WSB Donington Race Two: Sykes secures first ever double-podium at Donington.

Race two of the European round of the FIM World Superbikes at Donington Park began with Sykes looking to secure his first, ever double-podium and with the locally-based Frenchman, Guintoli looking to maintain his championship points lead. As in race one, Sykes was fast out from the lights and within three laps had broken the lap record that he had set...

Sykes

Am I only the only who thinks the Suzuki GP team should take a bet on Sykes and give him a ride? He definitely has the speed for it and could work out for them.

Wato

Agree he's defiantly good enough but I'd rather he didn't because I love watching him in wsb, he's good enough to write his name into wsb folklaw with the foggy and Bayliss greats!

Love to see Stoner on a Blade in WSB..he'd probably put it top 10 regular.

No?..let him have a go on the Panigale then.

WSB

Hey Wosi hadn't ye realised Casey gone fishing,furking fed up wid the polotics of motogp,such a shame :(

But I like ye game of finding ex motogp stars a new role in WSB, a bit like pin the tail on the donkey or this could be find the donkey a seat.Honda? nah burnt bridges,Aprilia?nah Max has scored twice with that lady,Panigale?maybe if he pays Ducat back the 30 million he owes/stole from them.So it's Suzuki, Kawasaki, BMW or rallying

Too good

I'm beginning to think that Sykes is a little too good at this WSBK thing to stay for much longer. Suzuki should take a punt on him, or maybe Kawasaki can rob a bank and build him a prototype. Given how he regularly destroys his team-mate, who is known to be pretty sodding quick himself, I think he may have outgrown this series.

 

I mean no disrespect to WSBK by saying that, I love watching it, but it's not the pinnacle of the sport. In fact, along with BSB, it's the only race series that I can still afford to go and watch in person.

class act

Brilliant weekend with Tom and Sam in a class of there own ,

but only 17 Bikes on the Grid ??? for a world championship round

Simply Not good enough for a world Championship ?? at world championship prices

but it was a cracker of a weekend ,

even if you take into account the way Donnington treats it campers and fans. The camp site was run like a prison camp (the security guards were great but following instructions),every one had to remove there cars to a separate park all bikes had to be parked outside the camp site and no barby's allowed (come on we are adults!) with no bear tent no band no shop they lost out on mega money, i just don't understand how they cant seem to come to terms with the concept of looking after the punter ? and they will spend the money at your track ?? and they will tell everyone they had a great time and more will return, pity that as the track is good, Pity Palmer don't run it
