Re: Top 5 MotoGP Races

Five is not enough but here goes; Suzuka 1998 Rossi steps up to 250cc Gp Max Biaggi Jumps up to 500s to get away from VR46.

Re: Silly Season 2017

Congratulations to Cal Crutchlow. He has been the test rider doing lots of work all this year, all the off season & some of last year. No point using a slow test rider is there.

Re: Ducati - Rossi vs Lorenzo

At least Jorge Lorenzo has not knocked the number one Repsol Honda rider off his bike in a race. V.R. 46 lost me when he went to apologize to C.S. 27 With his Helmet ON. is not only what it sounds like, but imho a fact. CS is the most talented rider I've had the privilige of seeing over the +/- 30 y...

Re: Racing circuit pantheon

Dear Kropotkin I would like to discuss the classic tracks with the forum. I was pleased to see this comment "When I have a moment, I will be in here to comment. First, I have to finish work on Le Mans." I can wait until you have the time. I am interested to read any comment you would like to share.

I see what you are posting CLX but I don't agree. Some of these great tracks do no...
