WSBK » PTR scraps WSBK plans, looks to BSB


re: "PTR team manager Simon Buckmaster says has come about as a result of the factory teams having too much influence." well they only manufacture all the kit don't they...? Dorna manufactures f#@ckall. we're consumers, they're PRODUCERS. it's only logical. (Liam talking to Marco from Tropoja) re: "There is a cap on electronic costs but in reality after the companies have clawed back the loss of the sale of the hardware in service charges this will not save as much as it should" this was always going to happen. re: “With this in mind we may have to drop our ambitions to move up to the Superbike class in the World Championship." not the worse decision. be thankful there's an alternative. if you were stateside you wouldn't even have that. re: "Put simply, without a much larger budget we simply could not compete." the way of the world innit...? none of this is unique to motorbikes or motorsports. you'd have this problem even if you were coaching footballers or advertising widgets.

MotoGP » 50-year-old McWilliams talks grand prix return!


this has the making's of a OG Legends match race. I can see it now Foggy V Bayliss V Schwantz V Checa V Biaggi V Corser V Capirossi V Jezza V Edwards V Mammola V Doohan V Barros V Ago V Whitham V Mladin V Hodgson V Duhamel all going hammer/tongs for a few laps (3-5?) on equally prepped proddy 250's. schedule this to run at your least attended rounds of whatever series and it'll fill the stands...!!! hire extra polizei and security for those days, it's a guaranteed mob up. proceeds on this won't go to ALS (no slate, but this ain't no ice bucket challenge), proceeds will go to charities that are uniquely our OWN... like the "charity" of motorcycling itself (this is how we treat it) or say the Marco Simoncelli Foundation.

MotoGP » Redding waiting on Gresini for MotoGP 2015


Q: Why not...what the hell has 2014 got to do with leasing (?) A: everything. "the "hell" 2014 has got to do with leasing is it's a time marker. a "carbon date" if you will noting that not only have 12 years elapsed since 4T kit was introduced...? but Honda isn't any more interested in parity between factory and it's customers in the 21st century...? than they were when fire breathing 500's "roamed the earth".

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow: Trading places


re: "Hmm. A MotoGP rider admitting he does not brake very well. Is it just me or do others find this strange as well?" not so much. king Kenny wasn't big on this either. just wasn't his style. since both entry and exit "events" are unavoidable parts of negotiating turns for everybody, he simply preferred placing emphasis on the EXIT. which would stand to reason if you're fundamentally a dirt tracker, where you would've quickly come to learn... objects NOT on the gas are LOSING.
