Your World Champions!

2016, what a season it’s been for motorcycle racing. At home here in South Africa we have had one of the best seasons in the National Championship. It is great to see how things are advancing, even having a live feed for the final round of the season. On top of that, our South African…

SuperGP Champions Weekend.

The 2016 SuperGP has come and gone. This weekend saw the final round take place at Red Star Raceway in Delmas. I had planned to get down to the racing, how could I not? It was after all the final round of the season and the weekend the champions would be crowned. In the end…

The best there is!

MotoGP. If I haven’t said it before, I will say it right now. MotoGP is the best sport on television, hands down! The last five weeks have seen four race weekends go by in the MotoGP championship, and boy, oh boy what amazing racing we have witnessed. Not only have we seen the first win…

What, Where, When?

I don’t know about everyone else but I for one have felt the frustration of the summer break for the MotoGP and WorldSBK championships. It’s already tough enough just waiting it out between races, never-mind a few week break with no racing to look forward to after a long week at work. It hasn’t been…

Super Men, SuperGP

There was another first for me as I made my way back to Redstar Raceway this past weekend, this time to catch the SuperGP national championship races and I was truly impressed with what I saw. A few weeks back I caught some of the action when highlights of the previous races were broadcast on…

Consistency is 93

I read a headline the other day that asked if Rossi’s title challenge was over. I chose to ignore it at the time as I felt I needed to see what happened at this weekend’s German round at the Sachsenring before I could make a judgement. I felt that if Rossi could pull off a…

The Local “Seen”

Don’t ask me what took so long because the answer is, I have no idea? This past week I stumbled across our National Motorcycle Championship. I was scrolling through channels on TV and found the highlights on Ignition TV, so I thought I would give it a watch and see what I was missing. I…

It’s Miller time!

Another MotoGP weekend, another feast of entertaining racing! This is why I love MotoGP so much. You never know what can happen and this weekends race at Assen, the first to be hosted on a Sunday at the circuit since it’s inception, showed just that. It’s the half way point of the season, 9 races…

WorldSBK, just not that exciting, but why?

Lately I have written mostly on the build up to races and the events that have unfolded at the races. However this will not be one of those posts as I want to get in to a topic that may take more than just one post to figure out and frankly it may not be…

Isle of ‘Mad Man’ 2016

The Isle of Man called for late evenings and early mornings in order to catch the featured races that infact were highlights. It’s unfortunate really that we have to watch the races like this. Watching live coverage would be amazing. I feel like more should be invested in getting live coverage of these races because…

Circuit de Rossilunya.

It’s been an emotional and tough build up to race day in Barcelona. With the death of one of the championships favourite sons, Luis Salom, on Friday during a Moto2 Free Practise. Due to this the track had been revised to the F1 layout to make the track safer to ride. A moment of remembrance…

#Mexicano39

MotoGP heads to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya this weekend and with a Spanish 1, 2 in Italy, after Rossi was forced to retire due to engine problems, it’s sure to be an interesting weekend with the Italians more than likely seeking a “revenge victory” on Spanish soil. This weekends race also comes after the news…
