BSB » Mallory Park eyeing BSB return


The track is perfect? Uhm, short, boring, lots of nasty little chicanes, bumpy worn-out surface. The facilities are excellent? WHAT facilities? There aren't any! Certainly not for the spectator. The only thing Mallory Park is first rate for are the fly infestations coming off the lake in the summer. It even makes Knockhill look sophisticated. Mallory is a nasty little place best confined to history.

BSB » Mallory Park eyeing BSB return


whitehead: Make it a true British Championship, rounds in all he home countries. The Welch and N Irish fans never get to see their home grown riders unless they go to England or Scotland. Some friends of mine, who I meet years ago at the Ulster GP, come over at a minimum cost of £300 each and that's just to go to Knockhill.
Problem as always is money. The tracks have to pay a large sum to host an event and if they don't get the crowd then they lose money. Mondello used to do rounds some years ago but it was largely funded by the Irish Tourist Board & when that funding dried up that was it. Essentially BSB is now the MSV tracks championship with a couple of other circuits thrown into the mix.

MotoGP » PICS: Waterfall tumble ends Crutchlow Q2 chances


cfsteezy: Its ironic that ducatis road going bikes are known for great handling and being underpowered, but their GP bike cant handle and has loads of power. Lol
The Ducati 1199 Panigale road bike develops 195 bhp at 10,750 rpm, and 98.1 lb ft torque at 9000 rpm. With a kerb weight of 188 kg it has the highest power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios of any production motorcycle. Motorcycle Consumer News ranked the 2012 Panigale S with the best rear wheel horsepower to wet weight ratio of any bike the magazine had ever tested, as well as the 5th highest rear wheel horsepower, and the 10th highest top speed. Don't post when you just don't know what you are talking about.

MotoGP » PICS: Waterfall tumble ends Crutchlow Q2 chances


mark.james.7374: The future looked bright for Cal last year, but I'm afraid it's not looking good for you now cal, once you've had a bad season like your having, the riders at the sharp end are racing even harder and faster than before when you managed to get a few podiums with the tec3 bike, but the worse is to come cal, the duc he's riding. lets face it, if your name is not CS you are wasting your time, its nearly wreaked so many racers carers riding that crap, it knocks your conference in which if you were to go to another manufacturer you'd still be slow, why" you'll still have the duc still in your mind with the problems it had, under steer, not stable under breaking, etc etc , plus it takes years to get back up to speed as well, just ask VR plus cal is no VR so me thinks your gp days are over mate, hope the money you made was worth it?
The Ducati hasn't wrecked Dovi's career.

WSBK » Camier to ride MV Agusta at Laguna Seca


Yearby23: It's ridiculous no one has signed him full time... Has everyone forgotten that he is the reason the BSB Showdown exists?! Simply because he made a mockery of every rider in BSB that year.
That was all down to the bike. The new R1 that year was head & shoulders above everything else and in the best funded team (GSE Airwaves) to boot. Camier and his team mate Ellison came 1st & 2nd, way ahead of everybody else. Yes it takes a good rider to exploit the potential but nonetheless it was 80% due to the bike.

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


From the wording it suggests that there was an agreed letter of understanding but the final contract was not signed. As letters of understanding normally dictate a timeline in which a formal contract has to be subsequently agreed and lapse if that doesn't happen then I can't quite see how Marc VDS can claim that they have a 'binding' contract. By their own admission the contract was not actually signed. Marc VDS might feel aggrieved that Miller is backing away from them but an unsigned contract doesn't do a lot for them. As for Miller, let's just say that from what I've seen so far, personality-wise, I'm not real impressed.
