MotoGP » Valentino Rossi breaks engine limit, pit lane start


This could be an inspired move by Ducati & Rossi This season is now junk and Ducati know it BUT.... Testing restrictions may now be a thing of the past if Ducati choose to use the rest of the season for testing, Remember Rossi is seesntially using what will be the 2012 chassis, So this gives them the opportunity for thousands of miles of testing, trying new parts etc to ensure that next years bike is not the dismal failure this years has been. Now tell me Ducati & Rossi are unhappy about starting from the pitlane.

MotoGP » Rossi to try aluminium chassis at Aragon


@ fan Neither Rossi nor Ducati have ever said the problem is that a CF "chassis" can not be engineered either stiff or flexible enough, They have said from the word go that the riders have complained that a CF chassis does not give the riders enough "feel" I have never had a CF framed motorcycle but I do own 2 CF framed cycles and as good as they are they do not give me any real feedback of what is happening on the road. The limitation of CF ( at least as the technology is at the moment ) is that it is not very good at feedback, Something that aluminium is very good at. Preziosi said in an interview given to gpone.com that he expects that the experience gained from the use of an aluminium chassis will eventually allow them to engineer a different weave & construction to allow them to return to a version of CF that does transmit feel

BSB » Kiyonari: Difficult to win title now


The Kiyo we have seen in the last few races is not the one we are used to. Think the fact that he is only in the shootout because Brookes took Rutter out says everything. If Kiyo does not already have a contract in place with HM for next year he will be lucky to retain his ride with them because the team & their sponsors want wins.

WSBK » Toseland forced to quit racing due to injury


@ bri t It is not about just switching the throttle to the left hand. As his doctor's statement says he no longer has sufficient range of movement in his wrist to hold on to a bike while hanging off the side of it to corner. James WAS and to an extent still is a world class rider who made the mistake of switching to MGP when given the chance but he is not the first to do this and wont be the last. Whatever people think about James, The haters will always hate & say he never had the talent while some dedicated fans will never admit he made any mistakes, It is a shame to see any rider who performs at any level be forced to retire through injury but racing carries big risks and this sometimes happens.

WSBK » ParkinGO boss wants Yamaha WSBK role


@ Don-R I too heard the same rumours but anoyone thinking of laying their hopes at the door of Aprilia may find themselves on shaky ground. There has been talk in Italian media of Aprilia "considering their role" in WSBK as a factory team. Remember the RSV4 started its development as a MotoGP bike but that was changed when bikes went to 800's. Since the announcement that 1000's were returning there have been several comments made by top brass at Aprilia have made comments about how the RSV4 conforms to the 1000cc MGP rules, Recently strong rumours abound in Italian media that Aprilia will follow Ducati & Yamaha out of WSBK as a factory but will remain a supplier in order to return their focus on MGP. It would be very easy & cheap for them to supply a CRT team with "factory" equipment as a means to develop a full prototype machine
