I haven't paid too much attention to WSBK or even MotoGP for that matter but I went to Laguna Seca for WSBK this year and I would love to to see Either Sykes or Rea win again on this new Kawasaki! I defenitely started paying attention a lot more to both MotoGP and WSBK since I went to see it live and I can't really decide who to root for the most yet! Haha so either way Go Kawasaki and Go Sykes and Go Rea! I did buy a awesome Factory Kawasaki Racing Button shirt though to support! Haha

Laguna Seca is epic. I've been 2 years in a row. Won't miss it ever again as long as there is a wsbk or motogp race there

Nice! Yeah I'm rooting for him as well. He's a very cool athlete and was the only rider to take a few moments after the press conference to greet his fans 2 years ago. I even got a quick picture with him. Good dude. Hope he figures out the tires this year. I'd like to see him win again.

I can't find a clear explanation of The SBK video pass pricing structure. It shows 7.49 Euro 'monthly' but also references 9.95 Euro 'offseason'. Are there several months grouped as the 'offseason', (possibly Nov, Dec, & Jan). Then the monthly rate applies to the remaining 9 months of the year?

Basically I am trying to determine what the annual price for this coverage.

Thanks

They are only offering those subscriptions at the moment. Once it gets closer to the beginning of the season I'm sure they will post the yearly subscription price.

How you figure the R1M will give the new 10 problems, they not even running in WSBK! I actually see another repeat in the works with the 10 dominating AGAIN!

I def agree with you somewhat on Nicky tho. Bike is too old, underpowered, and will only do well on tight tracks due to the handling. People be sleeping on the CBR's handling traits, most easiet out the bunch to set up and get right, so I really dont want to hear any excuses from Nick there, but being down on power/mph, is going to make him frustrated AGAIN.

If Nick places good in any kind of way, I guarantee that Honda will get off the fence and re-do the CBR line to make it more competitive. Expect a big price jump to compensate for incorporating all the catch up technology they'll be putting on it.
2017 will have a NEW Honda just cuz of Nicky (if he stays in the running).

Dude you need to catch up...

Pata Honda switched to Yamaha for 2016...

Guintolli and Lowes have already tested it.... Twice

Hayden was fastest at the last test...

The R1 has had a full season of development in WSTK,BSB and European series, while the ZX10 is a new platform, so it stands to reason that the ZX10 might not be dominate like last year straight out the box...
