Any word on Maverick Vinales going to Moto2??

Based on that tweet sounds like Casey is definately going to V8 Supercars....

Why would anybody racer V8 Supercars?
Slotcars maybe but really? After motoGP? It was that fucking boring?
That kid has some issues.

Oh, and I may have wasted my time re-upping for the off season, since live isn't an option. But it was cheaper.

After many broken bones, Travis Pastrana now races Nascar. To quote him "with age, get a cage"

I'm a few months shy of 60.
When I opt off the bike and into a fucking cage. Shoot me.
I see no point in racing a car. MIght as well have grandma's Beelchfire 88 stationwagon.
How long before he's in a casino with a bucket of quarters playing the slots?
If you're walking away, walk away.

It's like FOX can't give up on Romney.
I thought he was going to spend time with his family?

Have a look at Aussie & NZ V8 racing, it's subtly different from Nascar... however I have to agree to chuck in MotoGP for Aussie V8s is a pretty odd decision.



Mind you, he is an Aussie and they are not known for their mensa candidates

Why do New Zealand sheep farmers wear gumboots?


Back on topic.....

It's going to be a long wait before we really find out who, out of all the team/rider changes, is going to make the biggest diference for next year. It's going to be a boring summer, I think I'm going to ride more.

Make sure to pass along these sentiments to Sir John Surtees. I'm sure your wisdom will enlighten him.
