Biaggi has a pretty decent record here, fancy him to go well.
For an outsider, Fabrizio might get in the reckoning.

wont be prices until late thursday or friday imo Cry

silverstone only makes things worse Devil
Report Zazu July 7, 2011 4:27 PM BST
i know theres a lot of positives but biaggi 10/11 [smiley:crazy]

Are the hills and straight really enough to make checa 11/4? Shocked

And a chance of rain on Sunday make Max a little skinny!
Report Pounf July 7, 2011 11:07 PM BST
There`s a fair chance of rain on Sunday apparently.
Report Pounf July 7, 2011 11:09 PM BST
There hasnt been a wet Superbike race yet this year, yet the Moto GP seem to have rain clouds nearly every week.
Report Zazu July 8, 2011 7:25 AM BST
what weather forecasts are you looking at?

ones i usually use are saying chance of thunderstorms but eurometeo reckons it'll be pretty good weather. At 30 degrees a bit of rain will dry out rapidly

id rather take melandri at 4/1 or checa at 11/4 than biaggi at such a price Confused

laverty into 10s. says he's sorted problems but id much rather have fabrizio at 14/1. always goes well here and just off the podium at aragaon. can i bring myself to back the useless knucklehead [:p]

lowes at 33/1 Shocked
He's never tested the bike but what a story that would be Cool
Report Pounf July 8, 2011 10:06 AM BST
I look at a few, just google brno weather and the one I usually use, says 60% chance of rain. But that is for the whole day, so its not an exact thing.

I suppose theres still only 3-65 with prices. Cant see what bookies have against WSB.
Report Zazu July 8, 2011 10:44 AM BST
paddys have some up as well. pretty similar to 356 but slightly bigger on checa and melandri
I cant get anything on with them anyway Devil

Was about to back fabrizio but got the times messed up and though fp1 was at 11.30 UK time - session just started Cry

i use a few weather sites as well. i find eurometeo to be the best but dont think any of the are very reliable tbh

he's not been is sp3 all season so i might wait to sunday now Mischief

I know its early days...but 20 mins left Fabrizio top of the pile...I didnt back him either Cry

Biaggi goes fastest, from Fabrizio and Checa, Vermeulen not gone out, not that that affects anything!
Report Pounf July 8, 2011 11:18 AM BST
Vermeulen not completed a lap that should have said. Checa now fastest. Toseland down amongst the dead men, he should  really think about whether its worth the risk now
Report Pounf July 8, 2011 11:41 AM BST
Smrz -  Biaggi -  Melandri -  Fabrizio.... Checa 7th
Crashes for Vermeulen, Berger, Lascorz, all riders supposed to be ok

Am sticking with original post.
Report Zazu July 8, 2011 11:45 AM BST
session finished

smrz, biaggi, melandri, fabrizio....checa p7 

I always like the times with 10mins to go ie before the banzai stuff
Haslam, checa and biaggi all very fast. (dont think checa improved time in later stages)

A ducati fastest but checa nearly a second down, biaggi and melandri straight on the pace and fabrizio there or thereabouts. Its only fist session but im definitely waiting till sunday before getting involved Laugh

Zaz, think theres only me and you bothered !
Report Zazu July 8, 2011 12:47 PM BST
usually its just me rambling [smiley:crazy]

after looking at the analysis fabrizio looks truely uninspiring
dont know whos running what programs but id go with something like.... 6/4 biaggi, 5/2 melandri and checa, 10/1 bar
Report Pounf July 8, 2011 12:55 PM BST
I believe Lanzi could be replacing Toseland for the rest of the weekend..again not that ot affects the betting.
Report Zazu July 8, 2011 4:55 PM BST
just backed checa at 2/1 Sad

did a stint of mid 59's

melandri did a stint of high 59's and biaggi struggled to break 2 mins

Obviously i dont know what each rider focused on and biaggi is happy showing up just on sunday, but ducati 1-2 suggests its not struggling round here

bet356 now make him fav and are a little bit shorter every time i look Shocked

checa did 7 laps that were faster than biaggis fastest (well 6 and 1 a couple of hundreths slower)

Ideal time he's 1/2 second clear of everyone (8/10ths clear of biaggi) topping 4 of the sectors so clearly not losing out on the hill/straight to much which is the main thing.

Checa quotes play down his dominance and mentions tyres but as a biaggi backer id want him to be in the ball park. Still plenty of time to find a solution and he might be sandbagging but he didnt do that at misano or aragon so i actually see melandri as a bigger danger

was tempted by Smrz at 6/1 for pole but now he's been cut a little to 4/1. more than capable of going quickly on 1 lap and surely he's going to be wild at home. 

all weather sites are saying a few mm of rain but high temperatures.

biaggi - melandri - checa - laverty

biaggi a few tenths up but should be some good racing tomorrow Cool

Cant see anybody challenng the top 4 really.

Melandri e/w might be my bet now

PPowerr have Troy Corser in the betting at 14/1 [smiley:crazy]
Report Zazu July 9, 2011 8:20 PM BST
riders all mentioning rain forecasted for tomorrow.

melandri was awesome in motogp in mixed conditions but hasnt shown anything in WSBK. sykes could well be involved if its torrential Shocked

in the dry, fabrizio reckons he can run with the leaders -  wouldnt surprise me if he did.
Report Zazu July 10, 2011 9:42 AM BST

I dont watch WSBK support races very often but whenever I do theres a major crash on the warm up lap or something else ridiculus happening [smiley:crazy]
Report Pounf July 10, 2011 10:16 AM BST
Dry and hot, weather forecasts way out as usual.

Think it`ll be close, Checa fastest in Warm Up, which I usually find is a pretty good indicator.

The usual suspects to fight it out I reckon
Report Zazu July 10, 2011 10:27 AM BST
i dont usually pay much attention to warm up but checa did 5laps faster than biaggis best and his stint of low 2's, was about 3/10ths faster than anyone else Cool

biaggi might well blitz everyone but he's been a very, very short price all weekend based on facts imo Confused
Report Zazu July 10, 2011 11:44 AM BST
great race then no one did anything on the last lap Shocked

checa super cautious when biaggi ran wide Devil

no interviews - instead treated to womens football Cry
Report Pounf July 10, 2011 12:15 PM BST
Dont know who to back in Race 2, difficult to split the top 3, Melandri won when his tyres were looking poor, Biaggi looks fastest but keeps running wide, Checa may have worn his tyres out catching them, he caught them quite quickly but then for some reason almost seemed contented with 3rd ??.
Fabrizio hoping for a collision for a podium.

Cant think who`s most likely to improve from Race 1 to Race 2, Checas gone 3rd - 1st twice this season, Biaggi went 2nd - 1st last time out.

Time to flip  a coin !
Report Zazu July 10, 2011 12:28 PM BST
6/4, 7/4, and 15/8 from 365

dont think checa was able to pass and stay ahead but seemed more than content with 3rd Cry

fancy biaggi for race 2 but not at 6/4. he seemed to make a lot of mistakes, would have liked an interview Devil
Report Pounf July 10, 2011 12:32 PM BST

probably highly immoral
Report Pounf July 10, 2011 3:04 PM BST
I just think its incompetent, they werent in their list in Race 1, somebody hasnt clicked to remove them and a YTS trainee has guessed that because he couldnt see their names in Race 1 they must have been well tailed off and thus 500/1...thats my theory
Report Zazu July 10, 2011 3:12 PM BST
biaggi wins

next up silverstone Cool
cant see anything other than biaggi vs melandri there
