WSBK » Russian WSBK round cancelled


Just like many of the West believe the likes of Bush and Obama are interested in peoples welfare, too many believe the selective journalism and government statements that they read or see. The Moscow Times however is a damn good news paper. For the sake of a race where no one attends, I think that they are right on this one, just like they stop races at tracks considered unsafe, not worth it in an unpredictable area. Remember the fallout of F1 going to the Bahrain?

WSBK » Russian WSBK round cancelled


IE22 Whilst I agree with you with the shambles that is Western foreign policy and Putin having a more sensible and less hypocritical stance, his internal policies are not quite so clear cut. Having worked in Naro-Fominsk for long periods and having to travel from Moscow everyday because that area was not considered safe, it is typical of how Putins internal policies are, like many places across the globe its not like our police where we favour foreigners, theirs is basically if your weren't there it would not have happened. With a lot of top Russian businessmen being blocked from traveling across Europe I cannot see how it would be sensible to allow what is mainly European teams to travel through area's of Russia who may have little understanding of the situation, but, know the Western governments have a gripe against their government at the moment, and they see it as them.

MotoGP » ‘The lap time difference was 0.3 second’


Nakamoto said that Honda would produce a privateer bike and do it properley (referring sarcastically to the ART) they did just that, their bike was 1.3 seconds faster in its first race than the ART in its 19th, and 1.9 seconds than current. This afterall is a privateer bike, Redding lapped 0.84 seconds slower than the fastest lap at Losail, that was Reddings and the bikes first race. That is as close if not closer than any privateer bike has got before, certainly not in its first race, can any of you remember the NSRV's, the ROC's/Harris's, RG's, TZ's and RS's? I bet Kawasaki, BMW and Suzuki wish they could build a factory bike as quick as Honda's privateer.

MotoGP » ‘The lap time difference was 0.3 second’


V4Poweeeer: Yep most would have loved to have run 32 sec behind the race winner, come to think about it running within 32 sec would have been a top ten result. But hey most forget that how stretched out 500cc and 990cc races were by the end of a race. Sure there were some good battles but hey we still get good battles today.
Yep, the biggest problem with this site most didn't watch those era's and try to imagine GP as something its not, even the daft lads (not mentioning a certain American) who go on about CRT's being slow, the private bikes at best were in their league.

MotoGP » ‘The lap time difference was 0.3 second’


Codger: Why even mention the 0.3 thing? It was obviously a misunderstood, misreported, misquoted lie the day that it was said......and nothing has changed since. Honda gave the Aussie a 'jolly' and then tried to make a story out of it. The media lapped it up, and then did it for them. Don't overlook the fact that the 'story' could just as easily have been told the other way round. ie......"Man that factory Honda is slow, it's only 0.3 faster than the cobbled together customer bike."
If I was a journalist I wouldnt have mentioned it again, too embarrassing.

Mate, why would you want or need a single manufacture championship? Let all the factories in, lets have a manufactures championship. Not a Honda lock out. If Honda had not suggested or offered to supply, the FIM - Dorna would of had no choice but to have made it open to all.
You have a manufacturers championship, Tech3, Suter, Kalex, Speedup, and TSR this year, KLX as well if you want to count Forwards Kalex/FTR. None of these would be there if the manufacturers would have come in, this has also enabled them to move into Moto3 and short term Motogp. The engine deal was offered out to tender, only Honda came forward, Yamaha said they couldn't do it, now the engines are not maintained by the Geo/Honda tie up, but ExternPro at Aragon. Which will fall into Ezpeleta's plans if Honda throw a wobbly to buy a container full of CBR engines and do it internally

shamarone: re: "The '0.3s' phrase is brought up whenever the potential of the Production Honda is discussed" and as well it should be. however (comma) Naka-san prolly didn't say anything untrue. Gresini, Aspar (no comma) and Abraham simply DON'T have that bike. the kit that runs 0.3s off...? yeah, that costs considerably MORE than what they've shelled out at this point. the goal was to save money remember. nobody can say they haven't saved, so really it's MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. saving money and being competitive with factory kit are TWO different things. repeat, saving money and being competitive with factory kit are TWO different things. you can't pay for only ONE of these items...? and then expect "free lunch" on the other...? this isn't a BOGO sale at the Tesco.
Nope they just don't have that rider. I would lap both bikes within 0.3 seconds, because I am not capable of pushing either bike to the limit
