MotoGP » Amazing Marquez ‘rides MotoGP like dirt track’


sandplasma: If electronics were not as prevalent as they are today I guarantee you would see a very different crowd in front. Its unfortunate that raw talent has to take a backseat to good electronics engineers.
Marquez's quote from the latest PB: “For me, using the electronics is not the way to go fast. You know they are there, but when you have a new rear tyre it’s difficult to reach the traction control. You feel the traction control cut in when the tyre is used, near the end of races, or in the wet. You also feel the cuts in long corners, but they can upset the whole bike. It’s much better to manage the situation with the throttle, so you don’t actually reach the point where the traction control cuts in.” and some more:"I like to feel the front tyre sliding a bit. That's how I find the limit"

WSBK » Suzuki needs a change of electronics, says Laverty


1MoreRound: It will be interesting to see if the new SBK rules help the like of Suzuki and Honda. That said, I think Suzuki better get something in the works, and fast, or they will farther off the pace than they are already. Especially when Yamaha comes back to the party.
It's just the opposite. Just take a look how Suzuki and Honda are doing in STK. Other manufacturers have released new limited edition bikes just for homologation purposes. Suzuki has bold new graphics. LOL I have a GSX-R myself and it's really disappointing to see that Suzuki hasn't done much since 2005.

WSBK » New WSBK champion Guintoli joins PATA Honda for 2015


shamarone: re: "the Honda is almost a true WSB bike and may have the advantage." not unless it's the fabled RC213V...? homologated at 1000 units.
Honda just registered RC213V-S in EU. Kawasaki, Aprilia and Suzuki seem to be the only manufacturers without a specific homologation model for the new EVO rules in WSBK. We might see some the new models this week.

F1 » The move that could cost a world title?


formula1blog (dot) com/2012/11/29/vettels-pass-with-yellow-lights-green-flag/ There is a marshal waving a green flag BEFORE Vettel makes the pass. quote:"The controversy over Sebastian Vettel’s third Driver’s Championship continues as a new video surfaced showing Vettel passing Toro Rosso’s Jean-Eric Vergne when there was a solid yellow light on the steering wheel warning system. The problem with this video is that you can clearly see a marshall waving a green flag in the footage as well."
