can't bring myself to attend Indy, hate that track, Laguna too far away. Austin it is....anyone else in the US making plans?
COTA's race schedule shows all 3 classes running, Laguna is MotoGP only (still).

I'll be at Austin, Turn 15 grandstands. Apparently most of the stands we saw on TV at the F1 race are taken down so the GA crowd can sit on hillocks around the track? Only stands for reserved tix are T15, main straight, and T1, all else is GA.

Rossi may be happy to be up there with the boys, but I think the yamaha execs are even happier!

No predictons, insight or hate, I'm just happy to see so many people buzzed about the coming season.

Thanks for the above pics


It looks like the Duck is more upright, and Rossi is hanging more off the inside, it almost looks like he is going to high side.

I guess I need to reup my motogp.com subscription.

Rossi has always been at his most competitive when happy. Its a very good start to repudiating his last seasons and hopefully to less than processional races at the front.

I love the pics out of that corner, my work desk top is Ben Spies sliding the shit out of the Yamaha there last year.

I don't think they are using ANY brakes at that point in that corner. Lots of throttle and a healthy dose of TC. IMHO.

Nicky gives a somewhat scathing review of the Sepang test:

Nicky doesn't have much to lose at this point.

Ah, the old "BNG" ploy. It works so well for laundry soap too.

Nicky sure is a trooper especially in the face of continued poor results. I'd be pretty depressed!

There's a lot on the line this year. Next year there will be 5 or 6 Honda Production racers available, the possibility of a handful of leased Yamaha motors available, and the possibility of Suzuki's return.
