It looks like it will be a wet race...might play into Ducati's favor!  I hope Stoner has a good farewell race.  DVR is set.

Vicious high side in the main race.

No modification goes unpunished. Memento mori.  Good people drink good beer.  Things happen pretty fast at high speeds.

It's all up to your will level, your thrill level and your skill level.  Everything else is just fluff.

I thought I read, from last to first. How do you do that with spec motors?

With a whole lot of talent, skill, guts & determination.  He practically went through half the field on the first lap. Per qualifying times he was five seconds a lap faster than the 32nd guy ahead of him at the start. Then he just rode the wheels off that bike. Excellent racing.

Sport Rider magazine ran these two articles I thought you'd enjoy.  The first is an interview with HRC's VP and his views of the GP and frank thoughts of Honda riders.  The second article discusses a new penalty point system being implemented by Dorna for endangering other riders.

Just reading over in Racing & Trackdays that Speed isn't planning on showing WSBK or MotoGP.

Damn!      Angry

Being faster than you thought possible…it feels good. No, screw that—it feels like shotgunning a gallon of adrenaline and chasing it with an all-night orgy aboard a burning Viking boat.

I typically download torrents (P2P) of Eurosport's WSBK coverage (MotoGP & F1 also available), which includes pre/post race coverage.  I also buy a motogp video ticket, which I've offered my password to the Sunday JJ crew :-)...by the way, I miss you guys.

I never really enjoyed Speeds 1hr coverage with continuous commercial interruptions.  Meanwhile NASCAR gets a multi-hour block...understandably it rakes in more viewers & revenue, but it doesn't mean I have to like it.  

On a different note, NBC supposedly outbid fox/speed for F1 coverage of the 2013 season.

Below article was posted a few months ago when the rumors started buzzing.

BEIN network is broadcasting WSBK from 3:00-7:30pm on Sat, which you can catch on Oceanic ch 1229 (229) if you have the SportsPack...if you don't have the SportsPack it'll cost you an additional $9/mo.

According to Road Racing World Magazine, MotoGP will be on SPEED TV...
