MotoGP » Scott Redding pulls out of TT appearance

ThatOtherGuy: The comparisons between other dangerous activities don''t stack up. People don't get killed in MotoGP or club racing or BSB every season, let alone every meeting.
I feel for Scott, as clearly he has lost 2 good friends this week, and I know how that feels. Thatotherguy, you might want to check facts before posting though. From 2000-2010 there were 20 riders/drivers killed in racing accidents in the TT. In BSB and other club rounds at British circuits 27 people were killed in the same period. It's not fair to say people don't die every season, they sadly do. Fact is Motorsport is dangerous, whatever form you do, just like mountain climbing, riding horses, scuba diving are dangerous. Those that sadly die pursuing their dreams are always remembered, regardless of what form of sport they die doing.

MotoGP » Scott Redding pulls out of TT appearance

bill.stark.12382: I have a feeling this race will be gone in the next 10 years, probably more like 5. You people in the IOM will have to find some other event for income.
Seriously, you think the TT makes money for the Isle of Man? It has been subsidised by Manx tax payes for years. One thing is for sure, a loss of this event would have no impact on the island's economy, maybe for a few personal mouths. A loss of the banking, insurance, e-gaming sectors etc might have an impct, but not the TT.

WSBK » Alex Lowes: Suzuki is the best opportunity

Tomco: Quite right, Bird has spent a lot of money but still comes over in a bad light and his riders seem to come away worse off than when they arrived. In any case Alex has made the right decision
I guess some do some don't. If you look at he likes of Sykes whom he fought and paid pesonally to keep at Kawasaki am not sure that argument holds true. Byrne aso seems to have done quite well under his wing, and he has helped Scott Redding along the way as well. I also think that Laverty has done himself the world of good riding a newly developed uncompetitive machine in MotoGP, think he has done better than what most people expected, so fair play to him and to Birdy for giving another Brit a chance. No doubt that Alex has made the right decision, but he may never get a chance in MotoGP taking the WSB route. Hope he does though, he and his brother are class riders.
