BSB Blog: The silly season starts here

Gary Pinchin, 02 September 2009 16:56

Naturally the chat in the cramped Cadwell pit lane during the Bank Holiday MCE British Superbike championship round was all about GSE Racing and last week’s announcement that Airwaves would not be backing them in 2010. There wasn’t a lot of substance but plenty of supposition, the biggest one being, ‘what if GSE don’t find a backer to replace Airwaves?’ ...

British GP Blog: The British love of the Norton

Gary Pinchin, 24 July 2009 20:43

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, ...

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

Michael Rutter, 06 June 2009 13:37

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 ...

Michael Rutter blog: “I was looking forward to a good lap”

Michael Rutter, 05 June 2009 11:38

Everything was going fine last night. I’d done a 125.5mph lap and was looking forward to a really good lap but we hit a few problems – as you can and often do at the TT. We were down on speed early in the week so Dave Hagen re-mapped the engine management system for us. Wednesday night it was better ...

Rutter's Blog: "All the effort's been worthwhile just to ride down Bray Hill!"

Gary Pinchin, 03 June 2009 14:35

I can’t deny it. The first time I rode down Bray Hill on Monday night I had a real tingle down my neck with excitement.  It felt so good to be back at the TT, especially to be on a bike that wasn’t even built a week earlier. I found myself grinning for ear to ear as I was riding ...

Michael Rutter Blog: “Front row is just brilliant”

Michael Rutter, 31 May 2009 10:00

It’s been another amazing day. From the start of the meeting here at Thruxton I was running the settings that the team and Guintoli had been using and the bike has been bloody good. All I’ve done different is to put some weight on the back and the only other thing has been giving it a few clicks on the ...

Micahel Rutter blog: “The Worx Suzuki can be front row. But can I?”

Michael Rutter, 29 May 2009 18:00

I’m having a great time at Thruxton on the Wrox Suzuki. It’s different to what I’ve been used to riding but we were sixth in the first session and eight in the second and I’m confident there’s much more to come. We ran fourth for ages but stuck to the same hard-compound tyre so we could try lots of different ...

World Superbikes Blog: Two Qualifiers into Three Superpoles Doesn’t Work

Michael Guy, 06 April 2009 08:24

It’s amazing how often humans decide not to do the obvious thing. Like choosing to have three segments for Superpole qualifying in the World Superbike championship, but allowing teams to have only two rear qualifying tyres. The numbers don’t match up – but that’s deliberate on the part of the organisers, Infront Motor Sports. The fastest 20 riders in qualifying ...

BSB blog:The battle of the BSB Yamahas

Gary Pinchin, 23 March 2009 15:58

I’m not surprised that GSE racing issued a press statement, saying they’ve ‘postponed’ their planned testing schedule in Europe. Things have been very quiet on the Airwaves Yamaha front this winter but, from what I heard last week, their GSE Racing technicians were finally in Italy, building bikes. Get all the latest BSB news I’d heard there had been delays ...

Dakar Day 12 – Simon Pavey Blog

Michael Guy, 16 January 2009 11:39

Simon Pavey has reached the finish of the toughest day of the 2009 Argentina – Chile Dakar Rally. The BMW rider finished an impressive 45th in the extreme Stage 12 200km Special Timed Stage and now holds 73rd overall. Writing for MCN, Pavey said: “What a stage! The sand was so soft, that it seemed untrue. I started absolutely dead ...
