes came good, as did Redding. Slow race pace put pressure on Rea in front and the chasers capitalized on that   :thumleft:

Looking good so far.  Three very close fought races.

Well done to our #4 Steven Odendaal who finished 7th in the WSSP race.

But where are the Hondas? :sip:

Race 1:  5th and 6th
Race 2:  6th and 12th
Superpole Race: 8th and 15th

Way better than the previous few years and looking good.  Watch for Bautista and Haslam as the season progresses.

Indeed.  Redding out on a WSBK spec bike first time and he makes three podiums.  Chaz and the Ducati seems to not love each other much.

mmmmmm..... Methinks the love Ducati had for Chaz is waning somewhat, he will need some results to keep this seat imo...

Some fairly exciting races this past weekend. Johhny Rea having to work for it these days it seems.
