WSBK » Sizeable WSBK grid announced for Phillip Island


There are no locals as wildcards as the domestic Superbike series has disintegrated in a big way. For several years we have had two series, the ASBK and Formula FX, dividing our top Superbike riders and teams between them. Recently everybody has abandoned the ASBK series and jumped over to Formula FX. One of the highlights of the MotoGP and WSBK rounds at PI has been the local Superbike riders putting on great racing. I have no idea who will turn up for the support races in a weeks time but I doubt any of the factory teams will be there.

F1 » Walker ‘confident’ of Melbourne extension


Every year we have the newspapers saying it loses money at the gate and how expensive it is to run. They totally ignore the cost benefit analysis and the fact that no F1 race is going to pay for itself at the gate. The critics go silent when you point out the long list of other cities, including several in Australia, that are waiting for the chance to pinch our round.

MotoGP » Honda vows MotoGP withdrawal over ECU plans


Why have they allowed the standard ECU bikes more petrol? They believe the manufacturers can get equivalent HP with lower fuel usage with their factory ECUs. Straight away that tells you the value of prototype racing! Anything that can trickle down to the road bikes in terms of improved power vs MPG ratios is of value to the manufacturer. It is not about robotizing the bike. It is well documented that Stoner turned down the traction control to almost zero to suit his riding style. It is about improving the fundamentals including handling, tyre performance, fuel consumption etc etc. All of this GP development has trickled down to the road bikes of today.
