    Holy Jesus!!! I guess that kind of pisses all over the speculation about whether the Panigale will work as race bike!

  • pooch

    New surface has really dropped lap times – those are smokin’ ! 8 riders in the 1.30’s is a better result than the 2012 MotoGP at the Island.

    Great start to the supers.

  • Cpt.Slow

    Bravo for the season being back! Well, Pani is not still-born- thank goodness and it shows the quality rider that is Carlos. I hope the new stewards recognize that fact and not penalize the bike unjustly.

  • smiler

    The Panigale did come 2nd in Superstocks. Good sto see such close times. Hope it is a good 2 races. Shame it looks like Silverstone is being dropped. Cannot see why they don’t move it to Brands. Best circuit for bikes & for viewing.

  • Gutterslob

    So Sykes and Melandri had the exact same time? How do they decide who’s in front then? Becasue Sykes finished ahead of Melandri in the standings last year, or do they average the best times from the previous qualifying/practice sessions?

  • Awesome!! Whats more interesting is that the Aprilia’s qualified 2-3rd on race tires cause the Rsv cheawed up the rear qualifiers! Laverty did 15 laps in the 31’s so think he’s going to be the man to beat but Checa’s at devil Phillip Island!! WSBK rules!!

  • Gutterslob, I was gonna post that Sykes did the time before Melandri, but that would be incorrect it seems. Melandri did his at 15:43’54.211 local time, Sykes at 15:44’34.913. If that doesn’t determine who goes ahead (which I believe it should), the next step would be to look at the previous timed session. Sykes did a 1’30.740, Melandri a 1’30.931. At least, that’s how it appears it was adjudicated.

    the race is being streamed on at 530 et.

  • I believe it’s 7:30 ET, isn’t it?

  • mudgun

    sorry, you’re right…got a little excited I guess
