Even more so the non factory bikes, which people forget not uncommonly were lapped even without crashing.

That's funny. I hadn't thought about that; the privateers being regularly lapped, and yet - many of those guys were still highly regarded by the fans. There seems to have been a great shift in the value of fans in that there doesn't seem to be as many that root for the underdog.

Garry Mc Coy actually winning premier class GP races on a bike that was basically brought to the race week-end in the boot of a car was what was really impressive to me, making some allowance for my obvious national allegiance.

Fixed. No allegiances required. It was stand alone impressive.

I missed qp for moto2. What happened to Remy? He's last on the grid. Did he crash and not complete a lap? Was he just slow?

I'll tell you if you really want to know. But he started 18th.

But he did a great job of damage control. I think he's got "it".
