WSBK - WSBK Qatar: Biaggi, the return of vengeance? -

Max Biaggi is doing a private practice session with Aprilia on Tuesday. In their sights: the grand finale of the 2015 World Superbike season, scheduled in Qatar on October 18! Who does MNC get this information from? ? From a certain Jonathan Rea…

Invited to the 2015 World Superbike events since then), Max Biaggi has regained a taste for competition. After stepping onto the podium in Round 1 in Malaysia despite an ankle injury (read more), the 44-year-old Italian rider had to retire from Round 2 in Turn 1.

Undoubtedly dissatisfied by this "der des ders", the Roman Emperor would have obtained a new wild card to participate in the final of the World Superbike 2015 which will be contested at night on the circuit of Losail, on October 18th. This scoop remains to be confirmed, but does not however come from just anyone since it comes to us from Jonathan Rea himself !

Learning that Max, in addition to tirelessly continuing his jogging and other indoor sports sessions, was going to get back on his official Aprilia for a private test in Misano (today), Johnny cracked a friendly and informative tweet…

"Stop it man! Please stop training, you will be too fast in Qatar !", launches a falsely worried Jonathan Rea: from this Sunday in Jerez, the n ° 65 of Kawasaki should indeed be titled. He only has six more points to score to cap the world crown, in other words, a simple formality for a driver who has not come down from the podium this season !

The arrival of Max Biaggi in Qatar cannot therefore sow trouble in the projects of the ruthless JR. It will not be able to penalize the plans of the Greens in general any more, because Kawasaki is almost guaranteed to obtain its first "constructor" title in World Superbike (475 points for Kawa, 363 for Ducati and 299 for Aprilia).

By taking part in the last two rounds of the year, however, the RSV4 n ° 3 could momentarily eclipse the successes of Rea and Kawasaki. As a reminder, the performance of Noale’s Superbike on the Qatari track – in its long straight in particular – was nothing short of astounding last year..

MNC readers will remember that it was thanks to the tremendous health of the Aprilia V4 that Sylvain Guintoli was able to finish his superb 2014 season at the top of the rankings, narrowly surpassing champion Tom Sykes and his ZX-10R (read our).

Facing Leon Haslam and Jordi Torres, the two pilots of the Aprilia Red Devils team, the Kawasaki officials will already have a hard time. Against Max Biaggi, the fight would be even harder: the six-time world champion won his very first WSBK race on this track in 2007 … To compete, the Ninjas will have to prepare their ZX-10R well. Or maybe to hire some H2R ?!
