WSBK » Bimota's Iddon hails ‘wonderful opportunity’


Do we have to watch it race all year before we can buy one ?? The bike was officially released november last, homologated last month...but the bike isn't even listed on Bimota's official site. This is all well and good, racing bikes that have passed the STRICT homologation rules, but when can the public buy one...? I'm not suggesting anything like the Foggy Petronas debacle will take place here, no way as Bimota are an established bike maker despite their troubles over the years, but the bikes should be on sale to the public before they race...and that should be parmount condition with any homologation rule !?

MotoGP » Suzuki starts ECU transition


Toward the end of 2011 Paul Denning stated that Suzuki, 'considered switching to magneti marelli ECU last season, but the Mitsubishi ECU has stayed...next season we hope to implement those changes'...he hoped otherwise, but we all now know that there was no 2012 motogp for Suzuki. Even when they were 'developing' their motogop comeback GSV-R, the 2012 bike still ran with the Japanese ECU. It was quite simply a decision based upon the two company's close ties, they have worked together in various ways...an example being when Suzuki supplied them with small cars, badged Mitsubishi, for the Japanese market.

MotoGP » Mamola: Hayden on a Honda will be something


RSMick has it spot on... Also, Nicky hasn't won anything for 8 or 9 seasons, even on that 'famed Honda' it wasn't podiums either but his relative consistency AND the importance of the N American market that kept the ride...same at Ducati...I like Nicky, and one hopes that being on the Honda and the actual lack of electronics will go in his favour...all relative to those on similar equipment of course, but I'd have thought he may well contend with the Ducati's whether factory, open or whatever else they throw on the grid this year...

WSBK » Fully fit Haslam refocuses for 2014


Continued... His father has pushed and prodded him, playing the part of his chief mechanic and suspension man, whilst his teams have had to suffer their own top line crew men demoted to little more than sucking their thumbs because Ron and Leon say they are incompetent or plain wrong ! If that's not the case then why have so many teams threatened to kick Ron out of the garage...No doubt Ron is a technical set up wizard, but I he's not team oriented and such undermining of crew members has a detrimental effect upon the team as a whole.
