WSBK » WSBK to resume with 24 entries


8 weeks break is too much IMHO. I can understand 3 weeks for a half way point, but 8 weeks toward the end? Still, I'd rather watch WSBK than MotoGP. Agreed with Martin's comments above, even out the field a little more and don't blame the series for a manufacturer's lack of production. I was happy they were there, and I'd bet they were too. Now they can go back and work on next year's bike and start that production! Hoping this series gets a few pissed off MotoGP pilots that will never get that factory/competitive bike in GP to defect. List of names might include: Hayden Bradl Smith just for starters.

MotoGP » Home roar for Redding, builds Factory case

Spinach: Am I missing something?
Yes, the understanding of the different classes in GP racing.
No, I get that, but from what I recall, he wasn't heads and shoulders above anyone else in that "class", was he? He had a great weekend, but many riders have great weekends here and there. Seems to me as though he and Nicky are pretty much equals on this pig, and we all know how "non-impressive" Nicky is, so why is Scott so much "better"? That is what I am missing.

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'left everything on the track'


Pfft! At this stage, Lorenzo should be throwing it down the track rather than settling for 2nd. He is not going to win the title, so truly, what does he have to lose? Who cares who comes in 2nd or 3rd in the championship unless you are a rookie or on a satellite bike. I respect his skills, don't get me wrong, and he has shown his former greatness, but there is no winning riding his normal game.

V4Poweeeer:Meanwhile moto2 and moto3 are oversubscribed for next season though and added two slots to each grid.
Probably because they see Dorna killing off WSBK (headlights, two classes within a race, really?) My guess (as I have no knowledge in this arena) is that those spots are filled with slight built Spanish boys racing on scooter sized bikes.

Nicky is a former world champ who's ridden many different bikes in his long motogp career. Scott is a rookie. Simple.
Indeed. The FACT is Hayden should be slaughtering Redding on the same bike - as did stoner when Hayden first got on the duc- that is hardly the case. But whattayouknow the Hayden fans are still believe that IF Hayden had a Repsol Honda he could get

OK, fair enough. So the feeling is Nicky is doing well and Scott is at the same level as Nicky? I'm not a NH fanboy (although I hate all the * next to his title by some), but from what I can see, there are two riders getting the most out of the same bike, finishing roughly

kenfaustus: Hayden will be on the bike soon, so we shall see from here on, wont we.
we will be lucky to see him back and completive his time is over with that wrist, 5 opps and still not right doesn't sound good
Of course, a new - and perfect - excuse of "wristy not worky" ! Exactly 20 years ago "Schwantz defies the pain barrier: British Grand Prix: World motorcycling champion shrugs off Doohan's challenge and distraction of a broken wrist to clinch victory" see: www.sportrider.com/sportbikes/racing-while-injured-damaged-goods Hayden has complained his wrist "bothers him" & does did not have "full" movement (Doohan was unable to use a foot brake) and its an excellent excuse for mediocre performance now & rest of the season in order to wait out til 2015 and "git mo'e powa". In any case, now he's taken his time to recover, do fisio, we shall see how he measures against Redding or wrist

MotoGP » Factory engine for 2015 Open Honda


In the end, barring rain and multiple crashes, only 4 (6) bikes can make it to the podium. 0.3 seconds per lap is really not racing, is it, , , , , , , , IMHO, a better solution would be each factory MUST produce and enter 4 identical bikes - two teams of 2 bikes each or whatever. Satellite should really be Factory in a different color. If the riders are truly the greatest (MM, etc) then they are not afraid of losing to a lesser rider on the same bike. And a great rider (MM, etc) would make up the difference between machines of different make if say "Honda" was a better product than "Ducati" (or whatever). So the podium would still have different manufacturers. Would be nice to see everyone (even Rookies) getting a fair shake. At least NOW they can once again be gifted a Factory ride. Enough of this numbers for numbers sake, I want racing!!!
