Ohh Rollocks.

It would seem that the 2014 8Tai will not be hosted on Ustream this year.

At the moment I'm back & forth with BS 12 TwellV in Japan for an online stream.

Google Translate is working overtime today!

It gets worse

..... like the AMA can afford less coverage then what it gets now.

Sadly the #AMA / DMG management are a laughing stock world wide. They are preventing future young talent in progressing to the world stage.
Sadly, Herrin is the proof of this mixture not working.

Herrin vs Lowes..... no further comments needed.

Fingers crossed the #AMA becomes the AMA Proper again...... not this joke of a domestic championship.

So what's the overlap between the Laguna races and the World Cup final?

Dani Pedrosa signs 2 year HRC deal

Well, I'm not sure how much Dani Mamola Pedrosa is paying them, but he has got the 2nd Repsol seat for another 2 years.

Shame, we wont have that bike available for "Tissot" Rabat in 2016 now.

More details to follow when they come through

" Pedrosa, who currently lies third in the World Championship – level on points with second placed Valentino Rossi – as the season reaches the halfway point, will extend his contract with Honda with whom he has raced in the World Championship since 2001.

Pedrosa is a three time World Champion (2003 in 125cc, 2004 and 2005 in 250cc) and made his debut in MotoGP™ in 2006 in the Repsol Honda Team, claiming the Rookie of the Year title and fifth position in the Championship. He has been both runner up and third in the premier class on six occasions (three each).

Shuhei Nakamoto, HRC Executive Vice President, commented, “We are very pleased to renew our contract with Dani. He is enjoying a very strong season and is currently tied with Rossi in the Championship, we are very happy with his performance. The partnership of Dani and Marc (Marquez) has proven to be successful and we look forward to another two years of success.”

Pedrosa added, “I'm very happy to be able to announce my renewal with the Repsol Honda Team, and grateful to Honda for the trust they have shown in me for a further two years. It’s the best way for me to continue in my racing career, together with the company I was with in my very first race. I am very excited to give my 100% and continue to work together with everyone at Honda Racing Corporation.”

And what about JLO. He still hasn't signed with yahama yet. Maybe if he goes to HRC they will run a 3 man team.
Everyone kept saying Rossi is old he's over the hill etc but I knew he would be back up top. This year has been epic.

Hot from yesterday evenings practices at the Southern 100 Road races here on the Isle of Man.
 
Despite yesterday (Monday) being a Bank Holiday here on the Isle of Man to celebrate "Tynwald Day" the Isle of Man's independance day (5th July) I needed to get some work done, I am planning to go down to Castletown on Thursday to watch the racing in the day so need to get ahead.
Me and Sharon popped down for a while to watch the practice sessions, well root around the paddock really but managed to get a few photo's of the bikes and riders in Parc Ferme.

MotoGP - Sachsenring.

Apparently, riders Bradley Smith, Andrea Iannone and Stefan Bradl will ride turn 11 before the weekend to assess whether the MotoGP Safety Commission's (the one's that did sod all about checking if Bridgestone tyres lasted on the new abrasive surface of Philip Island) plan of how to change the fantastic corner at the top of the 'Waterfall' and report back.

The commission claims it will follow the rider's decision. Quite what it says about those three if they report that they should alter the layout I leave to others.

Portimao raceday timetable.
12.00 SBK, 13.30 SSP, 15.00 SBK, 16.15 STK

So why is this another round that's not to Dorna's new timetable?

And what exactly was wrong with the old
10.40 STK, 12.00 SBK, 13.30 SSP, 15.30 SBK

And Dorna are still fiddling with the rules for 2015 and 2016. Can they avoid the unintended consequences that end up making the racing more expensive and sponsorship harder to obtain?

The F1 usually goes off at 1pm UK time.
I know you don't watch it but it was a really interesting topsy turvy qualifying yesterday thanks to our typical UK weather.
In Moto GP terms imagine Tech 3 on the back row, Michael Laverty in the midfield with Marquez just in the top 10. Basically 70% of the field out of position. Its gonna be an interesting race.

Hot of the press.....well my phone anyway
Tuesdays Southern 100 action for you to enjoy
 
A few more pictures but also some video shot at the Southern 100 here on the Isle of Man this evening (Tuesday)
Apologies for some of the poor video work but I am still learning my phone, it's not all bad though.
I hope it gives you some of the sights and sounds of this really friendly little meeting where there are no forbidden areas, apart from the ones for safety. A great field of really good riders to mingle amongst, not like Moto GP or even BSB racing.
This is how racing should be!

After a quiet few week since the end of the TT its time to go racing again.
The Southern 100 Road races start this evening
Both classic and modern bikes are competing at one of the best meeting of the year and the weather is looking good all week. 
It could be a classic!

Its a pretty physical circuit! High speed corners and four big stops, I always found it the most knackering circuit to ride. The ten Lappers really took it out of you and you were praying for the last lap. So I don't blame him, what with Guy Martin being pretty quick round here he would never be in the chance of a win anyway.

Second collection of Avintia Racing pictures from Assen GP.

On recent performance both riders have commented: 

Mike Dimeglio suggests, and is supported by Kawasaki Racing's deputy chief that the biggest struggle they have is setting the geometry for the bike at each circuit. This was something the World Superbike team struggled with extensively for more than a year. Quite why is uncertain.

It has been suggested the mix of a long(-ish) wheelbase and sharp fork angle makes set up very different to shorter wheelbase norm.

Furthermore, the shock position, below 45 degrees from the horizontal, makes suspension travel harder to set up. Although I believe some feel could be lost from the angle this is not the first bike to utilize this so it seems unlikely.

One obvious problem is with suspension. Initially, the intention was to use Showa suspension the same as used by the Kawasaki Racing Team but due to problems with contracts (I am unclear what this means!) the team use relatively old, customer spec Ohlins suspension (circa 2009: ttx shock and 42mm inverted forks). Almost all teams now use through rod suspension tech on shock and forks, for whatever reason this team does not. Money presumably?

Allegedly, the team spends more on hospitality than racing. This must change if they are serious.

If one discounts Aleix Espargaro, the speeds of the Avintia bikes are faster than the ARTs of last season- although comparing seasons is always problematic.

One of the biggest problems to my mind is Hector Barbera. He has been slower this year than he was last year in the last three races. When asked about the problems with the bike he replied that there weren't any significant problems. Both of these things should worry the team. He reports he is happy with his performance because he is beating his team mate but it is his team mates first season in MotoGP on an allegedly recalcitrant bike.

Still, rider or bike, Avintia Racing need to start improving their results.
