Casey Stoner to remain in HRC testing role

Honda will continue to call on the blistering speed and technical feedback of double MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner for development of its factory RC213V in 2014. The Australian retired at the end of 2012 but he made numerous testing appearances in the latter stages of this year’s campaign at the Twin Ring Motegi track in Japan. Stoner, who won titles for...

So

HRC thought Pedrosa was better than Dovi as well as preferring Stoner to him.

I am descended from real Celts of the Irish and Scottish variety btw. I believe the Irish even have their own independent Celtic nation.

The guitar's made out of two old hub-caps and the handle off a garden hoe.  Now that's what I call improvisation.

none of my ancestors were convicts saturn

as it happens, they came rather later (most of them because the English were inclined to leave them to starve during the potato famine), although it is somewhat a point of pride for those who had such ancestors.

Btw Benny, whatever the shortcomings of Australian breeding, it does seem to result in Rugby teams which are good at beating the Welsh, with the recent win making it 9 of the last 10.

To be fair..

I don't think there is a 'real' bike race fan alive, who would NOT like to see Stoner back on a bike.

Having stated he wants to have a proper year off, without competing at all, this allows Casey and Honda to keep their options open in what could be a particularly interesting round of musical chairs for 2015.

It strikes me though, that given the Australian's form at his home circuit and Nakamoto's claim he lapped just 0.3s slower than the full blown RCV on the production RCVR - even closer with soft tyres - that the Bridgestone test is the perfect place to underline the bikes potential.

There again, after being the best part of 2 seconds away at Valencia with the fibs and sales talk having already suckered teams into dropping Aprilia..maybe the reality is there is nothing to be gained and Casey isn't as dumb as most of his soppy fans look.

SAME SAME ...

Some things never, ever change: MCN mentions Casey Stoner and all the self-styled  "expert armchair naysayers" fall out of the woodwork. I see we have Dovi to thank for Stoner's 2011 & 2nd Moto GP World Title now - and with Stoner riding on a different marque to the first one. Who can we all thank over there @ Bologna, we wonder? Paul Smart or Mike The Bike? This multi-make thing is a very rare (almost unique) achievement - but the usual mob of reality-deniers, deep-thinkers & cabbage-heads simply come out with more outrageous nonsense. Sad as ...

Want to know WHY Stoner isn't or won't be travelling to Japan for more HRC testing for at least a few more months? Here's your answer:

Can I reiterate (again) for the dumb-arses & jingoists & onanists - never met the guy, I am not an Australian (obvious from my avatar - any rational & passingly intelligent person would have thought) and only post on rare occasions to correct sheer wankery & moronism.

Cheers

it depends

whether he wants to do it all again Wosi. I am sure he is smart enough not to do it without full commitment, there is no beating either MM or Jorge with less than that, and maybe even with it. I am also fairly sure Mr Nakamoto still loves him madly though.
