WSBK » Checa back in front at Misano test


@ confused Lord give me strength! The point of all my posts is that they are NOT prototypes. In the context that we are using the word prototype, as opposed to its literal meaning, it means a racing motorcycle with the least number of limiting rules. I want to enter a supercharged V6 because I believe that it will create more than enough power, adjustable via boost, for any circuit andhave a linear power delivery to boot. However MotoGP is a heavily restricted class whose rules are dictated by a small group of manufacturers, the MSMA. In fact they have created rules that make the racing prohibitively expensive, due to the law of diminishing returns. As one poster mentioned Edwards' statement it costs millions to find another tenth. Of course it does when the displacement is limited to 800cc. Extra capacity is the cheapest power you can get. The new rules with fuel limits are also ridiculous. "Ok we will let you bump up to 1 litre but you don't get any more fuel."

@Vertigo Precisely. Yes the 800cc slugs are slightly faster but they cost the planet. For What??? This is my point. I have said it a million times but I will say it again. A forced induction 600 would blow any MotoGP engine off the dyno for a fraction of the cost. There is a limit to how much power can be put through the back wheel and the cheapest and easiest way to achieve that is with forced induction. Yet not one post has ever supported that except me. Now will come the meaningful responses "The rules say ...", "The engines would get hot and blow up" and "Forced induction! Are you crazy?"

@RawDawg We are on a different wavelength here. What I am against is a prototype class that is anything but prototype. The rot started when supercharging was banned after WW2 and it has been going downhill ever since. Then the two strokes were not allowed to use fuel injection. Now we have a cylinder limit, weight limit, fuel limit, bore limit etc. The list goes on forever. Like F1 where the lap times are getting slower and slower but no one mentions that. It's ok! The unwashed masses don't know anything about motorcycles, just enjoy the show! What show. I see a grid with a few slugs on it.

Ok RawDawg. Assuming you are correct then I stand corrected. I couldn't care less what they waste the money on. As I see it they are overpriced piles of garbage and my statement stands. We as motorcycle racing fans are supposed to accept that Rossi, Pedrosa, Stoner and Lorenzo can barely scrape ahead of Checa on a bike that costs a fraction of what a MotoGP bike does. Let me amend my statement. How about Stoner, Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Rossi jump on Checa's bike with carbon discs and 150kg weight limit and lets see what times they can do. Hell jump on one of the Yamaha SBK bikes fitted with carbons and a 150kg limit. MotoGP what a joke!!!

Final Qualifying MotoGP 2010 Dani Pedrosa (Honda) 1’33.948 Checa's Fastest Lap on a RACE tyre = 1'35.5 Wow the "prototype" (LMAO) bag of rubbish is 1.552 seconds faster than the Ducati. Can Checa put carbon brakes on and drop the weight of the Ducati to 150kg and have another go at it. Good thing MotoGP blowbags have all those millions of dollars worth of electronic nonsense for ummmmmm .. I forgot ... Oh yes, so they can try to beat the other piles of gutless junk. MotoGP is ridiculous. Flame away all you like. The stopwatch does not lie.

WSBK » Monza - Superpole qualifying times


@Steve929 And what do you propose? ...... Nothing! Last time I checked it seemed like a vibrant series with lots of makes and competitors, as opposed to MotoGP which is the exact opposite. The Flamminis told the factories where to go and the results speak for themselves. The MSMA made their own rules and we can see what happened to MotoGP. My comment is not based on a fanboy mentality of some make or rider. It is directed at those who always complain about the technical aspects of this series. The new Kawasaki looks good to me, or do you expect the Kawasaki to win the championship out of the box?
