    Fantastic race. Easily one of the best ever. So much rubber left on leathers after all the encounters. Amazing stuff.

    Always thought MM was heir to the throne, looks done. Congrats to him!

    Amazing the racing the PI has given us, shouldn't with that long straight.
    In contrast MMP is a great track but doesn't end up in good battles in pro classes. Must be the elevation

    Bumps off line make passing difficult on some tracks. PI has a consistent surface and a few lines into the corners, its a great track, in the top 4 bike tracks i reckon.

    Na, the ABs were worn out, they risked and rested a few of the big guns, and paid the price. Aussies played well and deserved their win, good result for rugby in general. Ok back to moto gp. first and second for KTMs in the 600s, great result also.

    Pi

    Just watched the press conference. Riders were asked about the aggressive racing. Marc’s comment was basically that he felt the racing was good, and should stay aggressive so that MotoGP doesnt turn into F1.

    i thought the interviews with Rossi and Mark showed they both really enjoyed the close racing, they were both buzzing after the race. they both raced a fantastic race. the fact all the battling riders stayed on made it that much better, they all had a chance at winning. best race of the year, but not the best final footage of the year.

    I sat in the grandstand between T2 and 3 and some of the passing into Southern Loop under brakes (Iannone) and also the outside passing by Marquez through it was just as was the elbows almost on the deck over Lukey in the rain in WUP.

    Great result for the KTM team in Moto2 also, so happy to see Brad Binder doing well!

    It is a lot of fun, but quite intimidating as it's obviously very high speed. Even an idiot like me goes through T3 at 200kmh, and I always think to myself, if this breaks away, I hope I wake up afterwards!

    954 actually Jed. The T's would be hard work there with the inability to tuck in out of the wind blast.
