Tech Blog: A question of weather

Warm –up today was wet, wet enough to mean that everyone got a handle on what would be needed set-up wise if the weather stayed miserable.  Bridgestone tyres seem to work better after they have been scrubbed in on the spare bike, so everyone gets a couple of laps in on one set on the spare bike then makes sure ...

British GP Tech Blog: Playing catch-up

After Friday’s rain-hit free practice, the MotoGP teams faced a race against time to fine the perfect set-up for Sunday’s race. There were two dry sessions on Saturday. Free practice in the morning it was back to basics, to get the initial setup guesses they had come to Donington with confirmed (or not) and then they set to work, where ...

British GP Blog: The British love of the Norton

Mike Nicks and I wandered over to the Loop to watch - and hear - the two Nortons in practice for Sunday’s GP1 15-lap sprint race, part of the Thundersport GB support programme at this year’s Donington British Grand Prix. That’s right. Nortons. At the GP. Fantastic. Mike is the Editorial Director at Bauer Media, the company that owns MCN, ...

British GP Tech Blog: The trauma of wet Friday practice

First practice is important. Mess up and it can mean playing catch-up all weekend, chasing a set-up for race day. A crew chief needs to get a quick idea whether the initial set-up ideas that he’s planned suit the circuit. Motorcycles all have specific characteristics and, by the third or fourth GP race of the season, the crew chief will ...

BSB Blog: Hey, give Tommy Hill a break

I’ve got to say I’m a bit surprised at the amount of negativity around the web forums towards Tommy Hill getting the Worx Suzuki for Mallory BSB this weekend.I don’t really understand it.   On one hand you get people complaining that the top rides should be given to the younger riders, then when a 24-year-old gets picked, it causes a ...

BSB blog: Not over ‘till it’s over

What’s that American cliché for not counting your chickens too quickly? It’s not over ‘till it’s over? Well it could be over a lot sooner than Leon Camier’s rivals think unless they come up with a new game plan to take the races to the Airwaves Yamaha star.  Neither Camier nor the Airwaves Yamaha team are the sort of people ...

Marc Potter blog: The Ducati Desmosedici day was amazing!

Rode a Ducati Desmosedici RR for the first time at Donington Park yesterday, and it was more like riding in a one-make championship. As (mostly) rich blokes prepared to ride their £42k motorbikes around Donington Park, I sneaked a ride on one owned by Ducati Wolverhampton. I’ve ridden more powerful road bikes, but none with the chassis, feel and agility ...

Rutter TT Blog: "I must be one of the few glad to see the rain"

We’ve not had so much luck coming our way in the back end of this week but we certainly struck lucky with the rain today, causing the Superbike race to be postponed until Monday. If it had gone ahead as planned today I wouldn’t have been on the grid. After the engine popped a head gasket on Thursday we ordered ...
