MotoGP » Honda, FIM won’t release Rossi-Marquez clash data


Tetley......I checked in one of my books. The Spanish Federation would not their riders compete. Rebel Read was another big name to add to Ago and Bazzer. Although Barry was argueably the highest profile name at the time. The Factories followed by boycoting the IOM and soon after it lost its Championship Status. I felt at the time that it was a good thing, too many lives lost.... including a friend of mine.

AusssieNsw....again. My fault is that I firmly believe that Jorge and Marc have 'gained' a lot of fans from guys that used to support Casey. I made the assumption that it applied to yourself. I do not think, or have I said that Marc made Rossi lose the Championship. I post to join the debate and try to come from both sides. Casey performed wonders and won 16 of the 23 in the first 2 years.....I don't think he would have won on the bike that Rossi rode, Yamaha and Honda had improved quite a bit. Nobody talks about my guy, so I don't have anything to discuss.

AussieNsw.....You mentioned recently the debt that modern racing owes to Barry Sheene. He put GP racing on the map, he campaigned for improved rider safety, even better toilet facilities at tracks (you probably know the story ) It's a sad reflection on Motor Bike Racing fans that Barry got his share of hatred from so called fans. Frank told me once the extent of it...not nice at all. Barry, his missus, and his parents lived in a mansion (near where I lived at the time) and people used to telephone and hurl abuse at whoever answered the phone.
