MotoGP » Community shows support for Circuit of Wales


If Silverstone and Donington ( and Rockingham) can't meet Dorna's demands and still make money with ESTABLISHED circuits, the CoW never will with the added costs of starting from scratch. If they DO get permission to go ahead , it won't be many years until we will see the emergence of the "Circuit Of Wales Industrial Estate" with a bit of wide, twisty access road.

MotoGP » Moto2: Lowes: Circuit of Wales has 'special opportunity'


Sam Lowes "“I'd like to see one with heart and character which is different from the rest" Agreed, we all would. SL "That is what Britain needs to bring back the love to the fans then British racing will take off again.” I wasn't aware that that British circuits had lost the love of the fans, OR that British racing needed to "Take off again". The CoW isn't intended to do any of those things. It is a commercial money-making venture and their aim is purely to make profits. After building a new circuit to Dorna's international standards there will not be enough profit to sustain the venue, so the racing will give way to an industrial ( or housing) estate. It's one big scam.

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


TrueFan:
Tetley: Prof X, Yearby 23. ...honoured... privileged . Those with overblown self-image think that .. hurrumph, hurrumph, blah, blah,blah...
Tetley, the semantic distinction you describe may well be correct, but only grammar nerds care. You obviously spent some time pedantically learning the intricate difference between these two terms in your youth.
Resorting to insults and name-calling is the sure sign of losing the debate. However I will not respond like with like as I don't consider it fair to engage in a battle of wit with an unarmed opponent. It is ironic that you consider knowing how to use the English Language properly to be a fault. However, I must admit that I enjoyed diverting the thread from the endless, unanswerable, boring and predictable "What ifs" and "Stoner would have"s and who he would have trounced, and "if only this", and "if only that". My only regret is that so few posters took the bait. But it did

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


Prof X, Yearby 23. When you win an accolade you are honoured i.e. awarded an honour e.g. Sportsman Of The Year, O.B.E. , Victoria Cross, Knighthood. When you are allowed something that many others want, you are privileged . Those with overblown self-image think that getting their seat up-graded on a plane or the best table in a restaurant is an honour. They are not. They are privileged. Casey knows the difference between honour and privilege- he has never been reported as saying he had an under-honoured childhood .

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


Stoner - "I am not racing at Circuit of The Americas next weekend, it would have been an honour to ride for Dani Pedrosa' adding the hashtag 'NotMeantToBe'. " So he thinks Honda would have been Honouring him if they gave him the ride ? There's no mention of Ayoama being honoured, so why does Stoner regard it as an honour for himself? Because saying "He would be honoured" is to award himself the kudos. The correct phrase for the circumstances would have been that he was "privileged" to stand in for Dani. which more accurately places the kudos on the Team of Honda and the RC213V. The difference is not to place himself on a pedestal, but to acknowledge that he would have been lucky to be chosen. But Casey is too self-centred and immodest to think of anyone but himself.

MotoGP » Crutchlow wins satellite battle on tough night for Honda


Mysticmeg: I still dont get the guy ,he says hes still no regrets leaving ducati for a satt honda,??the dukes fighting for wins,and the sat hondas down the blunt end of the top ten, surely if you want to win bad, you would be regretting changing teams, or maybe hes happy making up the numbers
Have you never heard the phrase "It's no use crying over spilt milk" ? He's looking forward, not back. Being glum, jealous or dissatisfied are not positive mind-sets. He's taking a positive view of his circumstances. It's called "Self Motivation" and it is essential for all top sportsmen.

WSBK » Troy Bayliss to hang up helmet for good


Yearby23: Fastest 45 year old going. !
Troy is a great rider and well deserving of huge respect. it was a real treat to see him come back from retirement and test himself against today's young guns, but lets not get carried away. Hailwood came back to racing, in his forties after 11 years of retirement, and won again on the toughest circuit in the world. Think also of Jeremy McWilliams, several years older than Troy, still racing, and still winning. Troy's return has been a treat for us all and he has proved he's still got it. But unsurprisingly he's not got as much of "it" as he once had, so I wish him a long and happy retirement.

MotoGP » Dovizioso keeps new Ducati fastest - with wings!


Codger: I brought in the fact that Sheene tried out winglets in 1978 and 1979. I remember that they were discarded because they upset the handling when leant over. I have done some research but can't find anything that explains why. Any thoughts on this point Tetters ??
I don't know anything at all specific to Bazza'a wing test. However, aerodynamics were in their infancy then, as were suspension and tyres.

MotoGP » Dovizioso keeps new Ducati fastest - with wings!


Polyccio: What use are the winglets when the bike is at full lean?
Air is not a fixed horizontal element. Aircraft rudders prove that it works in all other planes (pardon the pun). Wings produce downforce at 90 degrees to their orientation. So if they are mounted horizontally on the bike they will increase downforce vertically i.e. through the tyre's contact patches. When the bike is leaning at any angle the downforce from the wings will still act through the tyre's contact patches. Other dynamic forces also influence the effects of the wings. Optimum downforce would be achieved if the wings were mounted on the lower forks so the full downforce is directly on the tyre, rather than on the fairing where its effect varies because it is transferred to the tyre through the front springs. But the Ducati's wings exploit the fact that under braking the wings' attack angle increases due to fork compression, yet gives less "drag" when accelerating. Simple, really .
