The WSB boys are testing at Motorland Aragon with Jonathan Rea preceding everyone with a time of 1’49 “547, also being faster than Dani Pedrosa (1’49” 921) who is testing the KTM MotoGP that has a 20km speed advantage !

Incredible! May be the satellite teams should buy either a single GSX-R or CBR at a dealer and race it? Good idea when it comes to spare some money…

This has been happening for decades, Hislop was quicker on race rubber round Donington on a Ducati 916 than Rossi was on race tyres in the same year.

it's nothing new

This made me look up the relative record laps at Phillip Island.

MotoGP Marc Marquez Honda 1:28.108
Superbike Jonathan Rea Kawasaki ZX10R 1:29.413

Just over a second in it.

Edit: Just discovered afterwards that the 250cc International karts record is 1.28.419! That would be an exciting journey

After the last GP at Jerez there was a test on the Monday, I notice that Vinales did 101 laps so I'm not surprised that he managed to get on top !!
Quartararo didn't test and went back to France to try and sort out his arm pump problem ready for his home GP this coming weekends race at Le Mans. Mark Marquez only did 7 laps compared to his brother and Rossi was near his team mate in lap time, looking forward to it .

Looking forward to this weekend's French GP. For the first time since 2013 MotoGP will be live on FTA. Thank you ITV4!

(Just a little caveat: I am pretty sure they use the same configuration in MotoGP and WSBK, although they will use a different layout in a future F1 race/practice.)

Last season in Motorland II, fastest race lap was 1'48"1 and everyone was faster than this Rea's time except Bagnaia (who retired in lap5, checking in FORIX). Pole was 1'46"9 but that is another animal. I am sure Pedrosa's time is not a "fast lap".

Last season in WSBK, best long race lap was 1'50"1 (there were four long races in total!) and best pole was 1'48"8 (Rea's, of course).

Judging from that, MotoGP is approx 2" faster in Motorland, that is a pretty complete track. It is to say, WSBK is closer to Moto 2 than to MotoGP, being between those two categories.

However, SBKs are massively cheaper than MotoGP bikes... So, kudos to SBK boys (... and girls?)

After a very "iffy" qualification in wet/dry/wet conditions Quartararo put it on pole with team mate Vinales and Miller on the front row. For a while it looked like Marc Marquez (6th) might have got it and then Rossi (9th) who had a "moment! on the last corner.
It looks like the weather is going to be similar for tomorrow, I'll be telling them how to do it from my sofa in the dry
