Re: Racing circuit pantheon

We have a new turn 10 at Montmelo Barcelona Catalunya. I hope it turns out to be a good one. If the racing is good there I will be happy What do you think CLX? Turn 10 was a dangerous place and the wall to close. Remember Marc's 2015 crash chasing Lorenzo. I don't think it'll ever return. QATAR Do y...

The old boy might surprise ???? if not Yamaha for the win.. :mrgreen:
Excellent prediction Roogazza, yes Yamaha wins again.

V.R.46 was duffed up by a KTM. Brad Binder I think, pushed Rossi wide. once the door was opened 5 bikes went through. Kinda ruined Rossi's race.

Re: Remy Gardner

Thanks for that Mikesbytes, interesting prediction. Three newbies for 2022 and Remy Gardner could be one of them. R.G.87 has the wrong passport of corse! I predict one Spanish rider, one Italian, (maybe Marco Bezzecchi). Remy could be the 0.7 if he wants to move up to MotoGp. He has only recently tu...

Re: New Zealand Superbikes, 600, Supertwins etc.

Another viral disappointment! Round 3 of the New Zealand tiles postponed. Covid 19 again.

Looks like it may go ahead later. The round at Taupo scheduled for the coming weekend may well be effected to.

That's racing.

I am not there this year. So having a bit of a look on the interwebs from time to time. Not much change, that I can see, from last season. Damon Rees is one of the best NZ riders and would be around top six or top ten in ASBK. https://roadracingnews.co.uk/road-racers-adventures-new-zealand-superbike...

Latest information says 7 day mandatory quarantine on arrival in Qatar. So maybe more than a month. The extra test is confirmed as a replacement for the Sepang test.

I will wait and see what develops.

On my personal calendar, we were allowed to pass through Victoria. I'm in Tasmania!
