WSS300の今回エントリーが
発表されています。
総勢 43台という今年も大盛況ですが
半数以上はカワサキユーザーいう
去年に引き続きの人気ぶり。
カワサキワークス入りしたアナ・カラスコを
筆頭に、ファビアン・フォレをコーチに迎えた
パーキンゴー・カワサキなど今年も有力。
そしてカワサキ・プセッティにはケナンの親戚筋に
あたるバハティン・ソフォーグルが加入します。
これまでもプセッティはトルコ政府から莫大な
資金的なバックアップを受けており
今後も両者の関係は続くことになりそうですね。
既にトルコのスポーツ上院議員となっている
ケナンですが、母国から自分に次ぐ世界王者を
生み出すことは出来るのか?

ただ乗るだけでなく

[GP spectator] – 01/08 18:54

多くのシートを失ったライダーが
MOTOeなり、世界耐久なり、BSBなりへと
シートを求める中、未だにシートが決まってないので
ロリス・バズです。
本人いわく、あくまでもスタート地点に立つために
走るというのなら、意味がない、タイトルを
取る体制が整っているチームでないと走らない
ということで、未だにあちこちのチームと交渉中。
最終的にはスペイン、フランス、イギリスのどれかの
スーパーバイクで走ることになりそうです。
まあ、それもひとつの考え方。

ペドロサの離脱

[GP spectator] – 01/10 21:03

KTMにとってはこれ以上ない
痛手となってしまいましたね。
ダニ・ペドロサが鎖骨の疲労骨折により
手術を受けるということで、長期離脱、
当面のテストライドは出来ないことを発表しました。
とにかく資金はあるKTMですから、次から次へと
新しいフレーム、パーツは出来上がってくるのに
テストをが出来ない。
実際、12月の18、19日に予告されていたMOTOGPテストは
実施されず、何故実施されなかったのかの説明も無かった
わけですが、どうやらそういう事情が絡んでいたのか。
とにかく、セパンに向けてテストをしたいパーツが大量に
あるのに、テストが出来ないというKTM。
カリオの回復状況も詳しく伝わってきません。
スタート前からいきなり、躓いちゃいましたねー。

Exactly What Does Ducati’s Torque Arm Do?

[MotoMatters.com | Kropotkin Thinks – … that old ideas can get a new lease of life when things change] – 01/12 06:13

The forces in play with Ducati's torque arm
Ducati has always been known for taking the path less traveled when it comes to their MotoGP bikes. Their willingness to experiment and innovate – and sometimes, pick up old solutions which were dropped in the past – has been put into overdrive since Gigi Dall’Igna took over as head of Ducati Corse, the Bologna factory's racing department.
The appearance of a torque arm on the Ducati GP19s at the Jerez test in November last year is another example of exactly this kind of thinking from Dall'Igna. An idea which was once common practice in racing motorcycles in the 1970s and early 1980s, but disappeared shortly afterward. Why had Ducati reinstated the idea again? What were they trying to achieve?


Guest Blog: Mat Oxley – MotoGP 2019’s biggest battle: Ducati v Honda

The first in a series examining how each of MotoGP’s six factories is aiming to gain the advantage going into the 2019 championship
The last two seasons have been all about Ducati and Honda. Those two manufacturers have won all but five of the last 36 races, and the battle for the 2019 MotoGP title will most likely see the duel continue.
Last year the Desmosedici and RC213V were more closely matched than ever, so what are the engineers in Bologna, Italy, and Asaka, Japan, working to improve for their 2019 contest? We spoke to Andrea Dovizioso and Ducati Corse manager Gigi Dall’Igna from Ducati, and Marc Márquez and HRC director Tetsuhiro Kuwata from Honda to find out.


Four Predictions For 2019: The Most Competitive Field Yet Means More Winners, More Intra-team Tension, And Thoughts Of Withdrawal

[MotoMatters.com | Kropotkin Thinks – … that old ideas can get a new lease of life when things change] – 01/04 09:02

You would think that after writing about what I got wrong in my predictions last year, I would not be so foolish as to try to make predictions again for the 2019 season. As it turns out, I am that foolish, so here is a list of things I expect to happen in the coming year.
2019 certainly looks very promising for world championship motorcycle racing, in just about every class in both MotoGP and WorldSBK. A range of changes mean the racing should be closer and more competitive. Cutting the MotoGP grid from 24 to 22 bikes, and having the Petronas Yamaha team replace the underfunded Aspar squad, means there are more competitive bikes on the grid.
Ducati will field only GP19s and GP18s, and the GP18 is a much better machine than the GP17. Honda will field three 2019 RC213Vs, and a 2018 bike for Takaaki Nakagami, and the fact that Nakagami was fastest at the Jerez MotoGP test last November suggests that it, too, is good enough to run at the front. Yamaha, likewise, will field three factory-spec bikes, with only rookie Fabio Quartararo on a 2018-spec machine. Suzuki made big steps forward in 2018, and have a more powerful bike for 2019.
It’s not just in MotoGP either. In Moto2, the new T……
