Amen! Do we think the Bautista Ducati combination as it stands now is a little too much for Rea and Toprak? Toprak was riding the wheels of his Yahama in the last round and still couldn't hang on to Alvaro. Likewise, Jonny. Fascinating to watch though.

All change, Toprak's triple at Donington soundly seeing off Rea's challenge puts him back in the championship battle, the next round at Most in the Czech republic should be really interesting for the title fight.

Enjoyed the Donington round, Supersport wasnt too bad either.
Rea really did try hard in race 2, how good was Toprak on the brakes...

Brilliant dominance by Toprak. Looking odds on for another title. Bautista threw away a big opportunity with that mistake. Could this be 2019 all over again?

Toprak was in the mood! He's still a contender for the title but I think Bautista and Ducati are still stronger overall. I don't think one fall means a reset back to his 2019 nightmare.

Don't overlook Rea, new lap record in superpole at Most to front the grid.

Wow! what fantastic racing at Most, Redding and Rea shoulder to shoulder and a deserved win for Bautista in race 1. More action today!
Simply some of the best WSBK racing ever.

Enjoyed the last couple of rounds between the top 3, Redding getting the BMW sorted too...

How was Locatelli on the warm up lap and race - lost the plot...

Summer rest in WSBK (sadly for us, superbike fans!).

Perhaps is a good time to put a graph resuming the season so far. The graph shows the evolution of BAU-REA-RAZ through the first 6 rounds (weekends).

[Please, look the graph]

Rea has keep himself in the "Easy" zone all the time. It means his gap to Bautista has never been really worrying.

However, Toprak has been much of time in the complicated zone. In particular, after Misano he was going towards an alarming path to be virtually eliminated in a couple the rounds. Luckily for him and us, he has come back to a merely uncomfortable (but not impossible) zone.

(((
A bit of [boring] explanation:
The scale is the gap divided by the square root of number of remaining races. It is the adequate stat to know the "difficulty" to overcome the gap to leader Bautista in the remaining races.

Mark "10" means the difficulty is approx the same as overcome 10 points in one (long) race (a bit more than the 9 points between 1st and 3rd). Mark "25" means the level of difficulty approx equal to gain 25 points on Bautista in one race, basically BAU getting all wrong and the rider winning the race.

It's been a good season so far. Can't wait for the second half. Still not sure who is going to be champion. Rea has seen a bit of his invincibility that won him so many titles go. Bautista has been good, but needs to stop throwing away so many points. Toprak is looking good for another one, but it's not over yet. He's had a bit of bad luck this year, so you never know.

Anyway great analysis above

Just finished catching up on the action from the Czech round. This is just insanely good racing! Hands down probably the best racing (in terms of the action between the top aliens at the front) anywhere in the motorsport world? Great to see Redding and BMW getting in on the action too.

We may look back over this period and consider it a golden era in years to come. The tempo at the front is just incredible.

I agree, I think too we are in a zenith time in WSBK in, at least, these two last years. Let's enjoy this "astrological conjunction" while it lasts!

Definition of drama: See World Superbikes Magny Cours 2022.

So many talking points, I'm surprised nobody has said a thing.
