merak1974 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
A Ducati-Kawasaki 2-1 this weekend.
Big cheers to Rinaldi and his first World Superbike victory, and hats off to Rea for superb management of his championship chances.

What a cracking ding dong battle at Aragon, it seems at last that Rae has real competition as long as you're a flyweight on a Ducati although the new Fireblades are pretty much up thee as well.

... and the circus now moves on to Barcelona. 36 points between Rea and Redding, so the championship is still quite open.

Does anybody still watch this, I am afraid it has become about as low as F1 on my radar, simply the most dull, unwatchable race series out there right now for me.

Dominated by a guy who should not even be there

Great racing day on Sunday with Davies and van der Mark taking their first victories of the season and Gerloff his first ever podium, but the impossible Rea now has a 51 point advantage on Redding. Still 124 points left to fight for though...

Nothing's impossible if things go right for him

How can you say Rea should not be here?
It is a World Championship with heavy factory support and he is a massive talent. We have seen all sorts drop back from MotoGP and get cleaned up by him.
It is also the one form of racing where the barriers to entry are really low, so anyone with a little backing could challenge him.

This thinking would equally apply to Hamilton ( thank you Mercedes) and Mark Marquez.

Rea has every right to be there. If he wants to stay it's his choice. If he wants to leave, it's his choice, just as it's people's choice to go to WSBK from whatever series.

Maybe people shouldn't concentrate so much on him and concentrate more on what makes the series great. After all, he hasn't always had it his own way and we still get great racing

Actually we have seen the likes of Hamilton and Marquez beaten at times, so there's hope there too

Pretty good racing at Barcelona. Great to see the young American Gerloff show what he's capable off. I'm a bit of a fan.

Yeah the racing was good at Barcelona, Rea didn’t have it all his way, although Redding didn’t quite have it in him in R2 to capitalise. And that young American really looks good

That monsoon in the Supersport was really something wasn’t it?

Yes! Nearly axle deep in sections of the track. Talk about a surprise winner.

....and the "young American Gerloff " was not long behind in joining them on the deck.
Fairly exciting final lap for the places.

A wet and exciting race weekend in France is over, with excellent performances by local hero Loris Baz, and Rea building up a lead of 59 points in the championship, which will be practically impossible for Redding to reel in over the final race weekend in Estoril in two weeks' time.

The manufacturers' championship is still open though, with Kawasaki leading Ducati by only 26 points, and 62 points to be decided in the final round.
