F1 » Jordan: 'Not good enough' Schumacher deserves the sack


He's got every chance next with the new pirelli's...level playing field and nobody has seen more car regulation changes than him. He needs to be up front though at the start of the new season, lowly qualifying won't aid his cause. He doesn't have to be on the grid but he knows he can mix it up with the very best, he is the best..times have changed, granted, but everyone knew he'd require a decent car and time...they wrote the car off months ago for this years challenge, Rosberg has everything to prove and Schumacher was beyond that in 1991..why should he go Eddie ??

WSBK » ‘Easy decision’ as Corser re-signs for BMW


The day we hear of Mladin testing for a WSB team is the day I'll believe it's a possibility...too much a risk for both parties perhaps, Mladin will want the fortune nobody can risk nor afford and the team will want something more than mighty special in return. Is this likely to happen, why would both parties risk such a venture..perhaps best that Mladin goes down as one of those individuals that could've achieved far more on a world level but he took the road to riches with the 'big bonus per win' AMA...who can blame the guy for that after his past experiences in 500cc GP ??

WSBK » ‘Easy decision’ as Corser re-signs for BMW


ZXRob, you beat me to it...there's no better development rider than Corser but he won't win BM a title, he's had his day and he knows it. They need a real go getter alongside Troy, someone prepared to totally rag it to within an inch of its life...someone not needing to chase an exact set up week in week out. I'd suggest a non factory rider, someone relatively new..JT no chance, I'm afraid I'd be surprised if he's even on their b list of prospectives, Haslam may be a good pick but Loris Baz is certainly being watched and France is a big market for BM, other than him they really need a good American, the market is just vast and the series wouldn't shy to the presence either !!

F1 » Petrov's 2011 chances boosted as Renault signs new Russian sponsor


Kimi will surely only chase the big bucks..how could Renault compete on this front ?? Then again, F1 is a great proposition for him still with no testing and far less 'working' weekends than the WRC...plainly his manager is on the war path for a bit of liesurely F1 fun and games as Kimi's going to be struggling now he's plainly not going to manage on his Ferrari pay off money alone..his junior Citroen WRC drive pay wouldn't keep him in a weeks booze, partying and yatching :(

MotoGP » Casey Stoner wins Aragon, Hayden third


I really enjoyed the battles going on throughout the field today..apart from the obvious 'suspects,' impressed with Bautista again..really hope Suzuki hang in there with 2bikes next season !! Lorenzo implied Hayden was 'resting on him' throughout the race and only did his own work in the last lap..a bit unfair I'd say but great manoeuvre from Nicky nonetheless. Rossi needs to get his shoulder sorted, why not take this time out sooner for the op' rather than risk the start of next season with Ducati...maybe he'll miss the last 2races or would that sour his relations with Yamaha ...does it matter ??

WSBK » Sykes, Fujiwara test new Kawasaki ZX-10R


I think what I'm asking is if these are the Showa BPF and also if race teams are running them now or merely 'kitting them back' to conventional with such kits from the likes of Ktech ?? If you feel moved to hit the 'disagree' button then surely you could throw your info / knowledge into the ring also, just a couple of words would be great..it was after all a question rather than a statement.there, I've offloaded a minor gripe here lol.

WSBK » Sykes, Fujiwara test new Kawasaki ZX-10R


Looks like a Showa BPF, fortunately the rider can choose an alternative, I certainly hope they can ! There was a big fuss with these forks but most race bike teams ( like Super sport where they have to keep original equipment ) have used different internals..KTech do a very good kit for the Showa BPF but certainly not big piston, a sort of conversion to previous generation tech', what's known and understood but I believe, through limited resource R&D, they have improved on the original principle now...anyone know in this regard ??

BSB » Splitlath Aprilia allowed back in BSB Evo


The Aprilia is a better all round bike than the BMW IMHO, it lacks outright grunt but has a more useable and wider power band with a great slipper clutch as I found out knocking it down two too many gears ( I've not ridden the traction version ). Its forte is its brakes along with just how sweet and nimble it is..it can be thrown at a cornering bend, you can stamp on the brakes and it'll still go pretty much wherever you want it to go. Certainly it loses a bike length every time you change gear to the BM but it just makes up for it in so so many ways. Edit: I think anyone familiar with the K5 or K6 GSX-R 1000 would feel at home on the BM...I didn't know whether to believe that when I initially read about it but really it does, just with more grunt once again and the trick electronics.
