Casey Stoner doubts 1000cc bikes will increase overtaking

MotoGP world championship leader Casey Stoner fears the switch to a 1000cc format for 2012 will not increase overtaking and make racing a much more exciting spectacle than the current 800cc bikes. With more horsepower and more torque available with the new generation 1000cc machines, fans are hoping more overtaking opportunities will arise. But Repsol Honda rider Stoner, who heads into this...

Interesting isn't it

That Stoner is viewed so differently in other news sources outside of the UK .


That the UK fans have not picked up on Stoners comments re: Anglo riders getting a rough deal with Dorna et el.

That MCN hasn't got a campaign going to get more Brit riders into the main game by getting more bikes on the grid for Brit riders ( the Spanish have got that one well sorted).

That there is a large group of fans here who would rather be dismissive of a successful rider than put there efforts into getting more Brit riders onto the grid.

@kqb333: no, not a Brit phenomenon.... here in America we also think Stoner is a jumped-up wanker who doesn't know what he's talking about. I think we are equal opportunity critics and have carefully thought about it and, yes, he's a dick head.

when you say 'we', i assume your talking about yourself and a few mates who only care about what happens off the track.. or do you know everyone in America ?

It's a shame Casey is beating your home crowd hey ?

I just cant understand, what are we all watching Motogp for ? the press conferences ? interviews ? no, i personally watch it for the racing, unlike some.

@Yamaha3358: yes, of course I'm speaking for all Americans...and Canadians and quite a lot of Mexicans too. What? Do you think we would rush to judgement on the "Casey as bollocky, would probably shit himslf on a CR500,  numpty" rashly? We don't just invade anybody you know.

and he's not beating the "home crowd" that wd be difficult as most of the crowd is stationery. He is however beating the home "team" (Sp/Edw/Hay)...that's prob what you meant.

What is A Merry Can??? Oh yeah those 80's has beens who quit racing GP's when they turned into girlie 4 strokes. Well mainly because none of them could beat Matt Mlah-done until Spies came along. Thank god.... that was getting embarrassing! Litre bikes will suck and normal service will be resumed next year, just more back markers if the teams can find organisations silly enough to sponsor them!
