MotoGP » Yamaha confirm Valentino Rossi’s return


Nice one Vale!!! This is really good news!! And the icing on the cake is seeing all the haters on here spitting feathers and foaming at the mouth, so so funny!!! By the middle of next season one of the greatest bike racers ever will still be racing and being talked about. Others that have tried and fallen by the wayside will have lost most of their following by then.

MotoGP » Ben Spies to leave Yamaha MotoGP team


@pcmax 'but, if you dont have the setup you will never amount to podiums or victories in MotoGP, no rider can out race a bike that isnt setup properly' Sorry just dont follow your reasoning on this one! Surely a big part of a riders job IS to set up the bike or at least to provide the feedback to the mechanics so that they can perform the required tasks, if he is unable to set up a bike why on earth should he be there?

MotoGP » Ben Spies to leave Yamaha MotoGP team


I don't understand the emotion shown here by so many people about the exit of Spies. He's on a full factory bike, he's scored 66 points and lies 10th, his team mate who is on the same bike is at the head of the field with 185 points almost 3 times the point of Spies. Both satellite Yams have ended up in front of Spies more often than not this season. What else can a team manager do but replace him, he's had a chance to prove himself and has not come up with the goods, I would think that Yam are quite embarassed by the fact that he's so far behing the satellites on a winning bike.

F1 » Williams plays part in Audi Le Mans success


Nanbawan The williams system on the F1 car has 2 electric motors, one is connected to the flywheel of the energy store the other is connected to the gearbox, when under braking the motor on the back of the gearbox turns into a generator which provides electrical power to the other motor which spins the flywheel. To harvest that stored energy the system reverses and the motor on the flywheel provides power to the motor on the gearbox. I suspect that the sytem devised by Williams for Audi will be similar but instead of a single gearbox motor there are two motors mounted one on each of the two front wheels and one on the flywheel, as far as the 24 hour lemans race was concerned the stored energy could be harvested at 7 points on the track and only when the car speed was above 120kph. What a fantastic test of the Williams system, 24 hours of continious running at race pace - that should be okay then. Porsche also have some of their gt3 cars equiped with the system
