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 » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi


Rossi didn't drop into the 43s until lap 16, he then had a few laps in the 43s and a 44 !!. Anyone tell me why ? Rossi, himself doesn't mention it. He got back into the 42s and he seemed to have what was needed to win except that the Hondas clearly have an edge. After the previous race posters were saying that only Jorge had what it takes to fight with Marc.....maybe not so after this race. Ps...Dovi still plugging away, top Ducati again.

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.)
