Re: Spanish Civil War! (Michael Scott article from MCN)

Indeed, but don't forget how much money the BBC used to pump in to ensure there was a British rider in the mix. The 'manipulation' isn't new. Scott's article was typical of a syndicated column filler. Few hundred words wrapped around a couple of sentences of off-handed commentary. But that's his ta...

Re: Hondas Production Racer MotoGP Machine

That is great news, considering Bluesens spent 600k Euro on the Kawasaki based bike the HRC machine is looking very good. This is the rule that should have been introduced at the start of the 4T era. Every second tier team would be looking very hard at that package, with the option of upgrading or s...

Re: Saarinen/Pasolini incident. Monza '73.

Jan Thiel has put a lot of his thoughts on FB as he was there that dark day at Monza. Classic Racer has a great article on Jarno and more about the big impact he made in a short period.

Re: Yamaha goings on.

I'd be very interested to see how those times compare to SBK shift times, particularly the Yamaha's. 35ms to shift a standard transmission is amazingly quick as it is. 35ms is the time interval you shift with a quickshift connected to a 30 yr old gearbox. The Patents for the HRC system and Zeroshif...

The circuit owner reported them to the police, the police came, and Goldman tried to do a runner. They failed. Got flung in ...

Track days at the farm are $600 no drama to get a start, get more riding than 2 days at Eastern Creek. My friend who got his pilots licence at Warnervale airport told me about this at least 10yrs ago, it wasn't as big back then and he used to call it a 'driveway'.
