F1 » Mosley happy to accept 'blame' for F1’s new soundtrack

"Mosley argues that, far from F1 receding from its position as the supposed technological leader in motorsport, F1 can begin writing a new chapter via its introduction of greener ideas." In racing the only thing that matters is going faster and this green tech hasn't made the cars go any faster why race if you ain't making tech to go faster, but instead racing to meet other objectives. Sounds like propaganda for a different agenda other than racing. “I wear [hearing aids] in both my ears because the noise of the engines went right through me for 40 years or more. It's too late to save my hearing, but not for the next generation. The quieter engines are better for families. You can take children to races without fear of their being deafened." Should have worn ear plugs/muffs little kids aren't interested in dull sounding econo runs and mums and dads generally don't like to speed with their children onboard anyway. F1 has bbeen crowd friendky for years now it just appeals to a smaller

MotoGP » Ben Spies: There’s one kid who could cut it…

"Just look at Casey Stoner, Mick Doohan, Gary Hocking, Jim Redman, Kenny Roberts, Jon Ekerold, Kork Ballington, Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Rainey." Spouting off many names that mainly raced in a different era and situation to now doesn't prove anything. The most recent recognizable name you mention is Casey Stoner who risked alot the whole way through his career and never had an easy time. All it shows is you don't have full appreciation of the situation. The biggest difficulty for Australian and US teams before they go racing even domestically is geography. Here in Australia the ASBK series will go from Sydney to Melbourne to Darwin to Perth to Tasmania to Queensland moving bikes by truck, trailer etc. The miles alone to transport bikes and equipment is immense let alone having the best bikes and equipment. This is the reason we have 2 series an ASBK series and a de facto series based mainly in the east coast of Australia. Now I'd imagine in the US it would be a similar challenge but

MotoGP » Ben Spies: There’s one kid who could cut it…

I'm pretty dissapointed with Domestic series outside of Europre and the UK especially here in Aus and the US. Lucky for me I got to see what Josh Herrin could do before AMA SBK programming was dropped from Speed Australia. Cameron Baubier is news to me though, I'll take Spies word for it he's never come across as the spin doctor type. The mess we have here in Aus is just as bad we have talent but we don't have it in the right places formula extreme and ASBK our best guys don't get to push each other to their limits locally on decent equipment. Hopefully all this evo wsbk change thats being talked up will mean our guys can wildcard on equipment thats capable of running at the front. Same in the US. Also the size of the US and Australia puts our teams at a disadvantage to European based teams as well.

MotoGP » Hayden: Honda’s not going to sleep through this

" he isn't a factory Honda rider so there not going to do anything he wants anytime soon.." Exactly whether or not Honda like or dislike the situation and whether or not they do ananything about the bike will depend on one thing and one thing only. The all mighty dollar... You buy a cut price racer thats what you get a cut price racer. Honda will probably do the opposite in spite of Hayden and not upgrade the bike quickly. Stop whinging bagging on Honda ain't going to do you any good. Just get on with it.
