  1. Moto GP Silverstone *Spoilers*



    OneHD 9.30. Just popped over to the motogp site and looked at the qualifying times. Stoner Sic Lorenzo on the front line and Rossi all the way down at 15? what?

    No idea what Rossi was doing in qualifying, spent most of the time in and out of the pits.

    Sad day for Crutchlow missing his home GP.

    He will. After he turns that piece of shit Ducati into something proper and wins another championship. That will be on the 1000.

    Maybe. Everybody seems to be looking forward to getting back onto the thousands. Stoner seems to be rubbing his hands together in fact. I was a Rossi fan before I was a Stoner fan, so I kinda hope they get something together that allows him to finish his career with some dignity.

    What it really does show, is just how good Casey is. He was winning on that bike, when he wasn't falling off it, all the way to the end of last year. Now the Greatest Of All Time can't get the thing higher than 13th / 15. Last Ducati on the grid.

    [edit] Looks like he's binned it in the warmup as well.

    Casey fell off it loads and that cost him any chance of another world title on it after the rocket ship he had in '07. It is not the same bike as last year either, even just the new engine rules are enough to guarantee that.

    this will be an interesting Race. The rain is great. Kills the power advantage and accentuates skill and talent. Not long to wait now, Chaps and Chapettes.

    @Bazza - Ok, it's not the same bike, but it's very similar. They're all very similar.

    ... Sounds like it's started. I'm going to watch.
