MotoGP » Silverstone ‘extremely disappointed’ to lose 2015 MotoGP


I'm with the majority here and entirely happy to sit on a grassy bank and wander around to see what is going on (& I'm no spring chicken). BUT I don't want to be paying VIP prices of upwards of £85 in order to do that. A couple of years back I went to the last MotoGP event at Estoril and it cost €10.50 to get in! At the end of the day if you charge VIP prices then you should expect VIP treatment and facilities to match. Rip-off Britain is alive & well.

MotoGP » Rainey to help run American road racing


The key to getting more factory involvement has always been to harmonise the rules between the major series (WSB / BSB / AMA). If this happened then the smaller series like the German, Italian & Australian competitions would follow suit. There are also the benefits of local wildcards from the national series participating in WSB events which always attract in a bigger crowd. But the reality is that the series have moved apart rather than come together. WSB is still the most technically focused (& most expensive) whilst AMA is the closest to road bikes with a loud can and BSB is somewhere in-between. Unless those in charge come together for the greater good (& I honestly can't see that happening) then superbikes as a whole will continue to struggle. Too much vested interest & too little imagination.

WSBK » Title contender Guintoli to ‘fight for every point’


ProfessorX: Melandri is a saint compared to MM who intentionally runs in to people when ever he is having problems passing. The only thing keeping MM from killing someone is the speed of his bike/tires.
Marquez is a hard rider not adverse to sitting someone up but all champions have that tendency. Rossi has done his fair share of moves and all of them are absolutely nothing compared to the Doohan / Gardner / Swantz / Spencer / Roberts days. It isn't a knitting contest.

MotoGP » Silverstone ‘extremely disappointed’ to lose 2015 MotoGP


Silverstone are basically saying that COW don't have a clue about the financial realities of running an event like this. They are probably right. But what they don't understand is that they are dealing with Wales and the Taffia. The money will come from the Welsh Government via some route which means ultimately the good ol' tax-payer picking up the tab. Silverstone wouldn't ever get such support but the rules are totally different in Wales.
