    After the awful news of Chris Rouse being killed at Donnington last week, it's been announced that Victor Steeman has succumbed to the injuries he sustained in the SBK Supersport crash on Sunday.

    Was there for the Victor crash. Knew it wasn't good.

    5 of his organs have been donated. What a hero.

    Don't think there will be much excitement with the races tonight. Moto 3 of course will have some bunch shenanigans but i think on the whole the races will be a bit more of a procession, no one seems amped up or anything, peculiar for Phillip Island imho

    Delighted to be utterly, utterly wrong about the racing, incredible stuff in all three.

    No Spoilers !!

    Some great racing this weekend (and not had a chance to watch Moto2 & 3 yet). Delighted for Bradley Ray to take the BSB title.

    Marc's 100th podium from just 152 starts in the premier class, a phenomenal stat!!

    I know Franco has a contract for next year (for some reason he is out of sync with other contracts) but with only a single Top10 finish this year I wouldn't be surprised if Yamaha demote him during the winter. They must be thinking Cal, who's beaten Franco in 3 out of 4 races so far, would be a better option? Not sure where they'd demote him to? Yamaha have no satellite team next year.

    With so many capable race winners, it's shaping up to be a cracking season next year.

    What happened Franco? Is it all down to his knee injury? He was looking like one of the shining talents of the future.

    His knee, moving to a new team, a new crew chief, a new bike.... lots of changes for him but this season he has averaged a second per lap slower than Quartararo on race day and on the same bike. That's just not good enough.

    He certainly has the talent, he's shown it. He was a contender for the championship two years ago and finished the season 2nd with 3 wins and 2 poles under his belt.

    He's in contract until the end of '23 and Jarvis has said his contract is safe, but I just can't see him being kept myself.

    What are you guys using for getting race start times

    I'm constantly googling start times , found Moto GP there but can't find WSB times

    Three more brilliant races. Definitely need santa to get me a videopass for next year at this rate..



  • Registered Users Posts: 680 ✭✭✭legrand


    Spoiler ahead (can't see how to hide the comment)


    Great result for McFee. No ride/job for next year that I know of. Shame - always rated him.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,654 ✭✭✭Infoanon


    Spoilers :


    What a race weekend!

    Delighted for John Mc Phee, he was 5th going into the last sequence of corners !

    It was later revealed that Michael Laverty (personal manager ) and Sylvan GuintoilI had to convince John Mc Phee not to quit racing on Saturday after he had lost all confidence in his riding (5 brake failures over the weekend not helping ).

    Michael later revealed that Johns race engineer had ignored all of John's bike change requests all season long - same race engineer who was / is fired after the Toby Amos Booth incident.

    Mc Phee stock will have jumped significantly after this weekend.

    Moto 2 - last lap drama , would it have been better to take the 20 points than to throw it all away for a win......,Valencia will be a nail biter !.

    Moto GP - thought the Beast was going to make a last lap move on Pecco - Great ride for Fabio but the odds are stacked against him in Valencia.

    Frankie finally showing some kind of form but a little late to help Fabio.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,772 ✭✭✭Scotty #


    Quartararo 1st in FP1, Pecco all the way down in 17th. Could be a nail biter on Sunday.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,957 ✭✭✭kirk.


    Some amount of crashes this morning



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,957 ✭✭✭kirk.


    I could listen to Michael Laverty all day such interesting commentary



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Regional West Moderators Posts: 60,174 Mod ✭✭✭✭Gremlinertia


    Roll on next year!. Enjoyed this season..

    I’m mixed on the title win. I was always a Pecco fan but I was really disappointed to hear about his drink driving incident. In a way I was hoping he would have to wait another year. He is such a great rider though.


    I’m gutted for Quartararo. He rode a much slower bike so well all year. I’d love to see a great fight between them next year on closer matched machinery.

    Yeah also interesting to see what marquez will bring. I'm no big fan but I admire the amount of fight in him.

    Really looking forward to Bastianini on the Ducati.



  • Registered Users Posts: 680 ✭✭✭legrand


    I'm a neutral as far as 63 and 20 are concerned. For me Rins 1 and Binder 2 was a delight. Class start for Rins, class end for Binder. Good results for Olivera and Mir too. Sorry for Aleix.

    Looking forward to the new tracks in Finland and Kazakhstan (assuming Putin's antics don't interfere).



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,772 ✭✭✭Scotty #


    +1. I've said this many times too. With his tech knowledge and Neil's strategy expertise they make a great team.

    Really looking forward to next year. BTW, testing is live on BT Sport all day tomorrow.

    Yamaha have taken on Suzuki's R&D engineer Tom o Kane, hopefully he'll get some improvement on the bike

    Such a clickbait type title, but anyway some news on sprint race regs for next year
