The WSBK field took on the French country side, racing at Magny Cours. Tom Sykes took a perfect weekend to be within reach of the WSBK Championship.

The weather wasn’t the best at Magny Cours over the weekend but it produced great racing

It was the perfect weekend for Tom Sykes who took two from two, extending his lead heading into the final round

Sykes ruined the Aprilia show, with Laverty and Guintoli embroiled in their own battle – but for second

With some 70 000+ fans attending the event, Magny Cours was well attended. We agree with this sentiment, also add Imola to that equation

And the WSBK produces good racing, even if some interest is lacking in the series

It wasn’t great for all with Aussie, Mark Atchison turning his Kawasaki into a firey mess

And also a bad day for BMW, officially without a chance at the ’13 crown

Congratulations to Sam Lowes for his WSS title

Time will tell if he made the right decision. I, for one would see the WSBK a bigger drawcard than trying to a MotoGP spot.
