2011 Brno MotoGP Sunday Post-Race Round Up: If We Didn't See The Future Today, We'll See It Tomorrow

Race day turned up plenty of surprises at Brno, some good, some bad, and some, well, just surprising. The three races turned up a tense duel, a full-on fairing-banging barnstormer and, well, a MotoGP race with a surprise podium, and proved that the layout of the Brno circuit is one of the very best in the world.

The 125cc race saw Sandro Cortese win from Johann Zarco, but more importantly, it saw Zarco claw back a whole host of points from Nico Terol after the Bankia Aspar rider was forced out of the race with a mechanical problem. Zarco would once again be denied victory, coming home 2nd to Sandro Cortese, but Zarco's championship prospects improved drastically, cutting Terol's lead from 32 to just 12 points, and throwing the title race open again.

In the Moto2 class, Stefan Bradl is still firmly in control of the championship, but he too is starting to leak points to Marc Marquez. At Brno, Bradl limited the damage to just 4 points, and still leads by a very generous 43-point margin, but with Marquez on a roll, a single DNF by Bradl would blow the championship open again.

2011 Brno 125cc FP3 Result: Terol Leads In The Wet

Overnight rain continued into this morning at Brno, leaving the 125cc riders to start off on a very wet track. The wet conditions saw Nico Terol once more firmly ensconced at the top of the timesheets, with his main championship rival Johann Zarco three tenths behind. Conforming completely to stereotype, a couple of British riders were also fast in the rain, Danny Kent taking the 3rd spot ahead of Danny Webb. Kent has been fast all weekend, which is down in part to the that Kent now has the Aprilia RSA belonging to his absent teammate Jonas Folger, rather than the RSW he normally rides.

2011 Brno 125cc FP2 Result: Cortese Edges Zarco

Sandro Cortese has bounced back from a slow start this morning to top the timesheets during FP2 for the 125cc class at Brno. Cortese just edged out title contender Johann Zarco, who led through part of the session but came up four hundredths short of the German. Miguel Oliveira led very tight group in 3rd, ahead of Sergio Gadea, Danny Kent, Alberto Moncayo, Nico Terol and Efren Vazquez. The difference between Oliveira in 3rd and Vazquez in 9th was less than a quarter of a second.

The summer break is over for the 125cc class, and Nico Terol has taken up where he left off. The Bankia Aspar rider dominated FP1, ending the session with a lead over over a second at the Brno circuit. In 2nd, Alberto Moncayo held off challenges from Johann Zarco, while Miguel Oliveira finished in 4th, just ahead of his Blusens teammate Maverick Viñales.

Nicky Hayden Tests The Newly Resurfaced Indianapolis

As the 2012 MotoGP calendar starts to take shape, it is becoming increasingly clear that Indianapolis Motor Speedway wants to be a part of it. In response to complaints from a number of riders about the varying surfaces around Indy's road course, IMS has taken it upon itself to completely resurface the interior section of the road course, from Turn 5, where the riders leave the historic oval for the second time, all the way through to Turn 16, where the road course rejoins the oval once again to head along the front straight. Resurfacing the entire infield just for 2011 - this being the final year of Indianapolis Motor Speedway's contract with MotoGP - seems a rather expensive thing to do, and is a clear sign that Indy is hoping to be a firm fixture on the calendar for the foreseeable future. Once Austin joins the MotoGP calendar in 2013, this would see three races take place in the US, with the Texan circuit joining Indianapolis and Laguna Seca.
