Great stuff Danny

Its a bit odd that less than half the bikes present are submitting times ??

What i understand is there is a bit of 'creative accounting' going on and some are deciding not to play the games.

I am the manager of two of the riders not submitting times, their teams are focusing on race pace and running 'medium' tyres all day. 'Others' are fitting 'softs' to set a time !!!

Truth is no one will really know until Qatar, some are using the official Moto3 ECU, others are not. Some are using soft tyres, some are not.

And nobody is carrying any weight, most are under the minimum weight (148 Kg).

When the flag drops, the Bulls**t will stop, and not before !!

But damn it always appears standing out amongst all the very informative and knowledgeable contributions . Yes all us clever clogs can sit back feeling like a fountain of knowledge and uttering to ourselves how can anyone make a mistake like that . We have all known for ages that Moto3 bikes are 250 4 strokes. I also read on another thread someone pointing out that Danny Kent hadn't done anything of note before now . Where have people like that been . The guy was riding what was lterally a spare bike last season . Look what happened when he got hold of the proper race bike . I think this could be the best season for British race fans for quite a few years . We have got genuine contenders in Danny and and Scott and i am
