MotoGP » How big is too big for MotoGP?

rdc: Also notice the line in the article about the weight of Pedrosa making other issues for him to deal with.
To equal him up with Redding he would need a 27kg heavier bike. That's about 18% extra ballast and would be ridiculous. From 2016 the fuel limit for factory bikes is removed and development is likely to look towards aero gains, in which case the small guys will still benefit enormously. Do we then make Pedrosa wear a Michelin man suit?

MotoGP » Loris Baz looking for a ride

There must be discrimination against fat blokes because you never see them racing gp bikes. But then it happens that some sports require certain physical attributes. If you want to be a jockey, you must be small. If you want to be a goal keeper, you must be tall. Motogp bikes are small and if you are tall, you won't fit on it properly.

MotoGP » Davies: UK needs world-class Circuit of Wales facility

ProfessorX: as long as tax payers are not footing the bill, why not? but to be frank, there are plenty of awesome circuits on the BSB calendar, which really only need a little bit more run off area slash some sort of protection against people rejoining unsafely. Perhaps some better rain runoff slash drainage as well.
But tax payers are already footing the bill and there hasn't been a brick laid yet. See where the money came from to pay Dorna to grab the rights off of Silverstone... a loan guarantee for 'track development'. The rate the price is increasing (up from £250m to £310m in less than a year) means it will need more and more funds and there are not enough daft investors around.

MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda

Moto3 bikes are like little motogp machines i.e. prototypes whereas moto2 bikes are more like souped-up CBR600s without loads of fancy electronics. However, moto2 develops race craft. Miller's race craft has been pretty good this year but he is still racing with the kids and has never raced against old experienced hands. However, the powers that be have decided it will take place so we just need to wait and see how wise they are.
