2015 Racing Chat thread! ***SPOILERS INSIDE***

Racing for 2015 is about to start.

WSBK at Phillip Island. Let's go #21!


To be honest, I just want to watch some close racing. If Troy Bayliss (my favorite SBK racer of all time) gets into the top 10 it was be sick considering he's been well retired for years.




Time for: BRRAAAAAPPP!!!

That second race was off the charts all the way to a photofinish at the end. Can someone explain to me how the MV's make it even slightly interesting to watch the 600s race? They were way gone by the 5th lap.

Just watched the WSBK races; I am speechless. I have never felt so breathless (and happy) watching WSBK races before. Both races were absolutely mesmerizing, I plan on rewatching them....probably twice.

Haslam's save managing to keep it upright for that long on the grass and then make the corner was jaw-dropping.

I hope he takes the title this year, he has the talent but never really gelled with a bike the way he did with the RSV4 at Philip Island. I also enjoyed how he commented on getting too close to Rea to be able to slipstream past Rea at the end of Race 1 and he was in the exact same position at the end of Race 2, but this time he nailed the manoeuvre perfectly and got the win......my facial muscles are sore from smiling.

Honorable mention to the rookies VD Mark and Torres, great debuts......

Great races indeed. I am personally rooting for Chaz Davies.

Also, what VD Mark did to Tom Sykes in race 1 was BS, I guess it's "racing" but that was borderline stupid. I understand guys will do a lot to win, but they were not anywhere near the podium at the time. Either way, it was still a fantastic race.


As for WSS that new guy Smith on the 600RR was a hoot to watch. Love how he was sliding the bike around in corner entry. I wish I could do that.




As for Michelin tire test for the big boys... Didn't end up too well.

You and me both.

I can't stop raving about that Philip Island SBK weekend, I just watched the WSS race and it was scintillating to say the least. Kyle Smith is supposed to be a rookie; I have never seen anyone go into that hairpin as sideways as he did and still make the corner, he is definitely someone to look out for. I was rooting for Rea and he put in a last lap from heaven to take the last podium spot so that was cool.

Sofuoglu, that incident he had at turn 1 looked like it woke him up, he was charging through the packs.

I'm rooting for Haslam, I always root for Aprilia (when Yamaha aren't there) and I really like Haslam so I'll always be rooting for him. I used to like Sykes but he complains a lot at times, that turn one move by VD Mark was real real aggressive, borderline, some will say he shouldn't have been in that position in the first place. Honestly, if I was Sykes I would be furious so I'm not holding his contempt against him this time. I've read that psychologically putting a hard pass like that on someone will give you an advantage in the future and will let them always yield to you, not sure if it's true though.

That depends on the rider's mentality. At a trackday, I don't really care what people do, I just take my time and enjoy riding my motorcycle. If someone pulled a stunt like that, I'd definitely chat with them and let them know it could endanger others.

But in a race, it's on like Donkey Kong. I try to make sure I make clean passes and leave a margin of error. If someone does that to me, it doesn't change me one bit so long as they don't force me to crash. If I am still on two wheels, I will chase that person down and pass them in a corner they least expect it.

I've been following the Lowe's brothers and Chaz since they hit the bigger racing series (BSB/WSS) so I still root for them. I wish Sam would do better in Moto2, kid has a lot of talent. Same thing with Kyle Smith, I hope he can keep it up for the rest of the year.

Yup pretty much no limit unless someone intentionally tries to make you crash.

I really hope to see some close battles all the way to the finish in GP this year. If not I'll likely stick to watching WSBK as the racing is much closer with up to 4-5 riders all from different manufacturers fighting for the win. Moto3 is also fantastic for close racing all the way to the checkered.

Daytona 200 runs tomorrow. It's primarily a field of amateur racers, with a handful of big names. It's kind of a shame how irrelevant the race is this year. I look forward to it every year. Spring is here. Anyways, its going to stream live on fanschoice.tv. 1pm. I think other than being there in person, its the only way to watch.

^The link if anyone wants to watch right now! So far 19 laps in. Great racing so far, insane amounts of lead changes due to the drafts off the high banks of Daytona.

Less than 10 laps to go. Still a close within the top 3!

It was a bummer for Eric Wood going down he's a local rider from LRRS which is where I race. He was doing really well too.

That was a fantastic finish by Eslick. He's probably one of my favorite American riders. I wish he did better so he can get onto the international series.


I remember the pass he did back in Laguna, I'll never forget it.

WSBK is on this weekend! Bayliss is back for round 2. Hopefully he can manage a top 10, that would be awesome.

Hopefully, Chaz can get it together to get at least 1 win and another podium. Would be a good confidence booster for him.


Racing is starting STUPID early around . I don't know if I'll be awake to watch it live. Race one is scheduled for 2AM EST I think?

Wow! What a race in WSS. Hollywood ending for the first ever Thailand event by a Thai rider. Fantastic racing.

Race 1 in WSBK, old man Bayliss pulled off a top ten finish.
