進化し続ける走り

[GP spectator] – 04/02 18:53

アルゼンチンでは自己ベストを更新する7位
入賞を果たした中上選手。
注目すべきは彼の苦手とするアルゼンチンの
コースでの成績ということ。
彼はMOTO2時代からこういう路面のグリップが
低く、滑りやすいコースが苦手で
それがモルビデリとの決定的な差であることは
多分、2年前、彼がMOTO2で走っている頃に
当ブログでも書いていると思います。
しかし、今回のレースは見事にその弱点を
克服したことを証明する結果となりましたね。
つまり、MOTOGPに上がって2年目
彼は彼自身の走りを更に進化させ続けているということだと
思います。
今、MOTO2で走れば彼はタイトル争いに
十分絡んでいけると思いますね。
特に目を引くのは体の使い方が上手くなった。
より機敏にマシンにしっかり荷重をかけて
タイヤのグリップを引き出せるようになった
印象があります。
2019年型中上の走りこれからも注目です。

タイヤのケアが大事

[GP spectator] – 03/31 20:47

アルゼンチンの舗装は極めてグリップが
低く、きちんとタイムを出すにはソフトリヤを
履かざるを得ない状況のようですね。
となると、このソフトリヤをいかに持たせるかが
重要なポイントになってきそうです。
となると、通称スプーンというタイヤの
冷却デバイスを付けているドゥカティの
ドヴィVS人間の技でタイヤを持たせるマルク&ビニャーレス
という構図になりそう。
ヤマハはとにかくビニャーレスかロッシか
決勝のタイヤの使い方がキモになってきそうですね。
ダークホースはクワッタハッホ。

光明は見えたか?

[GP spectator] – 04/01 21:22

アルゼンチンGPでは久々に
強いロッシが見られましたね。
リヤにミディアムを履いた彼は
動力性能に勝るドゥカティのドヴィジオーゾ相手に
彼の最大の武器であるブレーキングと
ヤマハのマシンの武器であるハンドリングの良さで対抗。
最終的にはドヴィジオーゾを突き放すことに成功。
去年のドイツGP以来となる2位表彰台に立ちました。
今回のポイントはリヤのミディアムコンパウンドが
レース終盤まで競争力を保っていたこと。
ヤマハの課題であった、リヤタイヤのグリップダウンが
今回は起きなかったようだ。
それとミディアムを履きながら、ソフトリヤの
ドゥカティに匹敵するスピードを発揮していたこと。
今回は勝てなかったけど、着実にいいレベルに
マシンが来つつあることは実感できる結果でしたね。
これは今シーズンの今後に期待。

Loris Baz Interview: Ten Kate And Yamaha The Right Package For Podiums

[MotoMatters.com | Kropotkin Thinks – … that rule books leave loopholes] – 04/03 05:16

It has been a long winter of waiting for Loris Baz. For a long time, it looked like the Frenchman would not have a full time ride for 2019, but on Tuesday, at the press conference presenting the Dutch round of WorldSBK at Assen, the Ten Kate squad announced they would be making a return to World Superbikes, racing a Yamaha R1, with Loris Baz at the helm.
Baz had been in contact with the Ten Kate squad for a while, and had decided to wait for the team to take shape. He had spent his time training hard, often riding in the snow, as well as occasionally helping other teams where the needed it.
“Already at the end of last season we took the decision, my manager and the guys around me, to only race if we could have a package to be fighting at the front,” Baz said. “I didn’t want to have another season like year but we couldn’t find anything in WorldSBK so we looked in MotoAmerica, in BSB and other places.”
The discussions with Ten Kate team managers Ronald ten Kate and Kervin Bos had persuaded Baz that it would be worth waiting. “When we started to talk to Ronald and Kervin it made us think that we should wait and see if anything can happen with them. We were told by Ten Kate that if ……


Ten Kate To Return To WorldSBK With Yamaha And Loris Baz At Jerez

[MotoMatters.com | Kropotkin Thinks – … that rule books leave loopholes] – 04/02 23:51

Ten Kate Racing will be making a return to the WorldSBK paddock. At either Imola or Jerez, the Dutch squad will be racing a Yamaha YZF-R1 with Loris Baz. With still some testing and development left to do, racing at Imola in early May is a tough challenge, but Ten Kate will definitely be racing at the Jerez round of WorldSBK to be held from 7th – 9th of June.
The switch to Yamaha is a dramatic break with the past for Ten Kate. The team grew out of a Honda dealership in Nieuwleusen, 45km south of Assen, and went on to win multiple championships in both the World Supersport and World Superbike categories. But on 30th October last year, Ten Kate were told at a meeting in Amsterdam that Honda would not be continuing with the team, but had chosen to partner with Althea and Moriwaki instead.
That decision had enormous consequences. Ten Kate was already developing engines ready for 2019, had ordered parts and supplies for the following season, and had signed a second rider alongside Leon Camier. Coming too late for Ten Kate to seek alternatives, the decision forced the race team into bankruptcy, and caused them to completely reevaluate their plans. After speaking to multiple other manuf……
