THE WSBK PIT REPORT: Marvellous machinery, I visited the majority of 'WSBK' race team pits, chatted to many riders and pit crews, absolutely top people. The quality of engineering, preparation and paintwork, truly excellent. I also visited some of the 'WSBK Supersport' and 'Australian Historics Challenge' pits.

THE BMW MOTORRAD 'TROY CORSER-LEON HASLAM' PIT GARAGES: Davide Tardozzi is gone, BMW have a refreshed management structure. The motorcycles and general engineering works look very professional. All they need now is a win to focus their mindset on winning the overall Championship!

THE BMW ITALIA 'JAMES TOSELAND -  AYRTON BADOVINI' PIT GARAGES: The 'satellite team' if you will, the BMW MOTORRAD ITALIA team appear to have similar machinery to the BMW MOTORRAD MOTORSPORT 'factory' team. I had a quick chat with James Toseland and to my amazement he stated the Factory Team came knocking on the Italia Team door, enquiring about anything they had found to improve the setup for Phillip Island, I expected the enquiring would have been the other way around!
