MotoGP » Ben Spies skips final day at Sepang


Why all this talk about Suzuki in 2014? Even if Ben is on a Suzuki he won't be winning, and that's no comment on Ben's riding. There's simply no way that Suzuki will be competitive in their first year back, even if they do come back. Firstly it's a long time since Suzuki were last properly competitive in MotoGP. Actually they've never been a serious competitor since the class started. Secondly Yamaha and Honda will have a couple of years race development behind them under the current rules*, which amounts to a two year start. Suzuki will be playing catch up for at least a season, and I'm sure Suzuki would openly admit that. It's only the blind loyalty of Suzuki (and possibly Spies) fans that makes them believe otherwise. *So have Ducati but they seem to have squandered the first year.

RR » Financial woe sees axe fall on Bush road races


On the question of who is making claims, that's not how the insurance industry works. They supposedly assess the putative risk of somebody making a claim, IOW premiums are not calculated from previous claims. Insurance companies have to factor in the likelihood of somebody successfully suing based on previous court cases, and of course the damages likely to be awarded. And remember insurance isn't just about personal damages and the like. Other things are covered such as the event being called off. Then there's the fact that the insurers are not necessarily the most honest businesses in the world. They also work out premiums based on things like how much they think they can get away with charging or how much they have lost in other areas.

MotoGP » Edwards looks 'Forward' to FTR-Kawasaki


Allow the superbikes to run the trick bits? Do that an Superbikes would cost more to run than GP bikes. The reason superbikes are faster than CRTs is the cost of building all those engines. Add the trick GP bits to them as well and they would cost a fortune. CRT is a low cost way of chassis contructors to get into the class ahead of Moto1. What the FIM/Dorna are hoping for is a grid full of chassis built by independent constructors running full fat factory engines. I don't think they will ban full fat factory entries to achieve this. More likely they will just gradually make MSMA entries slower while allowing what are currently CRT teams to run full factory engines (without the new fuel restrictions etc.) so that they will be faster. Thus they will effectively eliminate direct MSMA entries and encouraging the factories to supply engines to the current CRT field. Not sure, however, that they can build an F1 style infrastructure that has built up over decades in just five years.
