FP1.

Stoner's ankle must be feeling better....if the changes at Ducati have given them more speed, they're hiding it well so far....

FP2 MotoGP

Times are off, no aliens, CRT bikes at the top of the pile, I'm thinking the afternoon rains have been through at Sepang...

Kinda on/off topic, but has anyone heard what Stoner's plans are after this season. Is he going to some other form of racing?

I heard he might be interested in the Australian V8 Supercar racing.

Yes, that's the persistent rumour down here - lots of footage of him hanging around the championship-leading Vodafone team during the recent 1000km event at Bathurst.

There's a bit of precedent for the motorcycle-car racer crossover too - Wayne Gardner did it, and Gregg Hansford before him.

Cloudburst before Moto2 - race start delayed, then local wildcard rider is a revelation...

Red flagged, due to rain, but possibility of a re-start for a 7 lap sprint....Lorenzo tucked the front under brakes on the final corner before the flag...but saved it!! What a saga!

Yeah, those guys did a great job!!

MotoGP has been declared - track still under water - Pedrosa from Lorenzo and Stoner, Hayden 4th, Spies a nasty highside and a damaged shoulder...that boy's got no luck at all...

speed tv has pissed me off again, i stayed up with the requisite
amount of beer to watch live at 4:00 in the morning only to be treated
to last weeks repeat of the Japan race, what's wrong with those idiots?
every other race has been broadcast live, except Japan which they must have gotten lots of shit-for because they started announcing Malasia live at 4:00 am est, only to bugger that up, now i gotta try and switch between NFL and the delayed race broadcast to watch what i already now know. wa wa wa.
very cool info on the engine situation thanks for that.

Hey drivit how long did you watch it for at 4:00am? I recorded it on my PVR and it was the same for about 10 mins and then it switched over to the Malaysia race, I know I was annoyed this morning as well until I fast forwarded through and found the right race.


Also, I don't know about spies, he's a good rider and he shows it from time to time, but when is the last time he hasn't crashed? He's got a good factory bike and yet it seems as he pushes his limit or looses focus in the race.

with stuff from the week before.
will try catching it on a replay and wait for phillip island.
was at indy when Ben's engine failed, just unlucky
thats racing.
