Moto GP 2014
Have you read the last couple of MCN’s?
All very strange.
Ducati go open class but take their software and donate it to the other open class teams, even though many of them don’t have the resources to use it.
Dorna are happy until, guess what? Honda complain, because the rules no longer favour them.
Then Ducati are told they will have to compete in a class of their own if they win a race, get 2 second places or 3 thirds. 😐
There’s a lot more too it than that, but you get the drift.Posted 3 years ago
And I’m sure Ducati have been sandbagging in the last few tests. Clever old Ducati. 🙂PeterPoddyMember
Rusty, yeah, agreed. They must be a bit scared I reckon. Honda got scared of Ducati after they got regularly whipped in WSB some years back. They don’t like having a bunch of spaghetti eating chancers giving them a good thrashing!
(PS, I have no quibbles about either factory and we have a Duke and a Honda in the garage!)Posted 3 years agotomasoSubscriber
And then he got back on and went faster!
The “open” Forward Yamaha is essentially a 2012 chassis with a satelitte 2013 engine without the fancy gearbox. However, it isn’t hampered by running with less fuel and come race day that is going to make a big difference. Lorenzo and Rossi both noticed that the leaner running Yamaha was worse to ride with 20 litres of fuel, so the 24L Espargaro has must make for a more manageable bike.
Although Livio Suppo complained that the difference between the open Honda’s performance and the Forward Yamaha was for a reason and it had first and second name – Aleix Espargaro. The lad has been making less competitive motorcycles do things they shouldn’t for some years. I can’t ever remember him being slow!Posted 3 years ago
I never really watch sport so I didn’t really care that BT had given us free BT Sport via our Sky box but I thought I’d check it out today and I’m so glad I did. The race was excellent, with some really close overtaking maneuvers. Good to see Rossi back to form too.
I did make the mistake of tuning in at 15:00 when the “coverage” started, only to find that the Moto GP race didn’t actually start until 19:00. Needless to say I switched off and found something more interesting to do. Do some folk really sit down and watch that stuff for 5 hours on a Sunday afternoon?Posted 3 years ago

I’m usually looking forward to the racing in the lower classes more than GP, though today’s big race was excellent.
The new presenting team are a bit wooden with the exception of Emmett but I’m sure they’ll improve. JT was like a rabbit in the headlights. Not a fan of Keith Heuwen either but at least it’s not Parrish or (God forbid) Charlie Cox. The pitlane interviews were a big improvement (much better than when Mamola did them years ago on Eurosport) and I thought made for a fairly good show.
If you’re a Plusnet customer you can get BT sport half price.
Did anyone else think Cal was going to punch Hodgson when he chased him in the pitlane after the race? 😆Posted 3 years agoLoCoMember
Got to lap 7 before had to bath and put the children to bed, have BT sport but only on the computer as Infinity broadband hasn’t got to us, functionality of the BT sport on the computer is crap compared to the other channels we do get via the bt vision box, with no pause, record or any of the other functions 👿Posted 3 years ago
Going to have to try and catch the rest of the race as and when bit rubbish and we don’t get itv4 via the telly box
