IndyCar » Chevy teams grow restless with Bernard


It would be a huge mistake to get rid of Randy Bernard now. He's been the one most responsible for the big improvements in the series this year. All of the races so far have been quite good , and as Crash says, television ratings and race attendance numbers are up. The competition has been better than anything in recent years. He was given a near impossible task when he took over and should be given credit for what he's done. There is still room for improvement, but kudos to Randy so far.

MotoGP » Austin MotoGP in doubt?


You guys should read the lawsuit that Tavo Hellmund, the man behind the Austin track, filed against the current owners. The suit speaks more to the F1 race and the reasons for the delays in paying sanctioning fees and other problems. However, it's very relevant to what's going on with the Moto GP race. If the allegations are factual, the owners, who have no interest in racing, have eased Hellmund out of the picture. This is where the "contract issues" come into play. It would be sad to see a potentially good race venue lose a Moto GP race because of some CVC holdings-type people.

MotoGP » Team stability key for Ben Spies


Someone said they hope Ben can get better starts this year, as he seems to come on late in the race. That may work to his advantage. I read an article at the Speed Channel website that said tire management will be a bigger issue with the new bikes. Those that can keep their tires under them will have a big advantage. In any case, best of luck to Ben.

MotoGP » What's the story? Rossi and Ducati (2)


@Mac83. You're absolutely right about the inability of Rossi to come to grips with the Ducati. This whole article, while very interesting, merely shows how skillful Casey Stoner is. I believe he won more races in the era than anyone else. A recent article in Road Racing World explained Casey's technique in making the Ducati corner fast and quoted Jeremy Burgess as saying that no one but Casey could ride it like that. The R.R.W. article goes a long way toward explaining why Casey crashed a little more often than the others. He was closer to , or over the limit more often than the other riders. Next season it will be interesting to see if Rossi can make a competitive bike out of a turd.

F1 » Austin F1 race in doubt as work halted


I think the comments about wasting taxpayers money are off target. I understand that some of these same public monies are used to promote other big events in Texas. There's no reason why they shouldn't be used for F1. The real problem is that F1 in the U.S. is completely insignificant and always will be. I would just as soon see them fold now and avoid more embarrassment for the U.S.
