First round of the WSBK is at Phillip Island this coming weekend.

Good teams representing Aprillia, Kawasaki, Honda, Ducati, Suzuki, BMW, MV & Buell.

A few local wildcards but no season regulars from OZ.

Should be good racing as usual.

I missed it and was going off what was available on TenPlay and I just checked out the Bayliss Classic feature as they've updated to the current ep on TenPlay.

They interviewed Troy on RPM on Sunday but the Bayliss Classic report is on next weeks edition.



What time were you watching? The one with Troy on there was the previous week, whilst this week's was shown at 4pm on Sunday, which had the report from Old Bar. If you've missed it, it'll be shown several times throughout the week anyway.

Not to mention Wagner being top-10 in WSS all weekend & he and Scott coming home in the points.



Two wildcards in WSBK is hardly heaps...

Time was when all the front-running Australian Superbike Championship regulars would enter the WSBK round, and mix it with the front runners, and a few times beat them.

Mick Doohan won as a wildcard at the Oran Park WSBK round and it helped him get to 500cc the next year, Peter Goddard & Anthony Gobert won as wildcards, Josh Brookes won WSS as a wildcard, Troy Bayliss got a pair of 5ths in 1997 on his Australian Suzuki which put him on the radar.

Its not just the Australian round that lacks wildcards these days though, the control tyre being the main sticking point preventing locals entering WSBK events (Britain aside as they run Pirelli's too, but BSB teams don't enter the British WSBK round in the numbers they used too)....

PI WSB this year was some of the best races in years, probably since the mid-2000s

All that was missing was the local wildcards!

Comparatively small I guess. Stupidly, I haven't even been to the Troy Bayliss Classic, despite the fact it's literally a ten minute drive from my house.


Had the chance to work at the Classic earlier this year as well as the Moto Expo's in Brisbane and Melbourne and flat track event at the WSBK at PI.

Taree was my first exposure to oil based flat track racing and it was a great event.

The Former & Current "Pro's" are there for the fun of it and to try to beat the other guys for the tish stir value, you know the racing is close when your standing on the inside of a corner and they're all laughing as they race past and one of them cant change gear because the other has his foot in the way on purpose

Here's what you missed. https://youtu.be/sYydDOfuKJs



Clearly I'm stupid. I'll travel hours out of town for motorsport, but when there's one in my own town, I'm an idiot and don't go. I'll have to go next time, and might even get to see you there.

I filmed all of R1 from Siberia :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoLgP6eQQlI

So I mashed up about 6 laps that weren't that shakey and uploaded them!

Next time I a) won't zoom in to max zoom or b) bite the bullet and get a tripod! Either way, the ones in the video I feel are pretty nice! Seriously unreal spot to watch a bike!!

My first trip to the Island and my first WSBK experience - I'll be back for Moto GP :) and then every year thereafter for both!

ps. A reason I did this? There's like...NO good footage of WSBK or MotoGP - thought I'd try and get some!
Give it a like so the world has a better chance of seeing it! (I'm begging for likes here...)

That aint no small event let me tell you

Bayliss has moved towards event promotion.

His company not only organises the Troy Bayliss Classic at Taree (raises funds for his local club) but also the Motorcycle Expo's (Moto Expo) held at Sydney later this year and at Brisbane & Melbourne last year as well as back there next year.

They've also removed the SuperX track up at Lukey Heights at PI and built a flat track at which he's running a "demonstration event" during the two Bike GP meetings, I say "Demonstration event" as having seen these guys race it gets pretty wild and willing at times.

I note Troy Bayliss rode again last weekend and didn't too badly. He did well to qualify in the top 10 for the race and was within a couple of tenths of his team-mate. Is a permanent move on the cards?



Bayliss was only ever confirmed for the first two rounds as a super sub given how much development work he has done for Ducati.
