my girlfriend is chasing me with a knife, see you all tomorrow
meh...late lunch just means they think you're still working
To me CDP seems to be a guy who likes to be left alone when trying to get things done, so probably wise to keep distance and not ask for autographs.
That sounds tough. I hope he can make it through tomorrow and get the new engine put together. Manuel has a way of persevering...
The standard engine cases will be marked at scrutineering. All lose of markings will result in penalties up to Disqualification.
The preparation of the engine is free, with the exception of the main engine cases which must be strictly standard.
Repairs to the engines top-end are free during the event. All interventions to the bottom-end (inside the main engine cases) will be considered as a change of engine.
Once removed and replaced by engine B, the refitting of engine A into the machine will be considered as a change of engine, in the same way as replacement by engine C.
The first change of engine will incur a 15 penalty, the second a penalty of 45, and all following changes a 2 hour penalty for each change.
just put the super top end on go!!
Good inside info Neil !
No one beats TEAM F5!!!!
We're slowly coming up on tonights first broadcast on Eurosport #1 scheduled to begin 15 minutes past the hour. But there's this *thudThudThud* game going on now and I have no idea how long that's gonna take... Will tell y'all when they're done.
Might be trying to fix it before doing a swap, or at least checking out whats wrong.
Did someone say they could swap top ends with out penalty? I imagine CD has a few "Mods" in his that aren't in the other. So he'll ride on and swap tops tomorrow?
Look at that, he's got nothing between his legs!!!
Edit: And look at the condition of the two rear tires in the pic.....
Alright, next theory, fellow conspiracy enthusiasts:
Dabrowski is shown having penalties accounting to +40min 46sec.
Is Dabrowski on his first engine did he already do a swap?
Is Cyril getting a rather fresh engine here?
Can you imagine the poor bastards if we actually had a pack of people there.
Nice pic Doyle...pity we cant see the number of the bike next to it. And what kind of truck that is in the background
There is no tarp so I have to belive it is a pilot job.
Both my guys had not been aproached to donate their engines, so perhaps Dabrowski really did volunteer his engine. I doubt he did an engine change already though.
I feel like I cursed CDP after my morning comments. I thought he would distance himself today. So many variables....
Enjoyed reading all the speculation about today's stage. I could not imagine being asked to give up my motor, talk about taking one for the team.
I would definitely give him plenty of space tonight.
Dabrowski is polish and in that case his license registration plate ought to match up with the polish system for license plates, how ever I can't make it work really using this information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle_registration_plates_of_Poland. The main problem is that I can't find a region abbreviated with "BR".
The tail end looks pretty similar to Dabrowski's...
Please note the number plate on Dabrowski's KTM: BR-5LVL
"BR" is for Braunau, the Mattighofen district, this bike was registered by KTM corporate. That's probably a proper factory RR.
Well that then explains my problems to get it to match with a polish license plate. While it also opens up the possibility that we're looking at someone else's bike.
Christ, I betcha with another hour we could trace down the VIN's of both machines.
