Carlos Checa put his reputation for wild riding behind him to take his first Superbike World Championship in style, holding off the young chargers, old rivals and former MotoGP star Marco Melandri to take the title with a round to spare.
Checa’s stunning rides on the Ducati deserve watching again and again, but there’s even more to this year’s Official Review than the championship chase.
Over two discs we relive action from all 13 rounds – that’s 26 fast and furious races to enjoy again – including every vital pass and spectacular crash. Among the highlights are 250cc World Champion Melandri’s race-winning skills, Eugene Laverty’s stunning rides, including his Monza double, Jonathan Rea’s incredible return from injury and Tom Sykes taking a wonderful maiden victory, and Kawasaki’s first win since 2006.
Reigning champion Max Biaggi had a year to forget, but British teammate Leon Camier stepped up to carry the Aprilia flag in the closing rounds, plus Nori Haga was as entertaining as ever! Incredible action footage recalls the vital highlights of every race of a scintillating Superbike season. This was also the final season for Australian legend Troy Corser and British hero James Toseland, who retired due to injury.
