John Surtees Dead

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of MV legend John Surtees;


his family announced that he had succumbed to an existing respiratory condition.


He was 83.


Rest in Peace...

Why should Vale have won? He only won two races (the same as Cal), not a lot for a man who "was fastest last year on the Michelins", and also made two unforced errors in Austin & Assen.


Agreed,...

I would suggest that it was fifty-fifty; Jules wasn't happy with the inability of the team to solve a problem that kept rearing its head again & again- he can't win on a bike full of neutrals.

I have to defend Jonathan, I'm afraid; he tried to win the race fair & square, and was coming from a long way back; by doing so, he would have ensured that Sykes was runner-up (assuming he stayed...

Don't quite understand the bit about Jules' "bad performance" - who else has won on an F3 in the last three seasons?
If he is going (and I suspect he is), it is because of machine performance; how...

He could lap us both with his left arm tied behind his back- what sort of dicks does that make us then?????

Apparently the data showed that he got on the throttle 30cm (12 inches) earlier than usual- that's how fine the tolerances are at that level!

Don't think that makes him a dick.

A different point entirely- your initial idea that Jorge threw it up the road to hand Marc the crown is laughable; he could have simply sat out the rest of the meeting after his aerobatics in FP3.

Yeah, right!!!! The ONE THING he wants between now & the end of this season is to finish above Rossi in the championship! And he decided to throw those twenty points away!

Certainly do, Dons- it was Aragon in '14, I believe.

For Sale- F4 1000 AGO (UK/IRELAND)

Hi folks;

I have decided, after eight years, that it's time to let my gorgeous AGO go. Over the last few years, I have found myself using her less & less (as the MOT certificates show). I've...

You are right, of course, Donsy.

I should have known better than to rise to the bait.

It's obvious that events over the last few months have split opinion, but that's no excuse.


Apologies...
