Macau GP

Anyone know if this is "seeable" Broadcast? When or Where?

I just saw some chatter, said it was hairball like Isle of Man Hairball.

John McGuinnes is qualified #7 Other than That, I got nothin

Sounds like this weekend is Race Time though.

So we have our full WSBK spec Zed X's out there and we still can not beat BSB spec bikes, pathetic. 2nd and 3rd, I guess thats the best we could do.

Earlier this year PBM brought a couple of WSBK spec Zed X's to a BSB weekend with Brock Parkes and Sheridan Mories on them and they could not even win the BSB round. We got some serious work to do.

I can't agree with U.... If you are watching WSBK and BSB...then you have to know that BSB is veryyyy strong Championship !! i will dear to say one that is closest to WSBK..

Donigton 2008 ..Tom Sykes on Rizla Suzuki BSB spec bike finshed second ...behind Bayliss , race 2 Cal Crutclow finished second on BSB Bike.

One can say....ok it's on british track... but final race of season Portimao 08..
1.Troy Bayliss
2.Cal Crutchlow
3.Leon Haslam
4.Jonathan Rea

I think that after long long time Kawi is back on pace... ok this season they got a bad luck with injuries... but next year they will be in top 8 for sure..



At my signal, unleash hell....

The GO SHOW !

I hope your right tomsa, especially now considering that kawi has dumped almost everything to focus on SBk.

Good question, A brit that knows the history of the racers and race organizations would/should explain this.

I have a very strong suspicion, that some Brits develop on back roads and into Isle of Man, and Scottish 200, and Macau GP. And others start and develop on tracks.

As to your question, I'd also like to know. Is financial backing, lacking for a Brit rider, as compared to an Italian or Spanish rider?

i think your spot on the roads are tight and twisty in uk with some excellent back roads where the riders have developed there skills but i think its easier to ride fast on a track than the twisty back roads i ride for a bit of fun in uk, so you would think it would be easier for these guys who do the road races, because lets face it if they crash out they are in trouble unlike moto gp where most of the time its into grass or gravel, so you think you could push the bike a bit harder and faster.

Have you done anything special to your bike to work better on the backroads? And...What do you Ride? What tires do you favor?
