Re: Danny Kent

Whoaaa!! Thank you very much for that. I can’t get the stupid grin off my face.
I’m not into the whole “bucket list” thing but hearing that makes me think I now have a list of one item. :D

Re: MotoGP Rnd 10 Gran Premio Michelin® de Aragón

Really felt for Quartararo - haven't yet read what happened to him. Was it injuries from the two offs on Saturday or bike issues? Runaway tyre pressure I've read. Don't know exactly what that means The Race podcast said because they ran the medium front with no data from practice they guessed the s...

Re: Dovi done with Ducati after 2020

Good on him for calling their bluff. I wonder who they will sign to partner Jack? Not quite sure if Pecco is there just yet. Zarco? I don’t know either. It’s hard for me to see the Lorenzo talk as anything other than a media beat up but I suppose he does have time to get back in shape before next se...

Re: MotoGP R4 0908 Monster Energy Grand Prix České republiky Automotodrom Brno CZECH

Yep completely agree Antipodean, it's cruel that this has happened to Dovi (for whatever reason) on the one year Marc is not there. Toby Moody and Neil Spalding were hypothesising on 'The Race' podcast (latest one well worth a listen) that the ride to 11th in Brno might effectively have been signal...

The more info Crafar gives about his history (esp off bike) and relationships in the paddock the more it makes sense. He really seems to get welcome access to many of the ...

Re: Bros, the Honda problem is more serious than I thought

The HRC Honda is between 6-7kph slower than last year while all the other manufacturers are up on last year. I was wrong about the Aprilia, its a good bit faster than last year, they are just so far behind its hasn't translated into results, they need much more. https://wvwupg.bl3301.livefilestore....

Re: MotoGP 2015, Sepang

I can't agree with the idea that it was a kick that made Marquez crash - it just doesn't gel with my experiences on a bike, there's just too much mass and momentum involved IMO unless you kicked the clip-on or brake lever maybe. I do think it was a rank move by Rossi, a "hand of god" moment if you l...

Re: JR Racing BMW - Troy Corser's team, 2015

Does Corser have the package and funding sorted? Pretty sure the "JR" in JR Racing is a wealthy investor from the Dominican Republic IIRC. Corser was discussing it as guest commentator at Magny Cours. JR must be loaded/well connected, as Corser was talking about the possibility of a circuit being c...
