MotoGP » Forward Racing confirms MotoGP exit

owlockey: Forward want to bring MV back into MotoGP in 2017, whether that will happen or not i'm not sure, but with the new rules that will be put in place in 2017 if a factory is joining it has to join with an existing team such as LCR or Aspar, and seen as Forward aren't in MotoGP they might not be able to, unless they will let the Moto2 team graduate back into MotoGP.
As I said in another thread, very unlikely. Forward were always late in paying staff and riders and the latest scandal has ruined them MotoGP wise. KTM will be more likely replacing them but not until 2017.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden made a MotoGP Legend

Deano B: So given your criteria for 'Legend staus' that means Colin Edwards should of been given the same when he retired.
Edwards could've been a world champ in 500cc if that idiot Frenchman didn't punt him off in Monza 1998. Colin's whole MotoGP career was developing bikes/teams (Aprilia, Tech 3, Forward) and backing up his teammate's title tilts (Gibernau, Rossi). If we're going to criticise how Hayden only has 1 title and shouldn't be a legend, why has no one criticised Kato and Simoncelli being there? Where are comments that they're only there because of circumstances like Hayden? To me, if you win a MotoGP title and you obviously had the talent to win a MotoGP title (across all classes, even 125 and 250), you are a legend. You had the skill, the courage and the package to win a championship. That makes you a legend. Simple. And Hayden did it in a straight fight with Rossi. Says it all really.

MotoGP » Rossi: Shame to see Bridgestone go

Ammar: year with the single electronics, tires and rules (engines and all), it would have been a really awesome chance for a level playing field (with bridgetsones) seeing how mitchellins seem to be causing unexpected crashes, there is a chance that next years title may depend largely on luck..Yamaha seems to be the most stable bike and even their riders crashed so many times during testing..and thats still testing..think how someone like Marc will fare when pushing to the max.... and I am still not considering f*ck ups which happen due to lack of data about the a Philip Island like scenario where Mitch may bring in a wrong tire compund real shame...
Hasn't Edwards been to Aus twice this year for testing? I guess they're ahead of Bridgestone in that aspect in looking at PI's new surface and what have you. Next year will definitely be a huge shake up.

WSBK » Forward partners up with MV Agusta in WSBK, WSS

ducfer: Melandri?Does it his way,when he does it.What gains might bring his talent,which is good but not great,are lost with his attitude. Rumors in Italy suggest Forward is targeting a return with MV in 2017 in motogp.
Highly unlikely. Forward's reputation in MotoGP was already near breaking point due to staff and riders not getting paid yet the owner could buy a new helicopter or whatever and now the last scandal has ruined any chance of redemption. A rumor with more fact is KTM will be fielding a factory team in their place in 2017. Also, has anyone actually seen a NGM Mobile store/advertisement anywhere? Apart from logos on the bike, I've never seen anything related to them outside of MotoGP.
