WSBK » Aprilia boss talks World Superbike future


Aprilia really NEED to reach a profitable agreement with a non-factory superbike team to bring in some cash to fund their MotoGP project. If they go to MotoGP without a cash income from WSBK topping up their finances they will soon find their resources are drained, which means a halt (or severe slowing) of investment and development in their bike, which translates into lack of success, which means waste of time, money and opportunity. This would be a real shame as they have the talent and capability to build competitive race bikes, and their road bikes, like the Mille I had a few years ago, are great alternatives to mainstream (common) choices. In my opinion, the only way a small manufacturer like Aprilia can survive, especially in big-money racing, is to make customer bikes and sell or lease them to private teams. The Cube has already shown them what a money-pit MotoGP is.

MotoGP » Donington Park to host 2015 British MotoGP


Banned: £40? You did well. Just going to Moto GP race day at Silverstone is £90 plus you also get seriously mugged off for parking charges if you take your car.
Tetley: OK, so we didn't camp, but the huge difference between Spanish and UK attendance costs really does need to be investigated
rsmick It wouldn't need to be a long investigation, £ is strong against the €, if it was the same it would have been £90, closer to the Silverstone mark.
As my original post said, at the 2013 Catalalunya MotoGP Mrs TBaggs and I got 3-day Grandstand seated tickets with free parking for a total cost of 90 Euros ( £72 approx). Mick and Banned - There seems to be some variance in reports of what Silverstone charges actually are (were).

MotoGP » Donington Park to host 2015 British MotoGP


I've just watched this weekend's BSB and Donington's track looked awesome. With all the past comments of mud and lack of cover and mucky toilets, Donington's bosses know they are lucky to get this last chance at a MotoGP, this major opportunity to redeem their venue and restore goodwill among their customers. They can hire temporary grandstands and place them at all the best vantage points. They can hire portable toilets and put them where they are needed. They can hire and lay temporary pathways around the track and to popular areas to make the forthcoming event a success. Either Donington or CoW must pay the costs of these extras, but either way the cost will have to be passed to customers. I'm hoping that the appropriate improvements are present ( even if temporary ) and that the MotoGP turns out well, as I have doubts that the CoW venture will survive into 2016, leaving Donington able to bid for the MotoGP contract.

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps


Brain:
Tetley:
.
No Brain, ( see what I did there ? ) by the very same token a dnf for JLo would have him languishing in 5th or 6th in the Championship .
Uhh no, Even with another dnf, Lorenzo would still retain 4th place even if Dovi won the race. Just more of letting emotions get in your way of reason..
No, Brain, not emotions - just a ruse to get you to acknowledge that a dnf for your boy JLo would be equally as disastrous as your hypothetical dnf for VR46. And you took the bait by admitting that JLo would drop to 4th. Quod Erat Demonstratum. I note that in each of my responses to you, you only pick on only one aspect to contradict. It is therefore clear that you have no argument with all my other comments which expose your false logic. And you resort to name calling when reason prevails against you. ( Although I quite like "Boppers". If you haven't bopped, you haven't lived.)

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps


Brain: Lorenzo probably wont catch Rossi for 3rd, but a dnf would be all it takes for Lorenzo to push Rossi back to 4th by seasons end where he belongs.
No Brain, ( see what I did there ? ) by the very same token a dnf for JLo would have him languishing in 5th or 6th in the Championship Shot yourself in the foot again with flawed logic ! The points at season's end will determine who belongs where, not the poorly-reasoned fantasies of a self-deluded keyboard prophet.

Insidejob:
Metalguru:
Insidejob: So what if Rossi is 35. He is still racing as well as ever. Lorenzo and MM are a bit faster. That's all.
Hailwood, Dunlop, McGuiness, etc Wins in their 40s in real races. Rossi's age and fitness to race is not an issue.
True. And Biaggi in WSB.
Don't forget Jezza McWilliams ! Still winning at 50 years old !

It wouldn't need to be a long investigation, £ is strong against the €, if it was the same it would have been £90, closer to the Silverstone mark. The Montmelo race gets local government funding so you can add another £10 to that. The average Spanish wages are estimated to be around 16% lower than the UK . Prices are generally cheaper in Spain except things like running cars. Just a couple of points
Good points, Mick, but it felt like we'd got a bargain and we were happy to pay what they asked, unlike several posters on here who regard the UK prices as too much.
