MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner 'started to hate me' after Laguna 2008


I would love anybody to point out a single time where Casey brought up the subject of Leguna Seca BEFORE being asked about it. Just once! And for the upteenth time, it was not a deliberate pass. It was a mistake by Rossi. It was a superb race by Rossi but too dangerous and that is what Stoner was upset about, not the loss. Go back and read what Stoner said at the time. Don't ignore the fact his team wanted to protest and he vetoed it. It is good to see that no world championship is worth a thing if there is any suspicion you had an advantage bike wise. Of course this does not count for Rossi as he only ever won on inferior equipment. Everybody else must have had some unbeatable bike advantage!

MotoGP » Casey Stoner testing V8 Supercar


So Stoner bashers come out of the woodwork and try to rewrite the English language! Here is the definition of the two words from the oldest dictionary in the world. The Oxford. Definition of quit, verb: Informal resign from (a job). she quit her job in a pizza restaurant. he quit as manager of the struggling Third Division team. Definition of retire. verb. leave one’s job and cease to work, typically on reaching the normal age for leaving service. he retired from the Navy in 1986. (of a player) cease to participate in competitive sport. he retired from football several years ago. So there we have it in plain English. He did not leave before his contract was finished and he informed his employer via the proper procedures so it was not informal. He retired from the professional sport. Now stop trying to change the language!

MotoGP » Pirro: Ducati test role better than CRT option


Recently you saw the MotoGP Ducati struggle to outperform WSBK bikes on the same track. Logic says that CRT should be and will be much faster than WSBK. Same engines with more "go fast" mods. Better brakes. Better chassis. Lighter weight. All of this anti CRT after their first year is premature. Moto2 has got faster over the years. CRT will get faster and end up a tiny percentage behind full prototypes as their designs mature. There is nothing in the regulations to prevent that.

WSS » Aussie young gun Davies in PTR Honda move


This kid has proved his speed in the 125's and a couple of races, where he had a decent bike, in the 600's. He actually did better in the British 125's than Casey Stoner. So the people on this board who know nothing about Davies once again claim to know more than those who run the teams. They look for those who adapt to circumstances and do as well as they can with the equipment given. He raced 450, 125, 250 and 600cc in one season against England and Europes best juniors and podiumed in all classes. He won the European Junior Cup for God's sake! Matt deserves this ride more than 99.9% of other riders. As for paying for the ride, he could have raced Moto3 this season but couldn't bring enough money with him.

BSB » SMR Yamaha unveils new look, new riders


You have to attract money to a championship for sponsors to be willing to pay for a rider and bike. The bigger the audience the more money and more sponsors. If the internationals were not there to generate interest then the sponsorship money would not exist. What was suggested a few years ago is that each team be allowed a maximum of one foreign rider and if they hire one they must provide a bike in one of the classes to a U.K rider. So they can have their international stars getting TV coverage whilst the up and coming Brit is provided a ride in the lower class. That would be a good compromise but hard to get an agreement on. Perhaps also have a leaderboard for the leading domestic riders in the championship so they do not vanish in the overall standings.

BSB » SMR Yamaha unveils new look, new riders


Keyboard wannabe? What does that make you Rod? Wannabes hurl abuse when people don't agree with them. As for Aussies wanting to ride BSB. It is a logical stepping stone to WSBK and MotoGP. Not because it is better or harder than ASBK or AMA. It is in Europe where most of the world championship teams are based. The talent spotters might see the Aussies once a year at the support races for the MotoGP and WSBK. They can see them on a far more regular basis in BSB. Currently BSB has enough international riders to be a good platform for judging potential on the world stage. It has been a good platform for the young British riders as well. How many have graduated to world championships on their BSB performances? Quite a few so the series is doing its job!

BSB » SMR Yamaha unveils new look, new riders


Rod...the Australian Superbike and Superport Championships have produced more world champions and world championship race winners than BSB. If they get a ride in BSB it is because they earned it and believe me, an Australian has never brought money with them. To dismiss the Australian championships as some minor series is to show ignorance of the facts. Josh Brookes is doing far better in BSB than he could in the Aussie championship so which do you think is tougher? More people are watching BSB than ever before so it seems the majority do not agree with you. Thank goodness for that as I would rather see some of the world's up an coming talent get a chance than a bunch of no hopers getting seats based on nationality.

BSB » SMR Yamaha unveils new look, new riders


How the hell is Josh taking a UK riders place? It is the internationals that have made BSB one of the more popular domestic championships in the world. As for Aussies not making it without BSB. I can't remember Stoner ever racing in it. Or Doohan. Or anybody else who has won a MotoGP race since Barry Sheene....Oh sorry, Chris Vermuelen did. But he was another Aussie just taking up a UK riders spot on the grid. Oh, and Troy Bayliss but he is another Aussie. Perhaps I should have said I have never seen a British rider who has won in BSB win a MotoGP race since Barry Sheene. Be grateful you have top internationals to watch in your domestic series and that the young British riders have a chance to compete against them.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith - Q&A


Darkwaknight. They are not breaking the rules except for Rossi who I mentioned in my very first post on this subject. They are within the rules that might or might not change if the powers to be think it is an unfair advantage. That is the whole idea of prototype machinery. You read the rules, interpret them and build the best you can within your interpretation of the rules. If your interpretation is wrong then your bike fails scrutineering. If your bike passes scrutineering then it is legal but still subject to sour grape complaints from other teams. It is up to the other manufacturers to find out what clever engineering is giving an advantage and copy or protest against it. It happens in MotoGP and Formula 1. Some good ideas have been banned as cost prohibitive such as the oval pistons from Honda. When Honda introduced them they were legal within the bore and stroke regulations. When the FIM altered to rule to only allow circular piston they then became illegal. You still have yet t
