CATALUNYA GP 2018

This venue has produced some great battles, what awaits us this year?



Not a battle for lead, but apropos to the latest news, the following vids are battles between the Repsol riders.

2013



2014



2017





2018...stay tuned

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

I think all eyes will be on Lorenzo with good reason of course. I don't know if he can repeat Mugello or not, but we'll find out if the tank extension really made that much of a difference to how he can handle the bike.

MM will be somewhere riding for points now after the Mugello crash as he is going to be keen to build up that points lead.

Don't know what to think of the Yamaha's and whether or not they will turn a big corner here with their upgrade package.

Dovi will probably be in the mix as well.

I think we can expect crashes due to the shitty tires. Just a matter of who crashes.

To be candid, I always like to take a punt at trying to predict the outcome, but recently the tires are all over the shop and make it even harder. Having said that, JPS did a good summary so I will go for-
Dovi
Marc
vale
horhay
ianonne

Top 6 for Rossi and J Lo.
Marquez probably winning.
Zarco qualifies on the front row again.

Vinales skips the race and goes fishing because he can’t figure out fuckall about the bike.

Maybe he can start punching the tank again.

So it'll be a lottery.

High grip tracks seem to favour the Yamaha, but then Yamaha finished behind Ducati and Honda at Le Mans, which was recently resurfaced and is one of Yamaha's strongest tracks. It's so hard to predict races this season.

Quick google search says January, finished in February.

Unsurprisingly, F1 not happy and see it as a waste of money but fuck 'em.

The only thing F1 is good for us introducing ripples and bumps on decent tracks with their retarded downforce.

Fuck em indeed.
