MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass


Appropriately, the first couple of pages on this thread about MM passing JL kept more or less on topic, but somewhere in the middle they were ousted by the same old, same old arguements The last four pages have had nothing to do with the overtake whatsoever. So I'd like to get back to this thread's real topic of MM and JLo duking it out. At the corner before the one in question, Jlo dived under MM, they made a light contact, and MM was squeezed right out to the kerb. It should surprise no-one that MM came back with an equally audacious move, diving under JLo and causing him to pick up his bike. That's racing. That's entertaining, exciting racing. That's real edge-of-the-seat stuff. That's what I like to see, when both riders are determined to come out on top and no-one gets hurt. Maybe CRASH! should create a couple of perpetual threads devoted to popular topics such as "electronics- too much?" " How to define a great rider". "What such and such retired rider would have done ...

MotoGP » Donington Park to host 2015 British MotoGP


johnny13: Silverstone cost this year for the four of us inc camping (me and dad plus 2 mates) 400 pounds 2015 Donington cost for the four of us inc camping 480 pounds. Ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous. !
My wife and I went to the Spanish MotoGP at Montmelo ( Barcelona ) in 2013. On the gate on the Friday we bought a 3-day pass with sit-anywhere in any Grandstand for 2 days ( we chose to sit in the grandstand opposite the Yamaha and Tech 3 pits ), and an allocated grandstand seat for the Sunday. Facilities were excellent. Total cost was 90 Euros exactly ( about £72 ), and parking was free. OK, so we didn't camp, but the huge difference between Spanish and UK attendance costs really does need to be investigated.

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: 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 !

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps


Brain: Read it again, i said Rossi is not capable of beating todays competition for a championship. Lorenzo has righted the ship and is clearly the leader of the Yamaha team and superior rider.
As I said to you earlier " Only one rider will be good enough to win the 2014 championship, so by your reasoning all the other riders are rubbish, which clearly they are not." And if MM93 wins the championship ( Ooops, I wrote "if" where I should have said "when" ) JLo will have been proved, by your definition, to also be ( and here I quote you ) " not capable of beating todays competition for a championship. " Your own comments destroy your arguement !

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.

That’s settled, then. But for 2016 it could be Donny, Silverstone, Brands, or even Ebbw Vale. I read it this way- "The Circuit Of Wales" is an investment Company who have bought The Rights to promote (run/organise) the British MotoGP, but it seems that they are not compelled to host it in Wales. It appears that they can choose to stage the event at any UK track which reaches Dorna's standards for GP racing. This means that they can take the GP to any eligible Brit track, and they will obviously take it to whichever track makes them ( the Promoters ) the most money. This partly depends on gate, TV and other receipts, and partly on the costs of "hiring" the circuit and ancillary services. The CoW MUST make at least enough to cover what they pay to Dorna, and the remaining hopefully anticipated profits can be invested in the Ebbw Vale circuit. We may even see the British MotoGP held at different circuits each year which may be good- or not. The CoW is a cow. A cash-cow.
