Re: WSBK in 2020

I rate Leon Camier too, I think fully fit on the Duke may spring a surprise or too. Really admired Sykes when he turned the Kwak into a race winning bike and then the championship but I felt he came across poorly when him and Baz didn't get on well

Re: BSB 2020

I'm pretty optimistic it'll happen, perhaps without spectators though. Hopeful that by October the virus is losing the battle :D

BSB 2020

BSB starting in August, six rounds with three superbike races each weekend and no showdown. Organisers hoping to allow spectators so here's hoping I can make my annual pilgrimage to Brands Hatch in October :D

Re: 2020 road racing line up

Me too Mike, the crisis has scuppered every 40th birthday present I had. Ice speedway in Holland cancelled, NW200 cancelled, TT cancelled :( However, there is nobody to blame for this situation ( lets not get into any conspiracies about China!!!!!) and as long as the cancellation of these events is ...

Racing in Britain 2020

With today's media reports about the proposed length of social distancing I'd be surprised if any of us get to see live racing this year :( I fear that BSB might not happen at all and that WSB and Moto GP will be closed door affairs at best

Re: Qatar Moto2+3 2020-03-08

** Spoilers within ** I've seen a reasonably long highlights of the Moto2 race. It was a cracking race, with a number of new faces at the front. However, Roberts and Nagashima are both riders with considerable experience in Moto2. Why did they suddenly shine this time? Nagashima started to shine a ...

I read today clerk of the course Noel Johnston has resigned, he believes under the right management the race can continue and if that happens wouldn't rule out a return. Suggests to me he has no faith in the current management team

Re: Moto GP schedual and the corona virus...

Unless things settle quickly I think crowds are going to be low at the majority of rounds, obviously locals will still turn out but there would be no point in arranging a trip to any foreign meeting just now.

In answer to your question in the first paragraph, no I don't because I wasn't making reference to the situation in Iran. Obviously given what your friend describes the situation there is bugger all like what I'm referring to back in the majority of Western Europe. For too long the west has meddled ...

Re: Moto GP schedual and the corona virus...

Is it just me or is there a complete over reaction to coronavirus? The BBC are reporting a death rate of between 1 and 2% and deaths are almost completely in the elderly cross section of the population, almost all of whom have underlying health conditions. Surely these people can be advised to stay ...

Re: WSBK in 2020

Love Toprak, really wish he'd got the second Kwak to get a bit of needle between him and Jonny. Maybe in the longer term Yamaha will be more likely to bear Moto GP fruit!!!!

Apparently Hutchison's out in Monteblanco with the BSB paddock riding an R6, it's been suggested he'll do the NW200 on it but haven't read anything about any arrangements for stock 1000 or superbike

The outdoor natural ice tracks in Eastern Eurpoe are renowned for rutting up, when they get to the indoor tracks in Germany and Holland the ice generally holds together far better. Here's 'at weekends round in Togliatti, Russia

Re: New Zealand Superbikes, 600, Supertwins etc.

What do you guys make of Shane Richardson? Think he was helped over to the BSB paddock by a certain Peter Hickman who raced over your way last xmas/ new year
