Congratulations to Carlos Checa, who is finally a World Champion, having clinched the World Superbike title at Magny Cours with three races to go. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

    Congratulations Carlos, Mr consistant this year and raced extremely well, always fairly, and always a gentlemen off the track. Very happy for you and Ducati who in prototype class, don’t have a clue anymore. At least they still got somewhere.

    Reminds me of Bayliss with his consistency and classy demeanor. Ducati fans couldn’t have asked for a better new champion. Well done Carlos.
