MotoGP » Six things to look out for in MotoGP 2015

Codger: 7......Ducati to fight for podiums. 8......Dovi's first win.
For any of the Factory open bikes to have a chance of winning a race they need to fluke a enough dry podiums so they lose their "bonus" tyres and can use the harder compounds like Yamaha and Honda. The soft tyres wont allow them to keep up the pace for full race distance The new tyres in 2016 are probably the best chance of seeing ducati win a race.

MotoGP » Ducati GP15 set for Sepang II debut?

mrlong: I'm sure I read something at the start of last season that they would have a new bike/ significant updates about 4/ 5 races in. If they're waiting till Sepang 2 its not leaving much time if it turnsout to be another dog.
The 4-5 races thing was when they would start making changes to the 2014 bikes. These changes resulted in the 14.1 and 14.2 bikes Dovi and Ianone were riding.

MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'

JedPB67: I've been to Donington the past 2 years helping my friends team out and it's noticeably worrying that a world championship series in 2014 that featured 22 riders (WSB and WSS combined) formerly from the MotoGP paddock can't attract a crowd 3/4 the size of a BSB crowd. There's something fundamentally wrong with that.
There are many reasons for WSB not attracting the visitor numbers of BSB... 2 I can think of from the top of my head are: Ticket Pricing... it is much cheaper to attend BSB at Donington than WSB and the racing is very similar imo. Fan Access: You don't need to pay extra to access the paddock or pit walk at BSB. The main advantage from this for me is that you can walk from the main stand to the melborne loop at a BSB meeting without needing a special ticket whereas at WSB you need to go under the track, walk along the inside and then back under the track at the Foggy Esses before finally getting to the loop.

Steve Rowe: Less viewers = less team sponsership money = less money for the teams. The works teams can afford to subsidise their own teams. But the smaller teams struggle, and are therefore uncompetitive. So, we are left with a small field and only 4 potential race winners. Why would I pay to watch that?
There has only been a small field and 4 potential race winners for a long time before everything went paid and the viewer numbers dropped.
