Ducati needs to be allowed 1200cc. It's only fair.
Actually I was reminded of Indy last year when he burned the tires off kicking major ass at the beginning. It was pure awesome.
Tires didn't make it unfortunately and I think he bailed if my caffeine is working properly today.
4 camshafts and some programming time. How hard could it be? A bunch of people on this site with 1/100000 of Ducati's budget make changes like that all the time. You just have to want to.
Or maybe the problem is that Ducati sourced their dyno from the same company as Ferrari sourced their windtunnel from?
Sounds like an argument made by harley race fans....
seems like there heading for WSBK rules anyway,as long as they run a twin,i dont think the other teams would complain
but a 1200cc twin with the mandated 81mm bore wouldnt rev too well
i flew to another country to see one
Sok. I'll be hopefully flying to another country next year for a classic meet. Place called PUKEKOHE! Can hardly wait...
Ya being a bit harsh mate. I'm sure they're trying. I'm not a 'fan' of anyone,or any brand in particular.What I do know is that you can't just knock a bike together in..I dunno, how many months? 6? 8?, and expect it to be running at the front in this company/ level. No matter who's riding it! (Otherwise everyone would be doing it. Yes?)
No doubt it's hard for VR to cope with this, but he really needs to 'dig in', like his teamate is, and get on with the job of developing this bike. The photos we see of him hanging his head in despair are just not good enough.
Kudos to #69, I say!
When the going gets tough, the tough get going!
For Rossi, winning isn't enough. He wants to have fun racing.
Besides the struggles with developing the Ducati, I suspect the
tragic death of Marco Simoncelli may have several riders re-evaluating their priorities.
Their '07 MotoGP title is the only one they got without cheating.
Build your own M1
Not gonna turn real well with those flat-spotted tires!
What could go wrong?
Now they're making see-through chains too? Technology has certainly improved. The strippers are going to be pissed.
I'm not that much closer and I get to Monterey every year. It's not like the 800 miles between you and Monterey are flat and boring. (Between you and Indy, that's a different story...)
OTOH, you're a couple hundred miles closer to Salt Lake, and though it's not MotoGP, WSBK isn't to be sneered at, everything is cheaper, and the crowds are much lighter.
Pardon me if I fail to feel sorry for him. Maybe some time slinging burgers will calibrate his feelings?
I'm sure he's under a lot of pressure, but he's got one of the best jobs on the planet; if he doesn't like it, it's not like he can't afford to retire.
FP1: Nicky set second fastest time, on damp track( from his FB page update). Here's to hoping race day has a damp track too.
Is it just me, or does Karel Abraham have no business riding a big bike? Or even a little bike? Won 1 race in moto2 and 2 podiums, ever since 2005. :huh
Am I reading that wrong?
His Dad owns the Brno circuit.
