BSB » Camier uncertain over BSB rule changes


Just to prolong the discussion, the following points were pointed out to me by Stuart Higgs as being key... -The points leader at 75% of the season has always won the championship -Mathmatically no-one outside of the top 6 has been within range of the points leader at 75% -The 'going into' the Showdown is unchanged - just closer -Teams/Riders have the motivating target of being in that top 6 which actually means something - in normal circumstances there is minimal recognition outside of the top 2 or 3. -The outcome isn't changed but the result is arrived at in a far more compelling way -Multiple points of interest which allows more teams and riders to get airtime/column inches.........cont'

MotoGP » Stoner can beat 'the greatest' in 2010, says Parrish


Love him or hate him (I do neither) Steve Parrish has been around and may have a point. Truth is, it should be one hell of a year and no-one knows who is going to win. Everyone with on ounce of common knows it's going to be super close with the 4 aliens up front. I think VR,CS and probably JL will gap DP but who knows for sure? Off subject a little but we should all be very aware that MotoGP is at risk and unless Dorna, et al, do somthing really smart - and quickly - we may not have a premier event to discuss. Make no bones about it, the series cannot carry on as it is.

BSB » POLL: Do you like the BSB rule changes?


I'm surprising myself and slowly coming round to this new points system. Initially I was 100% against, as was evident in previous posts, but now I'm warming. I know that the vast majority are against them but I think they may well work. I agree that it's massaging the numbers but maybe if we have 6 riders all in with a chance of winning the championship at the start of the last round, it will be worth the change although I still have to get my head around it properly.

BSB » BSB announces radical rule changes.


I spoke to Stuart Higgs earlier today at some length. He is obviously passionate about the series and is seeking to ensure the championship continues to be successful, regarding its attraction to TV audiences, in the face of fierce competition from from other sports. They have been in discussion with the teams for some time and according to SH this new points system has been devised with the teams input! I give him full marks for spending time (about 20 minutes) to argue his case with a 'mere fan' and whilst I strongly dissagree with the new points system I obviously wish the series luck.
