WSBK » Dorna: We need to go to growing markets


........Talk about people shooting themselves in the foot! If these negative and disagreeing so-called Racing Fans are truly indicative of the mindset of the majority.... then thats not a collective I want any part of - Racing Fans used to actually CARE about more than just which celebrity star to cheer for, and a chance to sneer and knock his rivals. Is todays racing fan little more than a WWF Hulk-Hogan mentality drooling nugget who likes his nonsense served up with leathers and wheels instead of leotards? Please tell me it hasn't come to such a low place.

WSBK » Dorna: We need to go to growing markets


Funny. Lots of disagrees & negativity... to posts basically asking for a race series to be run properly, so riders get a fair chance to compete, and so that fans get some proper, close, hard, fair, sporting, entertaining motorcycle racing. Are Fans really Lemmings? Is this really indicative... that fans actually are stating that they DON'T want proper Racing, and the Racing Stars having to race fair n squarem, and earn their titles and adoration? Do fans really saying "yep - serve up any old carp you like, I don't care. Just put it in a shiny wrapper so it looks good, and I'll buy it"? Hmm. Maybe Racing ISN'T the required Product of a Race Series any more? Perhaps the masses really have got so vaccuous, shallow and lazy that they couldn't care less if there's any reality or substance or actual Sport in their sport any more? Maybe Dorna are right then, and that a scripted Soap-Opera with shiny wheels is actually all that's needed to satisfy today's 'fan'. Talk about people shoo

WSBK » Corser eyeing top five for new BMW team


@ RSMick No-one denying that the previous custodians of WSBK didn't make a right hash of running the thing. But you're seriously going to try and say that Dorna are actually doing a good job with WSBK? Harry Houdini couldn't pull that trick off! Dorna have already fudged the rules and de-clawed their potential to introduce more genuine competition and contenders. There seems to be no real effort nor initiatives that could really boost the series. While WSBK might have been a mess before, (even if it was purely by accident) WSBK managed to put on a better on track display than MotoGP does. All Dorna seem to be doing is trying to ensure that WSBK dishes up the same non-sport predictable dirge that MotoGP does... but without the Glamour to distract the attention. Why DO you always defend the Establishment & the Status Quo?

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Motegi hard braking good for me


NineTimes: What amazes me is that a handfull overestimate Cal's ability as if he's as skilled as VR,MM,JL,DP,AD,AI. In an ideal world(I mean for Cal), he's at best 7th or 8th. So far, Dovi had on multiple seasons checked Cal's box. Next year he'll have a factory Honda, the bike that is superior to Ducatis. My humble prediction says Cal will have his bottom handed to him by Ducati boys.
As I keep saying.. you MAY well be right. But NO-ONE can PROVE it. Which (AGAIN) Racing is supposed to DO! CC's true ability MIGHT be 8th. Or 15th. Or 3rd. We could say the same for most ANY rider in MotoGP. Because the stupid rules, Dorna's uselessness and Factory Control all make damn sure there's never going to be a fair fight among the riders to do what Racing is MEANT to do.... settle the argument of just who is just how good. So none of us can truly 'estimate' or 'under-estimate' ability at all. I do wish people would start to understand that. Its kinda important.

MotoGP » Aragon progress excites Tech 3 riders


Seems to me that the whats increasingly needed is to hammer around collecting data while having to put trust and faith into the electronics guy's solutions and hope that he's got it right and doesn't pitch you on your ear. Then go back in. Download. Provide feedback. Await coding tweaks. Upload. Go back out, grit teeth, nail it and repeat. Next day of quali. Hope that conditions and tyres match up to existing data patterns and setup. Upload. Hammer round. etc. Race Day. Hope to blazes that the conditions and your data solutions match up. Sit on grid wishing you had 10x more data guys like the Factory pits have (plus whoever is back at the Factory tasked to help etc.) so you'd have a wider range of data analysed, collated, solutions plotted, code written and data solutions to maximise your package potential. Lights go out. Nail it & hope. Whoever says that Satellite guys have the same kit and opportunities and chances as a full Factory rider... is a clown. Would YOU lik

MotoGP » Rossi: Fight for second ‘getting interesting’


This thread again should be ramming it home to fans. Why is there is constant argument about which rider is only doing better than a rival, because of bike, tyres, electronics, data, support, fuel etc etc etc???????? The rows go on and on... Simply because MotoGP is so badly run that there ARE far too many differences and discrepancies and levels of equipment. The problem with a rider being in MotoGP is that being there and racing there proves nothing about ability & talent against their opponents. So who wins and who loses is a pointless sham and hollow. Now do you start to see why I keep on about this? It's essential for Racing to BE Racing, & Dorna' MotoGP fails riders & fans utterly in this fundamental requirement.

MotoGP » Rossi: Fight for second ‘getting interesting’


Brain: Im not saying Rossi is bad, im saying he is not as good as you think he is. You said you have followed GP for many years, surely you remember the manipulation by Ezpeleta to get Rossi on Bridgestones. That still has a foul smell to it.
Ah. Duality. Hypocritical use of an event to make one point, while ignoring the fact that it also disproves your point at the same time. 1. Due to the non-competitive, uneven, tilted, "manipulated" (your word this time, not mine) playing field that is MotoGP Brain... you cannot actually have any true idea just how good Rossi actually was or indeed is today. 2. Ergo, you cannot use ANY similar argument regarding talent to state that Marquez is definitely any better or any worse than Rossi (or indeed any other rider in your "Engineering Series"). You can't use your argument for one thing, then say it does not also apply to the other. They call that "Hoisting yourself with your own Petard" I think!

MotoGP » Rossi: Fight for second ‘getting interesting’


Brain: The top 4 are on the top 4 bikes for a reason, and for the 10000th time, this not a series that is exclusively about rider talent, THIS IS AN ENGINEERING SERIES as much as anything else.
You haven't the faintest idea why the top 4 are on the bikes (and for sure it has a hell of a lot more involved than just them being very talented)...you just THINK you do, and then serve it up loudly to try and give your opinion Gravitas. And.. an 'Engineering Series' eh? Not a Racing Series then? Funny, that's not what they claim it is on the label. And.. just how many technical rules limiting engineering freedom are there? Thousands. How long has the piston-engine (and the m-cycle) been around? Over a Century. The telescopic fork? Ditto. All thats been done is a refinement of what works and has worked more then well enough for a very, VERY long time, with the fastest getting MORE investment in data solutions (not in itself innovative either). Simply put Brain.
