MotoGP » British MotoGP, Silverstone - Race Results


Podster, MM did not lose 2 points in the chanpionship. He was given two PENALTY POINTS by race control. This is Dorna's new penalty points system. Riders who make serious infractions of the rules or make dangerous moves are given penalty points on a scale of 1 to 10. The points can accumulate over a season. 4 point and you must start from the back of the grid in the next race. Seven points and you must start from the pit lane. Get 10 points in a season and you are disqualified from the next race. So Marc was given 2 penalty points for not slowing down under the yellow flags being waved during Crutchlow's crash in the corner where Marc, himself, crashed. Marc still leads Pedrosa by 30 championship points.

MotoGP » Austin MotoGP: COTA details security after Boston bombs


Shamarone, I'm all for supporting the sports we love, but the owners of these venues need to meet the consumers half way. Not everybody in this country is rich and when the average Joe Public comes up with ways to attend these events and save a little money-like having a friend drop you off at the track to save money on parking-he is thwarted by some track owner who won't even let you walk into his facility. When faced with options that can only lead you to spend more money, like having no arranged or public transportation to a track that is out in the middle of nowhere, the average guy is going to have to think twice about attending a race. If COTA is unwilling to make the effort to make it somewhat easier for moto fans to attend their race and enjoy themselves, why should the fan make the effort to go.

MotoGP » Austin MotoGP: COTA details security after Boston bombs


Pepper, you can bring in your own sealed water according to COTA's website, but that's about it. These guys are trying to maximize the money they soak out of fans and I doubt the experience will be as much fun as Laguna is. COTA won't even allow people to be dropped off at the track and walk in as pedestrians just to encourage fans to pay for parking. Reports are that the attendance will not come anywhere near meeting expectations and I predict the crowd for this event will be even less next year after the way COTA is managing this event.

WSBK » Checa sets out stall for Island opener


This may be off topic, but the news needs to get out to US tv moto race enthusiasts. BeIN Sport has picked up broadcasting rights for WSBK in America. If you have that channel on your cable system, there will be a preview show tonight at 8:30PM (EST) and the race will be broadcast in a 41/2 hour block Saturday night beginning at 8:00PM (EST) according to BeIN Sport's website tv guide. Google their website for the program schedule. Spread the news to other message boards people. BeIN needs good ratings in the US to justify their decision to carry WSBK and are probably going to get MotoGP, too, if the ratings numbers are good for WSBK.
