MotoGP » Official: Marco Melandri splits from Aprilia


ProfessorX: it was never the tires, it was LCR that was running on a budget not suitable for a whole season. LCR were so poor before Bradl showed up, it was ridiculous. Tack on the ridiculous spiteful commentary from guys like Toby Moody and you had a whole bunch of excuses as to why Tony couldn't get on with a half a$$ effort from LCR who were running a bike from the old and spare parts bin. It was Elias who did well enough on Bridgestone when he was at Gresini and the Satellite Ducati team. Don't repeat what idiot commentators say.
Haha the world according to proftroll, they were not spec tyres when Elias rode for Dantin, Bridgestone said that Elias will suffer in 09 even more so in 11, they made specials for him on the Ducati and the Gresini in 07. LCR have always ran fine teams.

MotoGP » Official: Marco Melandri splits from Aprilia


MotoMarc: Wierd how WSB was more interesting for quite awhile compared to Motogp but seems like the pendulum has swung back to GPs.
Depends in which country, Britain it was yes according to press not actual figures.
RealDrWho: That's because Dorna took over WSBK
No they didn't, Bridgepoint took over Infront Sports and Media, WSB was a tiny spec of that run by Infront Motors Sports which ISM got for free, when Bridgepoint looked into its lack of profits they handed it to Dorna.

MotoGP » Poncharal: Right now, I’d keep Smith and Espargaro


Would this be the underdeveloped bike that there was 8 on the grid in 2013 and which Iannone finished 3rd on in the championship in 2012? In essence Lowes is on a factory bike and has had all Speedup resources behind him, where as although Pons were the first to use Kalex, Rins is on a customer bike. The rookie Rins is just 9 points behind your boy Lowes, 5th in the championship and showing the ability what you expect from a top Moto3 rider to conserve his tyres and challange at the end of the race, something WSB and WSS riders struggle with, remember Sofoglu? You may be right, Lowes is in a different league, but you may find at the end of the season its a lower one! Not so stupid comments when you consider these:

I rate Rins but think he needs to improve his season a bit. Rins has hadly set Moto2 on fire has he ?

MotoGP » Aoyama back in place of Abraham?


Really Proff? MotoGPete was right, it was a 3 year old chassis with no developement as HRC stopped 2 years previous, the engine was drip fed bits from whatever HRC had lying around in the stores from previous years. He had to do it all with a single bike as well when the top teams had 2 that year and very little money, because KTM had withdrawn at the end of 08 suprising everyone, Scot with very little money pulled together a last minute package. Some say Aprilia had taken their eye off the ball as well as they were in WSB with the RSV4, funded by the 250 teams who were paying extortionate lease prices.

MotoGP » Poncharal: Right now, I’d keep Smith and Espargaro


Tomco:
Sete: Smith has improved a lot. Pol has been somewaht disappointing. I'd sign Rins!
Rins has hadly set Moto2 on fire has he ? Id sign Sam Lowes and not because Im British but because hes doing pretty well on a SpeedUp. Actually Id sign Zarco too.
So leading the world championship is not counted as doing well?? Rins is an awesome rider who will be in Motogp and more than likely on a Yamaha, Poncharal tried to tempt him through his Moto2 route but failed.

MotoGP » 2.2 million lease price among 2017 announcements


The 24 bike figure became the rule in 2000, where at the end of the season 5 teams, Pons, Tech3, KR, WCM & Dantin were given 5 year contracts for 2 grid slots. The aim was to give all teams long term stability and more financial support, more teams did not provide better quality racing (as in 92-95) just eating the pie. Grid slots are valuable and therefore can be sold or as Gresini have, used to partner with a manufacture, 25 was allowed this year as to allow Suzuki in but also protect exisitng teams, Dorna showing loyalty, Suzuki were told if they wanted to return either partner with existing team or pay your own way for tyres and travel. Its not just a case of chucking more tyres in the truck, its financial, unlike WSB the teams are provided free issue with the tyres. It comes with a penalty though, the last 2 places in the championship will receive no travel subsidy next year.
