    Don't normally get Moto GP news on my iPhone, but this was on "The Drive" today"

    MotoGP: Lucky Marc Marquez Wins in France as Zarco, Dovizioso Falter
    The Drive

    All it took the Spaniard was patience and a whole lot of tire management to emerge victorious in France. Read the full story

    So pissed off. Either Comcast or BeIn TV dropped the ball and the DVR did not record the races. Read the results anyways. I’ll catch the replays.

    Allyance, there's a racing "spoilers" thread over here...http://vfrworld.com/threads/racing-talk-with-spoilers.53507/page-7#post-585789
    This thread was more or less just shooting the $#it about racing in general without any spoilers...

    three on the trot for the kid, 36 points clear, and now tied for 5th on the all time win list with Stoner....only one's in front, Agostini, Rossi, Doohan, and Horhay. Complete demolition job....what made the racing so close last year was the performance level of the RC, now the bike is fixed and it looks like a big ass whippin' is coming.

    The commentators were sayin that MM has a 40% win rate and a 70% podium finish rate right now. If things go the way they are now, he may top JL’s 44 premier class wins before the end of the season.

    Lithium battery fires can be intense.

    It'd be ironic if a Samsung S7 started the fire

    Even more funny if it was a hover board fire. Burned up all the time.

    I believe I wrote something about McGuiness early this year, which didn't appear well recieved, LOL. So far, I'm on point, just in case the fanboys are keeping track...:Pop2:

    I wonder if Dunlop’s lap record will go down this year.

    It's Robert Dunlop out, I couldn't work out where Micheal had been injured, he did crash but no injuries

    Last day of the NW200, highlights from Superbike race





    Glenn Irwin won the Superbike races on the Be Wiser Ducati and it was only Michael Dunlop who could cut back the massive lead he had ... Irwin won both Superbike races

    Having somebody have the fracture in their leg break again is no laughing matter

    When you have competed on the IOM and won, you have an opinion, until then you're just some nobody with a bad attitude
