He did reasonably well in his brief stint in the IDM superbikes when he was out of F1.

Interesting about the AMG thing though as VW/Audi bought out Ducati, must have been a remnant of their previous partnership. Plus Schuis Merc ties.

To have Mcguinness saying he couldn't keep up is impressive.
Also this surprised me.
"Take the time MotoGP star Valentino Rossi had a go in Ferrari's F1 car at Circuit de Catalunyain in 2008. He was just over two tenths down on the circuit's fastest lap time - set by Kimi Raikkonen. "
2 tenths down on the lap record. Really!? That's fucking impressive.

Ducati were planning a line of AMG bikes before they were purchased by VW/Audi it's all stopped now, they did release a Diavel just before the purchase.

I guess it goes to show that when you're quick, you're quick on anything!

Yes but you'd think that Audi would have put an end to that, especially with the 1199.

He's pretty handy peddler too. Boy's bought himself an FTR Moto2 bike. I reckon I'd be too if Rocket Ron was my personal coach :D

Keith Flint actually races in one of the european series (has his own team, traction ctrl or something) and he has won races in it.

He's no muppet when it comes to bikes.
