After Alvaro Bautista put one hand on the WorldSBK title in Argentina, Steve English, Charlie Hiscott, and Gordon Ritchie look back at the racing from San Juan Villicum, and have a very long debate over the merits and disadvantages of introducing minimum combined rider/bike weights. Steve, Charlie, and Gordo dive into whether a weight limit will fix this, finding other ways to penalize racers, and compare WorldSBK with Touring Car championships. They also ask how to make WorldSBK's other riders more competitive.
Then, Steve sits down with Aruba.it Ducati's Michael Ruben Rinaldi for a Renthal Street Session interview.
