I would rather see him in contending in SBK than what he is doing now. I know he could make more in MotoGP but if there is no ride for him in MotoGP maybe he would take the SBK option assuming a ride would open up for him.

And we should see even less racing than before. They are planning on explaining more of the history of MotoGP and have interviews with misc folk.
Supposedly to introduce more of the general audience to MC racing.

GREAT....


Thank dog I have a MotoGP subscription

Thanks. This is not at all a smooth transition so far. A pretty sad statement on how inept 2 media giants are, in fact.

The link to the Fox Sports 1 website posted earlier in this tread gave me channel 66 for Fox Sports 1 (which actually is the Movie Plex Channel) and channel 173 which doesn't exist. Score one for the Fox website.


The guide on my Cox DVR either hasn't updated yet or is destined to remain wrong; it shows "Unique Whips" and "Barrett Jackson Car Auction" in those time slots. Score one for Cox.

But Cox's online guide does at least show "Motorcycle Racing" in those time slots, so I've made sure it records them.

Thanks again to the ADV collective!

I think KRSR dropped a pretty big bomb today. I had not heard of this before.

Could be. I am currently snooping around to see if I can find any hints.

To me, coming from someone with his background, "a big way" means prototype and something that can contend and anything less is not 'big way". But that doesn't seem possible.

Forward Racing or Marc VDS starting a team with factory production bikes would be "big way" but for KRSR that doesn't quite seem big way.

JMSO

Maybe his team will race Gixxas next year and be Suzuki satellite in 2015.

not so sure,he has tried that hasnt he.A big way would be a top tier rider with a very capable bike.To jump into 5th place or so is the best you could do i reckonThere are 4 very serious efforts in the top 4 places

Kenny Roberts has been working on a return since he left the paddock in 2007. To his credit, he is only prepared to come back if he can do it properly, and that means fully funded and with a competitive package. I don't think this latest news is anything new, it's just a continuation of that project.
