MotoGP » British MotoGP to Circuit of Wales!


I live in West Wales. The location etc. in SE Wales is fine and has good access and roads infrastructure. Anyone on here tried getting into Mugello? If you had you'd never moan about the road access inti Ebbw Vale. But.... mrfill makes solid points. Given that The Taffia including every well connected businessman, contractor and politician will all be looking to their own personal profit and pocket, with little or no actual concern for the taxpayers money or the actual completion of the project and its success as a venue and contributor to motorsport and the Economy...... Then I wont be the least surprised if CoW doesnt turn out to be an expensive lemon. CoW is a great idea but I have very little faith itll be done properly. Its far more likely that we will all get done over while those involved disappear after obtaining vast sums from this in a short-term cash grab frenzy. Dorna are just one more big nose in the trough on this one I fear.

MotoGP » Rossi: Honda has found something


Brolong22: "and it is actually far more likely that he'd be less effective on one than on the Repsol RCV" why? if the statement about him winning cant be made because its based on nothing then surely the opposite conclusion can't be arrived at either for the same reason. Neither outcome is certain at the end of the day but is it really that "amazing" to think a rider can change manufacturers and still win?
Because MM got straight onto what is universally considered the best bike with the biggest team, budget and massive investment in electronics strategies etc etc etc. And was able to race right up front against experienced proven winners from day 1, with no learning period, adaption nor learning curve in what us allegedly the pinnacle of racing. Those things scream 'package superiority' - thats why.

MotoGP » Marquez: I’m not afraid to lose


V4Poweeeer: Only his closest opposition is scared, scared of how long this is going to go on for.
I can answer this. Marquez will be dominant for as long as the Repsol Honda has the advantages it currently holds, and for as long as Marquez fits the profile as the personality to be the face of Dorna run MotoGP. If one of the above changes then so will MM's fortunes. Regardless of a zero change in his riding ability. After all, MotoGP places actual true rider skills and competitiveness we'll down the order of importance. Think on this... If for some reason MM popularity and marketability were to fail for some reason... does anyone REALLY believe he would remain as successful in GP's? (A. No.)

@ Brain. Ref your comments to me a page or 2 back. Thanks for reinforcing my statement that there is a world of stupid on here. We'll done you just proved you're in the epicentre of that stupid. You're trolling flat out, while sticking your head as far up Marquez's crevice while you're at it. Don't tar me with your sort of petty prejudices as we'll either. I am FOR the riders. ALL of them. I am FOR proper Sport and Racing. I am against unfair levels of equipment disadvantaging ANY one rider from ANY other. I am against Electronics and technology being permitted at levels where Rider Talent is replaced - it means Riders no longer truly compete fully with their natural skills & that machine disparity and data solutions Rules & determines competitiveness. You Brain belong under a bridge. One that has goats trying to cross it.

MotoGP » Rossi: Honda has found something


Look. Honda has spent an absolute mint to engineer their bikes, their electromics and the series rule book so that they can show the world the engineering might and power of Honda. Those millions and millions of Euro..... and still the workd is full of mouth-breathers who lack the wits to work out that it really IS the Factory Repsol Honda thats by far the biggest factor in race wins and titles. Now... if someone said put Lorenzo on the Honda and he'd probably win more.... there'd by logic in such a statement. Why? Because all available information says (as does Rossi) that the Repsol Honda is the best package. Which is also why i state that blindly believing that MM would stuff VR, JL & DP if he was put onto a Yamaha is a view that has nothing of any substance to support it. Not so hard to understand, really.

Its amazing how a poster can claim with total security that Marquez or any other rider would definitely win mosf of the races if he rode a rivals bike, and that is definitely MM's skill that makes the most important contribution...... Based on nothing. Marquez has never so much as sat on a Yamaha, and it is actually far more likely that he'd be less effective on one than on the Repsol RCV. Then theres the fact that all the Factory team bikes bristle with finely tuned and meticulously set up electronic rider skill replacing systems.... systems which simply would not be there and have the massive investment in time and money made in them...... if they weren't effective at managing key elements better than ANY human input. Blind belief and evangelism. You want to save that for religion, not for getting all lovestruck over any motorcycle racer.

....... is buried behind equipment disparity & technology. End of. Until fans start to think properly and see through the media hype and actually see how It really is .... Then ALL your riding heroes are doing is risking life and limb to put on a show not a proper race series, and the stupid are putting riders on pedestals and worshipping them when in truth the result is largely orchestrated. How is it that so many sports fans can be so blind as to not see what is right in front of their eyes? You'll never have a more blatant proof of this than these last 2 seasons. There must be those raking the money in laughing their heads off about how they can get away with anything cos the audience is so easy to fool and to please. If Grand Prix fans want proper racing and real champions then you HAVE to demand these things.

MotoGP » Rossi: Honda has found something


I would hope that M-cycle racing fans would want MotoGP to be a contest where you had to be the best and beat the best fair and square to be crowned the World Champion and the current best motorcycle racer. Even if you're a fan of one rider above all others... You should want that rider to have won against worthy opponents in a fair fight. Simply as without a fair contest the achievement is diminished and devalued and the whole thing becomes pointless. This is the reality of MotoGP now. Has been for ages. Again... ALL riders and ALL fans are being robbed by Dorna failing to make and keep MotoGP to be an environment where the very very best get to compete on level playing field on the planets best circuits, riding machines that require ultimate talent and application of talent to get the best out of. If and until we get that then it's a sorry fact that winning races & titles is pretty meaningless, as assessing who has used their talents best is buried behind equipment disparity &

MotoGP » Bradley Smith staying at Tech 3 Yamaha


Codger: myself...... I must admit that what you say was my first thought when Honda signed Cal. Let's hope they both make good on their respective lifelines. I suppose TalentFan....sorry, ProfX will educate us on how Dorna and Bridgestone engineered both signings.
Codger. Sorry to disappoint but I have nothing ti do with ProfessorX. He is another poster. Actually our posts are quite different in many ways, you're just not seeing them. But seeing as you stirred the pot..... youd be a damned fool not to know that Dorna as well as the Mfrs meddle and bring significant pressure to bear on the hiring decisions Satellite Team Principles make. Its openly spoken about and reported about and admitted by Mfrs, Dorna and team owners FFS! I cant be accused of a conspiracy theory when its all in the public domain already! So yes if course there's going to be more to Smith getting the ride for 2015 than just Herve deciding Smith deserves a 3rd season! Good grief
