Ducati 1199 Panigale Gets Clean Slate for Weight in WSBK | asphaltandrubber.com

Ducati 1199 Panigale Gets Clean Slate for Weight in WSBK | asphaltandrubber.com | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

World Superbike is expected to announce after the Magny-Cours round next week that the Ducati 1199 Panigale will not incur the same 6kg weight ballast penalty as the current Ducati 1098R Superbike. A part of WSBK’s fluidic formula for Superbike racing, World Superbike rules allow for the air intake to be restricted and weight ballast to be added to twin-cylinder motorcycles on an prescribed basis, to compensate for the 200cc displacement capacity advantage the twins have over the four-cylinder machines.

CHECA RETURNS TO THE PODIUM AT PORTIMAO

CHECA RETURNS TO THE PODIUM AT PORTIMAO | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Another complicated race day for the Althea Racing team today at the ‘Autodromo Internacional do Algarve’.

In race 1 Carlos Checa rode a great race to take his first podium since Brno while Davide Giugliano was robbed of his chance to do well after a collision early on in the race forced him to retire. In the second of the day’s races Giugliano was once again unlucky, suffering from presumed tyre problems while Checa was able to bounce back after a technical issue in the early stages to cross the line fifth.
After two hot and sunny days the Superbike paddock awoke to heavy rain and poor visibility on the Portimao track. After only a fifteen minute warm-up, the riders had little time to prepare for racing in these conditions.

Bridgepoint Announces MotoGP And World Superbike Series To Be "Brought Together" | MotoMatters.com

Bridgepoint, the venture capital organization has today announced that it has brought MotoGP and World Superbike, the two motorcycle racing series it owns, under a single umbrella organization. The reorganization will see Dorna Sports become the parent organization for both series, though Infront will operate as an independent entity and continue to organize World Superbike under its own banner. Infront has also been named as "marketing advisor and global advisor" for both MotoGP and WSBK.

The implications of this announcement are huge, but not immediately clear. The logic behind the move is impeccable: the two series are spending too much of their time competing against each other instead of working together to promote the sport of motorcycle racing. By combining their marketing efforts, the hope is that both series will be made stronger.

Nicky Hayden confused by Casey Stoner's retiring from MotoGP | autosport.com

Nicky Hayden confused by Casey Stoner's retiring from MotoGP | autosport.com | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
Nicky Hayden has admitted he is confused by his former team-mate Casey Stoner's decision to retire from MotoGP.

Reigning world champion Stoner announced in May that 2012 would be his last season in the sport.

That means he will walk away at the age of 27, after just seven years in MotoGP - although in that time he has won two titles and 37 races to date.

Poll: Should every motorcyclist own a Ducati at some point? MCN

Poll: Should every motorcyclist own a Ducati at some point? MCN | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
Next week's MCN (out September 26) features the world first test of Ducati's semi-active suspension Multistrada 1200.

This wildly advanced motorcycle provoked an office discussion about Ducatis in general: should every true motorcyclist have owned one at some point? Is it the badge of a pukka enthusiast?
