    Rev Limiters

    The new GM NX engine assembled at the factory is 3995€ + VAT so its not that one then... The way I see it, why bother creating a new spec engine since it’s not gonna get used anyway. It would need to be introduced accross the world and replace the old ones and we know thats not gonna happen.

    Rev Limiters

    Ok, but they are not in the FIM CCP which is the name list I copypasted. Anyway, like we remember from GTR thread about two years ago we knew the limiters were coming. At basically no extra cost. still, I’m with Vince that ban shortstrokes and go back a few steps on that route.

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    say a rider gets ruled out on tuesday after crashing and compare that with a similar incident on friday evening. I’d be amazed if a GP substitute rider can dash to the GP with a 20h notice. For eaxample from anywhere in the UK to the other side of Europe... Most of them can do it in 4 days

    I saw a dyno test sheet yesterday that I've seen before as well. It clearly showed that all the current engines lose power at around 10500 rpm.So after that the higher revs are a bit iffy... Are they needed or not??

    Nicklas Porsing and Rzeszow

    Not really, but on the other hand all my info regarding this matter is something I’ve gathered from the press and/or internet. She has been in direct conversation with the bloke and lives in the ”same world” with him...

    Darija Pavlic on twitter yesterday with a quite a harsh comment regarding Nawrocki. Always thought she was quite a sensible person so something must be really wrong...

    Only flat track action I saw this season was at Forssa during the LT Nordic final. A 1000 meter long gravel track with four bikes doing a 12 lap final heat. Needless to say I used the remaining 11 laps to have a wee before the final heat of LT.

    I was speaking with a mate some years ago who was very much in to motorbikes and Motogp racing but knew bugger all about speedway. He thought flat track was pointless as it did not serve purpose training wise to other disciplines. So a bit like speedway...??? Dont have an opinion on that myself. Also the Superprestigio was growing back then and he just said that the whole Spanish setup was due to MArguez doing it. People wanted to race against him and that was possible...

    Here in Finland. In Finland we had a racing class that translates more or less "Sports machines" (thats not good translation) that was very active lets say until late 90's. It was mx or iceroadracing bikes that had approved tires for the tracks they used. It was a class that was ridden in longtrack meetings as a support class and had enough riders to justify themselves. For some reason with the decline of LT racing itself that class disappeared completely. Until FT was re-invented by Castagna and taken under CCP in the FIM early this decade. I think the first FIM Cup was at Forssa and won by that italian fellow. Anyway, FT in Finland is the same as the old class mentioned, only that U need to use FT tyres homologated by FIM. So far we've had a few "speedway-quitters" taken on FT but not the other way around. There really arent meetings for this class on speedway tracks, I think there's been one since the class was launched as FT, and they've ridden a few alongside LT. I have to put my hand up and say I'm a speedway fan and these mx bikes doing circles while bouncing and braking in to corners does not appeal to me AT ALL. It's boring. But I'm just one, there are over 5M of us more in Finland.

    Though theoretically all your comments are valid, I've not yet seen that happen over here… Blokes and motorbikes, well I guess thats true.
  15. The Finnish rider to ride in the meeting in question knows he’s doing it like all the others doing it for SML allocations do too. So you are correct. Not my place to name them yet though...
