Yes he has had a couple of chances when he replaced Stoner on the Repsol Honda for a couple of races at Misano and Aragon in 2012 after Stoner was injured. He did finish in the points with an 8th and a 7th so he obviously wasn't too shabby, but that was 6 years ago.

True perhaps but isn't the imperative on the others to seriously raise their game rather than for the organisers to go down the micro-management of the sport/show (take your pick) in a bid to hamper one man, his bike and team?

There's a worldwide survey on the Superbike World Championship.

DORNA really pushed the news of Alvaro riding a Ducati next season, didn't they? Almost every other article on the official website was about Alvaro. I guess they had to drum up interest somehow!

He's Spanish, then own and run the series.

Says all you need to know about Dorna.

It was the same when Flammini ran it and Biaggi went there.

Portimao.

Portimao race 2 was probably one of the better races of the season, really good watch. What a fabulous circuit, I could watch a single bike lap that circuit all day.

As for the supersport races, holy cow, you couldn't make it up.

Lavila saying Rea has no charisma!

From a man, who was hardly captain charisma himself and represents SBK and is Spanish, the same as the organisers.

A great quote.

I heard that too but I honestly think it's a translation problem. I think he just chose the wrong words while trying to convey the that idea that Rea is not a Rossi type character who can dominate and still have people turn up to watch.

I think because WSBK racing is supposed to be closely fought and it hasn't been the last few seasons

If anyone simply uses a translation such as "Google" then it can throw up all sorts of nonsense.
My wife was looking though the notes of our community meetings from the last 20 years that (I would think) were translated from Spanish to English by Google and it was like a comedy sketch with all the "literal" meanings !

Well whatever people say about the WSB series it is looking good for next year, with new bikes (especially Ducati) and several good riders coming out of MotoGP will they be able to make Rea look slow ?

I doubt it, his lack of ambition to do anything more tricky just means I Haven't watched a race this year I'm afraid. Its not a very good series let's be honest
