The latest episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast is something of a crossover edition. Steve English and David Emmett get together to look ahead to the next batch of tests for the MotoGP and WorldSBK classes.
We start off with a discussion of what the last test at Sepang means for what to look out for at the Qatar MotoGP test this weekend. How will the new Michelin rear tire hold up in the colder, more abrasive conditions at Qatar? Will the cooler air show up anyone's engines as being too aggressive? How much will Marc Marquez' shoulder have improved.
Then we move on to discuss the state of the WorldSBK paddock, and what the Phillip Island test might tell us ahead of the first race. Does the fact that Phillip Island is such a unique track tell us anything about the comparative strength of the bikes? Will the Kawasaki of Jonathan Rea face a stiffer challenge this year? And how will the new Honda fare?
