    Exclamation AMA Superbike vs. MotoGP Bike

    Check out this story from the AMASuperbike.com website:

    http://www.amasuperbike.com/2003-Jan/030103a.htm

    It mentions that there may be Suzuki superbikes and MotoGP bikes at the same track day test. I would love to see the laptimes after this test ... hopefully this happens and the weather is decent. One big thing would be the difference in tires and how they affect lap times. I wonder if Suzuki would provide trap speed results .... hmmmm

    Yea I would like to see the difference, I think that track is a horse power track, so the GP might have a bit of an edge.

    Test times

    All the Suzuki boys practiced in Malaysia in mid-January.
    Mladin and Yates on the GSXR1000 were about 2.8 - 3 seconds off from Roberts and Hopkins.

    And potentially bump out some ever-more-exciting NASCAR racing? The Yankee rednecks would lynch us!
