Haven't watched a lot of MotoGP for a couple of years but that race today was brilliant!
4 top riders duelling all the way with no-one really gaining the upper hand.
I was just hoping that none of them made a mistake and crashed out.
Brilliant race!

Excellent race! And great to see most of the stands full!
Interesting the differences in the bikes - is that something V8SC want to aim for?

It was a gem

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

That poor seagull.

I didn't watch Moto2 but Moto3 and MotoGP were both excellent.

Sepang and Valencia are looking like must watch battles between Jorge and Valentino with that 11 point margin at the top of the table.

4 riders on 3 different brands within a poofteenth on laptimes.
Parity and entertainment achieved without forcing identical specs or safety cars?

Something for both V8SC and F1 to consider.......

Yes MotoGP does have 'Áontrol' tyres (but you can choose which to run) and a control ECU but the specs are much more open in general.

The Moto3 race first was great. The Moto2 race was a bit boring, but my god that MotoGP race was fantastic. There's been some awesome races this year, but that was by far the best one of all. I'm glad Marquez got the win too. I also would've accepted Iannone getting it.

The title fight is so good. Eve though I'll be a PI this weekend for state racing. I may leave early to watch Malaysia.

Not really. The simple nature of bikes means you can't really muck around with it like in car racing.
