That next weekend Rossi, together with his friend Alessio Salucci race at the Nurburgring in a Ferrari 458? That the Moto 3 is more expensive than the 125? That what was at Misano detached stronger Spies?
MotoGP’s Dorna vs Kevin Schwantz
Dorna, the Spanish company that manages the World Championship since 1992, had signed an agreement with the company of Kevin Schwantz to carry on negotiations with the unborn circuit in Texas and organize a Grand Prix World Championship. But before the trip to Misano, Dorna, through a press release, has made it known that he broke the contract unilaterally and to deal directly with the manufacturers of the track. Schwantz, who was in Misano to take part in the many initiatives in favor of Marco Simoncelli (along with 15 other cyclists, reached Coriano, home to the parents of Sic, bike to Donington, for a total of 1800 km relay paths in a week), a specific question about what is happening, cut short: “No Comment”.
Calender of late
That of the U.S. route is one of the many problems facing the organizers Dorna, because the global economic crisis is challenging many GP. For this reason, the draft calendar for the next season, which is usually issued in August, has not yet been reported: there are many races at risk, starting with the four Spanish. You just have to wait, but it is clear that the future is far from rosy.
Misano for other three years
At Misano, on the contrary, we will continue to run for another three years, more probably in mid-September. A date that seemed, in truth, not too happy, but that was intended by the organizers and from neighboring towns to “stretch the season.” If Friday and Saturday at the circuit there were few people – even the bad weather conditions – Sunday are declared more than 45,000 spectators (the hills were more than fairly busy …), with good satisfaction of the audience.
Yamaha,Ben Spies:”I’m from the first three”
While in his own way, so very succinctly, Ben Spies explained why he preferred the Ducati MotoGP BMW SBK. “In SBK know and have already proved my worth in MotoGP, for various reasons, no. I did not want to have regrets so I decided to accept the proposal from the Ducati interesting, although I know well that is a difficult challenge. In general, I think I can be in the top three and I want to show. “
Colin Edwards and renew Alex De Angelis
After Indianapolis had called the CRT as a “motion of shit,” Colin Edwards decided a little ‘surprise, to continue to run even in 2013 and will be riding the Suter-BMW Team Forward. The team of Gianni Cuzzari would even like to redouble our efforts, but at the moment there are no jobs available. Instead continue with two riders in Moto2 with Alex De Angelis confirmed, while still not been decided the second pilot (currently Yuki Takahashi).
Danillo Petrucci to change the bike
As widely announced at Misano Danilo Petrucci has abandoned Yoda with trellis frame and engine Aprilia (standard) for a Suter-BMW identical to that of Edwards, bike Danilo had tried the week before the GP at Mugello. At Misano, Petrucci had at his disposal only one bike (what would have happened if the race “flag to flag”? Mah …): the second will surely come for the triple posting, but possibly as early as next GP at Aragon. The results, for the moment, were not too exciting, but these changes do during the season is never easy.
Expensive,not economic of Moto3
Among the reasons for which it was introduced Moto3 instead of 125 there is a hypothetical saving money. Hypothetical, precisely because, on balance, the new category cost more than the old one, even comparing the Aprilia RSA, the 125 most expensive ever. For each pilot, will spend about € 100,000 for the engines, to which must be added the costs of the revisions and the bike (60,000 euro), for a final cost really substantial. The formula is undoubtedly interesting, but do not say, however, that it is cheap.
The extreme weather conditions have in fact undermined completely the first day of practice (and, indeed, even the turn of Saturday morning), with very few drivers on the track, almost exclusively those riding CRT. Conditions similar for the other categories, where, however, he turned. Why? “Why try in those conditions did not help, because there was a risk of injury not only to collect meaningful data and to save the motors (up to six per season, NDA).” So the problem was found to bind in some way the riders out on the track, requiring a minimum number of revolutions: a palliative that does not solve the problem.
The many initiatives promoted Simoncelli did a little ‘forget – forget guiltily – Shoya Tomizawa, who died at Misano September 5, 2010 during the Moto2 race. In the circuit, however, was the mother of this cute Japanese rider – Yukiko, whom he met, among others, Jorge Lorenzo – and the place of the incident (to bend) was placed a bouquet of flowers in tribute to Tomizawa.
The doctor,Valentino Rossi in Ferrari
Next weekend, Valentino Rossi, with his friend Alessio Salucci and Andrea Ceccato rider, will race at the Nurburgring in a Ferrari 458 in the Blancpain Endurance Championship, which has already raced at Monza this spring. A passion to Valentino for cars and the end of November, as usual, will be the start of the Rally of Monza.
HRC,Jonathan Rea:”I do not understand more”nothing”
Jonathan Rea, the replacement for Casey Stoner riding a Honda, it seemed right a bit ‘dazed. “I was in Russia for SBK – told – when I was asked if I agreed to replace Stoner, performing the first three days of testing. I immediately took a plane and went first to Brno, then in Aragon, but after a couple of days I was back riding my Honda SBK (for the GP of Germany, NDA) and then, the race is over, they are broken down by Misano, then next week I’ll be back in SBK, then come back for the race in MotoGP Aragon. Yes, actually I’m a little ‘confused”.
The special stretcher
At Misano, in collaboration with the medical center and the Clinica Mobile, was presented a special stretcher that provides a speedup of relief operations, with a very high safety standard. Fortunately it was not necessary to use it, but according to the experts is a good step forward.
Ben Spies great peeler
Brembo, the Italian company that provides the brakes most of the MotoGP team, said that under braking “Oak” is up to 288 km / h, brake to about 267 meters for 5.7 seconds, with a pressure on the lever of 5.3 kg, for entry into a curve around 90 km / h. Collecting data acquisition, Brembo said that the pilot was peeling below the curve was Spies, followed by Rossi, Crutchlow, Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Dovizioso, Abraham, Hayden (convalescent their right hand, the brake) , Barbera and De Puniet.
