Another double for Chaz!!! He has been really impressive this year, winning just as many races as Rea so far. It's unfortunate he DNF'd a few too many times earlier in the season. He could've been right up there in contention for the championship if it wasn't for that. Rea pretty much has one hand on the championship now.

Sofouglu needs to move on to WSBK. Nobody likes a sandbagger! lol...but he signed another year in WSS, but that won't happen yet. That Tuuli guy has been really impressive though. 3rd race in WSS and finished 2nd each time right behind the leader. He will do well next year I bet, especially if he gets on one of the new '17 R6!

I know he's already tried, but that's no reason to give up IMO, just because you're king of one class. The only reason he's so good and won so many WSS championships is because every time someone beats him, they move on up to more challenges. Sam Lowes, Michael VDM, Chaz Davies, etc.

VDM to Pata Yamaha. Marco Melandri to Aruba Ducati and Guintoli and Guiliano going to BSB. Surprised VDM left Ten Kate, guessing he tried the new Honda and said fuck that lol

Well done Jonathan Rea! Consistency wins again. I must say though, as a Davies fan and Ducati fan, I feel bad for him that he had a couple of crashes earlier in the season that really ended up screwing him over. He's got the most wins of the season, and quite a few podiums. He has been pretty much unstoppable in the second half of the season after the break...won every dry race so far, 6 out of 7, and just one left to go tomorrow. I hope he at least snags 2nd place in the championship from Sykes tomorrow. If he wins, hopefully Sykes gets 3rd or worse, and that should do it. If Chaz gets 2nd, then he'll need Sykes to finish 4th or lower.

I don't think Giugliano's faith is decided yet. Nothing's been officially determined yet.

Next year I want to see Hayden on the new Honda, Chaz, and Rea battle it out for the championship until the end!

Wow, what a lame ass move for Rea to allow Sykes to go through, once he realized he couldn't catch Davies for the win. I suppose his team and Sykes will thank him for that, but it's still bullshit from a racing point of view.

Another double for Chaz. He's been fuckin solid since the summer break. Looking forward to next year, and hopes he kicks ass some more then!

I thought Rea letting Sykes through was the proper thing to do since Rea already had the title. A Kawasaki 1-2 is a win win. But yes, from a racing point of view, not the best move.

Yeah I mean it really depends which side of the fence you're on. If you're in the Kawasaki team, or a Tom Sykes fan, then yeah it was good gesture. But if you're a Chaz fan, or Ducati fan, or a racer, or simply a racing fan who just wants to see everyone do their absolute best and earn their results, rather than get handouts from others....then it was kind of a dick move. Just my opinion is all. If someone else lets me pass them in a race on purpose, I wouldn't be all that happy personally.

Auto-renew cost for next year 69.90€. (with the current exchange rate (1.10€) total comes to 77.14$.

It would be a good addition to include FP1-4, but I doubt it will happen.
