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:

Janee!  Get them racing do we have something to watch and get excited about.  If that means two races a week apart on Jerez, so be it.  Heck, I am reaching a point where them racing around the parking lot of a shopping center will be okay!

Apparantly VR46 will have an option to sign for 2022 as well.

Wow!  Virtual race from Misano was a good one.

AM73 nailing MM93 in th elast corner to take the win.  MM93 2nd and VR46 3rd after FQ crashed on the last lap.

Virtual racing from the UK this Sunday.  All three classes.  MotoGP will feature a wildcard in JL99.

Meanwhile, back on the 4-wheeled side of the ranch, a driver hires a ringer to race an e-sport race for him!   :patch:

Rumours going around that Pol Espargaro will be leaving KTM to join MM93 at Honda . I Was not expecting that. AM73 to go to LCR.

Maybe Cal is getting the boot for saying the Honda is crap to ride and it's only MM's riding skill that gets it where it is.

Maybe he just wasn't ready when they went into testing.. it was a very big ask of Alex to get into that role,

Lets see what happens, Ridefast Mag is saying that Pol is on the verge of signing but im not counting those chickens just yet.. I still rate Zarco for the seat.

Ktm will probably then move Oliveira to the factory team.

Poor kid.  Never even rode the Repsol Honda in anger and already hearing he is out next year.

I see Repsol Honda is denying this as a rumour at present.

Dovi has been made an offer and Crutchlow is a possible too... To spearhead development.

Well if AM73 goes to LCR I think Cal will be looking for a ride as I dont think they will get rid of Nakagami.

What's the link between Nakagami and Idemitsu? Are they funding him?

Perhaps ...... Or a Honda+Nakagami link likely....

Unfortunately, in racing, the cheque book often talks loudest.  A rider bringing big sponsorship, will almost always have better opportunity than a rider, even if he is better, than a rider without the same big sponsorship.   There are exceptions, but they are few and far between.
