WSBK » WSBK Imola - Race results (2)

Ten-Kate do not use HRC electronics, they use Cosworth (They did use HRC code last year) and who is to say they are any worse than anybody else'? Cosworth have a good track record as does Mr Pike. Whilst they do not have HRC stuff they have the full backing (ie money) from Honda Europe, which is no small amount. Whilst Rea is a fantastic rider and clearly better than his vastly over-rated team mate, lets not forget that the level of electronics in these non-evo bikes is as or higher than Motogp, they have GPS for a start. The Kawasaki is full blown system as is the Aprilia and Ducati use last years Motogp with some legal (not in Motogp) additions. If it wasn't for Kawasaki and Aprilia there would be less electronics in WSB this year. I am sure some people will still say that Marquez with less rider aids has less talent.

WSBK » WSBK Imola - Race results (2) I think they did lead you astray, Rea had HRC backing at that time and was using their code, Nakamoto threatened it because he wanted freedom to develope HRC hardware and software and knew Flamini's wouldn't object as they didn't with Aprilia, Kawasaki, BMW and Ducati, it was short lived though. They have used Cosworth for years now.

MotoGP » Pirelli: No plans to make MotoGP tyre bid

Objective: As Pirelli found out in F1, supplying tyres to a very specific specification is a lose/lose proposition for the company. They make the tyres they are told to make and then cop all the bad publicity when it goes pear-shaped. It certainly doesn't help their own R&D when the restrictions on compounds etc are so tight.
The difference in Motogp they are not told to make the tyre degenerate after a few laps, Pirelli's tyres in WSB are made optimum for 5 laps to even out the competition. The difference is the teams shell out over 100k for those tyres.

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 » Marquez not tempted by new bike challenge

Dear oh dear still struggling to spot real talent? Have you ever been to an away bike race? Even if you are watching it to see how rubbish it is, yeah right, you are still registering as a viewer and still helping those viewing figures which add to the popularity figures of the sport, as is commenting on it. Best not watch at all or comment, then it might go away.
