    Its a house of ideas built on the foundation of complete bullshit. Maybe the result of millions of dollars worth of research and engineering is a $38 per gallon green fuel that produces
    I hate to be the one to break it to you, but some people still do that. And I would bet the farm that horse racing and its support produces 10 times the (insert bad elements here) than anything that the awakened Dorna could ever hope to expel.

    I didn’t read the entire article but from some of the posts here, it sounds like the teams will be sourcing their own fuel?

    But even if it is a spec fuel, you’re talking about a major change that some teams will adapt well to and others won’t. I think consistency in a rules package is a major contributor to parity.

    Development of the future Moto GP fuel has been in full swing for a while now somewhere in West Virginia / Kentucky mountains!

    Are we going to see the first steam-powered mini-nuke generated MotoGP bike? Will the corner workers all be fitted with Geiger counters and lead lines whites?

    Weren't the Germans converting coal to synthetic fuel back in the 1920s and really kicked in production during WWII?

    Maybe they'll go hydrogen?

    My turkey breasts are almost done on my pellet grill. So, we can use the leftover pellets for about 2 laps I think.

    Indeed, the past seasons are prime examples of their death. They've met their maker. Flat lined they have....
