MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident


I believe the shredded tires would be full wet material as it should handle water better. (Smiley Face)

Tetley:
MotoMarc: I'd suggest very low curbs on the corners followed with a little tarmac ( allow rider correction then return to the track)
Sounds well worth a try, with the curbs progressively corrugated as in my earlier comment.
then the shredded tire runoff material.
Not quite so sure about shredded tyre, but I can't pinpoint why. Would the shredded tyre be Slick, full wet, or intermediate compound ? (Smiley Face).

WSBK » Foret confirms plans to quit WSBK, WSS


A talented rider that should have had more championships. Maybe he should stayed in WSS as it he was good on those bikes. Not everyone makes the transition to superbikes because of the power, weight and format of that series. Sounds like his new endeavors will make the transition to retirement a better one. Hope him lots of luck and success.

Don't know the exact rules but if a racer crosses beyond the painted curb/corner lines and runs across by making a straight line through the turn then I think they can be penalized as that would give them an advantage over other riders using the proper lines through a turn. But I'm sure that is up to the officials to recognize then properly enforce.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident


Obviously they'd use only the rubber part of tires not metal parts. They use shredded tires on running tracks and other fields and I've never seen metal pieces in tire pieces they use.

pogo:....As for shredded tyres, I would worry about the sharp bits of metal from the carcass. Its simple, if you gain an advantage (gain a place) by running off the track then you give that place back (as I the rule at the moment) if it is merely a time gain,

Astroturf seems dangerous but so does a hard surface as runoff. Gravel, sand or how about shredded tires as runoff material. With sufficient depth it could slow the bike and provide a softer landing area for the rider. Issue is would that work for race tracks that also have auto races? I'd suggest very low curbs on the corners followed with a little tarmac ( allow rider correction then return to the track) then the shredded tire runoff material.
