They're gonna bolt in a Fireblade motor because it makes more power.

Thanks Yoop.

Not like a better motor isn't needed.

Makes it easier to track, plus as a courtesy we don't talk results in this main thread for a couple of days so folks have a chance to view the race without spoilers.

Current results in the event thread is the norm, so folks know not to read them until they've seen the race.
You complete me.

Are they attaching a redesigned anchor?

No spoilers, but, WOW!

Thank heavens the season is well and truly begun. The fact that there was so much actual joy in the dice for the lead bodes well for this year.

Cool2 BBC to VideoPass convert!

As a Brit MotoGP fan I was gutted when the BBC lost MotoGP coverage, I don't have/want satellite and I wasn't prepared to switch to BT as my ISP just to get MotoGP coverage so my only option was the DORNA Video Pass. It won't be news to those who've already used this service but I'm so pleased I took the plunge. Fantastic to be able to watch all the practice sessions, Moto2 and Moto3. Yes Nick Harris is a bit wayward at times but it's so good not to have to listen to Charlie Cox's nonsense on the BBC. Oh and the sound! SOOOO much better than I was used to on TV, amazing to hear the bikes properly. The race wasn't too bad either........ Roll on COTA and another long weekend's worth of entertainment.

Glad it is working out for you. Although I knew there were some changes in features this year depending on which package you bought I still thought if you didn't buy the top tier package that you would still be able to switch of commentary sound (like last year) and just have track audio. That appears to not be the case, which is disappointing.

I just cut the cord with my cable company, purchased Dorma Video Pass, used mirroring capability on my IPAD with Apple TV for the first time this weekend. Needless to say this is the way to go for MotoGP. No commercials, all of the races, qualifying, and practice.

I will also save just over 1k this year not paying cable company for 20 minutes of race coverage on Fox1 and what seems like 40 minutes of commercials.

I muted the commentary after Nick Harris kept yammering about some unrelated point throughout Lorenzo's crash and walk in the gravel. It's as if he's doing the commentary while working on a crossword puzzle.

The video alone makes subscription worth it though.

Yes I was hoping to be able to do that as well. As annoying as Nick Harris is though he's in a different league to Charlie Cox (who used to partner Steve Parrish on the BBC commentary). Why anyone would employ a has been cage racer to commentate on bike racing I have no idea.
