For those that watch it

The last few races have proven beyond all doubt that the 800cc rule is ghey and by ghey....I mean takes it in reverse.

Stoners starting to hack me right off as well.

Bring back the 990s, or badass 2 stokes.

I don't watch it Aimail, but it sounds like MotoGP fans are being 'treated' to the same nonsense as F1 fans are.

In the past two years F1 lumps have gone from 3.0 liter V10s to 2.4 liter V8s, and now, if the chairman of FIA is to be believed, the goal is to have them running four-cylinder engines by 2009 or 2010.

F1 are too fast for the tracks - the premium class isnt about max Hp or capacity . its about the highest tech

the F1 have to be slowed in one way while forcing them to push the current tech in an auto applicable way

in MotoGP , the switch to 800's has made for closer races , with more dicing the whole race duration cos 800 type power allows the tyre to last longer

The moto gp races this year are some of the best racing available to watch.

Not sure what championship you are watching but if you are comparing this series with F1, I would like to know what's in the water you are drinking.

What's wrong with the boy Stoner? He does a good race, and what's more he's shown a phenomenal improvement in his ability to actually stay on a bike and finish a race, unlike last year. The Ducatti seems to suit him, its a good combi, so what? Its up to the others to get their bikes and tyres right to suit their riders, like shame on Repsol Honda the way they've treated Hayden and Pedrosa. Its a great event and doing fine. Only thing wrong with it is that there's no more till 19th Aug.

I disagree, the switch has made to let Pedrosa to win.

Small engine = small chassis = lesser weight = less horses

So

Greater T/W for Pedrosa, worst for big guys like Rossi.


Laguna Seca is a small circuit (the same for the Germany's one) and it's difficult to pass. But the last fight between Vale and Casey (3 races ago) it's been wonderful.

Sure the real problem of this year is the difference between tires.

This year its harder to make uber overtakes, as theres less power. This is from rossis mouth. The racing ends up being precessional.

The bikes handle more easily. The small teams were hit hard, some had to quit. Theyve stuffed more electonics in them to keep the higher revs under control.

800s just blow, there was no point in going over to them. Corner speeds are now actually higher with them.

And Baldie STFU

MotoGP in the motorbike world has always been considered the fastest and most powerful series...not the highest tech. Now SBK is going faster. And dude they altered the tyre regulations so they slowed down and made them last longer, it doesnt make for good racing. It makes for races which are spread out and limits the amount of fighting for places. Then theres the fuel limit which has meant that riders are more unwilling to thrash it. On top of that the bikes are less reliable. The qualifyings are closer but I cannot see how you can say this years racing has been closer than the last few seasons.

MotoGP is not and should never be F1, they should try and keep the regulations to a minimum.

You are right about the F1 speeds. They have to slow the cars down somehow for safety reasons. What I don't like is this idea that the tech in F1 has to be something that is applicable to road cars. Why should the pinnacle of motor racing use technology that I can have in my road car?

It has to do also with their cost-savings initiatives, which is absolutely ridiculous considering the switch from v10 down to v8 was supposed to be a cost-saving measure, and teams spent hundreds of millions of dollars on it when if the goal was simply to reduce power output for safety reasons, a "restrictor" plate like they use in NASCAR would have done the same thing for about fifteen US dollars.

Now they want to go to four-cylinder engines. To me, it is obscene and completely goes against everything F1 has been for the last fifty years.

Sorry for the hijack, Aimail. I'll shut up now.

so the MotoGP class running smaller , lower weight 500's was even more stupid ?

the SBK may be posting higher top speeds , so what ?

seriously , so what ?

no SBK bike this year is ever going to lap as fast as this years front running 800's , i.e. they are _slower_

SBK is road bikes

MotoGP is factory prototypes - & they neither need to be the most powerfull , nor the largest capacity . that class is about the highest technology regulations

Manu-6S - the class weight hasnt changed from last years 990's . they would hardly change rules to suit one person . being heavier allows you to dominate the bike eaiser
