Wing Wars Heating Up

Suzuki, Yamaha and Ducati are all now sporting triple wings. And people were predicting they'd be gone.

They really need to be banned. But I guess as long as the Spanish idiots who run this series care, lets keep the loot rolling in. After all the t-shirt seller is well past his shelf life.

It is going for official NASBIKE status. Although, WSBK is giving this series a serious run for the title of most over-regulated, superfluous, confusing racing. Since they are both run by the same people, it's not surprising they are racing themselves to the bottom.

Watching the aluminum fairing form being put over the front of the KTM, was SO NASCAR it made me eat some grits and order a bottle of moonshine from Amazon.

I heard that Wing Wars was going to be the name of George Lucus' next project.

MotoGP is going to end like WSBK, better end MotoGP and give the riders all production bikes to race with. No developments allowed.

Another way winglets are affecting races: Both Iannone and Bagnaia lost one of their wings in separate first corner incidents and retired because the bikes became unrideable.
