Yamaha until he went off on his own as a team owner.
Roberts JR won for Suzuki in 2000.

Just saw an old pic on Soup recently that called young Kenny...

"A very young KRJR learning the ropes in Europe. He would later become the biggest GP racing enigma since Freddie Spencer."

i think the suzukis will slip in at the bottom of the factory bikes and be running the same pace as the sattelite bikes, they will be better than the ducs, they wont be brilliant,but they wont be flawed

Won't they be using spec ECU's then? That might level the field a bit.

There is a video of an interview Mr. Abrams on motogp.com for those with subscriptions. I hadn't seen it before.

According to what I've read Suzuki will be running under the same rules as the other prototype teams.

I was reading something completely non-racing related last night and saw his name under the AP photo (he worked for the AP in NYC).

Although I met him and spent plenty of time with him in media centers I can't claim to have known him. Still, he was a paddock fixture and his contributions will be missed. RIP, Henny.

what is the deal with MotoGP and live coverage. Does Speed carry any of the races live or otherwise? I'd kind of like to see some of these..

Last year most of the European rounds were on about an hour delay. Usually aired at 8 a.m I believe. They'll be covering GP this season so I imagine it'll be the same.

Actually, the races on speed were more like 10-15 minutes behind live.
