WSBK » Guintoli back to his best with pole


Congratulations to Sylvain. Great lap, Great time. a few years ago one minute thirty point zero was a very good time for a MotoGp bike around the Island! Nicky Hayden's pole time stood as the fastest lap for years and years it was on the Honda RC211v but I do not remember the year 2006 or 07 from memory Great to see Guintoli doing well after major shoulder problems, fingers crossed. I would love to see Sylvain keep his head this year and put together an entire season of good results. such a fast rider with great courage very fast in the fast corners. I would love to see Sylvain win the championship, not just the first race

MotoGP » Tragedy strikes Simoncelli Supermoto event


from what i have read on Repubblic Sport Rombomi slid off the track and was hit by Gianluca Vizziello, who was on another section on the circuit going "traveling in the opposite direction to his own" the layout is flat with no barriers to hit but no separation between different parts on the same circuit. so sorry to hear this sad news Doriano was a good man & a great racer.

MotoGP » Rossi warns Saturday weather ‘may be worse’


Regarding the story and what Valentino Rossi is quoted " pity about today because there was good conditions for riding on the track” he said. “It was wet but there was no wind and not too much water so it's a pity that because of the helicopter we cannot ride. It's an important day today because it looks like tomorrow the weather will be worse." IMO they could have brought the Heli in earlier. kept it in hanger & had Heli up at track. about fog. but it is cheaper to save 2 or 3 days Heli hire? Honda, who built & own the circuit(s), know & knew they need medivac because of remote location and no on site medical facilities. AFAIK I have never been to Motegi so just going on 2nd hand info.

MotoGP » Doubts over MotoGP race distance


Not good enough. and now Carmelo is going to dictate tyre pressures to be used. WTF. "teams and riders have ignored the recommendations of the official tyre suppliers on issues such as tyre pressures. It is suspected that this has led to cases of abnormal degradation of tyres affecting the safety of the riders. A new regulation has been approved which will compel teams and riders to use the tyres according to the parameters agreed by the Technical Director and the organisers in consultation with the official tyre suppliers." so now it is not the fault of Bridgestone?

A penalty of EXCLUSION from the race result has been inflicted on #22 Alex Lowes for causing contact which resulted in an accident.
