Off Topic / Sachsenring to alter turn 11 for 2014
March 06, 2014, 10:48:03 PM
The venue of the eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland, the Sachsenring, will be altered for this year's ninth round of the MotoGP™ World Championship.


Turn 11, the first right hand corner after several left hand turns has been a tricky section of track for riders in the past - so a new corner layout will be introduced to improve safety.

For the 2014 eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland Turn 11 will be altered by mobile curbs made of steel, relocating the racing line and reducing corner speed.

MotoGP™ Safety Officer Loris Capirossi and FIM Safety Officer Franco Uncini visited the circuit and approved the updates to the layout this week.

Three-time World Champion Capirossi rode the new racing line on a BMW S 1000 RR to test the solution. The new curbs will be made of steel and will be a mobile alteration due to other events which take place at the same venue during the season.

The 2014 Grand Prix at the Sachsenring will take place from 11th to 13th July 2014.

Off Topic / PBM announces Broc Parkes for 2014
December 12, 2013, 01:01:16 PM
Paul Bird Motorsport has announced that it will be contesting the MotoGP™ World Championship with Michael Laverty in 2014 on Aprilia machinery, with the Ulsterman joined by Australian Broc Parkes.

Laverty will continue for a second year in MotoGP™ where he will be joined by Parkes on-board the team's PBM Aprilias.

Laverty ended his debut season in the MotoGP™ World Championship in 25th overall with a best result of 13th at Jerez. Parkes, meanwhile, is a former runner-up in the World Supersport Championship and raced a Kawasaki for the PBM team in World Superbikes in 2009.

Michael Laverty

"We learned so much in year one that I'm delighted Paul has continued his involvement with MotoGP™ and that he's given me the opportunity to continue with the project. Everyone has told me that year two is much easier so the aim is to put into place what we have learned and to raise our game accordingly. The class is going to be a lot tougher with the new production bikes but our aim is to consistently score points."

Broc Parkes

"Firstly, I'd like to say a massive thanks to Paul Bird for the opportunity to work with his team once again; I'm really looking forward to it. This is the premier class and it's every rider's dream to race in MotoGP™. I know this is going to be a tough season but I'm certainly up for the challenge, I can't wait to get started."

Paul Bird, Team Owner

"We've done a lot of spade work in MotoGP™ over the past two seasons so the plan is to build on that and work with our partners and Michael and Broc are very capable of delivering!"

Off Topic / New role for Puig within HRC
December 05, 2013, 10:38:02 AM
Former Grand Prix winner Alberto Puig, who has been working with Honda Racing Corporation since 2006 as Dani Pedrosa's advisor, will face a new challenge starting from 2014.

Puig will undertake a new role as a supervisor for several of HRC's activities, including the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup and recruitment and management of young riders.

Due to his new role, Puig will not work as closely with Pedrosa during race weekends where he has been a regular figure alongside the Spanish rider, who he has tracked since the very beginning of his career. Apart from this change to Puig's role, Pedrosa's team will remain same as in 2013.

Shuhei Nakamoto, HRC Executive Vice President, commented, "We are very happy to increase Alberto's role in HRC and make use of his extensive knowledge in this world. He is a valuable asset to Honda Racing and we must utilise him and benefit from his wealth of experience. He is a respected member of the MotoGP™ paddock and I believe this will be a good new challenge for him."

Puig himself added, "This is an exciting new challenge for me with HRC and I am very grateful for the opportunity. Initially I will focus on the new Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup but then as my role grows I will assist with young riders and I will do my best to help HRC as much as possible. Regarding Dani, I hope he can fulfil his dream, and looking back over these years I can only be proud of what is left behind with all the titles in the 125 and 250 class and all the MotoGP™ victories."

Pedrosa, meanwhile, stated, "After many years working together on track with Alberto, next season he will not be by my side in the garage. He will be taking care of new projects and I feel that he has already given me so much that now it is time to change our relationship slightly. Anyway, I know that Alberto will be there for me if I need something, and this is the most important thing."

Off Topic / CEV Repsol 2013 Champions
November 25, 2013, 08:40:16 AM
On a cold but sunny final day of the season at the Jerez circuit, nearly 18,000 fans celebrated along with teams and riders the victories of the newly proclaimed CEV Repsol 2013 Champions in each of the categories.

Fabio Quartararo (FRA-FTR) rode a spectacular race to take a third straight win and his first CEV Repsol Championship title in Moto3™. Rivals Marcos Ramírez (SPA-KTM), Adrian Martín (SPA-Kalex-KTM) and Hafiq Azmi (MAL-KTM) followed in his tracks and fought an intense battle lap after lap for leadership of the group. With one lap to go, Martín attacked and just when it seemed that he would cross the line in second position, Ramirez fought back to steal the 20 points a few meters from the end. María Herrera (SPA-KTM), firm favourite for the title, started out leading the race until the third lap when she crashed out. The second surprise of the day was the withdrawal of another candidate for the title, Alejandro Medina (SPA-KTM). The Team Calvo rider was forced into the pits on lap nine due to problems with his gearshift.

In Moto2™, winner Alex Mariñelarena (SPA-Kalex) put in an overwhelming performance. Right from the starting lights the Targobank rider pulled clear to ride alone right to the finish line. Hafizh Syahrin (MAL-Kalex) took second position and along with Mariñalerena is now bound for the world championship. In third spot on the podium and for the first time this season was Sebastián Porto (ARG-Kalex). Román Ramos (SPA-Ariane) crossed the finish line in fifth position to become CEV Repsol Moto2 Champion. Ramos, leader of the overall standings by 20 points, lapped steadily, avoiding risks that could jeopardize his title hopes.

There was a clash of the titans between Carmelo Morales (SPA-Kawasaki) and Iván Silva (SPA-BMW Motorrad) in both the Stock Extreme races scheduled today. In the morning race, after continuous changes in position, risky overtaking and even a touch during the first laps ―which cost Silva a position― Morales rode home alone to his second victory of the season. Runner-up was Xavier Forés (SPA-Ducati). Kenny Noyes (USA-Suzuki) added 16 points to his total after the Silva's sanction.

The second race of Stock Extreme started with everyone keeping one eye on the calculator. After a first lap dominated by Forés, Silva and Morales took the leading role until the Team Calvo rider went down on lap 14. With his rival out of action, Silva lapped comfortably in first place. Behind, oblivious to the struggle of the leaders, Xavi Forés crossed the finish line in fourth place as CEV Repsol Stock Extreme Champion. Third place went to Kenny Noyes, who this time participated in the podium ceremony.

With the Champions crowned, the finishing touch of the 2013 CEV Repsol season was provided by Repsol riders Marc Márquez and Dani Pedrosa. The world champion and third-place finisher in the 2013 MotoGP™ came to Jerez to support the younger riders and the coming talents of the championship.

CEV Repsol action returns to Jerez on 6 April, with the start of the new 2014 season of the FIM CEV Repsol International Championship 2014.

Off Topic / Yamaha R25 concept
November 20, 2013, 04:01:41 PM
The headline bike from Yamaha is the R25 which the firm is presenting as a concept but considering the parallel-twin 249cc four-stroke has been linked to Valentino Rossi the firm is clearly taking it seriously.

Yamaha has done well in the entry-level sportsbike market with the YZF-R125 model but this two-cylinder model will take the fight to the Honda CBR300R and the Kawasaki Ninja 300 along with the new KTM RC390 in terms of styling and performance.

Yamaha says of the R25: "The R25 was designed to be the superbike you ride every day and its newly developed 249cm two-cylinder engine offers plenty of power. R25 is a serious cornering machine, and is great for the motorcycle aficionado or even the daily commute."

Off Topic / Marc Marquez: MotoGP™ World Champion
November 10, 2013, 04:49:28 PM
Marc Marquez is the youngest ever rider to clinch the premier class world title in MotoGP™. Thanks to a truly amazing debut season, the 20-year-old from Cervera, Spain also becomes the first rookie premier class World Champion for 35 years.

Marquez's debut World Championship campaign in 2008 immediately served notice of his talent and he took a podium at Donington Park in his first season, despite a shortened campaign due to injury. In 2009 he scored a single podium on his way to eighth overall, before his full talent truly blossomed in 2010 as he scored an incredible ten victories from 12 pole position on his way to the 125 World Championship title. One of his most notable rides was his win from last on the grid in Estoril.

Stepping up to Moto2™ in 2011 the youngster got off to a rocky start, crashing out of the first two rounds. However, a first win in Round 4 at Le Mans laid the way for six more victories as he pushed Stefan Bradl closely for the title, until a crash in practice at Sepang ended Marquez's season prematurely. Problems with his vision as a result of that crash cut short his 2012 pre-season, but he was well on the pace in the final test at Jerez and was therefore an instant favourite for the title.

Marquez did not disappoint in 2012, as he took victory in the first Moto2™ race of the season in Qatar and made his intentions clear with some tough and controversial overtakes in the race. A first DNF after a crash at a wet Le Mans gave his rivals hope, as compatriot Pol Espargaro mounted a strong challenge, yet after a coming together of the two at their respective home race in Catalunya - where Espargaró crashed out and Marquez collected valuable points - the title race was strongly skewed in the eventual World Champion's favour.

A total of nine wins - including two which saw him fight his way through the whole pack in Japan and Valencia - and 14 podiums ultimately saw the Spaniard take his maiden Moto2™ title before moving up to the Repsol Honda Team in the MotoGP™ premier class for 2013.

Moving into 2013, Marquez joined the previous season's runner-up Dani Pedrosa. A remarkable start to the campaign saw him go head-to-head in Qatar with multiple World Champion Valentino Rossi, eventually losing out to the Italian. Despite that, Marquez's rostrum at Losail would remarkably prove to be his first of 16 across the 18-round season, with the only two blots on his copybook being a crash while running second in the closing stages at Mugello and a disqualification for failing to make a mandatory bike change in time at Phillip Island.

At the inaugural Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas, he phlegmatically achieved his maiden premier class victory from pole position at only the second event of the campaign, in the process taking records away from Freddie Spencer as the youngest ever pole-sitter and race winner in MotoGP™. In Jerez, Marquez made headlines as he collided with reigning World Champion Jorge Lorenzo to grab second place at the final corner, then pulled a memorable pass on Rossi around the outline of Laguna Seca's world-famous Corkscrew. At Silverstone, he lost out to Lorenzo in a last-lap battle that will go down in MotoGP™ folklore as the pair crossed the finish line just 81 thousandths of a second apart. They would trade paint again at Sepang, as Marquez came out on top for second position to further increase a championship lead he had retaken at July's German GP following heavy crashes for both Lorenzo and Pedrosa. At both the Sachsenring and Indianapolis, the 20-year-old enjoyed perfect scores of pole position, fastest lap and race victory.

He clinched the title in Valencia on 10th November, replacing Spencer as the youngest ever premier class title winner by finishing in third place behind Lorenzo and Pedrosa following a thrilling early-race battle as the outgoing Champion attempted to slow the pace. Marquez therefore becomes the first debutant to clinch the premier class title since Kenny Roberts won in his first season of 1978. In doing so, he also becomes the 26th premier class World Champion in the series, which dates back to 1949. He is the third Spaniard to claim the ultimate honour, after Alex Criville (1999) and Jorge Lorenzo (2010, 2012), and has won the titles of all three classes across just four years.

A few facts about Marc Marquez:

- At the age of 20 years and 266 days, Marquez is the youngest rider of all-time to win the world title in the premier class, taking the record from Freddie Spencer who was 21 years and 258 days of age when he won the 500 title in 1983, also riding a Honda

- Marquez is just the fourth rider in the 65-year history of Grand Prix racing to win world titles in three different categories, along with: Mike Hailwood, Phil Read and Valentino Rossi

- Marquez has finished in the top three 16 times in 2013 - the greatest number of podium finishes ever by a rookie in the premier class.

- He has qualified on pole position nine times in 2013 – the greatest number of pole positions ever by a rookie in the premier class

- At the second race of 2013 he became the youngest ever winner of a premier class Grand Prix race (20 years, 63 days) and the youngest rider to start from pole; Freddie Spencer had held both records since 1982.

- His points total of 334 is the greatest number of points ever achieved in a rookie season in the premier class.
