the last few laps show what champions (or numnuts) these guys are... shocking weather with wind and rain but they didn't let up.

congrats Casey.

Was offered free tickets courtesy of working for Iveco. Didnt take up the offer cause really didnt feel like driving all the way to Phillip Island. Wish I had now would have been fantastic to have been there today to see Stoner wrap up the championship on home soil.

Congratulations Casey Stoner!! While the race itself was a let down without Lorenzo, I'm happy to see Casey win his second title on home soil on his birthday!!!
The list of finishers was small. It would have to be a concern to the organisers of MOTO GP.

the list of starters was small Darren... think it was only 14 riders? in the premier motorcycle class... even with the 3 non-starters it's not acceptable.

I believe there are several new teams coming next year to increase grid numbers.

Yelp already been announced as a rider is Colin Edwards to ride for a current Moto 2 team, who will move into Moto GP.

Also not that many will care, but for the ones that do (including me) Jorge Lorenzo has pulled out of the season final race due to the severed finger, and will probably miss the season final test.... Not the news I needed! :(

maybe not but prob smart move HDT... if he isn't in the run to win the championship then let the finger repair itself properly and give it a good bash again next year.

I hope so. It's embarrasing to have such small grids when your paying points beyond entrants.

As Lorenzo is out of the championship hunt, it's best to let the finger heal and get ready for next year. He's already secured second place hasn't he?

Well said, that would be the best option.

Many congrats to Casey. He was certainly in a class of his own in that race. Pity Lorenzo couldn't race, but he could only have delayed the inevitable - Casey Stoner 2011 World champ!
