Gerloff has been near the top all day and currently is quickest.

Here are his leathers for 2021.

How the other half lives. Tour of the Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) World Superbike Provec Racing shop just outside Barcelona. Beautiful facility. Doesn't look like they have any budget concerns.

Provec Racing has been the team contracted to run the Kawasaki WSBK effort for several years. They also field Ana Carrasco in Supersport300.

Final times from Day 2.

Gerloff was fast all day. Rea threw in a flyer at the end of the day. No mention yet if Rea was using a Q tire or not. Folger is the fastest of BMW riders. Toprak tested positive for COVID-19 this morning and had leave the track and head to isolation. Bautista rode only six laps on day 2 as he is still very sore from a fall while doing some MX training.

anyone here with a WorldSBK video pass that's willing to trade access with my MotoGP Video Pass?

as far as I know, you can have multiple accounts accessing the MotoGP account...

If you do, HMU...

You might have better luck asking in GP threads as they get a lot more traffic.

With Kawasaki’s decade of success in WSBK and the financial reasons to leave of ‘08/‘09 being long ago, does anyone think they’ll ever return to MotoGP with their own “prototype” bikes with the ZX10 engine?

Just not worth the $40-50M dollar price tag?

Factory and private WSBK teams from Ducati and Yamaha will be testing at Aragon Monday and Tuesday (April 12-13). Toprak Razgatlioglu had withdrawn from the second day of the Barcelona test due to a positive COVID-19 test. He has no symptoms and is feeling 100% but tested positive again over the weekend so the Turkish star will remain quarantined in a Barcelona apartment while Niccoḷ Canepa fill in on the Factory Yamaha.

Aragon was the worst track for Yamaha last year so this test is vital. Sounds like Gerloff will be carrying a lot of weight to improve the R1's results in 2021.

All the MotoGP teams just signed new agreements with Dorna for (I think) five more years starting in 2022. Apparently Kawasaki wasn't interested because this would have been the time to make the move.

Kawasaki is spending decent money in WSBK and must feel they are getting sufficient ROI by focusing on production racing.
