MotoGP » Silverstone ‘extremely disappointed’ to lose 2015 MotoGP


TalentFan: That'd be fun, wouldn't it!
Oh yes, but you are the one who does the name calling, again!
TalentFan: Its got better roads infrastructure than many international circuits (Donny and Mugello for definite) and its location is sa not more than 3 hours or so travel for the majority of people.
The A465??? with just about everybody heading east?? With anybody using the M4 incurring crazy prices?? Donny never pulled in the crowds since 90, can't see Ebbw Vale doing any better.

MotoGP » Silverstone ‘extremely disappointed’ to lose 2015 MotoGP


trummy200: Its become a right rip off. The whole event is tailored for the corporate scene and thats all that seems important .
Another person saying this, those who attend through a corporate hospitality make up maximum 1% of the crowd whether it be through the circuit or VIP village which anyone can attend, they take up about the same % of area. The MINIMUM cost for these is just under £500, so they are paying a little bit more, those who rent the Silverstone boxes are obviously paying a lot more. A lot of people you see wandering around with passes (dressed up for no reason) are guests of the teams/sponsors so nothing to do with the price of the tickets. But its all about sales and courting new business from in and outside the sport or courting new sponsors to keep the sport or their businesses/teams alive. Where at Silverstone this weekend did it give you the evidence the event was more for the corporate side than those in the general stands. Corporate

WSBK » I expect significant improvements, says Laverty


The WSB Suzuki use Motec, the GP bike did use Mitsubishi 2D, obviously the new GP bike will be using Marelli but I believe with software from the 2D people, so the same strategies may filter down. Avintia tried Motec in their first year CRT bike and not very good results, anything that Hernandez achieved was down to him because that bike was like a bucking broncho through the corners as you could hear the power coming in and out. Although they still seem to suffer in the corner with the Marelli, but ast least its controlled.

MotoGP » Silverstone ‘extremely disappointed’ to lose 2015 MotoGP


CliffEdge: A couple of years back I went to the last MotoGP event at Estoril and it cost €10.50 to get in!
There was a reason for that, they had to pay Dorna no matter what so they staged the race and knew that no-one would turn up unless they gave discounted prices, so it was better to have some paying €10 rather than no-one paying €50. Donny did a similar thing in the 90's although not that cheap.

The 465 between Abergavenny and Gilwern must hold the record for the longest road building program in history. Strange though, the only way to the land is use the 465 from Merthyr or Abergavenny, so it doesn't really matter if you use the 470 or the 40 or 465 to get to it, you will still have the snarl up on the 465. I can just imagine the Gilwern and Abergavenny roundabout now, its no different to the A43, so its either east or west on the 465. The 465 Hereford not an ideal route for heavy traffic nor is the 4042 till Pontypool, so most going east (which will be most) will end up heading heading to Monmouth or down to the Celtic Manor. I have only been to the Millennium stadium for the rugby so wouldn't know about the FA cup, usually I hang back in the bars at the stadium till its at least calmed a bit. A large portion of the last 15 years I have spent in Brecon, will be back there in a couple of weeks. But like most of the locals cannot understand why and do not believe it will happe

MotoGP » Donington Park to host 2015 British MotoGP


Thats exactly what COW is at the moment Tetley, however they want to play at developers as well. We have already seen what their influence does, where did FTR go? It will be interesting to see if they are leasing the track and doing their own organisation or contracting Donington to do the lot. When Silverstone won the GP rights which, was good insight Dorna, even though everyone knew DVLL would never raise the capital after Bernie's stitch up (CE could be doing the same), Silverstone invested £5m on track improvements, be nice if someone did that at Donny with at least some rollers, drainage and a few tonnes of grass seed.
