F1 » McLaren announcement set for Thursday


Taipan: I'm seriously thinking about following the WEC next season is the UK TV coverage any good? I'm not quite ready to give up on F1 just yet but I think it's time to explore other avenues.
You should do it Tai, drivers are actually allowed to race against each other plus you quite often see this wierd thing where drivers genuinely smile and interact with each other!

F1 » OFFICIAL: McLaren names Alonso, Button as 2015 F1 line-up


scenic: The only reason Alonso pushed for Button is because he knows he's quicker than him. Why else? Mag more of an unknown quantity.
I don't think so, I think Alonso wanted Button becuase of his knowledge and set up abilities so they can work together to make the car a strong, race winning and possibly championship winning package. That would be tough, but not impossible challenge, for someone with only a season of F1 under their belt. Pleased they retained Magnussen, even if it is in a test/reserve driver form.

BSB » TAS set for Laverty, Bridewell and BMW?


Abefan: i hate to say it but apart from in the rain, Waters didnt really impress that much and as for Hopkins????????????
I'd disagree with your statement about Waters. Although he was superb in wet conditions, in the dry he made good progress in the second half of the season and ended the year with 11 top 8 finishes from the final 14 races including 6 top 5's. Following these results the next step for Waters was to begin to challenge for the podium. As for Hopkins, I spoke with James Haydon about him at Donington and he simply said he just isn't attaining a good enough level of fitness to challenge at the front. :(

BSB » TAS set for Laverty, Bridewell and BMW?


Abefan: You must have a very short memory cos he was a front runner on the honda when it was starting to show its age a bit, and he has hardly disgraced himself the last two years in GPs riding a slug. If the bike is the business then he will be a top 6 man next year. Considering who he will be racing against thats hardly gonna be easy.
There's nothing wrong with my memory I know he was a front runner, you don't win 7 BSB races and have another 20 or so podiums by not being at the front, but he was never consistent enough to really challenge for the title. Posters on here always want more young talent to come through and to progress, well M.Lav isn't the answer there I'm afraid.

BSB » TAS set for Laverty, Bridewell and BMW?


Yossarian:
JedPB67: If this suggested line up is true they could have picked someone better than M.Laverty
Who ?
If they'd acted quicker they could have had anyone. James Westmoreland, Lee Jackson, Joe Burns, Josh Waters, Filip Backlund, Glenn Irwin, Luke Jones, Josh Elliott, Kyle Ryde, Andy Reid and that's just riders in the BSB paddock. People always saying on here how "we need more young talent coming through like Crutchlow, Camier, Rea and Lowes", but when TAS sign M.Lav everyone just seems to say it's a good call.

BSB » TAS Racing confirms end of Suzuki relationship


Greavesit: I wasn't asking for a current portfolio. I know they don't have a BSS rider, but they do on the roads. It says factory backed by BMW. would that not be classed as official?
Just because it's factory backed, doesn't mean it's official. Besides BMW don't make a 600 so what can they have to grumble about if the team ran a Honda or a Yamaha in Supersport? BMW wouldn't be footing the bill for that bike, it'd be the sponsors, team and rider that would. M.Dunlop rode for the BMW as a factory rider last year on the roads, but ran Honda in the 600 races. He also did the same when he was factory backed by Kawasaki in 2011, but ran a Yamaha in 600's.
