MotoGP » Argentina MotoGP gets green light from FIM


"We have been working very hard to take care of every detail with the circuit, also for all of the public who will be coming to this event.” What, all three of them??? This circuit is literally in the middle of nowhere, miles and miles from any populated area. The 'crowd' is likely to make Qatar look jam-packed in comparison. All in favour of spreading the sport to new countries but this isn't the answer.

MotoGP » MotoGP Factory, Open class 'should be a difficult decision'


" However manufacturers would lose the chance to develop their own software technology, something Honda views as vital to future road machines and a major justification for its participation in MotoGP." Really??? Then why is the Honda Fireblade the least sophisticated of all the major Superbikes? Other manufacturers are offering traction control, ride-by-wire and other advanced systems as standard. Honda? Nothing. We all know the real truth - Honda wins by out-spending their rivals. If they are not allowed to do that then they are not confident of winning.

MotoGP » Dall’Igna begins reshaping Ducati


“For me the most important thing this year is to see progress.” For sure. Everything that GiGi is doing with the organisation makes perfect sense. BUT. The reality is that Honda and Yamaha are also making progress. If Ducati is to recover the vast amount of lost ground they need to make BIG progress and faster than the competition. Can this be done by evolving the fundamentally flawed current bike? I don't think so.

MotoGP » Honda responds to Production Racer criticism


Folk who expected the production Honda to be anywhere near the factory machines are simply delusional. The last time we had this sort of set-up was in the Yamaha TZ days. Yamaha made a range of 'production' bikes that anyone could buy and sell. They were reasonably competitive but nowhere near the equivalent factory bikes that sported the trick parts. Ultimately you get what you pay for. $1.2m to BUY the bike when LEASING a satellite factory machine costs upwards of $4m. You would have to be an idiot to expect the performance to be anywhere close. This bike was designed as a cost-effective alternative to making your own CRT bike and that is exactly what Honda has produced. Hayden may be disappointed but really what did he expect? He has had his chances for long enough on works machinery and generally been out-competed by his team-mates. As you drop down the pecking order, these are the only sorts of options available if you want to remain in MotoGP. As his star has waned he would have

BSB » Jenny Tinmouth back for BSB 2014


Don't disagree with you at all Tetley but the story here is about her pushing on to achieve top ten finishes in 2014. That simply is not going to happen with her current level of kit / support no matter how hard she tries. Nobody doubts her ability, determination or 'balls' - her performance at the TT should have dispelled any such doubts. But she will need to either get a ride with a better, established team or a sponsor with deep pockets to get the competitive package needed to challenge anywhere near the top ten.

MotoGP » Ducati already on track at Sepang


Open class is definitely the best option for Ducati. Their bike just cannot compete with Honda & Yamaha in the 'factory' class so better to take the extra fuel / motors / tyres and aim to compete with the customer bikes. They will also get a head start in adapting their bike to the control ECU / software which is going to be obligatory anyway in a year or two.
