World Superbike Championship Review 2006
This official review is packed with cat-and-mouse battles for the lead, fairing to fairing, and wheel to wheel as brave Brit James Toseland waged a determined campaign to region the title he took in 2004. Bayliss had other ideas though, and started the season in dominant form, leading the points table after the first 5 rounds with seven consecutive wins and consistent podium results. Eventually he netted the championship at Imola and with one round to spare, but the other placings were still up for grabs when the season reached its climax at Magny Cours. With just two points separating Toseland and Haga it was always going to be a white-hot furnace of a finale, and the top runners didn’t disappoint! Elsewhere in the Championship points table, Frankie Chile completed his final season in a fiercely competitive year where no fewer than eight riders won at least one race. Chris “the Stalker” Walker made it two Brits in the top 10 as Kawasaki’s best placed rider, while reigning Champion Corser could only manage a fourth place podium position. Enjoy four hours of the best highlights from the premier league for production bikes. Round by round with informed pacy commentary from Jonathan Green, in-depth interviews, statistics and super-sharp multi-angle on-board cameras. Yours to enjoy time and again!
Specification: World Superbike Championship Review 2006
D. Larsen –
I have several other years of the SBK series’ review and this was the worst. Comparing the production values from the ’01 to this year: No rider interviews, no production bike reviews (steve parrish) and (this was the worst) no on-board camera footage; despite the fact the packaging and Duke Video say otherwise. The racing action is reasonably good and the commentating is reasonably good. In summary, a copy of what you’d see on TV with the on-board camera footage subtracted. Big let down for the price they’re asking.
this is a great dvd the sums up the 2006 year of the world superbike, but I thought it was lacking a little. After watching the 2006 reviews of the AMA Superbike and the Motogp, I was equally excited to watch the 2006 sbk.
It’s a good review; however, it’s choppy compared to the ama and motogp reviews. the dvd follow the race year through, but with more clips of the races…and not as much of summarys with commentary….basically, it’s like someone just through all the 2006 races on the cutting board and chopped them all down to size.
Still worth watching, but you might end up skipping through as you’ll find it a little hard to keep your attention. I would recommend the 2006motogp review 1st, the 2006 AMA superbike review 2nd, the 2006 formula 1 review 3rd and the 2006 world superbike review 4th.
