BSB » Kiyonari BSB title bid in doubt after crash


Yea...he will be able to do race 2 & 3... Because ur qualifying time is not for race 2 & 3... only for race 1. Your fastest lap in race one determines your grid position for race 2. So he will basically start at the back for race 2. Then his fastest time from race 2 will determine his grid position for race 3. Of all the BSB rules this is the one I really like the best as it can turn around the race for many guys that were slow in qualifying but did well in the race and they get to have a better starting position... I seriously think WSBK should adapt this rule. To me the qualifying is for the race...so with 2 races, where is the actual qualifying for race 2? So I think with 2 races there should be 2 qualifying sessions and it makes sense to use race 1 as the qualifier for race 2... Economical and smart...lol and makes the races a little more interesting even if it doesn't change the front of the grid much...top guys are faster anyway...

MotoGP » Hayden ‘gradually’ recovering wrist strength


I think Nicky's exit from Ducati came at the wrong time but with the false hope of production Honda...he took the leap of faith.. even Aleix Esparago was upset (at the time) that he did not stay with Aspar now they have a Proddy Honda... I wonder how Aleix is feeling about that decision now!! With the concessions of the Open Ducati I believe Nicky would have shone this year along with Dovi! but that is in the past now...the hope is that the new engine or "old" new engine next year deliver the goods... and I believe in speed it will but will the chassis be any good for that engine? Obviously the chassis is not the same as Factory so they will gain outright speed but I believe they will lose more in handling.. cannot just toss a bunch of power to a bike and not develop a chassis to handle the power and flex where and when needed....

MotoGP » Rossi: I’m worried because Jorge is so fast


grantrd: Hopefully they have a tire that lasts more than 8 laps..........last years race was a joke.........but JL was much faster than rossi there last year.......... Marquez for the win though.............
Last year Rossi was not on this kind of form and the bike did not suit him...This year has been quite a difference to last year.... and he was not far off the win in Montegi even though JLo cleared off... he was only 3 seconds from the win.... With that said Rossi usually goes very well in PI so I am personally expecting a great contest among the top 4... We will see with MM under less pressure how he goes.. but I hope on...Rossi for the win

WSBK » Denning thrilled to lure de Puniet to Suzuki


I believe that this is a good pairing and the GSX-RR's development was due to his direct input so I would have to say he has good development/feedback abilities and if the GSX-RR comes out swinging in the top ten then I would have to elevate his skills to great.... either way, I believe he will do very well in this series....and I am happy for the dude.. There were complaints of unequal treatment at Aspar and I do not believe he got what he needed there to beat A. Esparago... Do not get me wrong, Aleix earned his position because he rode the bike and not only beat his teammate (equal treatment or not) but he beat the competition too, which is most important but Randy is a good rider that never flourished at Aspar on CRT... prior to that he did well at LCR although he crashed a bit much.. WSBK he may well surprise...

WSBK » Denning thrilled to lure de Puniet to Suzuki


I know!!!....Engineers develop... riders give feedback and input... PS Riders are Test/Operational Engineers...They do not need the degree for that...positions like Field engineers (glorified technicians) require more experience rather than school degrees.... and are valid engineering positions that can/could be held by experienced qualified candidates or Degreed personnel.... The issue is that some companies go strictly for the black and white print while some companies realize the importance of experience in certain positions... I wonder which ones are usually more successful...

MotoGP » Bridgestone to run ‘asymmetric’ front for Phillip Island


Spartacus: What I don't understand is why did the tires in previous years were able to last a full race and last years did not. I guess they must have grabbed a bad batch of tires or something, maybe the previous years' left overs!
As someone said...it was repaved and the result was a lap time almost 2 seconds faster than previous years!!!...The new surface caught everyone out including Dunlop... I think we have given Bridgestone a hard time when in fact, with no testing, it doesn't matter who was the tyre supplier the result would have been the same... in the end they had to handle it the best way they could.....so good job to 'stone... I think they have done a hell of a job.. We can only hope Michellin even does half as good because they have been out of competition for almost 7-8 years and do not compete in any major riders championship...maybe some endurance stuff but hardly the level of Motogp or WSBK...

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati not ready to win


Cont'd... The new incoming teams needed to be able to test and develop so unlimited testing for new and struggling teams without wins or podiums is a fair compromise to keep the interest and the competition alive... The engine freezing would be stupid if you had unlimited testing because you could not change crap that you found during testing if the engine was frozen in development for the year (factory rules)..so those 2 go hand in hand. I am on the fence about the extra fuel... I think the way of the world is fuel efficiency and this is a good development but engineering and money lies with factories having the advantage so it would be hard for independent teams to keep afoot with factories with fuel restrictions...so I understand why this was given but no factory team should be given this concession IMO because they need to develop a fuel efficient engine and they have unlimited testing and additional engine changes to accomplish this.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati not ready to win


YOu might disagree but it is these concessions that are pulling back more factories to the series.... so, I understand the diehard fan side of the story...we all want fair competition and we, die-hard fans will NEVER stop watching motorcycle racing because we love it...but "Money makes the world go 'round" and this MotoGP circus is also a business that needs finances to bring the show to different venues around the world. Something needed to be done to encourage more participation and as I see it...that Is happening now with Aprilia and Suzuki returning... and Aprilia moving forward its racing plans by a year... The restrictions were too much of a handicap for new teams (factory or not) but without the restrictions the cost of racing was too great!! so a medium had to be accomplished and we all have varying ideas of what that should be...I think as a factory team Ducati and all others coming in should race on the same rubber. No extra soft...and give them the factory hard!
