Surprised nobody started this yet! I guess with all the racing going on this weekend, GP, WSBK, MotoAmerica, there's a lot going on...gonna be great!

Anyway...FP1 Ducati in 1st and 2nd. FP2, 3rd and 4th behind the Kawasakis. Like I said...Davies likes this track. He'll do well in the race if he keeps it up on 2 wheels.

The replacement guy, Fores, is doing fantastic too, right behind Davies each time. Impressive!

Quali was good… thou, I'm still betting Chaz suffers on the straight's and with rear tire wear.

I'm betting Chaz finishes 2nd or 3rd in both races behind the kawasaki's and/or perhaps Haslam. They're using a different configuration then last year, so I think the heavy breaking issues they had in the past going into the corner at the end of the straight, won't be as much of a problem this year.

Should be an exciting race!

Superstock 1000 field is also pretty bunched up with all the new bikes. Should be another fun one to watch. Interesting to me that the SSTK bikes are only down a few KM/hr in the traps.
Yeah the WSBK bikes have really been limited this year...last year they were about 15 km/h faster on most tracks. Nice to see a bunch of new Yamahas on the STK1000 grid. And a couple of Aprilias...oddly enough, no Hondas though!

Holy Shit........

Sunday, 12 April 2015 11:48 +0000 UTC






First win for Ducati in WorldSBK since 2012 and first ever in Superbike for the Panigale.

The second 18-lap race at MotorLand Aragon, run in much warmer conditions, was won by Briton Chaz Davies (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Superbike Team), after a dominating performance. The Welshman led from turn one to build up a comfortable lead courtesy of a stellar race pace, eventually taking the flag for his fifth career win by 3.1 seconds. Davies last won a WorldSBK race at the Nürburgring in Germany in 2013, but his victory in Spain not only ended Ducati’s 58-race winning drought but also marked the first win for the Panigale R machine in the series.

Race 1 winner Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team), suffering from a fever, battled hard throughout the whole race with former team mate Leon Haslam (Aprilia Racing Team – Red Devils), who looked much more at home in race 2 than he did in the earlier encounter. Second position would eventually go to Rea, thus extending his championship lead to 26 points, with Haslam taking the final place on the rostrum as the pair were split by just 0.5s at the chequered flag.

Jordi Torres (Aprilia Racing Team – Red Devils) took a well-earned fourth position, circulating more or less alone for the latter part of the race, the rookie looking pleased on his return to the pit box. Xavi Fores claimed another solid result on his debut weekend with the Aruba.it Ducati Superbike Team in fifth.

David Salom (Team Pedercini Kawasaki) completed the top-6 after overhauling Leandro Mercado (Barni Racing Ducati), Michael van Der Mark (Pata Honda World Superbike Team), Ayrton Badovini (BMW Motorrad Italia) and Nico Terol (Althea Racing Ducati) in the final two laps.

Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) was running fourth and looked comfortable before high-siding spectacularly on lap five. Reigning champion Sylvain Guintoli (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) also fell at the fast turn 14 which ends the lap, the Frenchman was able to walk away.

Alex Lowes (Voltcom Crescent Suzuki) had another race to forget, the young English rider running off track in the early stages before recovering to salvage two points with a 14th place finish at the flag.

Fuck yeah!!! Did I not say that several weeks ago??? I said the Panigale would win before the GP15 and that it would be Davies at Aragon to do it! Should've bet money on that!!! Suck on that Tye! :popcorn:

This was a great fuckin day! :yo: :ahhh:

It was a bummer Chaz lost out on the first race by 0.051 seconds only! I was really impressed with his aggression at the end...normally he would've stayed behind, but he gave it his best and put up a hell of an effort. Then he said, "fuck this" and ran away with it from the start in the next race! :D
