Why this year's Superbike World Championship is more exciting than MotoGP

Marc Marquez won the United States Grand Prix on Sunday. He was in control from start to finish. It may be in the nature of the Circuit of the Americas, but the circuit in the heart of Texas has not produced the best MotoGP races in recent years. A struggle between Jack Miller and Joanne Meyer put some pepper on the tail of the race, but other than that it wasn’t the race that managed to attract many spectators. That was different in the Moto3 class, where “us” as the motorsport world once again survived a giant drama. Deniz Unko veered slightly off his streak on a long straight line and brought down Jeremy Alcoba. Andrea Mineo and Pedro Acosta flew over her at full speed, but they were miraculously unharmed. It’s another incident in a truly dramatic year for the Moto3 class and a time for some real action. The huge comment Onko received for a seemingly innocent act is just right. After years of lukewarm rule, the hosts are finally ready to put an end to dangerous acts.

Back in MotoGP, the title fight has been in the pipeline for quite some time now. Just like the US Grand Prix, the title race lacks a little pepper. Fabio Quartararo has made the fewest mistakes this season and is doing exceptionally well, there’s no arguing it. However, no one put up a serious resistance. Johann Zarco looked like he was at the start of the current season, but the Frenchman succumbed to the pressure. Still not fit enough to be fast on any track and challenge the young goalkeeper, Francesco Bagnaia’s season got off to a late start. While the materials in MotoGP have never been so close together, this year it has shown time and time again that this doesn’t necessarily make the championship better or more exciting. It’s hard to say why the MotoGP championship doesn’t want to be exciting this year, but that might just be an asset for Quartararo.

WSBK is in dire need of the Ria-Razgatlioglu rivalry

The MotoGP World Championship now has the championship that has been longed for for years and which was also sorely needed for the championship’s emergence. Jonathan Rea is an established name in the tournament. He dominated the sport with six consecutive world titles, but that dominance did not benefit the motorcycle production class. Honda, Yamaha and Ducati riders have managed to beat the occasional Ria in recent years, whose consistent performance has been the perfect reference for everything and everyone, but it was also hard to beat. The man Yamaha has brought to challenge RIA is Toprak Razgatlioglu. The promising Turkish driver took some time, but he broke the code to rock the world champion. Because of this, it has become the season for licking your fingers.

At the end of an intense triathlon with consecutive weekends of racing in Barcelona, ​​Jerez and Portimao, we can only conclude that the WSBK Championship has exceeded all expectations this season. Every weekend, the two men competed against each other and other tastemakers, such as Scott Redding, could regularly join the duel. Dramatic moments follow each other in quick succession, and psychological warfare is in full swing. After eleven racing weekends this season, the numbers speak for themselves, Rhea and Razgatlioglu are balanced in terms of wins, podiums and retirement.

There are two more racing holidays on the schedule this season, the first of which will be completed next weekend in Argentina. Like MotoGP, the World Superbike Championship will cross the Atlantic for the first time since the pandemic. As MotoGP returns to Europe, the Superbike World Championship travels to Indonesia for the final round of the Grand Final. Razgatlioglu has 24 points in the tournament, but a maximum of 62 points can be earned at the end of the week. So there is still a lot at stake. Will the World Superbike Championship finally have a new champion or will the lone ruler pass his greatest test?
