2014 Laguna Seca World Superbike FP4 Results: Sykes Beats Ducatis

Tom Sykes puts himself at the top of the most likely to get pole position with a blistering 1'23.097 ahead of the Ducatis of Davide Giugliano and Chaz Davies. On a track where outright top speed and power aren't necessary to do well, as can be seen by the top speeds below, Sykes still shows that on a single lap, he's at the top of the pile.

As i said earlier, this is

As i said earlier, this is going to be Kawasakis race to loose. Their mid-range acceleration is the most potent weapon of this track. Qualifying should go slightly better for the Aprilias.

EBR's lost in the desert

There goes the "lack of track knowledge" excuse for the embarrassing EBR pace.
