  2. Tells it like it is, that bloke.
  3. They say a pessimist is only an optimist with experience.
  4. that's funny! I'm going to use it.

    Anyone into the red bull rookies cup. These kids are awesome! At Indy the Euro kids are pitted against the US kids, sounds like a reason to fight to me :wink:

  7. Westy fastest after day 1 :grin: :grin:

    Really wet...........
  8. Yep, sure am, How is Dylan Mavin going?
  9. He is copping rain on top of rain.
  10. Ha, our juniors ride really really well in the wet...... Go Dylan.
  11. In pole position in the MotoGP class, Valentino Rossi. Of course, Valentino is leading the World Championship, only second pole position of the season riding the Fiat Yamaha. Alongside him on the front row of the grid, Casey Stoner. Casey has been in pole position for the last seven Grand Prixs, but I suspect you’re happy to be on that front row. Completing the front row is Jorge Lorenzo. You finished second at Misano just a couple weeks ago. In the 250 cc class, Marco Simoncelli in pole position. Marco’s fourth pole of the season. Marco leads the World Championship by 26 points with five rounds remaining in the 250 cc class. And in the 125 cc, Pol Espargaro, 17 years old now. We remember when he was 15 years old, don’t we, riding in Grand Prixs on pole. It’s his second pole position of the season.

    The BMW Award, of course, awarded at the end of the season after qualifying, Casey Stoner still leads the way on 269. In second place, Valentino Rossi on 231. There will be what, four remaining won’t there, because there will just be four qualifying sessions left.

  12. Can you give us any clues, as to how the "Red Bull Juniors" are going?
  13. There's quite a lot of truth in that article, sadly.

    This years MotoGP class has seen a lot of boring races with runaway leaders, only 2 real contenders and very few memorable moments that come to mind..... Rossi's Laguna pass was one of them.

    Luckily for us racing fans we have 125s, 250s and World Superbikes to watch :)
  14. They're talking about possibly cancelling the Indy GP race - it looks set to absolutely bucket down, and the new sections of the track don't drain properly.
  15. If that happens, VR would need a catastrophe to lose the title.
  16. The other option was to run the race at any time they look like there is a dry window available. No word on that for sure yet.
  17. Where can i get an update?
  18. Doesn't look so bad Joel - it's all blue, not yellow or red, around Indianapolis.
  19. yeah, but even the light stuff on the radar is heavy IRL. navigating around the radars, it is like a blanket of constant rain.
