MotoGP Race And Practice Results

2008 Indianapolis Warmup Results - Stoner Back In Charge

The weather looks like it is holding off, and the race should be run more or less on schedule, at 3pm. There is talk of the MotoGP race being pulled forward in place of the 250 race, so that MotoGP would start at 1.15pm local time, and 250 at 3pm, but there's no confirmation of that yet.

2008 Indianapolis FP3 Times Day 2 - Elias Leads Rossi In The Dry

Toni Elias showed why he is such a hot favorite as the man to sign by topping this morning's free practice session, which started damp but dried out eventually. The Spaniard finished ahead of Valentino Rossi and the two Repsol Honda team mates, Nicky Hayden heading up Dani Pedrosa. Pedrosa is getting up to speed very quickly on the Bridgestones in the dry, but is still struggling in the wet, something which overcame Rossi earlier in the year.

Ben Spies was the fastest Suzuki rider, casting doubts on the wisdom of signing the veteran Capirossi over the American youngster. Poor Ant West has gone from hero to zero once again, finishing bottom of the pile, after heading yesterday's sessions.

2008 Indianapolis FP2 Times Day 1 - West And Vermeulen Rule In Wet

The rain continued during the afternoon's session, and the usual suspects rose to the top of the pile. Ant West and Chris Vermeulen were quickest, with West the clear leader by over 3/4 of a second. With rain predicted for the entire weekend, Indianapolis could turn out to be West's swan song. If he's this far ahead already, just think what could happen on Sunday.

2008 Indianapolis FP1 Times Day 1 - Ant West Shines In The Rain

It's raining in Indy, so it must be Ant West's day in the sun. West, Alex de Angelis and Casey Stoner are the only riders to be close, the rest are a little way behind. At the rear of the field, Dani Pedrosa is finding that switching tire makes in the middle of the season is a long way from being a quick fix to his perceived problems.

2008 Brno Warmup Times - Stoner Fastest, Hayden Sits Session Out

Nicky Hayden took no part in proceedings during warmup, electing to sit out the session to spare his heel injury. He is likely to race. Casey Stoner was in obvious pain from his wrist, but that didn't stop him from stomping all over the opposition again.
