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)....

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.

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.
