MotoGP » Ellison in the dark over PBM’s 2013 MotoGP plans

@"CRT is a career killer" It's the same as the Evo (and the Cup before) was in BSB. Talented riders started there then got chances with better bikes. It's a bit worrying that none of the CRT riders got chance with 'factory' bikes for 13, but hope it will change in the future. It's a class in the class. After the first season I think it's useless to hope they will catch the factory and sat bikes.

MotoGP » Pirro to become Ducati MotoGP test rider

I believe it's some kind of a step back. I consider him not a genius but a talented fast rider, who should improve as full-time rider. Test riders usually have much more experience. A little pessimistic about the wild-cards, it's not usual for Ducati. What's more likely, if one of their full-time riders injuries, Pirro can take his place (hopefully not like Kenny Noyes took Barbera's). On the other hand, it looks like Yonny Hernandez will move to the Gresini CRT. Wonder what happened with San Carlo wanting an Italian rider.

WSS » Sofuoglu, Foret to join ‘Kawasaki India’

I guess this means this team will be the new factory Kawasaki outfit. Strange because Lorenzini had the factory status for only one year, and won the title that time. Sofuoglu and Foret are the best possible choice, altough I'm surprised Sofuoglu don't try another category. He don't have too much to prove in Supersport. He is clear favourite for the title, Cluzel and the others won't have an easy time. A little bit sorry for Linfoot, he did great in the last few races. He has future in SSP, hope he will find a decent bike.

MotoGP » Moto3: Maverick Vinales quits Avintia team!

Disappointed with the team, but even more disappointed in Vinales (favourite Moto3 racer). If he wasn't satisfied with them since half season, why he signed a two-year contract? He don't have chance for the championship, but as a real racer he should fight for the second place, even with a rubbish bike. Then leave them after the last race. I'm not afraid this move will make him unpopular for other teams. They all know he's the fastest. Hopefully he can get a top bike, KTM or Aspar. Altough if he thinks Blusens is a second division team, I don't know which teams are first division.

BSB » PBM to combine BSB, MotoGP in 2013

Congratulations to Shakey and the team. They did a great job after leaving WSB with bad results. I would love to see Keith Farmer with the team next year. Shane should try CRT or WSB. I don't know if defending the title is a good idea. Kiyonari and Hill failed to do that. Maybe Byrne has to wait for his 4nd championship another four years.
