It is possible... Casey has a really strong chance of a win. With Pedrosa on form, Dovi and Simo both riding quite well and maybe, just maybe, that Ducati will be hooked up enough to get in the mix and Lorenzo could drop 10 points this weekend. To be honest, apart from a couple of great rides by Jorge and a couple of minor set backs for Casey, he deserves this title. New bike (best bike or not doesn't matter) and was on it right from the first lap.

He doesn't know how strong the Honda will be. Unless there is a distinct advantage you would expect Lorenzo to get a podium. Dovi is already signed up for 2012 so will not be risking his neck. Pedrosa and his legs don't like Phillip Island and he will be carefull as he looks forward to pre season testing on the 1000 and next year. Simo has similarly got his works bike for next year so doesn't need to risk his neck. Lorenzo is the only one who really has any montive to push 100%. I have no doubt Hayden will also push really hard. I think Rossi will spend the last few races trying things in preperation for 2012 and maynot push too hard.

I own a house about 2KM from the track. Got here early this morning from my normal residence about 120KM away and the traffic was fairly busy. Just looked out the window at the main road and it is VERY busy. I think the crowd will be huge in the off chance Stoner clinches the championship. I might head off down the pub and see who is there. Usually a few riders get thirsty on the Thursday night....

such as,

"yer im going to win, get pole, set lap record, pole record and take the title".
