Rain disrupts Casey Stoner’s return to two wheels in Japan

Casey Stoner has returned to MotoGP action at the Twin Ring Motegi track in Japan today, the double world champion completing his first stint on a factory Honda since he retired from racing nine months ago. Stoner’s two-day appearance, which was exclusively revealed by MCN last month, is the first of four test sessions the Australian has planned in the coming...

Ghostrider?

"Every bike hes been on has gone backwards"

Yamaha won from 2008 to 2010... Honda won it 2011 (405 points) when Stoner started with them, again in 2012 (412 points), & they're winning this year...

Too right 666

He can't develop a bike, and I kicked his arse last year. HRC's just giving him this 'cause he's feeling a wittle unwoved right now.

Ghostrider...

So because a rider has an accident & has to sit out several races he's developing a bike backwards? So Rossi's 2010 explains Yamaha's predicament... he was obviously developing it backwards!


You really have no idea, have you?

ding ding!

 ..and it didnt take long for one ardent rambler to come out from under the rock. Hey ghostrider why not go back under your rock and stick to watching terrible movies such as the one in your avatar? 

 

Saturn, im sure Honda would have no problem in having any Honda rider win their home grand prix, on a track that is owned by them too

you were obviously ghostrider

a ghost watcher as well. When somebody else wins or even leads a race, let alone wins a championship, on a Ducati, against Honda and Yamaha who have won a mere 27 of the last 30 championships (soon to be 28 of 31) you can talk about developing Ducatis backwards.

Saturn...

I wouldn't expect him back next year hence me not mentioning 2014, there aren't any good rides going, but he could start talking to manufacturers early next year about a return to racing in 2015, and all the big guns are out of contract for 2015 at the moment so Stoner could potentially walk in to any team.

I wouldn't expect him back at Ducati either, that said it would be good to see him back on that bike just to get an accurate measure of it's outright performance for one lap.

I'm interested to know...

what part of the sport Stoner was becoming disillusioned with. If your a Stoner fan you would hope he left because there were only four bikes and three riders capable of winning, because then he might be enticed to come back now that MotoGP has 5 bikes and at least 5 riders capable of winning. However, if it was because of his family, then I doubt he's going to return to racing anytime soon.

Revilo...

My understanding was he didn't like the constant rule changing and dumbing down of the bike to CRT level, I am happy to be corrected though.
