WSBK » Sykes to remain with Kawasaki in 2015, 2016

I think any decision made by Kawasaki will be dependent upon how the WSBK championship develops in the next few years if Aprilia completely abandons WSBK, Ducati doesn't improve and no other manufacturer steps up. They are the only real competitive team in the category then whats the point in continuing in a one horse race but they may just take all the glory for that anyway. Imo it all depends on how the championship evolves over the next couple of years and if viewers and teams are still interested in the series. If the series hits to big of a slump it probably won't come out of it easily if at all.

MotoGP » 50-year-old McWilliams talks grand prix return!

Ahahahhaa all I can say is givem hell Jezza and I bet he will give them as much hell as he can dish out to. Very interesting project at least the monoque design is being explored further and not just by Ducati innovation is always interesting. I hope the project all the best be cool if they could make something different work in moto2 but going up against any of the other moto2 chassis manufacturers is no small feat since chassis development is their sole purpose.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow: Trading places

Sounds like he's already given up on being successful on a factory Honda either that or he is getting his excuses out early. Let the riding do the talking Cal and ride like Cal not Casey or Jorge because your not them find your own way because I doubt you will be braking into turn 1 at Catalunya on one wheel baking it in like Marc you wont be riding like Marc either. Like Nakamoto said Hondas aren't necessarily easy bikes to ride.

WSBK » PTR scraps WSBK plans, looks to BSB

Beat me with a stick but the problem here isn't so much wsbk technical reguoations but I think PTR just can't afford to cart all there bikes around the world. The logistical costs are the biggest issue in international motorcycle racing bike spec only accounts for so much. Stepping back to bsb seems more of a logistics amd sponsorship issue but end of the day bsb is the series winning here with PBM oikely going back to bsb with 2 more bikes and PTR now likely going back there with at least one bike in the superbike class the series is set to become even stronger. As for bsb not breaking records who cares honestly it hasn't prevented Alex Lowes from being a quality rider in wsbk. Why has gp gone spec ecu and software but not wsbk its mind boggling why they haven't. If racing was about a one lap speed records we'd have different setups and tyres on the bikes.

MotoGP » Moto3: Arthur Sissis loses Mahindra seat

Sissis has said he wamts to head back to Australia get up to speed riding speedway bikes then he wants to head back to England and become a speedway rider. Bit of a shame he has alot of potential and he really showed that in the rdd bull rookies cup. I would have liked to have seen him on a moto2 bike before he called his gp career a day some riders shine on the smaller bikes but get lost on the bigger bikes. For Sissis maybe a moto2 bike would have been what he needed.

MotoGP » Crutchlow would prefer Rea as team-mate

Honda and Rea need to make this happen now not later because there won't be a later. I wouldn't take to much from Rea filling in for Stoner it just showed he is a solid rider who doesn't crash solid job but he wasn't 100% going for it he needed more time on the bike. Has Camier done a better job than Rea on the proddy bike well that's subjective the RCV riders weren't exactly Reas competition when he filled in. Different bikes in a different competition is what I'd say also different tyres. Imo Rea has the talent he's keeping that Ten Kate bike alive in WSBK maybe Honda will finally have a good replacement in Van Der Mark and Haslam to replace Rea. Miller shouldn't be rushed into gp anyway and I think there's more substance in the Laverty Pramac negotiations.

MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo debut 2015 Yamaha

"It was never like this ever in Yamahas long history." Also in the history of grand prix motorcycle racing we haven't had a situation where there were so many restrictions on fuel and engines. Yamaha didn't suddenly decide to go backwards over night since last season. It was dictated that they go backwards overnight, less fuel and engines was always going to be a problem. Did we all forget the expected effect these rules were to have on Yamaha. Honda has invested heaps of money into fuel economy in all its forms its just what Honda is interested in going as fast as possible for as cheap as possible to the end user that is. Or getting from a to b as cheap as possible in the real world.
