V8 » VIDEO: Casey Stoner previews final V8 race


SO I have only ever heard one negative comment by another rider and that is from Rossi. So I would love you to point out anybody else who had a bad word to say about Stoner. None of the V8 drivers have had a bad word to say either (except for the young fellow he punted off in a race, the only person he has actually hit all year). As for proving nothing. He was running 4th at Bathurst against opposition who have been racing there for many years. He proved his speed and ability to pass and could have continued if he wished.

V8 » VIDEO: Casey Stoner previews final V8 race


I think if the rules had been different in the Dunlop Series he would have enjoyed it more and probably continued. They have changed the rules for 2014 as they could see that not only Stoner was getting frustrated by it all. He would qualify in the top ten, get punted if the track by somebody else than have to start the second race from where he finished. He would often pass 10 to 15 cars but that still meant starting the 2nd race from 15th or worse on the grid. He would work his way up the field but never be in contention to win due to having to pass most of the field in the first two races. Next year they are having two longer races instead of the three with separate qualifying for both. He has shown good speed so it is a shame to see him not continue.

MotoGP » Moto2: Anthony West erased from results


He accidentally took the substance Monstermash. Or didn't you read the article? He was the first to ride the KTM 250 and had to wait ages for it to be ready. Then he got a podium on its debut! They rushed things and Ant thought the KTM was dangerous. Hence the falling out with that mob. He was offered and accepted a factory Yamaha ride in WSS before abandoning that for the Kwaka MotoGP anchor. Westy was and still is a top rider and has been shafted by many a team not keeping their promises. So he is happy where he is. His present team don't have the big budget but at least they try and provide good equipment. Who would they replace Ant with? Anybody as good as him or better would be demanding a much bigger paycheck than him!

MotoGP » Moto2: Anthony West erased from results


Methylhexaneamine is deadly. Although banned in many countries, including Australia and Canada, some countries continue to allow it to be used a a "Health" supplement. Due to deaths associated with the drug they had to come down fairly hard on Ant. This thing hanging over his head certainly contributed to his form slump late in the season and he hinted at it during interviews at the Aussie GP. Now it is over with he can get back enjoying his racing. He can start by thrashing Jason Crump, Troy Bayliss, Jack Miller, Cameron McDonald, Chris Vermeulen and others at Taree in January,

MotoGP » New name for 'CRT' MotoGP class revealed


Stoner rode with minimal traction control. I am sure Rossi probably uses less than most. The electronics are not need to be able to ride the bikes fast. What the electronics have done is reduce the advantage that the Americans and Australians used to have. They came from short circuit and local superbike championships where they learn throttle control and were happy the the rear wheel sliding. It developed skills far more suited to the 500cc two strokes than coming via the 125cc and 250cc classes. That is why there were so many top 500cc riders from those two countries. With the electronics and traction control the same style used in the lower classes is now relevant to the top class. It is an easier transition. I think the sport has lost a lot by taming the bikes. Disaster to tame them any further!
