    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    What’s going on with the Ducati riders? As he already got a contract for next year you would think Bagnia would be more relaxed, but under pressure he tends to drop the bike, as yesterday. Miller on the other hand who is under pressure to hold his factory ride managed to keep his bike upright in the race which must have put him back in favour for holding his factory ride next year. Jorge Martin, on the other hand blows his chances by once again dropping his bike. All the while Bastianini gets another win, on last years bike, which must give him a very strong chance of a factory bike. Zarco, on his factory bike, promises the world but doesn’t quite deliver. So who are the 2 main factory riders next year. Unless there is a get out clause for Ducati, it’s got to be Bagnia, and then Bastianini. UNLESS Quartararo pinches a seat. I think he would do well in a Ducati. It is very noticeable that Aleix Espargaro has not got his signature down on Aprillia paper work yet, mush to his frustration. Could Quartararo pinch a ride there, perhaps with Rins? So much going on. Apart from a top money earner, I wouldn’t be rushing to get on a Honda. Now even Marc Marquez can get it on the podium, never mind the other three Honda riders. Going to be some losers at the end of the year. So many contracts up for renewal, plus another swathe of GP2 riders will be wanting to get in the top class. Sadly Jake Dixon might not be one of them. At the moment he doesn’t seem to be able to keep the bike upright. Pleased to see John McPhee coming back after a month, yesterday being his 2nd race of the season. A good steady race for him, finishing 12the (I think), not too far off the top group. He needs a ride next year, and it cannot be in Moto3 (he will be too old), so is there a place for him in MOTO2.??

    One at the top of his game, and two who are suffering the effects of injuries/covid. Could be 1 2 3 in the final results at end of year.

    Eurosport

    I have a BT box to watch BT sport on, and access to the BT Sport on my IPad, and I can pause/rewind/fast forward recorded sports events, obviously not live sport. My BT contract ends Jan 2023, what I do then I have not yet decided. Speedway GP and Premiership is with Discovery+ and I have their app at half price this year, and watch MotoGP/2/3 on BT sport. But it has got costly, and something has to go. Sort of 9 months to work out the figures and decide.

    World Snooker prediction competition 2022

    Both finalists played some really fantastic snooker. Bower, RO’Scwas the most consistent and that is what won him the title, not forgetting the £ 500,000.

    Engine Cases - Back in Black

    Some riders used an engine cover on the right side of the engine to protect the left leg from engine heat burns. Is that what you referring to.? For grass tracking I used motox leather trousers and they had a burn mark just abut the inside knee area.

    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    It happened a good few years ago when Suzuki wanted to leave, DORNA talked them into doing a year with one bike, the rider was Alvaro Bautista. I would love to see Aprilia have another two bike team. Plenty of riders who can fill the places. In Moto2 Canet seems as if he would do well on a MotoGP bike. Possibly Jake Dixon, if he would just not try as hard and stay on the bike.

    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    Suzuki did not make a further news statement this morning, probably because DORNA made one saying all teams are under a contract and none can leave MotoGP unilaterally, meaning DORNA must agree as well. All teams entered a 5 year contract with DORNA, 2022 is the first year, ends 2026. Sounds like DORNA will allow Suzuki to leave as there are other teams interested in moving into MotoGP. Ie Leopard. DORNA say they will decide how big the MotoGP grid should be.

    Big news from Jerez, more to follow, but Suzuki are withdrawing from MotoGP at the end of the season. No reasons yet given but expanded news expected to follow. Its reckoned Mir is on his way to Honda to ride with MM in 2023, meaning Pol out. I wonder if Aprilia can be persuaded to enter a second team, and/or Honda persuaded to do a third team. Dovi will retire anyway so a Yamaha free.

    GP round 1 Gorican Saturday April 30th

    Let us know how you get on.

    GP round 1 Gorican Saturday April 30th

    What you describe is exactly what mine was doing. I too was watching snooker, in Feb, and I knew who won the frame whilst I was still watching it. I was watching the Winter Olympics, short track speed skating, again I knew the winner of a race and I was still watching beginning of last lap. Very frustrating. As I said previously, I got one of the latest Roku Streaming Stick+, which the spec reads 4K Ultra HD, HDR, 1080p & 720p streaming upto 60 fps. I got mine off eBay as a opened box customer return, £32 instead of £55 new. If you anywhere near Chester I will lend you the stick to try.

    Has Sunak found some money from somewhere, I thought he was building a swimming pool.

    GP round 1 Gorican Saturday April 30th

    I can agree with a lot of that. What I did like was the pit layout, that has made a big jump forward. Looks smart. For me, what Disc+ needs to do is notify the large audience what time the meeting starts....... UK time, that is. 10:45 became 11:45, 4:30 became 5:50. Further, I log on for 10:45 and was greeted with You Need To Upgrade. Panic set in. Log in 4:30 and the same message. It got me wondering am I going to see the GP live (what I paid for).
