MotoGP » Karel Abraham - Q&A


Karel is a credit and example to Motogp, he just gets on with the job, he was a great 250 rider but again never had the spec of Apriia he needed. The same people who slag him then praise riders like Haslam who has had more than his fair share of leg ups and done nothing, he even had a series set up just to get him in nationals. Great interview.

WSBK » Lowes: Ideally we’d have no electronics


shamarone: the answer is C, the rule for homologation got updated pre '09/pre spies. haga was the one caught using it when he and corser were teamed up on regular i4 R1's with Santander sponsorship.
Funny, you said it was banned, S1 admitting he was wrong?? It was actually 2010, it was well advertised who were using it on Ohlins site so no one was caught. It had been used in GP's before until it was banned in around 06, its original version was around 1991 as I remember. Flamini refused to ban it as he would do anything to get his championship as a development series, not a showcase, thus the level of electronics, hand made frames, any hole size will do etc got out of control to the point that the only resemble the shape of the road going version. The best years of WSB for racing were 89 till 93, that fateful day when Meklau turned up at Osterreichring with a 955 engine and walked the first leg (after being a back marker on his ROC)

WSBK » Lowes: Ideally we’d have no electronics


Williams were the first to use it when they were using the Honda engine, as far as I remember. Its referred to as electronic suspension in the regs as thus: The ECU for the electronic suspension must remain as homologated and cannot receive any motorcycle track position or sector information the suspension cannot be adjusted relative to track position. So it isn't really active, more re-active

BikeWatch: @RSMick Actually active suspension is banned in WSBK. It was allowed when Spies romped the field in 2009 but it is no longer available. Also I'm pretty sure GPS is allowed in MotoGP. Cal Crutchlow recently had a problem with his bike thinking he was at different corners of the track. Was it Qatar? Or COTA? Anywho, apologies if I'm mistaken.
It is banned in wsb unless fitted to the homologated model. GPS is banned in Motogp, they work out track postion using algorithms based on sequence of gear changes, revs etc.
