WSB?

Never realised they had yet to win a race !   I thought they were going to take the WSB by storm, but after the first two or three seasons - never kept up with results.

So - finally got their act together, or a fluke?

It was a wet (ish) race, but blimey compared to what else went with the two main protagonist’s was a side show really, but BM have spent a great deal of money with not a great deal to show for it.

And to think they nearly got it onto MotoGP as a 990cc before it went to 800cc. I think Jeremy McWilliams was their test rider back then?

There was lots of talk yesterday about the Bosch software on the BM’s and it has along way to go, And because BM do not run a Moto GP team there’s zero feed back from a far more complex series, but certainly with the two riders they have for next year BM will have no excuses.

Just checked who the last BMW winner was and it was Chaz Davies - I don't even remember him riding a BMW? Would have sworn it was Marco Melandri.

I’m sure the commentators said 2015 but heaven knows who that was, can’t wait to see Reading on the bike cuz if it isn’t up scratch he’ll soon tell e’m.
