definitely one of my favorite riders and IMO the fastest on the moto2 grid in the the last 2 years (and he didn't have Honda's special treatment/parts help to do it) ,, great balls out style.
Hope the new chassis lets him back-it-in like only he can do

If he ever gets a Honda in gp, he'll piss on most. He almost ruined his career by taking a CRT dooms-day ride. The only job after the forgettable CRTs is slinging burgers.

"I had some interesting opportunities to switch to MotoGP, especially from the Pramac Ducati team, but right now I'm happy to stay in Moto2 and I'll have a year to think about it," said Iannone.

Best decision ever....

He tested this last week and I read at the time that most of the chassis is machined, starting life as a 188kg block reduced to 7.5kg chassis.
The pictures are available on the net, Speedup which is Luca Boscurra's company use the old Aprilia RS250 mouldings for the bodywork and looking at the chassis bears a close resemblence to the ART.

Going to Motogp 2013? Do not sign for Ducati!!!! They maybe Italian, but you need to have brains and follow the wise ie Those who chose Yamaha or Honda.
For your own good and sane mentality, pass the duc.

Crazy Hair........Crazy Guy!!!!!

But fast, very fast and brave. This year the level playing field (ie limits on testing) will take the advantage away from Repsol Marquez and deiliver it to the the door of this guy. He reminds me very much of Supersic (and that is a compliment)
