    Might have had just a little competition from the supercross series last year but otherwise I fully agree.

    I've found that I enjoy watching the Moto 2 and Moto 3 races more this year than any of the "premier" series. The racing is closer and more entertaining with passes throughout the races and any one of a number of riders with a chance for the win at the end of every race.

    SPOILER ALERT
    Wow Wow wow, that was some serious racing. I have never seen a race this nuts with the front 13 being such close contenders for the podium, especially the last few laps were out of this world. Even my wife who doesn't know much more beyond "The View" was glued to the TV and actually stopped curling her hair.
    My 18 month old was going "weee weee weee"
    Loved it...will keep it on my DVR for a long long time.
    Too bad Race 2 was replaced by a rerun but from what I have heard we didn't miss much.

    Definately agree with this one. I still watch them all but WSBK doesn't make me yawn. Wish the Moto 2 and Moto3 coverage wasn't as spotty.

    No grip on the paint there Biaggi.

    Re: Silverstone WSBK race 1 = WOW!

    So if the conditions are sketchy why would they not run the Diablo Supercorsa tires? A little tread would have gone a long way.

    Although the lack of grip made the race outstanding to watch. That was some wild action.

    The teams have a limited amount of tire "solutions" they must pick for the weekend. Thy only get a set amount of tires and one they pick their choices they can't go back and get more.

    I had to resist reading this thread until I watched it on the dvr... WOW is right!
    How often is a race filled with non-stop excitement and action like this one was... from start to finish.
    This race had it all, and as many of you have already pointed out... WSBK is the best racing to watch.
