:ymapplause:
I havn't got a clue what's being said, but don't really need to, you can just tell from the crowds reaction the jist of it :D :))


Racing? don't be daft :p =)) =))


Actually I have great respect for anyone who rides a motorbike let alone races one, looks bloody terrifying to me :-SS

I love the onboard cameras, seeing how they position them selves to take the corners is just awesome :ymapplause: :-o

Wonder ow much tickets are for the British GP :))

Too much :-o

I was going on the Saturday to watch Qualifying but £30 :-o Race Day is £55 :-o :-o :-o ~x( Silverstone is a naff circuit for spectating too, the action is too far away from any viewpoints. Donnington was cheaper and far better for spectating.

Here ya go H, here's that picture I was telling you about, the one about all the important physics stuff about motorbike racing...

Awwwww bless him :D :))
I dunno, every time I see/hear an interview with him (or pictures of him frolicking with a topless beauty on a yacht =)) ) he always seems like such a happy little chap :))


Ahhh well, there goes that idea :))
It was a daft one as it was :))

Still, it's cheaper than the F1 GP.

I nearly fainted when I saw how much that was :-o :-o

Its actually GSS, a Ducati riders gonad support system, one needs it after 20 odd laps head-butting the tank with your tackle when braking from about 300 KPH. Standard equipment to those who dare ride the wonderous red beauties. :D :D

You a big fan of riding at 300 kph then? ;) Closed circuit of course =))

Was also nice to see appreciation of Vale from the Ducati following at Mugello as well. Won't quite be the same without him there for the next 'few' races.

As for ticket prices at Silverstone, they actuallly seem OK for a full day of racing. I remember working there back in 1996, and even then, the F1GP admission was £65, basic admission too. I'm chuffed that we have managed to get some tickets for the World Series by Renault for free - woohoo. Now just gotta convince KiddieCoaster to wear his ear defenders on the day.

I thought there was a thread on this, but can't find it, so appologies :D


I dunno if anyone else has been watching today's (Brno) qualifying, but how odd was it.

Hayden fell, the Lorenzo and the Rossi, those two went with in 30 seconds of each other, strange lol.
Good on Ben Spies though on P2.


I don't normally watch MotoGP, but just recently I've got nore interested in it.

Thannks for merging the threads, I knew I wasn't dreaming :))


Rather damp track, but the 125s and the moto2 lot should help dry it out :D


I still have to watch through my fingers though lol, they're all mad as far as I'm concernd =))
Bradley Smith is on Poll, it would be good to see a brit win hopefully :D

Looks like I jinxed the poor lad, sorry Bradly lol :(( :))

There's some MotoGP on this weekend apparently, but I'll be damned if I can find it =))

Still can't find Qualifying, but the race is BBC THREE 19:45.
