MotoGP World Championship

(1/2) > >>

So who is following this championship? What teams? Thoughts on this season so far?

Well no prizes for guessing I follow Ducatti's Casey Stoner of Australia. Stoner is a Former World Champion (2007) and currently tied for the lead with 6x and current reigning World Champion, Valentino Rossi of Italy and 2008's Rookie of the Year, Jorge Lorenzo of Spain. they all sit on 106 points, 37 points clear of 4th place. This year is a close one.

Last weekend in Catalunya (round 6 of 17) they finished 1st - Rossi, 2nd - Lorenzo, 3rd - Stoner.

Next Race:- Assen, Netherlands next weekend 27th June. Can't wait for that one!


And guess how they finished in Assen...

1.   V. ROSSI   ITA   Fiat Yamaha Team   42'14.611
2.   J. LORENZO   SPA   Fiat Yamaha Team    + 5.368
3.   C. STONER   AUS   Ducati Marlboro Team    + 23.113

So now it's onto the USA with Laguna Seca this weekend....bring it on!!!

And results from USA's Leguna Seca :

1   D. PEDROSA   SPA   Repsol Honda Team   44'01.580
2   V. ROSSI   ITA   Fiat Yamaha Team    + 0.344
3   J. LORENZO   SPA   Fiat Yamaha Team    + 1.926
4   C. STONER   AUS   Ducati Team    + 12.432

And the championship standings after 8 races are now:

1   Valentino ROSSI   ITA   Fiat Yamaha Team   151
2   Jorge LORENZO   SPA   Fiat Yamaha Team   142
3   Casey STONER   AUS   Ducati Team   135
4   Dani PEDROSA   SPA   Repsol Honda Team   92

Turning into an interesting season. Looking forward to the next race in Germany at the Sachsenring this weekend. Come on Casey!!!!!

No TV, so hard to follow the GP here :P
But I've seen a race or two, at friends, and some (great! ^^) video summaries on youtube :)

Those guys are all extraterrestrials xD

Managed to catch a bit of the 250cc this weekend, it was great. They stopped the race because of rain, and before the restart some riders changed from slicks to wets about 3 times because the rain kept coming and going. It was pretty funny to watch.

Not so funny for Stoner though, the BBC coverage said he came 4th because of tire problems. Am I right Tod? Plus, who won the 250cc? xD
