Tech Blog: A question of weather

Gary pinchin, 26 July 2009 21:25

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 ...

There is an argument that exposing children to sport too early in their lives converts them into robotic racing clones, with brittle-thin personalities and narrow interests. But you only had to see Bradley Smith’s comportment on the podium at Jerez and in the press conference after his first-ever 125cc victory to appreciate that he’s articulate, courteous and cultivated.

MotoGP blog: MotoGP in crisis

Matthew Birt, 07 January 2009 16:01

Kawasaki’s bombshell decision to quit MotoGP was a wake up call of Big Ben proportions for the racing world. Well for MotoGP at least, which had previously seemed impregnable to the global economic crisis that has seen Kawasaki join the likes of Honda’s F1 team, Subaru’s World Rally squad and Woolworths!
