Re: Red Flag ring in the pantheon?

Should we consider the RedFlagring's eligibility to join the pantheon? Spellchecker suggests Redlining as an alternative spelling. Meaning Österreichring, A-1ring, whatever, at Spielberg, Syria, Austria (no kangaroos). Best and fastest motorcycle low altitude flying, with & without wings. Honorable ...

Re: MotoAmerica 2021

Brainerd Minnesota this weekend.

As far as I know MotoAmerica hasn't raced there recently. Should be a new circuit for many of the racers.

Will Loris Baz get his first race win? We'll see.

Good result for Ducati, although Brookesy needs to improve if he wants to keep that number 1!

Re: ASBK Superbike championship

Hidden Valley also, ask Troy Herfoss. The recent round was a 2 plus 4 meeting. Car people don't understand mot...

Re: Round 8 - German GP (Sachsenring)

Sachsenring, Saxon-ring or Saxono? What's in a name? A nose by another name would smell. I like Sachsenring, almost all corners, 3 straights. All Fun! Fun to watch or on the video game. Probably a work-out on a MotoGp bike. All those turns would possibly make me dizzy after 30 laps. Hard work for th...
