Day 1 times from Aragon. Rain on Sunday meant a late start today as teams waited for track conditions to improve. Dry and sunny the rest of the day.

These times come from WorldSBK.com. Not sure why they didn't include a time for WSS Champ Locatelli as he rode most of the afternoon.

1.) Chaz Davies (Team GoEleven) 1’49.878s, 63 laps
2.) Michael Ruben Rinaldi (Aruba.It Racing – Ducati) 1’49.947s, 70 laps
3.) Scott Redding (Aruba.It Racing – Ducati) 1’49.989s, 64 laps
4.) Garrett Gerloff (GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team) 1’50.527s, 52 laps
5.) Tito Rabat (Barni Racing Team) 1’50.740s, 91 laps
6.) Andrea Locatelli (Pata Yamaha with BRIXX WorldSBK), 51 laps
7.) Axel Bassani (Motocorsa Racing), 1’51.482s, 68 laps
8.) Kohta Nozane (GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team) 1’51.711s, 60 laps
9.) Christophe Ponsson (Alstare Yamaha), 1’53.348s, 50 laps
10.) Niccolo Canepa (Pata Yamaha with BRIXX WorldSBK), 1’53.685s, 36 laps

Kawasaki is spending decent money in WSBK and must feel they are getting sufficient ROI by focusing on production racing.
At the club racing level, ZX10's are the NEW R6. I say they're doing OK.

Day 2 times from Aragon. Hard to tell what any of this means without Kawasaki, Honda and BMW present. Gerloff getting close to the Ducatis is a positive at this track. Waiting for the interviews to see who did race simulations.



1.) Scott Redding (Aruba.It Racing – Ducati) 1’48.780, 80 laps
2.) Michael Ruben Rinaldi (Aruba.It Racing – Ducati) 1’49.205s, 85 laps
3.) Garrett Gerloff (GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team) 1’49.439s, 73 laps
4.) Chaz Davies (Team GoEleven) 1’49.775s, 75 laps
5.) Andrea Locatelli (Pata Yamaha with BRIXX WorldSBK) 1’50.257s, 66 laps
6.) Tito Rabat (Barni Racing Team) 1’50.518s, 97 laps
7.) Axel Bassani (Motocorsa Racing) 1’51.146s, 80 laps

WSBK schedule updated (again) as Estoril is moved back up to the early part of the calendar. Back-to-Back rounds kick off the season.

Yamaha and Kawasaki WSBK teams are testing again at Aragon today and tomorrow (April 21-22).


In other news, former champion Randy Krumenacher is back on a Yamaha to face to the stacked WSS field in 2021. Great looking bike.

Its a weekday ending in "y" so that means there is a new 2021 WSBK schedule. The chill championship will visit the Autodrom Most in the Czech Republic August 6-8. The 4.212 km (approx.2.6 miles) circuit has 21 turns (14 right, 7 left) with the longest straight being 792 meters. Looks fun. I've read this track is close to Prague.

Some of those gravel traps are deeper than their pit building, like T15 and T20 which are high speed entries. T13 will probably get air fence.

WSBK is allowed to race on tracks that are graded lower than GP - B instead of A. I bet this one is B because of facilities, but prob not track safety.

The track looks fun in an anti-Tilke way and there might be some good passing zones. I think Id enjoy racing it.

Looks like there are some decent elevation changes, too. Those fast sweepers behind the paddock look to be higher than the front straight which means the last two turns could be downhill. Same for the the chicane at the end of the front straight and the first few turns.
