Major Racing Weekend MotoGP, WSBK, BSB

Post by Henrik on Fri May 04 2012, 22:03

This is one loaded weekend with races in the three championships.

The first good news is that Ben looks to have finally woken up. Even though the conditions were tricky, he placed second today. And in the WSBK, the Aprilia is not killing it in Monza as might have been expected, but instead we have the BMWs filling up the leader board.

Should be a good weekend...

FP3 just finished, Dani on top with Casey right behind followed by Jorge, Crutchlow, Dovi, Bautista, Vale, Spies, Nicky and Bradl rounding out the top 10.

Looks like it will be an interesting quali yet again.

All I've got is the WTCC and a bit of Formula Renault. Sad

yeah get well soon Colin!
very unlucky Sad
atleast he missed a boring race... he'll be back next race Wink

loving moto3 though, i worried the awesomeness of the 125cc might not carry, but i think it's probably better than ever now!

motogp got a bit tense after t1, but that was about it... definitely missing a few of the more entertaining riders up the front :\

Indeed the MotoGP race was not all that exciting. It did look like Lorenzo might take the fight to Stoner there for a while, but it was not to be.

Even the Moto2 race was less exciting than what we have gotten used to, but I suppose the 7 leader changes in the last lap still made it exciting.

Over in Monza things got really bad. The first race was cancelled due to extremely heavy rain. Then the second race was at first delayed, and when it finally got under way, it got red flagged half way through because of the rain. Really happy for Sykes though!

How things change, Formula 1 and MotoGP seem to have reversed in terms of excitement on track with passing.

Although nothing really happened in the MotoGP race, I still watch in awe as these (crazy) guys on rockets blast around the circuit. How was Ivan Silva's save in qualifying? Bloody hell!

Moto2 final lap was epic, and some of the best defensive riding I've seen in a while from Marquez.

Shame about Fenati in Moto3, unfortunately the cameras didn't really catch either of the incidents but by the descriptions of him being angry afterwards sounded like Rossi (Louis) took him out?

The Ben said he was too confident in the new set-up and was blowing turns.

I've now heard it all.

The WSBK Monza thing was a mess.
