Video: World Superbike men tryout flag to flag race simulation

Published: 03 February 2009

In 2009 a new flag to flag ruling has been introduced into World Superbike, meaning races will run from start to finish and won't be stopped for changing weather conditions.

The same ruling was introduced in MotoGP in 2006 leading to exciting pit stops where riders would have to think tactically before coming in to swap bikes.

In preparation for the forthcoming season, World Superbike organisers used the recent all teams test at Parkalgar to enact a dummy run of the new ruling.
