Seems Dorna have gone for a very cheap logistics company! When they seem hell bent on reducing costs and fuel in the bikes.......but are happy sending jets over the planet right between 2 european races to a test. Couldn't it have taken place between laguna and indy?

I agree racingfan

Why subject the riders to unreasonable hours of travel, jet lag and high travel costs between European rounds?  Still a long way from Laguna in flight time but not compared to coming from the Netherlands.

 

There really isn't anything about cutting costs in Dorns'a plans.  Never has been since the 800s were introduced.  Costs have skyrocketed since then and the only thing that came from that added expense is bikes that are nowhere as advanced as they could be because the rules don't allow it.

If they do invade....

you ever seen a Vulcan bomber take off? One of the most impressive site's you'll ever witness. Then there's the GR5. Ever seen one use its VTOL? Incredible (pedants will argue VSTOL). I don't think the Argies did either. It wasn't hovering dropping paveways. Incidentally, it was a war we should never have entered. And lucky for our leader at the time it delayed her pending departure. What a complete and utter waste of human life. The True enemy of war is war itself. Are Repsol even allowed into Argentia? Didn't that capitalist sucking company tell its employees not to go near South America for fear of reprise? What happened in the last few months. Did someone wave some dollars... at someone?

Politics & Sport

Seems that Repsol Honda, LCR Honda and the Yamaha factory team will not be allowed to take part in this test because they tested at Austin, and only Pramac, Gresini and Tech3 are likely to attend (paid for by Dorna). The Repsol thing still rumbles on unresolved in the background.

Pope to test for Ducati on lab bike?

Is the Pope going to test the Ducati to see if his boss can get it to work? No handed knee down but still blessing the front of the bike.
