F1 » Kate Walker: Nico’s alleged thoughtcrime


re: "I don't believe Nico admitted he purposefully crashed back of L.H or Nico intentionally crashed back of L.H." me neither, I do however believe he (Rosie) initiated an outside pass on lap 2 of 44 (that was clearly never going to work) which resulted in contact DAMAGING two cars both of which just so happen to belong to MERCEDES. even if they weren't bickering back and forth and this were the first incident of the season...? anybody who knows ME knows I consider this grounds enough to get you HANDED YOUR A$$... you don't take out your teammate EVER...!!! re: "It's racing accident..." ...on Alonso.

WSBK » Bimota confirms WSBK exit


CONT: look, BMW is a MULTIBILLION dollar company in real assets. perhaps worth a TRILLION in overall brand equity. if you come to them and say you need 1000 units...? well you're going to have a 1000 units coming out your FRIGGIN' EARS...! LOL what delivery schedule sir...? blocks of 10...? blocks of 25...? where do you want us to stack these crates...? :) but they weren't going to do any of this for "free lunch" or on credit. $10 mill is chump change to them, but you can't expect the Roundel to care f@#ckall about YOU or you're business unless you show them the money. they are the "PRODUCERS", they have the POWER. it's their PRODUCT, their LOGO, and they DAMN SURE ain't gonna let you tarnish it. if you choose to remember any one thing about BMW...? let it be that and you will know 90% of what you need to about that company.

WSBK » Bimota confirms WSBK exit


re: "S1 what was the gist of your take on things?" it was all about that 10 million. (10 million...? why so much s1...?) A: the heart of this bike was the BMW engine. logic dictates no engine (with associated electrics)...? hellllo mcfly.... NO BIKE...! so unless you penned a contract with Munich upfront for all 1000 units (approx 10k ea), there was no way on GOD's GREEN you could ever guarantee homologation without first securing your supply chain. even if you met the 1st deadline...? you could fail at the 2nd...? even if by some miracle you met both the 1st and 2nd...? you could fail at the 3rd. CONT:

WSBK » Bimota confirms WSBK exit


Q: Why the heck Dont these small manufacters have to produce the amout of bikes in percentage of their company s financial size? A: 'cause the powers that be (wilful and deliberate) put the SCREWS to them. they (the new owners of Bim) were never going to find $10 million dollars. if they already had that kind of scratch, you sure as hell aren't going to spend it on motorcycling...? you invest in REAL business that'll turn that into $100 million (tech stocks, blue chip, biomedical, commodities, etc) not in the "niche business of beggars". fantasy road racing will always be just that... a FANTASY.

MotoGP » Rossi ‘closer to goal’ heading to Silverstone


re: "There is not a single more important component than tires. If neither rider nor bike can manage tires correctly the results will suffer." it's no mystery guys. you can attend local club racing or a track day and see brand new tyres of all makes DESTROYED by bad settings/set up on production bikes. hell, I've done it. it's really quite normal. there's nothing special about MotoGP Bridgestones that makes them LESS susceptible to this. if anything all they're fancy engineering makes them MORE susceptible. 1 click off, 1 psi off, 1lb of spring rate off and yes, you'll go from P1 to P4. the law of NATCORK has already shown as much.
