WSBK » PTR scraps WSBK plans, looks to BSB


Wasn't it only a couple of weeks ago that Scott Smart was being widely applauded for coming up with a set of WSB technical rules that were regarded as being a good balance between managing costs whilst allowing sensible levels of electronics and technical advance? As much as I enjoy BSB, it has become an event where there is managed parity i.e. the rules are manipulated to try and level the field artificially and the bikes are technically less advanced that the road bikes on which they are based. The result is that speeds and performance have declined. Not convinced? Look at the BSB website and check out the lap records per circuit. You may be surprised to see how many records date back to 2005 and 2006. That says something. As for a second bike, most of the top teams effectively have one already - it is just broken up into parts and sub-assemblies waiting to be built up. Racing is an expensive business, always has been, always will be. If you don't have the readies to play, tough.

F1 » Hamilton 0.6s clear as red flags hit FP2


dave2k:
SeymoreRacing: I think this could be the seminal race in the season.
Seminal: relating to or denoting semen. I hope this isn't a seminal race.
Thanks for that interpretation and I agree that wouldn't be a happy ending! I was however referring to one of the other definitions of a seminal event - Highly original and influencing the development of future events. A seminal moment is that brief lapse of time in which something happens that is potentially life changing, or changes the course of things. It is that instant when the seed is planted to develop into something bigger.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow: Trading places


Tetley:
: “Everybody believes you can just jump on a Honda and be winning. It doesn't happen like that at all." @Insidejob "incorrect. Just look at Marc, Casey and Dani."
Sorry, Insidejob, I have to say that your logic is flawed and you are the one being incorrect. For every time that Marc, Casey and Dani won on a Honda, there was at least one other rider who WASN'T winning on a Honda. Which proves Cal's comment. Q E D.
Eh??? What this proves is that if you are genuinely world class (like MM, Stoner, Pedrosa), you can jump on a Honda and win from the get-go. If you are not (like Bradl, Bautista) you won't. Where do you think Cal sits in this equation?

MotoGP » Smith: Signed, seamless, ready to deliver


Kwakaracer - the only people who have any legitimate right to comment on Brads performnce are his sponsors No, this is wrong and absolute nonsense. Bike Racing is a sport that depends on spectators, sponsors, merchandising, and bike purchasers to fund its activities. As such if you buy the ticket, buy the t-shirt, buy the bike, then you have contributed to their earnings and their living. Yes, everyone who has bought a ticket to the MotoGP at Silverstone has supported British riders with their money. Therefore if you have contributed then you have a RIGHT to make an opinion and others have a right to disagree with that opinion. It's called freedom of speech in case you hadn't noticed.

F1 » Rosberg refuses to take blame


The first person you want to beat is your team-mate. BUT The first rule of racing is don't narf off your team-mate. All this talk about it being a 'racing incident' are false. You have to drive more carefully when you are adjacent to your team-mate than when it is a competitor from another team. As for the team being critical of Nico, well frankly what do you expect? For all he might not want to take the blame, HE ran into the back of Hamilton whether you regard it as a racing incident or not. Whatever your view on it though, Hamilton is now going to be gunning for Nico. I can see this getting very ugly.
