I'm not a big photo taker at a GP, but did get a few, and a nice video of the moto gp guys coming through turn 1,

These guys are just wild to watch,so smooth, so precise

Casey didn't look the fastest, but it underlies how good he is. he was 0.5-0.8 sec in front of everyone all weekend. The guy who really impressed was Stefan Bradal, (am i getting old, i remember watching his old man race 250's) can that kid ride a bike, his brave, very brave. He was the best to watch through the very fast tun7/hayshed complex

did miss the smell of 2 strokes though

pics to follow
Go Casey

Thanks Mate. Sorry I missed the ride down on the tractor. I enjoyed race day on the tube. I've never been a Pedrosa fan and never will be, but I was sorry to see him blow his (probably only) championship chance on the first lap of what could have been a another great race.

Sorry to see the end of the Stoner age also, but happy to hear the end of the winging.

With out a doubt, with Lorenzo now champion the next round will be a wobble around, delivering the riders to a more prosperous 2013 championship in good shape I hope.

The last concern I have is now Dorna have control of both Superbikes and MotoGP. Lets hope they don't f*ck both championships.

Gave the tractor (my much un loved XTX660) a good tub up today so will pop it on flea bay in the morning

How about a nice 2000 Thunderace with 10K on the clock...

choices choices.....

When I typed it into babblefish the translation I got is "he's pissed again"...

the last day of the year is a nice time to reflect on another year of Moto gp, a bit late, but what the hell

Casey. Robbed. The only crash of his career that he wasn't able to walk away from came in his last season. Could he have won the title?? we will never know

Dani. Took a leaf out of Casey's book, loosened up the electronics, and proved that he's without a doubt one of the best 4 riders in the world

Lorenzo. Mr Consistency. The rider who accumulates the most points in the season wins, simple really.

Rossi. Back to the future. I'm not a huge fan, haven't been for a number of years, he is happy to take the money, but turned his back when all got to hard

The guy i have liked to watch this year is Moto 2 rider Pol Espargero. Marquez has great natural talent, but Pol has got the most out of his ability this year

Crutchlow, my pick for the man to watch in 13. I like Rossi, there's only so long you can bang your head against a wall before you get tired of the headache and move on. Let's see what he can stir up this year maybe some shenanigans again?
