MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


@ Gazza The empty seats at the race were not due to financial or political reasons,but simply because it really is not that big a deal over there.I was at the Qatar race in 2009 and was shocked how quiet it was, main stand not even half full. I was fortunate to be staying in the same hotel as some of the riders and teams and was told 1st hand that they like the venue because it is so relaxed due to the low number of fans. On the pit walk riders were actually engaging with fans instead of hiding at the back of the garage ( Colin Edwards is a legend).

MotoGP » MotoGP weight debate rumbles on


@ not a clue I'm just off for a test day on my wooden trike, i'll remember to add my 4kg before heading out though. As someone else stated, the biggest variable is rider weight and if by adding 4kg to the bike the rider has to move his weight around slightly more during different areas (breaking,accelerating etc.) To compensate, surely the best riders in the world can manage that. If not someone who could would take their place.

MotoGP » MotoGP weight debate rumbles on


@ thetroll I never mentioned the development of the bike it was purely manufacturing costs I was referring to, and if you multiply the possible saving on each part by the quantity of each they would make (and wastage during development) it could be a substantial saving. As for the rider weight (which I never mentioned either), you may be correct in that a heavier therefore possibly stronger rider may be better on the brakes but seeing as it is bike weight and not rider weight that has been altered it's irrelevant.
