Could be a half-interesting race with more than a Rossi/Stoner battle at the front as no-one has track knowledge/race experience here...

Looking forward to it. But I have a feeling the track is going to be pants. Hope I'm wrong though! Maybe we'll luck out and get a good race...

hey there JH, I see you've gone native with the "pants" wording...funny...

on another topic, today I saw the comments from Hayden about his situation with Honda...feel bad for him with the situation he describes in the Autosport blurb. He is not the sort of guy to moan about stuff or do the drama queen route, so I took this at face value.
Yes he has not come to grips with this bike and I imagine they figure he is leaving them one or another so they have shut the door on him so to speak, too bad.

obviously would love to see him on a bike that could allow him to show his talent.

I as well dont think the layout at Indy will be that exciting, but who knows...cheers all

I think you might be watching a Spies Rossi battle. He had a little left, and his times on race tires are as good as Rossi. MIght be a huge suprise for everyone. He was a second a lap quicker than the Suzuki regulars, there must be some angst in Japan that they didn't sign him, he wanted Suzuki as his first choice, but they would pay him squat, and he's leaving.

The winner will be the best swimmer. Pouring down rain in buckets. I wonder if they will really run the race?

Rossi wins from Hayden. Race red-flagged 7 laps from the end as the wind got worse, which lead to real confusion as to whether there it was a result, or if a restart would be needed. The riders felt it wasn't safe and the result stood (I'd like to believe that those 2 facts are related).

Is the 250cc race going ahead, and are the BBC streaming it online?
