    Fair point!

    Yep

    Oh, BTW
    Watching Q2, Smith was coming in on a HOT final lap, and Vin and 2 other fuck tards were cruising all over the racing line (entry to the final corner).
    Did they end up getting penalised?
    The commentators didn't make much fuss over it at the time (perhaps because it was 'only' Smith) - but I DO think he was baulked, and the others should have had a talking to at the very least.

    Yep, I actually had the same thought but thought it a bit contradictory and I felt like a bit of a gumby trying to decipher why one but not the other, so decided not to go there! Though it does help that I have a very healthy distaste for thugball.

    Not really, it's the Italian legal system, and just like anything Italian it's bound to be in a state of chaos.

    When Ayrton Senna died at Imola, Italian law dictated that someone had to go to jail due to a death taking place.

    Former Moto3 champion Kent dropped by Speed Up

    Kent signed a two-year deal with Speed Up starting this season, but the Briton has had a lacklustre campaign and has only scored points in two races, with a best finish of 12th, while he also retired eight times.

    In contrast to that, his teammate Fabio Quartararo won in Barcelona, and currently outscores Kent by 92 points.

    Kent has struggled to impress in Moto2 following his Moto3 title, as he was only 22nd in 2016 and a deal with Kiefer Racing was terminated two races into his 2017 campaign, which then led to him missing most of the season.

    He will be replaced by Pons, who raced in his family-run Moto2 team in the past three years, but could not do better than 14th.

    In 2018, Pons competes in the Spanish CEV Moto2 championship, and is currently third in the standings, having won the previous two races.

    The termination of Kent's deal means that Speed Up only has one rider, Jorge Navarro, signed for 2019, with Quartararo also leaving to join SIC Yamaha in MotoGP.

    I'm trying to get excited about Thailand - but Jesus it looks like a boring circuit.

    Well it's a Herman Tilke design track, so what do you expect? Builder of snorefests for F1.

    But he is also the designer of Sepang, COTA and Aragon, which provide great racing every year. It looks a little Valencia-ish, but think of it as a second Sepang, but with more ladyboys, less muslims and equal amounts of food poisoning.

    Thailand would be a good GP destination ex Perth until you realise that they built the circuit in the assend of nowhere.

    Good to see she's still racing. She left Moto3 a couple years back to go back to studying.

    Hope she gets a ride back in the Premier classes.

    The marketing opportunities for her as a rider are huge and she has proved that she can get the things around the track pretty rapidly.
    Sventek, being a predominantly lazy fuck can you please purchase some for me, bring me the stuff, create something I want after you think of it for me then clean my house, wash my car, dog, bike breathe for me.

    I don't think she's good enough to get another ride in Moto3. Her record is still very underwhelming...to put it nicely.

    Half way through the 2018 season they also changed rules so there was a minimum rider weight, which affected her a fair amount from what I've read.

    Let me guess...at the chech round? Once she wasn't 50kg lighter than her opposition she began to struggle?

    Good on her for winning it but her moto3 results show she probably won't do to well in the higher classes.
