Can The Doctor reclaim his throne from Marc Marquez in 2015?  I believe he can.

I'm hoping Rossi wins it. Lorenzo is dangerous when everyone writes him off he shows what he can do. Marquez has to be favourite but he hasn't had a bad crash yet in MotoGP and they make or break a rider when it first happens which in time it always does.

While winter sets in around the motorcycling world, how about starting a quiz? There are thousands of photographers out there, both amateur and pro. Post some images and play guess the picture. Either a venue (race circuit), bike or rider. It will pass some time until pre-season testing

About time too

I've been saying for the last couple of seasons that '*bus stopping & caravans*' needs penalty points & also for repeat offenders, large $£€ fines.

This year in #Moto3 has been ridiculous. The hanger ons have been uncontrollable.

Let's hope the new guidelines will make these jokers pull their socks up.

Reading on another forum the concept that Jack Miller is the new Carl Fogarty, I wonder what other's thought may be?

We are talking about personality here, not riding styles. Arguably both thrive on friction and a sense of injustice. Both seemingly have chips on their shoulders and appear to enjoy the hatred  from the competitors and even fans. They soak it up and it feeds into their performances. Surely both know they are (were) divisive figures, and neither seem care.

We hear frequently from Dorna that we must improve the show and a sure fire way to do so is to engineer a 'baddie'. Miller is perfectly suited to being this to Marquez's apparent happy, easy going nature (which of course is to some degree an affectation). 

I am not yet convinced Miller has the speed or skill to match Marc Marquez, but if he does, there could be some proper divison and needle in the sport again.

+Keith Williams Right colour passport ......

I know if Tito Rabat had not signed for Marc VDS for 2015 then LCR would have snapped him up without thinking about it. A much more proven talent.

Ducati are set to reveal their entirely new GP15 machine this morning in a live online presentation. The bike, the first built by legendary race engineer Gigi Dall’inga, is a crucial moment for the Italian firm’s race program after a number of seasons in the doldrums.

Anyone can send a 'me fast, send free shit,' email to try and get some race sponsorship - if you are racing here's some tips I gathered on how you can be different than the other guy in the next paddock.

Donington gets BSB, WSB, MotoGP.

But have they grassed and opened up the whole of the infield to spectators? Have they sorted the sight lines? Are there enough loos?

The full Donington Park provisional race event calendar for 2015 has been revealed, with racing taking place on almost every weekend from the end of March

Silverstone can produce some great racing, but it always looked way better on TV. Donington has produced one or two great races, but more often than not it turns into a procession. Once upon a time it was a pretty good place to watch with just some problems with sight lines. One of the best parts of Donington was the totally anarchic campground and the party in the hangers. But that died around 2001. The issue right now is that the failed attempt to re-work the circuit for F1 left a muddy building site where half the infield where people sat in the sun is now out of bounds. The question is whether they can get the money together to open it up again. It'll still be great on TV but may not be worth the extortionate entry fee to actually attend.

Who is "The G.O.A.T" ?

With Hailwood / Ago / Marquez / Rossi / Doohan etc all in the running, its the good old % that will help decide this.

Great article (as always) from +Mat Oxley  via +Motorsport Magazine

Colin Edwards coined this phrase about Valentino in the first place. It's Rossi END OF. Numbers are for games of Darts and percentages are for discounts. Marquez can find his own nickname. Stoner had a few of those, Rossi has G.O.A.T

+Keith Williams I think the problem came because Gareth hockey wanted mxgp to bring families back to the sport , we had lost masterly basin an it wasn't looking good for a British round, so he kept the tickets to a all time low an not realising that riders an sponsers , mechanics an there families o an the cats mother wanted to get in for nothing yep a big business mistake also not realising also how much youthstream would set other standards, he had run weston beach race over the years with great success an other events , I dont know perhapse it was to bigger cherry to bit an his research wasn't done properly an hopefully recuperate his losses the following year sadly not thou. This Welsh circuit looks great on paper but as I said ive been there numerous times now an yep it is a shambles white elephant is a understatement im afraid, im not sure if dorna has signed anything yet an I will be surprised if they do .as for knighter what an why what a talented rider , I met up with him last month at weston after his privater yamaha broke down a race that he should of won as before, as ive said before I may be tailking bollocks but if a multi world an British champion can't get the support he needs How are our youngsters supposed to get on , , something does need to be done or someone needs a kick in the arse to wake them up or do we just sit back an have more British teams with more foreign riders .

I think someone jumped the gun a bit ith this story, MCN (that well known comic) has taken down the story off its web page and now this.
I'm sure its just dotting the I's and crossing the T's but someone is going to get their wrist slapped me thinks.
 
Northern Ireland’s TAS Racing squad has refused to confirm or deny reports it will become BMW Motorrad UK’s official team for the British Superbike Championship and international road races in 2015.

+H.T.V. Blu I am surprised anyone talks to MCN!
I would'nt trust them to get a shopping list correct, and this is'nt a recent thing, it's bloody endemic! they have been mis quoting and wrong reporting for as long as I can remember.
Prehaps this is the problem, no-one does talk to them so everything is back street rumours
