Bummer, it's looking like injuries might end Jlo's career sooner than later

Was looking forward to some intra-team competition to see if someone could challenge Marquez on the same bike. Lorenzo lost so much testing time this spring because of his MX accident.

Lets see if Dovi can get some consistency this year. Want to see a close battle for the championship right to the end of the season like we had a couple of years ago. The Suzuki's look like a great handling bike, now if they can put a few more ponies to the ground...

Marquez...just damn! Rossi, yeah, still got it. Felt bad for the two-fer crash near the end, but that's racing folks. I replayed the start many times and still couldn't judge whether Crutchlow jumped. They must have some nifty gear tracking that stuff. Good racing all around down south.

Moto GP was a bit ho hum, Moto 3 was a great race and Moto 2 - what a cracker of a race! Lots of paint and rubber swapping in that race. Best of the 3 to watch in my opinion!

Good to see the Aussies getting up the pointy end with Jack having his seat stay together and Remy fighting hard for a well deserved podium. Here's hoping he's less of a d!ck than his old man.

This will probably be the first year I won't make it to COTA.
Saving the coin for next weeks' trip to see our daughter in Prague.

You gonna go for all three days? Looks like weather will be good. Enjoy!

Sorry to hear that. I am only planning to go on race day. I have a number of people from work that will be there as well. It is just too easy when the MotoGP is in the town I live in.

Yes, they do. Just a tiny bit of creep, but no movement however slight is allowed when the lights are on.

Thaaat was fun. Thank COTA for sanding down some berms, the racing was better for it. Jorge, where are you ? KTM was up there and I expected more from the Apes. Suzuki has made huge leaps with speed and chassis, Alex Rins should be feared.
On a different track, most of them, Yamaha needs more umphh out of corners and less wheel spin at speed. I blame wings and the drag at 240.

Nice day to take in a race John !

Looks like Channing Tatum was rubbing himself on half the field all weekend.

Yeah, it was a great race. Much better than last year. The Tito's vodka tent certainly helps as well.

A tighter championship, sure. But it would have been much more exciting to see a 3 way battle up front, than have Marquez crash himself out. I was saying at the start of this race, it's the only way he's getting stopped. Bummer is, he even kept the clutch in, just fell over picking that bike up again. It would have been awesome if he could have gotten back out there in 6th or so, to battle back up.


Yup, Channing Tatum is a huge Josh Herrin fan, so I suspect he was in great spirits at the end.

Mugello race was epic! Petrucci really coming into his own, another one of these and his contract renewal should be in the bag.

Time to give Lorenzo the boot. LCR Honda's Nakagami was very impressive considering he's on last years Honda. Either he or Crutchlow need to move into Repsol's garage.

Yamaha's screw ups with free practice and qualifying timing continue. Would like to see Rossi get at least 1 win this year, but with qualifying performance like this...

MotoGP looked like a Moto3 with all the lead changes. Fantastic race and Congrats to Petrucci.
