Seems to be a general concern,this dew factor. Colin,Ben and Valentino have all touted an earlier start.If it's a good idea by their reckoning,it's good enough for me.The last thing I want to see on Sunday are rider's just slipping into the Twighlight Zone through no fault of their's.
Hope the authorities do the smart thing.
Good luck Marco and good racing.

the decision should have already been made.If all the top riders agree it's unsafe, it's unsafe. It's hard to fathom the delay unless it's about money.

Good luck Simo, after the start he's had it might do him some good to stop thinking for a bit and just race..

Haven't noticed it was a problem, but if it is, an earlier start would suit me fine.
One of the drawbacks of livin down under, sitting up at midnight to watch the legends do their stuff. But it's worth every second. Think it's time he got a hair cut or does it just stand out cause the bloke next to him has none?

It is understandable that they want to start the race at 11:00pm so it will be shown in prime time to a lot of Europe.

But in the intrest of a good safe race moving the race back to 8:00pm would seem like the smart thing to do.

Dorna's claim is that they want the riders not to have to deal with the desert heat of racing during the day.

Their decision will speak volumes about weather they care about the riders or if this is just about the money.

I agree with you Southerner. With it being so hot during the day and the track being the color black, it will absorb the most heat and retain it longer, therefore the cold night will be perfect for moisture to form.

With that being said it's time for Simo to Batter up. After all he was touted as the best of the bunch. Supposedly this 250 thing that they are better riders than Superbike riders has grown very, very silent. Anyone remember his WSBK ride and the many put down Spies got. LMAO. Show us please.

Stoner on satelite machinery did way better so far.

I guess Spies is willing to change and adapt his style and perhaps is a natural, whereas Simo is finding out he is not. :D

" Supposedly this 250 thing that they are better riders than Superbike riders has grown very, very silent."

Yeah it shure has gotten quiet from all the guys saying that Simon was going to destroy Mr. Spies. I could name names. But that would not be any fun.

Simon will come around. The sooner the better hopefully. Be great to see anybody running up front with the Fab Four. Hopefully this slow start will keep him from doing his holligan, banzi 250 stuff throwing the bike down and knocking people around the race track.

Come on Simon show us fans you belong.

Good luck Mr. Simoncelli I am rooting for you !!!!!
