MotoGP » MotoGP to remove artificial grass, reconsider flag-to-flag


Brain:
Rockstar84: The flag to flag, should not be disturbed though. The brains over brawn factor makes the races alot more interesting, as witnessed in the last race. Or do Repsol Honda need some assistance in making the call for bringing in their riders?!
Agree, but Honda does seem to struggle with decision making when it comes to leaving the track on time. Phillip Island 2013 and Aragon 2014 has cost them two probable wins because of their tunnel vision.
thats the point...success should be a function of good thinking and decision-making, as well as good engineering. flag-to-flag should STAY IN! HRC can very easily help marquez make better decisions: HRC should fit a blinky red light on the dashboard that flashes brightly when the tire-temps drop too low to be safe. they already have tire-temperature sensors on the bike for TC...use that data elsewhere!

MotoGP » Hayden: Open, Factory, Factory 2… it’s confusing


it's all semantics. i dont know why there need to be formal subclasses. motogp just needs to be 1 class, with various technical "penalties" that apply based on success (or lack thereof). there are many motor-racing categories where someone that starts dominating gets a weight penalty. why not have the same thing apply here? penalties can include: lower fuel allowance, higher minimum weight, fewer tire options, lower RPM limits, even lower fuel-flow rates, etc.

WSBK » FIM issues Bimota homologation statement


i think some sort of adjustment factor should be available to support small marques such as bimota. perhaps use a "total unit production for all models" to establish a large-scale manufacturer to which the current wsbk thresholds apply. likewise much smaller production overall production numbers would identify the smaller firms and there would be a much lower threshold for wsbk entry.
