Round 6 |MotoAmerica Superbikes at New Jersey | SEP 11-13

Discussion in 'General' started by RossK6, Sep 9, 2020.

  1. It’s there for a reason and a reason all major pro level races have it. It’s one of the few fines I actually agree with.
     
  2. Roger has just checked out on him, all day there was a lot of silence from Rog. Roger is doing a great job and gets better every weekend, his interview skills are improving as well.
     
  3. Makes me wonder why he doesn’t just raise enough sponsor money to buy a ride. I admire what he is doing but unless he gets about another 50-100% boost in sponsor money he will continue to struggle wearing so many hats. There are only so many hours in a day and he cannot truly focus on the task at hand doing so many other things.

    I'm late to the party, but I watched some of yesterday's stuff last night, and g floyd, talking to Roger about boxing, was cringe worthy. Roger told him he would love to knock him out. You can tell roger was like wtf is this dude saying.

    They have to do better....

  5. Supersport grid is dismally small.

  6. Moto GP, WSBK, BSB, etc all have same rule and all impose fines/ discipline.

    RRP Kinda Superbikey

    This is my guess also. I’d like to see MA put the new woman in the booth with Roger. She obviously knows Motorsports in general and is learning the teams and motorcycle road racing quickly.

    Robbie Floyd has become a badly scratched skipping record/no trick pony.

    Getting sad. Motoamerica sure was quick on the ducati in stk1000 to make changes, but dam they must be in bed with yamaha.

    They screwed with the Suzuki team with the all the sudden tire change, and they have YET to do anything about the yamaha just murdering everyone.

    It's getting to be the worse class of racing.

    CamBeau finally did it....NJMP opened in 2008 and I remember Mladin cracked the 1:20 mark during qualifying or AM practice back in 2009 (I think it was a 120.9), and since then no one has ever been able to break into the teens on 2-wheels. Not really surprising considering how he's been obliterating the field this year.

    Makes you really have to respect what Aussie Dave does as he does all that, and provides support rides for other and build his own bikes. Insane.

    I bet it drops another second at least with a repave.

    That asphalt is 12yo and rough in spots.

    Oh for sure....its a mess. It was only a year old when Mladin set the first 1:20, and that was on the "old" DMG-spec superbikes, which by todays standards is basically a STK1000.

    Rocco just put an SV into the 1:25s for qualifying. That's insane!

    I am a freaking blast at parties... as long as I don't have to deal with too much stupid. I have found out that the older I get the less tolerance I have for stupid. I really appreciate it when people actually give some thought to things before they open their stupid yaps.

    Don't think I've ever heard of Robbie Floyd. Online commentator for MA? Porkchop the other?
