Thanks for putting a Spoiler on this TechX glad some still read the rules around here.

For those that had your Threads deleted now you know who did it and please don't complain I didn't even give an Infraction like I normally do so beware.

When you think about it....it could have been 4years in a Row if not for some bad luck and mishaps.....What's impressive about Rea though he Took care of business EARLY to make sure there was room for error at the end....this year was a no doubter.....Congrats Rea and Kawasaki

Kawasaki has to be stoked to win the Championship, but also to win the manufacturers title. Great job by both Sykes' and Rea's teams!!

While I agree it's Awesome for Kawasaki to win the Manufacturers Title Kawi deserves as many Trophies it can get but I never gave it much Weight because you need at least 2 Great Riders on the Same bike having a good year......for example when Sykes won his Championship there wasn't anyone else running up front from Kawi and someone else Won the Manu Title.......I remember thinking to self who cares as long as Kawi Won the Main Title.

either way I am sure it means something to some or else they wouldn't have it just trying to not be a hypocrite, I said it before on this forum who cares and just confirming it still doesn't mean much as I see it.

I think that's just it. It shows that with 2 good riders, the machine is more capable than the competition. I don't put as much weight on it as the main title either, but it's cool that it's Kawi's first one. I think it's also exciting that they are gathering data from two guys running at the front now too. If Sykes had a better teammate previously maybe they could have provided better development.

Im sure Tom is a lot happier with Jonny then he was with Loris. Especially after Loris took him out in that one race last year. It probably cost Tom last years championship.

Thanks though Mr. Animal I am always curious about what others think about the Manufactures Trophy.

Good Interview with Rea

WorldSBK < World Champion interview with Jonathan Rea


No Doubt Sykes is a lot happier with this years teammate but I'm really wondering how they will do next year with Gen 5 Bikes.
