Those worlds being both the two and four wheeled variants! This weekend the World Super Bike series was in my home country and the two wheelers scorched the payments of the infamous Monza race track. Although it was a Ducati that was ultimately victorious, hey they WERE in Italy (!),  Honda rider Ryuichi Kiyonari brilliantly rode his Ten Kate Honda CBR1000RR to double thrid place finishes and kept Honda agressivley in the running for the manufactures title in a strong third place after 5 of 14 races. Racing action included the series champ running out of fuel mere yards before the checkered flag and an upclose introduction of a bird to the front of a bike! Also on the track the Supersport Series had a Honda in 4th place, the Super Stock 1000 Series saw Honda come in 6th and the Super Stock 600 finished the day with a Honda in 5th. Honda continues to be the most consistant top finishing builder in the world. The complete Super Bike results can be seen over at SBK online. Last weekend the Moto GP Series was in Spain and after leading for over half the race Dani Pedrose finished a strong race witha very hard fought second. Of course the four wheeled fans are all getting ready for the mother of all races, nice way to include Mother on Mothers day huh (!), the Indy 500 which is next weekend. Helio Castroneves once again showed his strength behind the wheel with a pole qualifying run averaging 224.86, um thats Miles Per Hour!! Danika rounds out the top ten with her awesome 10th place run, the remaining places of the 33 car field will be set this week. Raceday is this Sunday May 24th. Keep up with Indy 500 stats here.
