    Fair suck of the sav, it does look like it should be slightly more interesting than Ipswich.

    From a pair of blokes who have raced plenty of iconic tracks, they should know better.

    I was looking at that Quarry next to it and thought surely they could do something by incorporating that! :thumb

    And still makes it to pole position...pretty awesome...looking forward to the race tonight...I wonder if second day soreness will set in for Quarterz and he fades in the race...perhaps another winner this weekend. Crutchlow for the win?

    I'm with you mate. It looks like the coathanger circuit with a bend in it - shithouse.

    Top Speeds for the GP make interesting reading, Yamaha seem to be around 10kph down on top end.

    multipurpose facility which, along with a 4.34-kilometre circuit built to FIA Category 2 compliance with multiple layouts, would also feature a rallycross circuit, karting circuit, off-road circuit and tracks, driver training facilities and a concert amphitheatre.

    And Alan Jones and Murdoch media will have helped pay for it with the money the Wagner's won in their law suite.

    Sounds even better, well, better than a government paying for it, they all have too much debt already.

    Yeah it's an amazing year. Still a lot of riders can win the championship say if you have 50 points max to win....top 9 still have a chance...more realistic maybe 30 points max with the year it's been then it's going to be Mir with his consistent riding or Quarterz. Vinales as the dark horse.

    It's not that bad. Compare it with Philip Island which if looked at on paper could also said to be a boring track but produces some of the best racing in the world.

    Excellent weekends racing in the Moto and BSB. If only I can find some non one eyed British commentators for Moto and WSBK.

    BSB was even better with 2 Aussies vying for the title.

    Wondering why we haven't seen Lorenzo as a wildcard. Does he have long term issues with his back or not interested? Funny that Yamaha took him on and he's been quiet. Lot of talent in the yammie pack I suppose...and perhaps Yamaha wanted to retain the knowledge of the bike they produce....

    Pretty deep Q2...wonder what dovi will throw this week...
