MotoGP » Ellison hails potential of PBM Aprilia


motogp should run on steel and/or ferrous metal disc brakes, and outlaw carbon brakes altogether. that alone, not only would lower costs tremendously but also encourage close racing (especially under braking) and make motogp more relevant to the public and manufacturers. face facts - electronics in motogp have found its way to road going bikes. but carbon brakes?

MotoGP » Chile announces plans for MotoGP track


@ Mick like it or not, this is a signature of tilke-designed tracks. while i admit his tracks did not generate much spectacle due to this kind of layout, the fault also lies in the race machine themselves - especially those which brakes lightning-quick like F1 or have loads of electronics like MotoGP. but now i can say tilke has learned his lesson - just look at Buddh International Circuit and Motorland Aragon, easily racers' and fans' favourite. not easy to ride/drive on the limit, yet very enjoyful. i just hope this trend will continue. honestly, i don't really care who design the tracks as long as the track produces great racing and tests the racers' limit.

MotoGP » Chile announces plans for MotoGP track


@ shamarone there is another famous track designer in case you never heard of him - Alan Wilson. he designs tracks like Barber Motorsports Park, Miller Motorsports Park, even he was responsible for the upgrade work on Mont-Tremblant (which i consider the best place for F1 in Canada and not Montreal). to those who deride Tilke, bear in mind - of course he produced many of bland tracks, but i think he learned his lesson well. just look at Buddh International Circuit, instantly a drivers' and fans' favourite. even if it means he will design many future tracks, i just hope this trend will continue for a long time.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: India next for MotoGP


forget about all those politics, forget about their little tradition in motor racing. the first thing for motogp (or even f1) to succeed in india - do they have a strong fan base? look at malaysia for the finest example - not a big market for superbikes as majority motorcycles are in form of moped or scooters. yet the malaysian GP are still there since 1991 thanks to a strong fan base and its popularity with the riders. provided india can do the same, i do not see any reason why motogp cannot be successful in india.

F1 » French GP deal for 2013 to be signed imminently?


@ Ro-dan I share the same sentiment as you. why need to alternate with another gp from another country? it would be a better sense to have spanish gp shared between catalunya and valencia. trackwise, i think they make the right choice. forget about all those conflict of interest at the first place - on the paper, paul ricard is a better track than magny-cours (only le mans is the best of all). should this is true, then i would look forward to see the cars roaring along the mistral straight.

MotoGP » Moto2 progress report: 2010 - 2011


while i truly understand why some here prefer moto2 to follow WSS footsteps by having free choice of engines and electronics together with freedom to tune the engines, i have to say it will kill this class by itself should that happen. engine, like the chassis, could be the silver bullet or the achilles heel for the teams and riders. any move to support expansive competitiveness in development (especially in the engine and electronics) can cause huge cost escalations. like we see in Marquez case in 2011, he would certainly run away with the title should the freedom of engine choice and its tuning is granted, since he has the backing of Repsol and that alone will give him advantage when it comes to the budget for tuning. at that point of time, moto2 will become like what 250 was - 2-3 horse race instead of 12 horse race. so which one you prefer then - single-engine multi-chassis class similar to formula ford in car racing, or multi-engine multi-chassis like formula three?
