Krop,

What is going on with Romano Fenati in Moto3 this year? He had a race win and some flashes of brilliance last year but this year just doesn't have the pace. He lucked into an 8th place finish at Jerez (attrition) but he was at about a 14th place pace. Is it the bike/team, or just a sophomore slump?

Thanks,
Brent

Yeah, I enjoyed watching him last year, and I know he was underfunded then.

He is on a Honda and they are struggling in Moto 3 vs. the KTM powered bikes.

This. You would not believe the bitching from the Honda teams about HRC's lack of interest in improving their Moto3 engine. Overall, the FTR and Suter chassis are better than the KTM, but the KTM has a clear horsepower advantage. Slower tracks, the HP makes a bit less difference.

It's not just Fenati, it's all of the Honda riders.

I won't be home and can hope someone captures this and offers it. But if you are in the UK or can go to one of the streaming sites this sounds like a must see.

Good. I'd like to see another manufacturer or two in MotoII as well

Because the racing is not good enough? Personally not interested in another manufacture at all. That class does not need half the field out of contention because one engine is superior. I am not saying the series is perfect and I don't know the good/bad cost consequences of another(s) engine supply but if it aint broke.......

I'm in the UK and recording the programme, I don't mind copying it on to disc a few times and posting them out if someone's really desperate to see it - let me know.
