WSBK » Lowes: Ideally we’d have no electronics

BikeWatch: @RSMick Actually active suspension is banned in WSBK. It was allowed when Spies romped the field in 2009 but it is no longer available. Also I'm pretty sure GPS is allowed in MotoGP. Cal Crutchlow recently had a problem with his bike thinking he was at different corners of the track. Was it Qatar? Or COTA? Anywho, apologies if I'm mistaken.
Cal's problem was due to failure of the lap timing transponder that registers every time you cross the start/finish line. They used that to datum the bike's position every lap instead of using gps, which is banned. ironically it's a Dorna issued component. The likes of Honda say that they use motogp to develop electronics for streetbikes but I can't for the life of me see that technology transferring to the street. A different engine map when you're in a 30 limit perhaps (although it'd be ****ing annoying) but a different setting for every corner? I don't think so

MotoGP » Rossi mistake ends Marquez victory battle

I think Rossi was about to use the tactics that were so successful against Casey Stoner at Laguna that time. Stoner had a similar level of superiority over the field that day but Rossi messed up his rhythm and teased a mistake out of him. Of course Stoner wasn't as much of a racer as Marc and the ploy probably needs a certain amount of hatred to work. Would've been interesting to watch though. Roll on Mugello
