99 percent or 99.9% or 99.99% is better than 110% over the 17 races. or is it 16? So who will be fast & consistently finish, top four in in the running for c'ship. a rider & team who can get results in this new category, no data from previous years, no cassette gearboxes, significantly different to any other class should be the place to find out who can set up a bike, make the most of the machine that you got & ride the wheels off the thing :)
Morgue & andrew MZ, Germany, was a major part of the change from four strokes dominating in Gps Ernst Degner, Japan, Two strokes took over smaller classes first, Ago won first 2stroke 500cc c"ship in 1976 from memory. Now MZ is back racing & process..

Have they got a custom built chassis now?
Last I heared they were running a modified standard CBR600 chassis, essentially the Stiggy rolling chassis from last year. Be funny if they still were and it turned out to be the best solution on the grid.

... Now the process is going backwards fourstroke tractors taking over from sleek lightweight two stroke real racebikes usurping the big class first, then the middleweights. How long till the 125s are killed off?
So where is the glory? in the past, yes & in the future.
Go Antman best of luck Westy.
Who? Toni Elias, Alex de Angelis, Westy. Maybes could be Tomas Luthi, Robi Rolfo, Scott Redding, Mike de Meglio, Julian Simon, Maybe Corsi, Fonsi, Stefn Bradl, Takahashi, very hard to even guess.
How long until the 1st race starts!

Good luck Westy you deserve it.
Guys, is it just me or is that a CBR 600 he is riding, even the swingarm looks standard but just has the MZ sticker on it?

This CBR engine will be faster than the nail 600 he was on last year thats for sure. This will be excellent for Westy, for once he won't have an engine thats way down on power compared to the top teams.
