Re: BSB 2021

Hello Apical, just so you know Brookes can definitely not win the title this year. Shame about his spills at treacherous Donington.

I've got a Sunday ticket for Brands, hoping for dry weather and some great title fighting racing. Ideally we get something like Hill v Hopkins from 2011

Re: Dialogue on The Dangers of Racing

I feel like splitting races would barely reduce the risk as the formula remains the same hence the chance of big groups of riders remain the same. From what I believe the Dupasquier and Vinales accidents involved riders immediately behind, ie no flag, dashboard or even track warning light system wou...

Aprilia aren't known for treating their riders well but fair play to their unconditional support for Vinales. Best wishes to him and the family

Re: BSB 2021

I have a feeling that the 30 point lead might grow at Oulton Park though, McKenzie has traditionally not gone well there whilst O'Halloran has.

We'll see in a couple of weeks.

Re: World SBK in 2021

If he embraced Toprak saying well done but i think you went on the green, then came over and asked Riba to check the on board it's fair enough. Doubt it though and interested to hear what both say about it in their next interviews. Think the problem lies with how two faced it appeared. Well done Top...

Re: World SBK in 2021

Toprak gained no advantage out of his infringement onto the green as was exhibited by Rea overtaking him in the next corner I know what you're saying, but if it had been grass over the edge of the track who knows what would have happened eg Toprak's bike may have become unsettled whilst rejoining t...

Re: World SBK in 2021

I feel like the cordial accommodation offered was purely down to Rea believing Toprak was a fierce competitor who he would have the beating of on the majority of occasions. Now that Toprak has demonstrated he is not just going to fight for race wins and is well and truly a championship competitor, I...

Re: Silly Season

Fair comment, but something happened at Yamaha. Think about how he went in the first 5-6 races for them. I feel like Yamaha made a mountain out of a molehill with the over revving of the engine thing to experiment with potential riders for next year. I've always owned and love Yamaha's but I hope Ma...

Re: Petronas

I read that Dixon is likely to have a go on the M1 at Aragon, think I said it elsewhere but I think he did a solid job last weekend despite my comments above. Allegedly his teammate Vierge turned the chance down because the B spec bike isn't competitive and he has no chance of a full time ride on it...

Re: Lolly Water British Gp

Just watching FP1 a wee bit behind real time. I've fairly often given Jake Dixon a bit of a hard time and this ride is mainly to do with his passport............. but two and a bit seconds off the pace at the end of his first run is a very very solid start. Well played Sir

Re: BSB 2021

That must be a change this year, used to be top 6. I think your fellow Aussie O'Halloran will be a difficult man to beat, he's going well everywhere although in the past he's suffered some fairly bad luck

Re: BSB 2021

Location; Little Budworth in Cheshire, doesn't that sound cute. Deer leap, Island bend, Knickerbrook, I like corners with names. One last quirky little thing about Oulton is that there's a little church just outside the circuit grounds at Druids. For that reason not a wheel turns before midday on a...

Re: BSB 2021

Went to Oulton Park for round one, it's a lovely wee circuit although at some points the fences keep you a long way from the track. The exit of Druids gives some spectacular photographs, I remember one in particular of Brookes way back in his HM Plant Honda days was incredible

Re: BSB 2021

Brookes is always a slow starter, usually does no harm with the showdown format. Fairly sure its a showdown year again so he'll be a threat. Dont think any of you mentioned the impressive Peter Hickman. Lost over two stone for this season and basically said because there's no road racing this year h...

Re: Petronas

McPhee has shown he is capable at Grand Prix level, winning races and frequently near the front. One of his flaws I feel is that he's almost too soft for the madness of Moto3. He often gets bullied towards the back of the front group and ends up getting caught up in someone elses incident, I feel if...
