Read this on a couple of facebook posts including Ride Fast magazine. I don't know how true its but as they say if its on the interwebs it must be true  :spitcoffee: :lol8:

MotoGP is preparing for races behind closed doors, with the first one being the Austria GP at the Red Bull Ring.

No media will be allowed, or spectators. The teams will have a barebones crew and it will be broadcast on TV as normal!

That'll be awesome, just to see some racing. 'm convinced most riders are itching to get going as well.

True.  The possibility is being investigated.

Brads Parrot. The most frustrating video to watch with dogs barking and internet fails but still worth it.

Rossi moving to Aprilia in 2021?

Real or a belated April Fools joke?

Would be great, I think! A real make or break for Rossi and Aprilia both.

This rumour had been touring around somewhat.  Currently, I cannot find anything that confirms that a deal was signed.  Remember, he does have the option of a factory spec Yamaha in Petronas colours next year.  My wild guess is that Yamaha, Petronas and Rossi are in talks to create the Petronas VR46 team, with Rossi as a rider for 2021 and thereafter team manager.

Inderdaad!  So besig om die ANC sleg te sÍ deesdae, julle kry nie meer kans om BMW sleg te sÍ, geld te maak, of skelmpies in vakansiehuise aan te hou nie.   :lol8:

2 at the same place seems a bit iffy but I suppose they gotta chase the money as well. It's a bit bigger than a few midgets swinging handbags on fast bikes.

Like you, OomD, I'll accept anything. It is, after all, just about entertainment for the rest of us ......................  :thumleft:
