There is a current exception for teams to use their own electronics. I am not sure if that option will continue.
That stays. The factories demanded it.

We saw what they did with a Honda engine. It got them run right out of Moto GP.

Yamaha says "effin twitter, here's the rules guys..."

http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/raci...motogp-policy/

Which is a bummer because I have loved Alex Briggs tweets and hate that they would put a cap on them. :( I don't think I've ever seen any damaging tweets from him either. But I guess Ben scorching the hair off their balls by quitting via twitter last year left a bad taste in their mouth.

Ben should have had more class but he was trying to protect his market value and brand. Don't get me wrong I hope he turns it around and I understand his misfortune but come on Twitter to announce he's leaving Yamaha, come on..

I'm trying to imagine some one like Barry Sheene or Eddie Lawson interacting with a 'media officer'.

Totally reasonable on yamaha's part. I'd insist the same if I was in charge. You never know when someone from within the team/company is going to say something stupid and tarnish the reputation of the whole company.

I agree, and a lot of large companies have this in place now. I just hope it doesn't totally wreck the information we get on twitter. Hell only reason I'm really even on twitter is for racing stuff.

Anyone have experience with the MotoGP Live Experience 2013 APP?

I don't have cable or cheap access to it and shift work (including Sundays) makes it difficult to catch the races live at work or friends places. I would love to have an app that allows me to watch the races live and/ or watch them at a later time. The app description is not very clear on what the $22.99 offers. It keeps saying live timing and scoring but does it also cover video for the whole race? Can it be watched at any time or live only? Does that cover the whole season? Thanks for any info!

I'm sure that app is an accessory to add to watching the race live and a few extra features.
You'll need the MotoGP subscription to watch the practices and races live or later. Most here agree it's well worth the money. And if you can get someone to share it with then your price drops in half (not technically legal but works).

Is that an online subscription? How much is that? I just want to be able to watch the big bike races. Don't have to have all the extra stuff if not needed. Thanks.

Never mind, see it now. Every time I clicked on the video pass it took me to the live experience app pop up. $126 dollars is a bit more. Now I got to decide if I can afford that right now.
