MotoGP » POLL: Should Marc Marquez be penalised?


Normally I would have said no penalty however Alex Lowes in BSB was penalised a race win for a manouvre that was no better or worse than the one that Marquez pulled on Pedrosa that lead to him crashing out. Rules across motorsport should be implemented equally or they may as well not be there so if the penalty against Lowes is correct & legal Marquez should also receive a penalty, If however Marquez is not penalised the penalty against Lowes must be reversed.

WSBK » Rea breaks femur, says lack of flags ‘unbelievable’


This is not the first time the training & actions of non UK marshals have been called into question. Something needs to happen & soon! The UK has probably the best marshals both Racesafe for bikes & MSA for the rest in the world. There is no reason other than ignorance or indifference to prevent the rest of the world raising their standards to the ones used in the UK. We are talking racer & crowd safety for this we should accept nothing less than the best because when the worst happens the lives of the racers & crowd rest in the hands of marshals.

MotoGP » 'Back to square one' for Ben Spies


Sorry to have to say this but you begin to think that with the amount of really good riders currently looking for next years rides sooner or later Pramac will soon decide to cut their losses and release Ben from his contract. Don't forget that its only a little over a year ago that Scott Redding tested the Desmo and put in lap times that were faster than any of this years 4 riders have managed since.

MotoGP » 2014 MotoGP ECU rules updated


Only time will tell if this leads to fuller grids with better racing. HOWEVER Could I just point your memories back a few years to when the last time this kind of arrangement was allowed by the rules. Remember the Roberts KRV ( Not the V3 that they used when the rules banned leased engines). Honda RSV5 990 engines in a Roberts designed & built chassis and Roberts electronics. Not only were these bikes ***** fast but they often won races beating the factory Repsol bikes in the process. Done right these new rules could be amazing but lets be honest anything is better than the dwindling grids we had before the introduction of CRT

MotoGP » 2014 MotoGP ECU rules updated


@ Nate44 Essentially that is what the factories will be allowed to do & indeed Ducati has already confirmed that they are going to do. In the case of Yamaha they have already confirmed they will be supplying Forward with complete 2014 machines, Forward will however be running the spec ECU so will not be a "factory" team. The only difference is that any team running these bikes will have to do so using the spec ECU as supplied sealed by DORNA and will not be allowed to produce their own software for it like the factory teams can. These teams can then take advantage If however for example team X buys the 2013 GP13 Ducati and puts its own software on the ECU they will be classified as a team X factory status and will have to run the reduced fuel amount & lower engine units available.

MotoGP » 2014 MotoGP ECU rules updated


@ akaDan10 It is believed that Forward racing will be using a complete Yamaha bike but with spec ECU software. Ducati have also said that they are willing to supply the complete "factory" spec GP13 to teams in 2014 but with the full spec ECU fitted instead of factory software. The real unknown is if Aprilia will step up to become a full prototype, It is common knowledge that the RSV4 superbike started its design life as a MotoGP bike but was repurposed as a production bike when MotoGP switched to 800s & you have to believe that Aprilia still has the tech sat somewhere ready to roll out a prototype again

F1 » Silverstone defends kerbs amid tyre crisis


@ Saintsman Last years tyres were not crossply they were radial the same as this years. What has changed since last year is last year the tyres had a kevlar belt under the tread where this years have a steel belt. The other change is this years tyres recently had a change to the tread bonding process in reaction to the delaminations that occurred early this season. With regards to the support races interesting question & one that is answered easily. All the support classes use control spec tyres that are fitted, inflated & set by the tyre supplier at whatever pressure they reccomend. unlike the control tyre in F1 the teams can not change the tyre pressures they run what they are given. The more information that comes out about these punctures the more it points to teams using less than recommended tyre pressures allowing the sidewall to roll more in the corners, these then wear quickly because they are not supposed to be a contact surface & eventually they give in.

F1 » Silverstone defends kerbs amid tyre crisis


Silverstone has not been resurfaced or had new kerbs placed since last year when the new layout track was first used for F1 & there was not a problem with tyres then. Problem has to lay either at the construction of the tyres or at the teams themselves if what was said during the Sky commentary was true. According to the sky commentary Pirelli advised teams to run between 15 & 17 psi pressure in the tyres but some teams were running as low as 13psi. Lower pressure gives more grip but also allows sidewalls to run lower sometimes becoming an extension of the contact surface, If this happens the sidewall will give in fairly quickly.
