WSBK » EBR racing at Assen despite manufacturer bankruptcy


Got confused with the "Indian motorcycle manufacturer" sentence. I guess now we have to differentiate between the brand name Indian motorcycle, the one made by Polaris in the U.S. and that of the country of India, where the Hero is made. I've been a fan of Erik Buell for years. He definitely has a passion for motorcycles, but has suffered because of it. He got a real raw deal from Harley-Davidson.

F1 » Stewart urges F1 to ‘respect its heritage’


dickiebird:
Jim Clausen: Is Jackie campaigning for Bernie's job? At one time Jackie was castigated for trying to ruin the tradition of racing, in general. This was when he was trying to instigate new safety measures to F1, in particular the circuit safety. Today's racers owe Jackie Stewart a huge debt of gratitude, some owe their very lives to Jackie and his safety campaign.
Try telling that to the families of the literally scores of motorcycle racers who lost their lives because of his "safety measures". The human body dies when it impacts solid objects like catch fence poles and armco barriers. I wonder why he never got that? Probably because he had a cage surrounding him.
I was simply pointing out Jackie's role as for tradition. No doubt track safety has improved immensely since the days of Armco barriers. No argument that some of the early track safety improvements were detrimental to motorcycle racers.

F1 » Stewart urges F1 to ‘respect its heritage’


Is Jackie campaigning for Bernie's job? At one time Jackie was castigated for trying to ruin the tradition of racing, in general. This was when he was trying to instigate new safety measures to F1, in particular the circuit safety. The old 14 mile Nurburgring was drastically changed due to Jackie's and Niki Lauda's influence. Today's racers owe Jackie Stewart a huge debt of gratitude, some owe their very lives to Jackie and his safety campaign.
