BRAD BINDER: 2016 Moto3 - It is time #41 Bradical!
« on: March 07, 2016, 02:50:54 pm »
This MUST be the year of #41!

I will be screaming myself hoarse for him. He has an excellent chance since he is the #1 rider (out of 2) in the #1 Moto 3 KTM Factory team. Although he was in the same team last year, the team fielded 3 riders and he was seen as the #2 rider.

His times for testing schedules over three days at Jerez in Spain this past weekend looks promising.  

Day 1:

 Session 1: 3rd
 Session 2: 7th


Day 2:

 Session 1: 7th
 Session 2: 1st

Day 3:

 Session 1: Not on track
 Session 2: 1st

Also rooting for him.   :thumleft:

Not sure if it was just me, but during the season last year I constantly got the impression his KTM lacked top end? He seemed to out brake almost anyone and carried great midcorner speed but then battled to even just stay in the Honda's slipstream.

This must be some of the best bike racing out there.

MotoGP I watch because of interest in the outcome.  Moto3 I watch for the awesome racing. 

The KTM did lack a bit of power last year.  Hopefully they have solved that for this year.

Brad Binder at Moto 3 Testing from Qatar:

Day I Session 1:

1st

Day 1 Session 2:

4th

Day 1 Session 3:

7th

Seems the hard rear tire they tested is not a good idea in terms of speed per lap.

I'm curious whether they play the whole SA anthem when Brad takes his first victory or only the first bit.

Good luck #41 - been shouting myself horse since he started in Moto3

They normally play only the first bit.  That may well be a good thing.  Imagine we had to listen to the whole Japanese anthem everytime a Japanese bike won!   :snorting:

When Brad won his first Red Bull Rookie Cup Race they played the wrong anthem.  Memory fails now which country it was.  Anyway, I am sure Dorna will have the right one ready now.

Also worth a scream or two is #40 Darryn Binder.  This season he will ride a Mahindra again.  The curse of all racers, a "customer" Mahindra.  These bikes are just not competitive unless the team have a very, very rich sponsor.

His testing times from Qatar:


Day 1 Session 1:  21st
Day 1 Session 2:  20th
Day 1 Session 3:  28th  (Amazing about Moto 3.  This is only 2 seconds slower than P1!)

I will try not to watch the races, because when I watch a rider that I really support things tend to go wrong for them, so I will watch the next day.

I really want Brad to have a good season!!
