MotoGP » Moto3 ECU supplier named

I can't believe some folks still fall for this four stroke crap, the cost to develop them has driven manufacturers away, not brought them back...two stroke is the future guys, powerful / cheap / cleaner day by day..have a look at some of lotus car engine projects, if the car industry is looking then why not bikes anymore ?? Answer is they were all retooled to four stroke and want more and more payback on their investments...more and more naive it appears given the equal progression with electronic 'solutions'.. foolish !!

MotoGP » 1000cc set for Mugello test debut

Yes, Jerry Burgess has been quite vocal as regards the '600cc formula' and how much easier it'd be to progress from one to's the natural capacity now as so many experience it all different levels. I guess the only issue would be at motogp level as they're already struggling with effective 'grunt'and no amount of fettling can create more in the way of this..they'd be a tad gutless even in comparison to the 800's that folk even now complain of...but, if it's there for all and experience is not like it is presently as very few can say they've ridden anything like the latest 800cc gp bikes. I guess the term '250 style of rider' would still apply in terms of keeping momentum through the corners..I'm sorry but I miss the 990's and anything bringing back something remotely reminiscent of Stoner et al sliding it out of corners is something that can only woo furture spectators..alas, modern electronics will put paid to that :(

F1 » Sir Jackie Stewart taken ill on flight from Geneva

Worthy of a quick mention, a brief blog entry 'perhaps' by one of the crew members made mention that there was a very real fear of something quite serious: ''a well known former 'sort of sportsman' ( as it's written in the email received ) today... had what was initially feared a stroke..... he quickly appeared to recover however....' If at all true, I do hope this is something for which he'll have no future adverse side effects.

WSBK » Yamaha pulls wraps off 2011 R1

Well, it can't be worse than last years bike fresh out of the crate can it...I really hope it's got a good base set up installed, ready to Marco will be on a downward spiral if he starts off complaining about that front end..fortunately he can rely on his 250 days if it has similar traction problems coming out of the corners...the bike / engine they originally said was nothing other than ultra smooth, let's see if it lives up to that and if they've cracked its issues this year.

F1 » Bahrain GP under threat from anti-government protests

You're all missing the point..when the protesters are shot, and trust me they will be, Bernie can send the relatives a small percentage of the income he's made from all the added publicity...the drivers will wear suitable black armbands and will naturally tell the audience that 'more important are the dead'...the protesters relatives have made a bob or two and F1 gets its race with everyone fired up ready for the next event. Just where is the problem here, this is big business guys...

BSB » Crescent: Hopkins kept us in BSB

I wonder if he'll bother living 'semi full time' back in his old stomping ground...I used to visit Ashby de la Zouch and nearer to him but great days when you could see Hopper fooling around with Melandri et al in and around Donisthorpe, Derbyshire..trial biking across the fields or cycling around the country lanes. I shall keep an eye out around Thruxton to see when they attempt a test there.. A fit and motivated Hopper really should run rings around BSB, we'll know by 5th round if he's up to it and showing Byrne up for the flash git he really is.. I just hope he can take advantage and get a shout with the 1000cc motogp rules coming up but it'll have to be a two bike suzuki affair as anyone with a modicum of motogp nouse can see Bautista is really one of the stars of the future and further more, suzuki love him.
