MotoGP » COMMENT: Who should replace Rossi at Yamaha?


MotoGP rookies will not be able to join a factory team from 2010 (except Suzuki, which has no satellite team) and a precise definition of a 'rookie' was therefore needed to avoid, for example, teams claiming that a rider was not rookie because he had already made some grand prix starts as a wild-card. To help clear up the situation, the Commission has given the following definitions of new 'rookie' rider and a 'contracted' rider: “A contracted rider is a rider who has participated in nine or more events during one season. “A “Rookie” is a rider nominated by a participating team for participation in the entire season, who has not been a contracted rider as defined above

WSBK » Parrish tips Toseland to shine, Rea to win


Definitely if u take spies out of the picture, Rea was the standout of the 2nd half of last season, a sign he is maturing rapidly. He has already shown he is quick at the official tests, and a little bird told me he was at a public trackday at phillip island yesterday getting some laps in...... Yeah he isnt as consistent as spies was but he is in a different world, but he is no less consistent than haga, or fabrizio, or even biaggi for that matter.

MotoGP » Poll: Does MotoGP need rule changes?


DO we really want GP turning into the fiasco that has been F1 over the past few years with all their ridiculous rule changes?? I think some stability in the rules will save more money and allow the smaller teams with smaller budgets time to catch up with the big boys. In the meantime with all this trying to slow down MotoGp to be "safer" the production based series is getting ever faster and is in very close on lap times, with the 600's not that far behind either. It would be a very sad day to see the prototype motorbikes lapping slower than a production bike, kinda defeats the purpose of the series.

WSBK » WSS: Laverty celebrates 'best race win'


Racefan - very PC description. Mad Max, hmm, not so sure, explain Jonny Rea then? He gets the Ulslter Flag and the British National Anthem. Realistically, and to be blunt about it, its a religion thing. Eugene laverty - Catholic so therefore Irish Flag and National Anthem. Jonny Rea and Eddie Irvine - Protestant and so Either Ulster Flag or Union Jack and British National Anthem. The Rider/Driver chooses which they want dependant on their upbringing and beliefs. All are allowed to carry British and Irish Passports and most likely do.

F1 » HAVE YOUR SAY: Have the FIA got it right?


Excellent, lets take the racing off the track another step. Yet another reason why my tolerance for F1 has declined gradually over the past 10 years. Racing should be about man and machine, racing lights to flag, its bad enough that we are subjected to all the tactics of pit stops (the only way overtaking ever happens these days). Now it appears a championship can be decided by a judge!!! Whats next? Ill stick to following Moto GP and WSBK thanks, now thats racing.
