WSBK » HAVE YOUR SAY: Who shone at gloomy Donington?


@ Cubikrube I agree. I want Donington to succeed and will support it whenever possible but you/one/we have to face facts regarding the financial climate - it's tough out there. I don't know but I suspect thet Donington were offered the event and took it despite the fact that perhaps they weren't really ready for it. I also think Badovini will rise to the top given time. One additional point however......how many starters are needed to make a race? I think there has to be some form of rationalisation regarding the WSBK regulations or they will be in trouble. It's all very well saying that anyone of, say, 6 riders can win the race - that may well be true but we still need more starters than we have. BSB evo regs perhaps.......?

WSBK » HAVE YOUR SAY: Who shone at gloomy Donington?


@ Cubikrube..Couldn't have said it better myself. I like Corser but you have to ask if this is his last year - at least with BMW. Biaggi - well, what do you expect? I love his style when he's on-song but this week-end he was horrible. As Niall Mackenzie said at Donington, Biaggi was making typical Superteen mistakes (no offence to the Superteen lads intended). I liked the return to Donington and the track change at the essess is good, but where are they going to get the capital to finish the job - particularly regarding spectator facilities?

MotoGP » Red Bull entertainment at Silverstone MotoGP


Traditionally (IMO)the best place to watch is from Woodcote A as you can see down both the new Wellington staight and the Pit Straight (start and finish). However, the start line has now been moved to the new pits complex and whilst the view from Woodcote will obviously be the same, the incentive for overtaking may be a little different as the finish line is no longer where it was.

MotoGP » Red Bull entertainment at Silverstone MotoGP


I won't go as far as our friend above but I do go to race meets to see racing and not other activities such as aerobatics or parachute jumps which you can't see at Silverstone anyway because to see any on-track activity you HAVE to be in a grandstand. I have always liked Silverstone as a circuit (despite the many comments about it being flat...(like Assen?) but the ticket pricing policy this year has me baffled. Why did I have to pester Silverstone repeatedly to get them to agree to sell me seat number specific tickets in Woodcote A. They eventually agreed but only if a premium was paid and then only for the full 3 days, the option of race day only was not offered. Wise up Silverstone......MotoGP fans are not F1 floppies!
