F#$% Dorna

So instead of making improving MotoGP they'll just water down WSBK instead: http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2013/Jan/130104a.htm

F'n douchebags! Whomever is making the calls at Dorna is obviously out of creative ideas for improving the GP product, and can only make it seem relatively better by diluting a great series that's taking viewers away from GP.

Ruining the best racing series on the planet.

This is why Biaggi quit IMO.

So no Superstock in 1K or 600? - Not like we ever really got to see those races on TV anyway - Are they changing any rules to what you can do to the 1K and 600 motors in Superbike and Supersport?

Yes, the new Superbikes are going to be closer to super stock bikes.

They neutered the series.

Speed airs both SBK Races on said Sat or Sun and usually the SS race on Tues - It's like GP with the Main & Moto2 Race then Moto3 on the following Tues

Wouldnt worry too much about Speed. Doubt they will show much this year anyways.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

I saw the motogp, moto 2 and 3 races and caught a couple of AMA races earlier last season, but don't remember any wsbk.... Then again, when I got the motogp video pass during the second season, I kinda stopped watching them on speed channel
