Monza - Wsbk *spoiler Alert*

2008 Race 1
1.Max Neukirchner
2. Noriyuki Haga
3. Troy Bayliss

2008 Race 2
1.Noriyuki Haga
2.Max Neukirchner
3.Ryuichi Kiyonari


Who will it be this year?

Ben "win it or bin it" Spies?
Will Nitro Nori pull out another huge gap in the points?
Will the Pocket Rocket prove again that privateers can dice with the factory boys?
Will Neukirchner's Suzuki be up for the task at this race?
Can Biaggi get back up front on the Ape?



This track favors the 4bangers: they are at WOT for most of the lap.

Monza, the Temple of Speed. Spies will love this track. This is the one he's most looking forward to experiencing. Hopefully, he won't experience the notorious gravel traps.

If he manages to stay on two I could see him taking the double. Iffff only he can figure out how to keep Haga from 2nd to gain some good ground on the points lead...

Course it is a double edged sword as I really want Haga to take the CH. and I am rooting for the TEXAN

Thumbs up WSBK round 5 Monza 2009 **SPOILER THREAD**

Well, this is just like AMA...Instead of Mat and Ben, it's Nori and Ben...Yep, they're the only 2 to win a race in WSBK this year...So much for it being more competitive than GP...Anyhoo...Nori has a 60 point lead, so Ben better quit falling down...


This appears to be a very fast track, so I'm going to say Ducs in place 1, 3, and 4, with Ben in the number 2 spot...

I'm gonna vote for Biaggi, just because I'm growing to like the little bastard. (But I'm not going to put any money on him.)

Your money from previously placed bets is safe in the casino bank. Really.

Hopefully the casino will be reactivated soon so we can resume the betting.

This track is amazing. Construction started back in the early '20s. Sits right in the middle of the city park. Of course, in the old days the cars used the big banking. It's still there, in the woods.

It's in Italy so I expect the Ducati to do well and Haga is riding awesome lately.

V8 Supercars suck
