I don't know if anyone here has read about this but I read that some of the top riders are saying they won't go to the race in Japan for fear of radiation. After tests the officials have said it's safe and the race will go ahead, so whether the riders will back down remains to be seen. I read it on the bbc, can't find the link now so I found it here instead

I can't wait to see Stoner, Lorenzo et al squirm about their decisions if the championship is going down to the wire...

Well I read this morning that Rossi is saying he won't go to Japan now either. Seems odd all these riders are saying they won't go but no one in F1 has said a word about it being dangerous for them :confused:

I think Motegi is much closer to Fukushima than Suzuka, maybe that's the reason? Still, I think that Pedrosa got much more radiation from all the X-rays he had to take, so a short visit to Motegi should be fine, right? :eh:

Yeah, sounds like an overreaction to me.

I am not that in to MotoGP but because it is about racing, I got interested to watch in when I visited Malaysia a couple of years back. The tickets were really cheap and there was a good crowd watching. The race was just usual until one of the audience that he wanted to meet Rossi personally that he climbed the fence to stop Rossi when he passed through. Unfortunately, he caught up with security even before Rossi made his way into that part of the track.

Some people can just take hold of themselves, eh?

Some people don't know how to behave do they? He should have had a friend diverting security for him ;)

Kidding!!!

Sounds exciting for the rest of you watching though.

Ahem, this is a serious thread, you should at least try to contribute to it :noway:

I admit I don't follow the moto gp but I do read stuff about it and have a good basic idea of who is doing well and so on. For example I understand they are in Japan this weekend, the disputed race that some said they wouldn't attend and then all showed up to as far as I know :hihi:

Last week it was Dan Wheldon this week it's Marco Simoncelli, it's awful news.

Condolences to his family and friends of course at this awful time for them

Never heard of this guy as I don't follow MotoGP, but may he R.I.P and condolences to his loved ones.

This is a very bad month for motorsports. :|


Two deaths in like a week. Has somebody put a curse on racing?
