Alot of top seats filled. Have to see how the 250cc championship turns before judging the riders.

Not sure were DePuniet, Elias, Gunitoli, de Angelis, Capirossi, or West are going to race. I think West will be back in WSS/WSBK. Capirossi is going to reitre (finally), DePuniet will crash out. Elias should be on the other factory Honda with Pedro. The others haven't showed enough to warrant a ride.
How does a question mark ride? It doesn't seem to have legs so shifting appears to be a likely problem. Also, are these question marks related? If so, 2009 will have the most relatives on the grid at one time. Well except when the KR team showed up last season with a fleet of 1975 Yamaha TZ750s and Junior and Kurtis had a grand old time chasing each other around. Also, do you foresee any problems with all the question marks choosing the pound sign as their number? Could they perhaps run as #a, #b, #c and so on?

Just 'cos you Mercans have challenged keyboards does not make the "#" sign a "pound sign".

In the real world a pound sign looks like this: "" and is worth approximately twice this: "$", despite the fact that the UK economy is also in the shit [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

It would sound rather funny had I said 'Do you foresee any problems with all the question marks choosing the number sign as their number?'

I'm well aware of the GBP sign (I don't have that key, I've looked tirelessly and cannot find the shortcut (Goddamn American keyboard)) and its conversion rate. I lived there for a short time, having your checking account halved will do wonders for your self-esteem. I'm excited to get back and start earning those GBPs (Goddamn American keyboard).

I believe it's called a "hash" sign, so there may be more problems for the question marks riding than you a first thought. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/drag.gif[/img]

Told you the Mercan keyboard was challenged!

Good luck with getting back over here and earning the s - hope the conversion rate compensates for the shite weather. I live in Australia when not working here and the to Au$ conversion rate is just about good enough to justify spending time here in the drizzle. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img]

Hash sign you say... I might have a plethora of new favorite riders next season.

Thanks, I actually quite enjoy the weather. It will be quite nice when I return back to the states in two to three years to find by checking account doubled.
