BSB » Mallory Park eyeing BSB return

I am a fan of Mallory and think it is a great track for club meetings and the like but it is not up to BSB in my opinion due to the safety concerns, the facilities for s large crowd and the lengh of the circuit. Brands is just about my favorite track but I also think that the Indy circuit should not be used for BSB either again due to its length (ditto for Knockhill). I know they can't use the GP circuit as and when they want but I think a 3rd of the rounds at one circuit is not quite right in any case. Ideally I would like to see 12 rounds at 12 different circuits (even though I love Oulton). My fantasy BSB season would be (no particular order): Brands GP Outlon Cadwell Snetterton Silverstone Donnington Assen Thruxton Anglesey (work required but could be up to the job) Rockingham Castle Combe (A couple of corners that need runoff work which would also allow them to get rid of the Bybrook chicane. Circuit of Wales (If it ever gets built!)

MotoGP » Riders want changes after ‘dangerous’ pit start

I think the simple solution is to make a slight amendment to the rule and make any pitlane starters line up single file. The order should be the order they arrive at the end of pitlane after making their stop (you can't race to the end of the pitlane anyway due to the speed limit). All it needed was a bit of order rather than the 'bun fight' and all would be fine. The guys that went to the grid proper still get the advantage (as they should) and the pitlane starters get away safely .

WSBK » FIM, Dorna to clamp down on ‘towing’?

Just a thought... How the hell do you even define a tow? Is 50 yards a tow and 51 not? If you are catching someone slower than you on a fast lap and get to a certain point are you then getting to tow? I get the need to do something about people cruising around waiting to latch onto a quick guy as it can be dangerous but I would think you can deal with that under 'rider standards' and ensure people conduct themselves properly on track in qualifying sessions. There is already a penalty points system in place so you could attach that to poor track craft offences. BTW LOL about the Barbera post!

MotoGP » Ducati likely to lease rather than sell

Leasing just the engine and building your own chassis might not work as well as you might imagine as some people (respected in the sport and know for more than I do!) seem to think the angle of the banks of cylinders is the biggest problem which will not let you get the weight distridution where you need it whatever you do chassis wise. I am not qualified to comment either way but it is a though that is out there. It will be interesting to see if the engine is a different configuration next year.

F1 » Rosberg: 'Megaphone exhaust' made no change

At the end of the day things change all the time in motorsport. It is the job of the teams and engineers to make the fastest car they can within the rules given to them. It is not their job to make them sound nice! When I first heard the new cars my feeling was that something had been lost but as I get used to it I am not thinking about it anymore. The other issue to consider is that probably the biggest threat to circuits at the moment is noise problems so maybe its not a bad things to make a bit less noise. We might all be able to keep watching racing in the future rather than tick off the list of circuits as they get closed down one by one. Just a thought...
