WSBK 08 Monza results

The first race at Monza saw Neukirchner score his first career win in WSBK with a .058 second lead over Haga, while Bayliss had started the race with a storm, he could only finish third, .672 second behind Neukirchne.

The second race at Monza was to be a huge disappointment for the championship leader, Troy Bayliss as he had to retire due to oil leak in his Ducati. Charlos Checca who is currently at the second place in the championship running, suffered a similar fate and had to retire.

The real action though was for the first place as Neukirchner and Haga swapped places continuously, though in the end Haga managed to win the race, 0.009 seconds ahead of the Neukirchner.
