Casey Stoner memories: Colin Edwards

In the final part of MCN’s exclusive series of Stoner memories Colin Edwards recalls a side to the Aussie few seldom see in the immediate aftermath of the tragic accident in Sepang last year that claimed the life of rising Italian star Marco Simoncelli. “Casey came to the medical centre to see how I was and that meant a lot.

I remember being at Donnington Gp during qualifying(it was pissing down)..and being absolutely blown away by Stoners fearless speed and ability down the craner curves,in 35 years of watching bike racing I`d never seen any thing like it...what sickened me to the core was the thousands of British meatheads booing the guy, the saddest and most pathetic thing I`ve ever witnessed at a race meeting..Good luck with what ever you do Mr Stoner,we'll miss ya!!!PS,eddy998 ,maybe if Edwards calls it a day you could put yourself in the frame for a top ride..seeing as you like getting dressed up as a cupcake....

Bigger jerks than the Spanish?..........being surrounded by a load of 'Milkybars' type characters, shouting their jibberish at each other.....throwing bloody sunflower husks everywhere.......unable to queue for anything, believing that he who shouts loudest gets served first......Hmmmmm, a tricky one.

Passion,mexican waves,fireworks,chaos,mayhem...thats what I want when I go to a GP...I suppose you miss the glory days of Donnington when they could barely pull in 25 000 and the place barely had the atmosphere of a club race(you could hear a pin drop most of the time)..don`t start me off about Silverstone,that is one place I'll never visit again,still no queues though.......

in that case Silverstone is perfect for you ,you won`t have to queue anywhere...I wonder why..?  me? I'm off to Mugello next year to rub shoulders with 100.000 mad partisan Italian fans,and if there`s a little queue when I leave fuck it...who gives shit...finally if you`ve ever been to Catalunya or Jerez,the only mexican waves are part of the build up to the race...couldn't do it at Donnington as they used to give us a pile of mud to sit on, can`t do it at Silverstone as the stands are empty...

well said parkway

:ph43r: Silverstone is a rip off, charging top money for poor facilities and preying on the naive British bikers that know no better. Compared to Monza the place is a dump, which is reflected in the spectator levels.

Moaner has gone to the great nappy changing place in Aus, can we please just get over him for the love of all that is holy!!!

As for Silverstone or any other track, I'll sit here watching it on the box, I've more than had enough of standing next to smelly bikers, eating over priced stale, awful food waiting for over a minute for the racers to come past again!!

Entertainment.

I always like to see a bike coming out of the corner with the rear wheel sliding around and the front wheel just about to start pawing at the air on the exit , My memories of stoner on the duke .
