WSBK » EXCLUSIVE: Loris Baz - Q&A Interview


Looked to me as though Baz slowed pace a little, Tom wasn't within striking distance, and Baz said "Ef it." Maybe he should have just pitted and showered. That would have been a nice statement I think. Here ya go team, I'm outta here. I also don't believe that Twitter and pints are a good match. No proof of course, just a hunch. I'm not a pro racer so I'll never know, but seems like a cool job to have, so long as you pad your savings and not your garage with toys because eventually it all falls down.

MotoGP » Barbera: Kawasaki 'fooled' us over MotoGP plans


Yeah, it really is too bad, you could have been fighting for 12ths instead of 15ths. Seriously, what difference does it make? Oh, wait, I forgot, MotoGP was running 2 classes simultaneously this year. Right. You could have been fighting for a make believe podium of the "also rans". Nope, they only had the top box for that "class". So again, what difference does it make? When Ducati is a backmarker in some races what chance does your team have? Fix MotoGP!!!

WSBK » Dorna: We need to go to growing markets


Personally, I could care less if an American is racing in a series if they are simply fodder (MotoGP) so I'll bring this to the Dorna philosophy - do fans really care if they know they're rider hasn't a chance of being competitive? I'll agree with TF and The Prof here, improve the product, give me (Americans) the chance to stream the series (hey, make it cheap enough, maybe $50 a season) and watch the revenue roll in. For the record, MotoGP is a bloated beast - why have second tier bikes in a "premier" class? Shouldn't they all be "the best" or have the chance to prove it? I've loved WSBK for quite a while, maybe someone can figure out what appears to be simple math to the rest of us.

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


I'm going to have agree with Talent Fan again on this one. I know, many of you have already hit the disagree button before even reading anymore. Shouldn't "The Pinnacle" be anyone's game? Starting a year with only 4 hopeful champions doesn't seem so great to me. As a matter of fact, MotoGP.com LOST me as a subscriber. So that would be me telling the powers that be that I no longer rate their decisions as "good". At least I have done something. Perhaps manufacturers don't wish for equality, either between companies or riders, but that is where Dorna or otherwise steps in and demands entrance to field no less than 3 equivalent machines. And any team leasing, etc. gets the full package to play with. After all, if the machine is truly that great, then we would have a Honda 1, 2, 3 this year. Wouldn't a company want that? And please don't play the pricetag card. How can designing and manufacturing two different bikes be more cost effective than one? The lease price goes higher?

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


Memory lane is a very scenic street. It should be a historical site. Thank goodness we pave new roads every now and again. Now I'm going to go in the lane marked "Only 4 riders allowed". That seems like a good road for me to take, oh wait, I've been predetermined to be a backmarker. As to MM, I don't think anyone doubts his greatness, but as mentioned, the fans are suffering as we perhaps feel robbed of true dog fights and title fights by the occassional surprise. Cream rises to the top, but now and then it goes sour. Seems as though MM could ride with any one of our legends, but sans a few corners of true grit from Rossi the race is more formality. Again I question, if these riders are the top riders in world, and this series reflects that (perhaps that is only a fan's interpretation and there in lies the problem?) then shouldn't we have more competitive bikes? Let's not look to the past so much, but look to the future. If YOU were designing a series, wouldn't you want

WSBK » Guintoli wins as team orders come into play


Crashmaster: This has just ruined the championship! Team orders should not be allowed, the whole point of racing is to see who is the best, now for me if Sykes or Guinters win the championship it will be a sham.... Marco was still mathematically capable of winning the championship, so should be able to ride to win... this is outrageous Boo to WSBK :(
This would never happen in MotoGP! (where is that tongue in cheek emoticon?)
