WSBK » Haslam ‘excited’ by new engine spec

I wouldn't be surprised if he loses his seat or if he stays at Pata. He's in good standing with Ten Kate and with Honda, having won the Suzuka 8 Hours last year and going to defend it this year, but has never really recovered his 2010 form. Showed some flashes on the BMW but I think his confidence took a big hit when Melandri knocked him off at Donington and denied him a win. Wouldn't be at all surprised to see Neil Tuxworth sign him for next year's BSB Honda return.

BSB » Jenny Tinmouth back for BSB 2014

All the best to Jenny, just getting to where she has is an achievement. As others have said though, I fear it will be more of the same this year. On a par with Colin Edwards saying he'll be top 5 in MotoGP this year or Pata Honda challenging consistently with the same ancient bikes, everyone talks themselves up pre-season.

RR » TT blow for Hutchinson and Brookes

It really is quite farcical that the three major international road races of the year operate under different rules. It seems logical to me, given the geographical locations of these races and the most successful teams of recent years, to use the same rules as BSB. For example, the Padgetts team re-entered BSB because the new rules there made it economically viable for them having been a purely support classes and RR team for many years. I have no allegiance to any particular manufacturer, but I have to say that I'm rather annoyed with Honda over their political manoeuvrings, particularly over the proposed control ECU in MotoGP.

WSBK » Bimota announces Alstare-run WSBK EVO entry

Honestly, I don't really care about lap records. I want to see good, close racing and that's something we've seen precious little of in MotoGP or WSBK over the last few years. EVO has been good for BSB, we've got decent sized grids and good racing for the most part. The only worry is that the manufacturers will get sillier with the amount of stock horsepower and electronics their bikes have.
