    additionally is it going to become so evenly matched that there will be a group of 15 bikes all together and you may lose sight of watching one two three or four bikes battling as they all get swamped?
    I told Mike Webb that they needed to hand out playing cards on the grid, to be attached to each bikes fork leg.

    I did Japan this year - fucking awesome. Saw return flights advertised recently for around $880, highly recommended if you don't mind the language barrier.

    Likely gonna pop over to PI for 2019.

    get a general admission ticket for PI and walk round the track for the practise days then perhaps choose a grandstand for race day.You can still walk around with a grandstand ticket,but you can always go back to your seat too.Thats how i would try to do it

    This is Spyder trying to decide which event to go to next year, info that might prove very useful for others too. However, it's not about the racing etc so probably end up as it's own thread.

    Edzackery. It's not like there's any racing for another six months or so.

    And rule changes. Lots of rule changes.

    They may finally have killed off all the silly dawdling around on track that occurred in Moto3 by going to a Q1 & Q2 system. Mike Webb will go to bed with a happy smile thinking, "Try cruising round at walking speed now you little bastards".

    Ahhh but they are now concerned it will happen more in FP3. I think Mike should install a rocket up the arse of each racer and if they slow down hit a button to speed em up

    Last I saw him, I suggested that he use the F1 system where riders get dropped out regularly based on their times.
    So with 30 minutes to go in the last session, all but the top 20 are out, then the top 15 after another 10 minutes, then you have a 10 minute top ten shootout.
    Let's see them dawdle then...

    Testing thoughts:

    JL looking good on the Honda already, apparently very smooth, everyone says that it needs to be ridden like a lunatic but Dani got it to stay nice n smooth so JL may very well be able to ride it thus.
    Franco fucking fast on the Yamaha, he will give the other Yamaha boys a head ache next year I am pretty sure
    Zarco looking not so fast on the KTM, be hard to step back from a refined Jap bike to a raw KTM
    Bagniaia, Mir and Quatararo showing their talent
    Jack Miller also showing his talent, he's raving about how good the bike is.

    Yamaha looking fast in Mav's hands, but he's always fast in testing then it falls to shit later on so I won't hold my breath.

    Going to be a long off season
