MotoGP » Colin Edwards: 'Faith and feel'

"Evidently there's a world of difference between WSBK and MotoGP. Edwards, 2X WSBK champ and a non winner in MotoGP Spies, WSBK champ his rookie year and 1 win only in MotoGP." Sake could be said about 250/moto 2 not every moto2/250 champ has won a premiership race it's just the fact that the majority of the riders are from moto 2/250 and wsbk riders these days are blips on the radar. In the past 250 wasn't a prerequisite to 500/motogp success by any means. Jonathan Rea achieves a 7th and an eigth place results with almost no time on the bike with a full preseason testing what would a rider like him be capable of??? Who knows

MotoGP » Guy Coulon (Tech 3) - Q&A

"Maybe someone can tell me why are we using naturally aspirated engines on racing motorcycles? Because I cannot see any reason to use them at all." Well non naturally aspirated engines aren't exactly a new concept either the first four stroke engine first appeared in the 1850's and the first supercharger in the 1880's so both conepts are ober 100+ yo. Is there a problem with fuel consumption and power on a motorcycle no there isn't. Sure my rvf400 only produces 55hp or so and goes faster or slower depending on how much I way and handles significantly different with various fuel loads 95% of the time I don't wish it had more power. I also own a gsxr600 and by no means does that bike require more power. Don't forget either that at the TT this year the superstock bikes were lapping as fast as the full senior superbikes 131mph. I don't see any need for superchargers racing or otherwise power and fuel consumption has never been an issue imo.

MotoGP » Guy Coulon (Tech 3) - Q&A

Well Guy confirmed my view on electronics. They don't make you faster and are not required to make a rider go faster. They reduce the amount of mistakes a rider makes and reduces thise ham fisted moments where the rider spins the rear a bit to much ultimately preserving tyre life over 27 laps or however long a race is these days. Stoner didn't need electrinics to go fast he made that loud and clear what he never went into detail on was their effect over 27 laps. I don't agree with his view on wsbk riders I think their is a reason why Yamaha and Herve make the decisions regarding rider selection. If anything Tech 3 have had the most wsbk riders in the team in recent years. Team texas, and Cal all of which did a respectable job but their has been plenty of 250/moto 2 champs that have done nothing special.

MotoGP » Guy Coulon (Tech 3) - Q&A

@Painless Well a supercharger won't solve the linear power issue at all. If anything a supercharger will require more elctronics at lower rpm as the torque curves will be shifted lower in the rev range Ducati already has an engine with so much torque that the engine will still accelerate at low rpms with and the throttle closed. If electronics are the problem you are trying to get around then no a supercharger or smaller engine capacity won't eliminate desire for manufacturers thirst flr electronics. The only way to eliminate electronics is to go back to carbs with no ecu but thats a huge step backwards with tech.

WSBK » Lyubimova: Financial reasons forced Yakhnich exit

@Ben 1 They were fairly vague about the reason the round was dropped political reasons were stated. Imo government funding has maybe been pulled. Or for some of the tragedy that involved Nicollo Antonelli (RIP) is a bit fresh in peoples minds and was a race that shouldn't have gone ahead given the conditions. The track does have a contract till 2021 but as we all know the world doesn't operate on a free lunch business model.
