(cafetheology.org) – In the past few years the regulations in the Superbike World Championship have always been series. The list of parts, which can not be changed for the use of the race, grows from year to year. Ex-World Champion Tom Sykes is clearly too far. The Brits are convinced that the series – like regulations destroy the charm of the series and equality of opportunity. "We have less freedom, the machines have to share a lot of things with the roadblocks, the innards correspond to the series, which was not so before Weight of the engine shops higher, "notes Sykes in conversation with 'cafetheology.org'. "I had to adjust my driving style, I have the feeling of not being able to get the maximum, which is really a pity, of course I do my best," he emphasizes.Sykes is convinced that the current imbalance is due to the rules: "I I think it's a great time, Kawasaki was strong and struggled against Aprilia, Ducati, BMW and also the Honda was on strike, and the new rules made the championship what it is now, "the Kawasaki pilot scolds. Superbikes too close to the MotoGP?

What's the difference between the MotoGP and the WSBK too low? "There is a clear border between the Superbike World Championship and the MotoGP, and our lap times were quite good for a championship close to the series, I can not understand the reason why the rules had to be changed, was the devastation of the championship, "he says," there are two dominant manufacturers, but these two manufacturers are one way or the other because they not only put a lot of effort and money into the motorcycles but also the drivers "says Sykes, adding," I think the championship will be more exciting with the rules of 2012 or 2013 when the teams could work better with their machines. "In the future, the regulations will be even more advanced. Carmelo Ezpeleta, the CEO of Carmelo, has already announced his plans for a stick rule. "It's the Superbike World Championship, but they want to make it a Superstock championship, and if they continue to do so, there's not much more to do," Sykes says, wondering, "Why do we have to get so close to the Superstock series? , if it was in the past always that the Superbikes were always a piece from the production machines? "Sykes remembers the" good times "

"I remember the time when Troy Bayliss and Colin Edwards were fighting, I looked at the machines from then on, probably more advanced than what we are now using," the Kawasaki factory spokesman criticizes. "It's unbelievable, I do not understand why we need to get rid of this philosophy in 2017." Kawasaki team colleague Jonathan Rea made headlines in November 2016 as he drove faster at the Jerez test than the assembled MotoGP pilots. "We are very close to the days of the MotoGP, obviously it does not please the organizers, so they want a bigger and clearer one Difference, "he teases in the direction of Dorna.
