No parts issue for factories after Japan earthquake

Japan’s devastating recent earthquake and tsunami won’t impact on forthcoming races in the MotoGP world championship. The magnitude 9.0 earthquake and subsequent deadly tsunami was one of the biggest natural disasters in Japan’s history and forced the immediate postponement of the Japanese Grand Prix at the Twin Ring Motegi, scheduled to take place on April 24.

a quote

I have a mate--hes called Gino Rea--you may have heard of him--not doing too bad in WSBK(WSS)--and this is waht he said about MCN

"Nice coverage on World Supersport and SSTK classes in MCN Magazine. NOT. Even WSB only few pages. There's more to racing than MotoGP!!"

Unless thats a sarcastic comment, your a dick, loads of people care about the wsb calender, its much better racing and theres more racing, moto gp is good, but its all a bit too much like F1 sometimes, but real race fans like watching racing, and wsb is great racing.

I hope

that the Japanese motorcycle industry press releases aren't written by the same people that write them for the Japanese nuclear energy industry. For over a month they've been massively understating the significance and impact of this problem on Japan and it's neighbouring countries while slowly and quietly ratcheting up the alert level to the max. The problem is, if they're being conservative with the facts they'll look like idiots when they have to come clean.

I was dealdy serious

According to Fomancu, MCN doesn't care either

Lets face it, all the racers aspire to be MotoGP

No one says "I dont wanna go to GP's, I wanna get to the pinnicale of Bike sport in WSB!!!!"


MotoGP is the pemiership and WSB is Division 1

As spectators of these World Championships we all have our favourite one for different reasons.
But as GuyGraham says all riders aspire to be in Moto GP and that includes Gino Rea.
Think Fomancu was dreaming!

It is good that Japan cope up with the parts needs of all the country that depend from their supply. I'm glad that this disaster will not affect all the major racing events as well as the ordinary people that need parts from the. I thought  I will have a hard time finding parts last week when I am searching for headlight covers for my car, but it turns out to be easy.
