WSBK » World Superbike set for Saturday afternoon race in 2016


peppone: So let's recap - Dorna have apparently 'consulted' with everybody EXCEPT those that the series was intended for, the paying fans. Nothing new there, these folks in positions of 'influence' did not get there by taking on-board the views of others. Of course it's an utter disaster waiting to happen - I pity those people that need to work (or even leave the house) on a Saturday. Given that MotoGP has high technique but (mainly) low racing and is seemingly dominated by kids whose parents apparently attempt to achieve glory through their offspring I do wonder where we will be in a few years time. Likewise this has nothing to do with 'sport' and everything to do with money. But then again, of course that's why we all ride motorbikes, isn't it - love of cash ? Obvious really...
Couldn't have said it better myself, and didn't. This is by far the best reply yet and i completely agree with you.

Motojunky: We (the fans of motorcycle racing) have mostly been thought of as 2nd class citizens by the general public. Now Dorna has jumped on the bandwagon by not taking us into consideration. Never before have I seen such a unanimous response to an article on CRASH all saying the same. Let's hope they (Dorna) have the backbone to consider the die hard people that actually go to the venues, instead of pandering to the marketing people who can only see the dollars in TV rights and advertisement. Money talks, so I doubt we will be considered.
I agree completely. We will not be going to any races next year and I will not pay for a subscription to watch it either. Shame we've been going every year since the late 90s.

F1 » Hamilton explains change responsible for dip in form


here4thesun2: “What we have will go on to next year. I think they said they [Mercedes] don't think they made the car particularly slower, but it definitely isn't faster. And we can't go back to what it was before because they don't want to go back to what it was before.” Not sure what he means here, but I don't think he knows what he means either. This says Merc made a change to make the car slower and are happy to remain slower. And that Merc do not want to revert because they are against reverting on principle.
Or for legal reasons?
