    What the resurfacing has done, is effectively create a new track. All of the 'rough' bits are now very smooth, but there are new sections that have totally different characteristics. Like a small whoop going up Lukey Heights, (T9), for example, that have given me, and others, a big surprise.....:huh
    Having said that, turns 1,4 and 12, and the entry to 10, are just soooo much betterer...I'll be interested to hear what they have to say.

    A couple of months ago it was still fairly abrasive as well.

    "Shit ton" is the recognized unit of measure in these situations.

    Any news on Bradl?:ear

    EDIT: Yes, there are. Last sentence from Mick Doohan's article on Philip Island linked at the beginning of this thread:
    "...Bradl is heading to the island and will seek a medical clearance on Friday following surgery to insert a screw in his fractured ankle.":clap

    Motomatters comes through again......


    Bradl will be at P.I. and be evaluated for fitness to possibly ride?

    But he plans on being in Japan and racing.
