MotoGP » Nakamoto: Racing is in Honda’s DNA


For the oldtimers on here. Me and Mrs Codger went to Pageant in the Park in Chester, in the grounds of Cholmondoly Castle this weekend. A 3 day motoring event with racing motorcycles, racing and rally cars, airoplanes, jet skis etc. A hill climb proved interesting in so much that the multi million pound Works Rally car reached 104 miles per hour, while the 450cc SuperMoto bikes managed 103mph !! I had my Photo taken on the 203cc Ducati that I owned in 1960. The bikes ranged from 60s MV, Honda, Benelli up to Leon Haslams WSBK bike. There was also an open air concert headed by Status Quo. A support act was some bloke name of James Toseland. Sorry to bore you with this, but well worth a visit. PS The ground shook when a 1932 42 litre, 24 cylinder racing car went up the hill. (yes.....42 litre)

MotoGP » Nakamoto: Racing is in Honda’s DNA


MotoJunky......:) I count myself lucky. I have memories all the way back to getting the autograph of the great John Surtees at Brands Hatch when I was, I think, 15 yrs old. Stood next to Mike the Bike in the paddock when Nobby, his mechanic, warmed up the 250cc Honda six cylinder. All eras were, and are, magic. 72 in August, by the way. In the body of decrepid 40yr old, with the mind of an immature 18yr old.

MotoGP » 'Best race of the season' for runner-up Rossi


Two things to consider. There has been countless posts stating that Rossi is 'over the hill' and should retire, due to his age. Now there are posts saying that advancing years doesn't matter. If the Hondas didn't have a clear edge over the Yamahas, then Rossi would be leading the Championship. (Marquez is a breath of fresh air and a very, very fast rider but he wouldn't be where he is without the Honda being the bike it is.)
