Well well well. Motogp has certainly shaken things up a bit this weekend past. With a little bit of stirring as well. Who knew that the recently revised regulations would throw up such a hornet’s nest …
Lorenzo out before the 1st lap was even over. Bautista down while in 2nd. Smith out while in 5th. Rossi finishing 2nd and giving Marquez a real go of it. The dusty track conditions didn’t help the fallers much. Very interesting times to say the least.
The factory and open classes still don’t make a huge amount of sense to me especially with Ducati straddling the 2, but let’s wait and see. The Yamahas while initially struggling in practice and qualifying, did show good pace in the main race so hopefully this will be a good even season.
On another note and not quite racing, a big thanks to Mike Hopkins Motorcycles for the track day this Saturday past. Really great fun and the first time I had a chance to really get the R1 moving. She’s a beast!
