    Well so far it seems like one of the most entertaining tracks this year.

    The commentators can barely keep up.
    Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"

    What an exciting last couple of laps.

    Good chance for Marc to have the championship wrapped up in Japan now.

    Good race and great seeing all three podium place getters happy to be there. Marquez and Dovi saluting the result by banging Champagne
    bottles was great to see.

    I love that Marc and Dovi fight tooth and nail on the track and then laugh and joke with each other off it. It's refreshing.

    Also refreshing to hear a crowd showing their appreciation for the show that was just put on rather than blindly booing riders. Even at Phillip Island the last couple years there's been Aussie fans cheering when Marquez crashed and booing him when he won. I was embarrassed to be near them.

    Being a dick is not confined by borders.

    I was at Sepang a couple of years ago and saw a Miller fan ( from PSB ) that did the same thing.

    Slag.

    I found that was mostly due to the low speed corners coming off the big straights - where Moto3 used each other as guard rails to make it around the corners after coming in too hot, or bringing each other down.
    Moto2 had a little more of a handle on it.
    The main race was a bit 'meh' - they tend to know how to go around corners better.

    I think the excitement may pass as they get used to the layout.

    I must admit I was at P.I about 10 years ago and gave a little cheer when lorenzo went down at turn 1. That was because he was a right dick back then, I have much more respect for him these days.

    Also misano has been on my mind for a while. If a track gets dropped off the calendar it should be it. For some reason it usually becomes a boring series of parade laps , not great racing

    Will never happen while Rossi is racing... or probably even while he is still involved in racing in some way.

    I can’t find the 2018 Isle of Man thread, so this thread will have to do:

    This is taken from the twitters:
    "So lorenzo99 telling us @btsportmotogp that a new scan on his radius shows a “complete” fracture. Will give it a go in FP1, but admits he risks more damage by doing that. Foot not a worry."

    Not sure what to make of it but noone is talking about his riding anymore.
    Ninety nine percent of the people in this world are fools. The rest of us are in great danger of contagion.
