MotoGP » Indianapolis MotoGP test - Wednesday.


I dont understand what all the fuss is about with this test? Test riders are normally 2-3secs slower than the top riders so Canepa & Spies being half a second faster than japanese testers is nothing to get excited about!They will still be at the back of the grid fighting with Melandri. It could be argued that the test is not about time for regular testers as they just want to know what works,there are only 2 people who have anything thing to gain by looking fast,so they'll surelly be pushing a bit harder..? The most significant part of the test I can see is why is the Yamaha B-stone tester so slow and where has Aoki gone on the time sheets?That isnt a great start for Rossi or Suzuki

F1 » Ferrari give Hamilton ol' 1-2 in French GP.


Im sorry but F1 is an absolute joke. With the ban on TC making the races a 'little' more interesting, I was just starting to get back into watching it again after being seduced by motorbike in the late 90's. But for hamilton to only make up 3 places with one of the best cars on the grid is humiliating!!! How can it be fun to watch when there is (at best) 1 or 2 overtakes a race??? Danny prdrosa was fighting for 2nd in the british moto gp from 9th on the grid and lorenzo Got 6th from starting 17th!! And all this from a series that is widely thought of as being spoilt with the advent of traction control. I realy hope for F1's sake that next years aero changes help. :?

BSB » Byrne battles back for seventh win.


Completely agree FooAtari!!! Or a cost price cap of £15k. Just to add another part to the debate... Yamaha have previosly gone down the 'special' route too with there R1 SP. However it was only a couple of grand extra than the standard model, not 10, and it had they same engine size!! Ducati have recognised a loophole in the rules and rather than just push a little like they have in the past, they have completly took the pi$$ out of it!!! Good on Palmer for doing something about it, but it should have been sorted at the start of the year! It'll be a shame not to see any Dukes on the grid though, as im sure they'll spit there dummy's and refuse to race with an S model.

Cont.. But they have not sold 100! Ducati UK pre registered a load to make it eligable for racing. The bikes are not on the open road, they are sitting in the dealers brand new with ducati uk as the first owner. Then add to that an extra 100cc for the R model and it just turns the whole system into a complete farce. Its a shame because it will overshadow the great job Byrne and Bayliss in WSB are doing. I hope Byrne does go the WSB and I think he'll do well too. He should have done that in 04 rather than go for the cash in moto gp. He's on record as saying that himself.

Danum, I think you've missed the point of Holologation. Hrc as with Rizla, Hawk, Mss and all the others can all change EXACTLY the same parts according to the rules. However, ducati produce there R model, (as with the SPS before it) with lots of extra tricks bits fitted as standard so they can get around the rules that say they have to use standard parts in particular area's. The Conrods debate is prime example. Every bike has standard rods as does the standard 1098 and 1098s but the R uses titanium. So the Ducati race bike are using titanium in there race bikes. Are you telling me that is fair? The rules also say they have to sell 100 bikes for it to be eligable.... cont..
