Re: Racing circuit pantheon

Portugal, fine by me. Estoril is on the list on the first page. Shall we add Portimao ? I am not familiar with the circuito de Algarve but it looks a cracker on the tele ? what do we reckon ?

Re: Racing circuit pantheon

Today I had my first look at the Australian superbike schedule for 2018. they are going to this new track in South Australia, "The Bend" location Tailem bend on the Murray river in South Australia. I can visit my father in law while I'm there.

Re: Jonathan Rea 2018?

Oh that's right I read that interview. I didn't think about that. I was thinking about how I might get some talent for my team. maybe my sub-conscious doesn't believe our friend Pit Beirer? I was speculating, thinking about Jonathan, Green K, Orange K. It's the off season, no real news. Will KTM's u...

Jonathan Rea on a KTM MotoGP bike in 2019?

Jonathan will not go to MotoGp unless "they ... give me a pretty good incentive to leave" Kawasaki aint going back to Motogp. have a look at the numbers. Thanks Kropotkin. KTM are spending BIG money & want to get the best fastest riders available. riders available; MM93 seems unlikely to leave Honda...

Re: Racing circuit pantheon Catalunya

Looks like Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is going to be "improved" for want of a better word. From what I have seen they will move the wall twenty meters 20 metres away from the track at Turn 13. that means that turns 13 & 14 should be restored to their former glory!!

Re: 2018 WSBK

Well Fingernails I hope to get to at least one round of BSB in 2018. Donington park 31 March- 2 April followed by BSB Brands Hatch 13 -15 April. Two weeks apart should work well & be much fun. I think the U.K. talent cup is on at Donington same weekend with BSB.

Re: What's going on with Bradley Smith & KTM ?

I agree with MikesBytes One more angle could be that KTM wants riders to know that they are secure at KTM. Sacking a rider part way thru a contract doesn't give others a positive impression of the manufacturer, would you feel secure at Aprilia? KTM will be looking for a MM93 or JLo99 or Mav25 to rid...

If the rain is intermittent & surface is sketchy Lorenzo won't be ahead of Dovi. I hope it does not come t...

Sorry Roogazza the weather looks dodgy at Motegi this weekend. Cold & wet from Wednesday is the forecast. 50 or 60% chance of rain Friday, sat & Sunday.

Hello MikesBytes. G'day. we must have been at Amaroo on the same day, Back in 1984 I was racing 250 proddy. Jane Litterick crashed at Ron Hodgson corner. R.I.P. only the good die young. That still spins me out. yeah man I have raced at those three tracks. Oran park was good when the surface was OK. ...

Re: GWR (great wee roads)

Pantah I am so jealous. Surfaced like a racetrack..... Where I am in Australia the road maintenance is very poor. Mainly my local council area, not the entire country. The roads have great corners but the surface is rubbish, bumps, potholes, loose gravel & dead animals. Have a look at Mount Darragh ...

Remove Jonathan Rea from WSBK & the race is slightly less predictable. Still nowhere near as interesting as the good old days. Satisfying to see Yamaha improving & getting good results. Aprilia doing well in SBK & motoGp! doing very well for a smaller manufacturer. MV Agusta, dear oh dear so disappo...

The Ducatis should do well at Motegi. the circuit with five dragstrips of varying lengths. Saying that the HRC Hondas should...

Maybe we will get that Marquez x Vinales showdown that we have been waiting all season for. Perhaps JLo99 will be in the mix as well. there could be a bunch of riders desperate to be the first Spaniard across the finish line. Hoping for a good race.
