MotoGP » MotoGP top speeds ‘medium-term concern’

When was the last time there was a major accident due to high speeds? Back in 1957 bikes where reaching 170mph Moto Guzzi 500 V8 that engine was fitted into a chassis with tyres and brakes that would scare any man. Crashes have almost always happened whilst the bike is on the brakes or in the corners. So what do the governing bodies do to try and make things safer? Stick more silly chicanes and bends in the circuit to try and slow things down causing more mayhem!! In doing so deprive us of all the fantastic circuits such as Spa, Monza and the like. I'm all for safety, but lowering top speeds will not make the sport any safer

MotoGP » Marquez: 'Impossible to race two grand prix classes!'

LLarry: Wasn't impossible for Freddie Spencer. Or Giacomo Agostini Or Phil Read Or Bill Ivy Or Jim Redman Or Mike Hailwood And numerous others.
And he gave you just a few of the reasons it wouldnt be feasible today. Back in the good ole days, when the race was over, there was no data to crunch, there was no endless appearance commitments, and most importantly, there were no 220 mph bikes and all the physical requirements that go with a 220 mph bike.
And no electronics'- traction control, no air fence and big balls circuits, if you think that those old bikes were not physical your very much mistaken. Times have moved on, but never take it away from any rider no matter what the era, all of them put it on the line when they went to the grid. Back in there day it was more a necessity to race more than one class, they lived out the back of a van no corporate hospitality back then

MotoGP » Marquez: Rossi will feel 22 again at Mugello!

Back on topic, Dorna FIM can we please drop the fuel and tyre restrictions and let see these bikes and riders really go head to head?!! This championship it suppose to be prototype racing best bikes best riders. Not a guessing game of who's going to shred his tyres or run out of fuel. MM is good but he's also got the best package at the moment and with now the rest have no chance of modifying the engine " l'll bet any money that that rule would get change if Honda was on the back foot". Rossi the best of the rest due to him be able to get the best out of what he's got, Lorenzo head his fried having had the tyres he needs to ride the only way he knows. A few extra Lts of fuel and tyre restrictions lifted then we can get back to having a proper championship
