MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: An important test


MotoGP is prototype racing, a technology based series. Well it used to be. How can an engine 'freeze' aid development ? If the top class is now all about electronics and tyres, the bikes might as well be electricity driven and scrap the 4strokes, the same way that they scrapped the smokers. It's a good job that Rossi and Marc are putting some interest back into the racing.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Soft tyre better for our bike


Re .. conspiracy. I've said before that I don't see a conspiracy, more like frantic scrabbling about in the dark trying to find a fair way to even things up. The more Dorna fail, the more frantic they get. It's ironic that the most interesting, and better, racing comes from the lower capacity, lower spec, classes, whether it is 250cc, 600cc, or even BSB. Making MotoGP the most powerful (BHP) class and then spending millions to peg it back and make it usable is just plain daft. I'd rather see an anything goes 600cc as the top class. (remember it didn't take long for the 800s to catch up on lap times.)

MotoGP » Dovi: Top four ride in a completely different way


It's nothing to do with PR skills, more to do with common sense. Cal doesn't have to vent his anger in public, he doesn't have throw Ducati or his team any flak (brembo maybe). These things should be said in private if a solution needs to be found. We all know why he's angry, why does he think he needs to tell us ? At least he didn't lean the bike against a fence and give it the 'Hopper' treatment. :) ps.....I'd probably have reacted the same as Hopper and Cal. These things should not happen. pps.....to get back on topic, I'm thinking of adopting Dovi...He is class.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Soft tyre better for our bike


PorkPie.....I've said it before and I'll say it again.....I like your style. KnowNothing........I'm starting to think that you know more than your tag suggests. Re...Lorenzo and edge grip. Yamaha said when Rossi joined them (the 2nd time) that there would be no #1 in the team. They seem to have kept their word and are busy developing two different bikes to suit their riders. I now think we should keep quiet, otherwise Bridgestone will have to bring even more tyres than they do now. Hard, Hard with edge grip, Hard with braking stability, Medium, Medium with........etc etc.

MotoGP » Smith 'happy and confident' for Tech 3’s home race


TrueFan......I take your point. I was at fault in saying top because I didn't mean winning the Championship. I meant getting into a competitive position. Doohan very quickly was finishing the years in 3rd and 2nd position. In Mick's case, in his first year he beat his team mate Gardner, from then on he was there or there about. He was unfortunate to arrive when Rainey and the other Americans were at their peak.
