MotoGP » Sepang II MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)


My guess is the top riders out there, minus Marquez out of test due to leg issue, are testing items and aren't seeking to make best laps as Rossi noted in his comments. It will be interesting to see if Bridgestone makes concessions or sticks to there current '14 tire. My guess is if enough riders complain I'm sure they'll have to make adjustments. As others noted that come race weekend the usual characters up front will be there again.

WSBK » Guintoli: I’m finally back on the top step…


Guintoli did much better than I thought and while I wouldn't crown him yet he's definitely showing some potential to be in the race for a championship. But let's see a few more races to get a better gauge on how well some riders/bikes will do. Nevertheless, it was great to see motorbike racing again and it looks like we may see more riders fighting for wins and podiums which is only good for the season.

MotoGP » MotoGP Factory, Open class 'should be a difficult decision'


It's understandable on both sides of the argument. Yes would it be nice if Motogp stayed pure prototype but the series isn't just for one manufacturer to improve it's bike at the expense of all others. Should they be punished for other manufacturers lack of investment and technological know how, no but the reality is that for the series to survive it needs to keep the interest of it's fans and to bring in new fans. If you only have one manufacturer or occasionally two that produces you get what we see now. While everyone may not agree with Dorna trying to set standards such as an ECU it make sense to keep costs down and to make the bikes a little closer technology wise. Eliminating or limiting TC and setting a standard total bike/rider weight should be next. As someone else noted Honda is using ECU's as a smoke screen as they have plenty of R&D funding, test riders and tracks to advance the ECU and related tech for their road products.
