    After many broken bones, Travis Pastrana now races Nascar. To quote him "with age, get a cage":deal

    I'm a few months shy of 60.
    When I opt off the bike and into a fucking cage. Shoot me.
    I see no point in racing a car. MIght as well have grandma's Beelchfire 88 stationwagon.
    How long before he's in a casino with a bucket of quarters playing the slots?
    If you're walking away, walk away.

    It's like FOX can't give up on Romney. :lol3
    I thought he was going to spend time with his family?

    Have a look at Aussie & NZ V8 racing, it's subtly different from Nascar... however I have to agree to chuck in MotoGP for Aussie V8s is a pretty odd decision.



    Mind you, he is an Aussie and they are not known for their mensa candidates :D

    Why do New Zealand sheep farmers wear gumboots?

    Back on topic.....

    It's going to be a long wait before we really find out who, out of all the team/rider changes, is going to make the biggest diference for next year. It's going to be a boring summer, I think I'm going to ride more. :clap

    Make sure to pass along these sentiments to Sir John Surtees. I'm sure your wisdom will enlighten him.

    Yes, faster by almost 4 seconds. While Bautista was almost 4 seconds quicker than Dovi.

    Don´t know how much this kind of laptimes are worth. ​

    Zero. Conditions were changing all the time, track was mostly wet, then it spat with rain, and rained a little more heavily in the afternoon. Can't take anything from those times.

    Brad Smith, 1:35.775, Andrea Iannone, 1:35.6, Marq Marquez, 1:35.2.

    Compare them to Johnny Rea who struggled mightily to get into that territory.
