MotoGP » Silverstone to boast 182km/h MotoGP lap?


we must remember that Philip Island is different than the new Silverstone in terms of characteristics, i believe the race is not as close as we might hope. Philip Island (and 'old' Assen) characterised by long, fast, fluid corners with gentle kinks between straights, which allows slower bikes to be "towed" by faster bikes. this arrangement also provides variety of racing lines (just have a look at Mugello). contrast with the new Silverstone, which characterised by long straights with many fast turns before slow ones, hence the high average speed (this arrangement very much like Sepang). i believe Sepang is the best indicator on how close racing is at the new Silverstone will be.

MotoGP » Silverstone reveals new MotoGP layout.


this layout is somewhat similar unveiled somewhere 8 years ago, as a part revamp for F1 after criticism by BE. i notice some difference - the (proposed) F1 layout has no gentle kink before the the sharp bend into the National Straight, and the pits is relocated to the straight after the Club corner, which itself turned into a sweeping, banked corner with Vale corner removed from its entry. whatever it is, i am glad that MotoGP got the taste of this layout instead (albeit slightly modified from the F1 proposal) and it looks really promising indeed!

MotoGP » FIM urged to make MotoGP changes.


could not agree more, except would like to eliminate pneumatic valves. this would drive the cost down and attract more manufacturer to come in. the technology is so expensive to be developed and not all manufacturer has the expertise. to further cut costs, don't focus on standardised equipment but instead set certain parameters on each equipment and introduce competition to its supply (take wtcc with its gearbox supply as the best example). just back to basics - pure and simple...
