QuoteHe hasn't really ignored anything, as he's answered most if not all issues as to why he made that decision. As for being pissed off, there are now 2 high quality versions of mugello, why would you want a third? What's to be gained from that aside from dividing the community more, over which version should be run or is better?
Quote from: poumpouny on July 16, 2019, 07:29:22 amBecause i voted Mugello not for me, but for the future of GP Bikes.

Quote from: PiBoSo on December 03, 2018, 10:14:12 pmTo be honest, I strongly dislike the post-2005 Assen.In my opinion they destroyed what made the circuit special, to shorten and "normalize" the layout. All purely for monetary reasons
Quote from: Myst1cPrun3 on July 16, 2019, 11:06:57 amAssen was changed primarily for safety reasons, and to keep up to modern standards. Its important to note the changes were made PRIMARILY for car racing, and motogp/wsbk was not the priority. To high entry speeds into corners with not enough run off.As for the motogp issue, come on really, that's a ridiculous statement.Enjoy it for what it is, and that's an exciting watch, with close races and contact. More like touring car racing, and is more exciting than BSB this year to me. But that's not this topic that's the other one so yeah sos for that :/
Quote from: Hawk on July 16, 2019, 07:48:50 pmThere was enough land to upgrade the run-off areas with the old Assen circuit....
Quote from: Hawk on July 16, 2019, 07:48:50 pmBloody do gooders and selling off land for greed wins out yet again in ruining the all-time classic track layouts....
Quote from: Hawk on July 16, 2019, 07:48:50 pmIt's nearly as bad as F1 used to be many years ago until they started to see the light and banned computer controlled cars.... At least in F1 now they have it so the drivers skill drives the car without any computer controlled interference.
Quote from: Hawk on July 17, 2019, 08:08:07 amSorry mate, but if you look at the maps of the old circuit and the new layout, including the extra facilities they've built into the new circuit, you can clearly see that they had plenty of land to do the work they wanted to do without bastardizing the old classic layout.... It was sacrilege what they did to that brilliant GP track.
Quote from: Hawk on July 17, 2019, 08:08:07 amAs far as reducing speeds on circuits..... What the hell?? This is motor racing, it's supposed to be fast..... It's just the namby-pamby snowflake younger generation interfering where it's not needed..... Often talked about health & safety gone mad, well these sort of actions are typical of the reason people say that. And what about the TT races? Why aren't you all screaming we ban those if people are so concerned about speed and rider/circuit safety??
Quote from: Hawk on July 17, 2019, 08:08:07 amAs for F1, at least it's the driver now that is doing the deciding of what he wants and not a computer doing it in real-time...... There is no TC, anti-lock brakes, aided start procedures or suspension adjustments done by computers anymore in F1 like there used to be... It is very much a driver machine result now and not achieved through computer aids...... Big difference to what MotoGP currently is doing to aid the riders and their machines with electronics.
Quote from: Hawk on July 17, 2019, 08:08:07 amIf it was just one thing I'd like to see taken out of the modern MotoGP bikes it would be to end TC altogether, just so that it was the rider who was in total control of the application of the bikes power and not the computer.... That would go a very long way to bringing back a major rider skill into the sport.
Quote from: Hawk on July 18, 2019, 02:08:30 amI give up on you young ones..... Sometimes I think your a lost cause with no appreciation for what's right and wrong in sport these days???I mean where has the honor gone from a lot of sports, where has the true sporting spirit gone?
Quote from: Hawk on July 18, 2019, 02:08:30 amIt seems to me that the younger-gen are only interested in winning at any cost and be-damned with any sense of what true sport is all about.
Quote from: Hawk on July 18, 2019, 02:08:30 amIt's the same attitude with your computer gaming with a lot of youngsters these days.... So long as they win whether it's by hack or crook that's perfectly okay with them.... I just don't understand cause you surely can't get any sort of fulfillment or pride from the direction many sports have gone these days?
Quote from: Hawk on July 18, 2019, 02:08:30 amModern attitudes..... Phfff!!! PURE MADNESS!!!
