Default World Super Sport cold save the Ducati Cup (WSB) ??

The commentators on the WSB broadcast pointed out that there were more spectators at the Super Sport (600 inline 4s and 748 V-2) race than the WSB race. Why? One word ---Competition!!!

Default Re: KPaul the prophet :)

I have to say that AMA Superbike is nothing like NASCAR. Well, at least not from a machinery stand point. The bikes have the same engine configuration as production, the same wheel drives the race bike as the production, and (I maybe wrong on this) I think that the frame/wheelbase dimensions are the same (at least close) to production. The cars in NASCAR are almost identicle to each other, and the dimensions are not even close to stock. Don't get me wrong I actually like NASCAR, I liked it more 20 years ago, but it is still fun. Anyway that is my $.01. I realize it is not worth two.

Actually CART doesn't allow different brands of engines anymore. It has an exclusive contract with Ford as the sole engine provider of the series.

Default You Gotta Be $hitn Me!

AMA for guys who couldn't make it in the Worlds? WTF? Name another series that has produced as many GP and WSB contenders and champions over the years.

Default Here's what I'd like to see

Full dressers racing and instead of the Goodyear Blimp we'd have Jesse James doing the camera work from his hot air balloon that is launched from his Moster Garage built Geo Tracker. Pay Up Sucker $.

The supersport is much better racing! Maybe they should make the 600 the headline race and relegate the Ducati Cup to support?

The SuperStock is also great racing -- in WSB, the superstocks run up to 1000cc, unlike AMA where it is the GSXR 750 Cup.



Nearly stock (shocks, pipes etc) Ducati, R1, RC51, 954RR, GSXR1000 etc head to head, with no restrictor plates!

"Nearly stock (shocks, pipes etc) Ducati, R1, RC51, 954RR, GSXR1000 etc head to head, with no restrictor plates!" I would love to see that. Talk about diversity.

Default AMA should schedule races in Europe, Austrailia, and Japan like the NFL, NBA and MLB

I agree with you. Look at all the Austrailians like Mladin, Gobert etc. Maybe they should have AMA races overseas. Maybe AMA superbike replaces WSB.
