Ducati’s Chaz Davies continued his impressive streak with another double win at Jerez this weekend (four race wins in a row, now). Behind Davies, the Kawasaki duo of Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes swapped podium positions in each of the two races. Rea leaves Jerez needing only two points to clinch the title at the next round. Nicky Hayden (Honda) rode impressively to fourth position in each race, nearly taking the final podium spot in Race 2.

    Is Ducati going to run a 1600 cc motor starting next year? Maybe a v6 or a v8?
    It is ridiculous how they run those huge motors against the whole world on 1000 cc’s.
    Still crying wolf. Never played on an level field in WSBK, from the series’ inception.

      Same old tired whine.

      From 2003-07, all the WSBK bikes were 1000cc, and Ducati riders won 3 of 5 titles.

      Since they started allowing these “huge” 1200cc twins in 2008, Ducati has only won two rider championships (and 3 manufacturer titles).

      Seems to me they have to formula pretty perfect by now.

      The only thing that isn’t “level” in WSBK is the amount of money and effort some teams put into their race programs. That’s not Ducati’s problem.

        Your reply doesn’t tell the whole picture. Only 2 factories bothered with full backing during 03-04. Ducati and Suzuki. Ducati won pretty much uncontested.

        All teams more or less had factory teams again in 05.

          You’re right, I didn’t go into the whole history of World Superbike, because if someone thinks that engine displacement is the only thing that matters in a racing rulebook, well, there’s not a whole lot you can teach them anyway…

    Nice to see Nicky close the gap on the frontrunners. Hopefully, next year’s machine will allow him to compete for top honors.
