MotoGP » Crutchlow: Moto2 not best feeder ground for MotoGP

There isn't much to argue against the case of Moto2. How many riders in the field have graduated to MotoGP from a Superbike? 5. Technically 4, as Petrucci came from EU STK1000 and only 3 from the WSB paddock...also none of them have a WSB title. How Many have graduated by coming through Moto2? 11, 3 of them with a Moto2 title to their name. It might not be an ideal class to prepare riders for MotoGP, but as it currently stands it does a better job than any other class in the world.

F1 » FIA to study closed-cockpit concepts

JayT: Throughout the 60s and 70s everyone said the same thing until too many drivers were killed or severely maimed. Life is more important than our entertainment.
I think it goes without saying that nobody wants any racer to lose their life racing, it's a tragic event for spectators, fellow drivers and mainly the drivers family. However, as a racer myself that is a major part of the excitement and the thrill of heading out on the circuit. The old adage that one feels most alive when closest to death is certainly true when it comes to racing a powerful machine. Every racer knows the potential risks involved and occasionally with a high powered sport, like Indycar, fatal accidents happen.

MotoGP » Moto2: Suter to support ‘at least four riders’ in 2016

KNC30: @Fluffers stop mentioning the Suter as if it has mythical features which make it superior to the Kalex Scott was riding why do you think so many people switched to Kalex because it's more rideable for more riders and the Suter is more difficult to setup right.
The Marc VDS team moved to Kalex because of the treatment Marquez/CatalunyaCaixa team received in 2011, they weren't happy that they were a second rate team when they could move to Kalex and be treated as equal. There were even rumours that the VDS team were considering a move away from Suter mid-season in 2011.

MotoGP » Smith talks 2016 Yamaha, 2017 factory seats

SendingOutOfSpace: bs does good atm but he had to fight hard over 5% so dont think you get a factory bike in 2017 bs. Moto2 and moto3 has good riders not to forget motogp riders
All the top Moto2 riders look set to move up from Moto2 with their current teams in 2017. Except Rabat who'll move up for next year. Pons is looking at a grid slot for 2017, in which he would place Rins. Rins is also up for this path. Ajo is rumoured to be the factory KTM team when they join in 2017. Zarco was the first rider on Pramac's list ahead of Redding or Kent, however Zarco stopped the negotiations to stay with Ajo for another year in Moto2 and then progres in to the Austrian factory slot. And Rabat will move up to MotoGP next year, if it's with VDS or Aspar depends on the contract details. Plus Aspar will run 2015 RC213V's next year.

MotoGP » Riders comment on Kent’s proposed MotoGP jump

rdc: The first year will be rough if he takes the GP15 at Pramac. The bike is top 5 material atm, and it won't get much updates for the tyre switch. That would be my concern in Kent's shoes
Top 5 material is great for GP rookie though. Kent might take to the Duc and the Michelin's in the same way that Iannone has (..albeit on BS's).
David Emmett wrote it on Motomatters as well as Asphalt and Rubber.

MotoGP » Moto2: Suter to support ‘at least four riders’ in 2016

FLtrooper: They should also have a spec frame. That could rule out all the kalex/mistral/suter/ bs and only the top riders will prevail.
The whole idea of Moto2 was to introduce MORE manufacturers in production of motorcycles as well as aftermarket companies into grand prix racing. Moto2 is basically a spec chassis class this year and we've only really had one entertaining race in Indianapolis. A lot of people have said this is the most boring season of Moto2 because it's been similar to MotoGP in the fact that we only have 4 riders capable of making the podium.
