MotoGP » Title contenders skip first Misano MotoGP session

@GO REA GO. Very very close? I don't want to take anything away from Rea, he did well in testing for his first time on the bike and in particular getting used to new tyres. However he was not very, very close. His best time was 1.8s of the pace. Sure that's almost a two second improvement over the early stages of testing. Almost two seconds adrift could not be considered in any way close. The good news is that he consistently improved throughout testing as he got used to both the bike and the tyres. So the odds are he's still got plenty of improvement left. As such the last thing he needed was wet practice. What he needs is time on a dry track to prepare for the race. He's only got two races to impress in the class. He doesn't want that chance blowing by the weather. Sure there's no Honda factory ride until 2015, but there may be other chances.

MotoGP » Title contenders skip first Misano MotoGP session

You need to think about why riders chose to stay in their motorhomes before commenting. Look at the forecast for the area. Today rain most of the day, heavy at times. Tomorrow possibility of showers first thing. Sunday dry and mostly sunny. So what is to be gained by going out today? There's certainly nothing to be gained in terms of setup if qualifying and the race are going to be dry. Most of the riders know the circuit inside out, so they're not going to learn anything new. So what's left? Hayden, for example, probably went out just to test his hand. Maybe others were trying new parts, wanted to check out the circuit or just try a new part or something. Certainly there was little sign that anybody was really giving it beans. If there was a good chance of the rest of the weekend being wet I'm sure there would have been more riders out there. As it stands however there's little to gain and lots to lose by going out and pushing it in the wet.

WSBK » Checa: It’s an unbalanced game right now

The twin is slower on the straights? Well boo hoo. Remember when Ducati had such a power advantage they didn't even need to use all the capacity available to them? Lets have a properly level playing field. 1 litre for all and free on weight within the production based construction rules. That's real world. Allowing a capacity advantage isn't. Honda proved years back that if they took advantage of the Ducati rule they could win the championship. IOW it was the rule that was winning back then more than the Ducati implementation of it. It's a dumb rule because when the twins were allowed a 33% capacity advantage they were mostly dominant, but now we're being told with the twins enjoying a mere 20% capacity advantage the fours are dominant. IOW no matter how much they tweak it one side or the other will have the advantage. And whoever is on the side that is taking the kicking will cry foul. Take away the stupid rule and write a simple set of rules around a fixed capacity. Then whatever

MotoGP » Ben Spies, Iannone secure 2013 MotoGP seats

@Lol Well done, you're weeks behind the rest of the world. Spies announced that he had decided to leave Yamaha when everybody already knew Yamaha were going to announce a deal with Rossi in a few days time, and everybody knew he was just trying to save face. Likewise his announcement that he had something really exciting lined up for next year. All racers spout crap, it's almost part of the job specification. However sometimes it gets a bit Freddie Spencer. Sometimes it even goes beyond that.

MotoGP » Hector Barbera planning CRT MotoGP move

@pcxmac nobody knows exactly what shape Moto1 will take, but it won't be CRT. CRT is a framework to get independent chassis builders into the premier class. It is not the future of the class. There are various options open for Moto1, but whatever it is it will almost certainly involve the factories supplying full prototype spec engines to teams running their own or bought in chassis. CRT is a means to an end, not an end in itself.
