Without a doubt...

No questions asked, absolutely, I don't care what anyone says, that's the best GP race in over 10 years

Peddy did good, Stoner was unreal and how about Marco's mugging on the last corner

AND what about the 250 last lap!!!!!

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Agreed

Unbelievable stuff. The 250cc was just amazing.

All the classes

The 125, 250 and the MotoGP. All were great. Host BC plus Joycie, Grandpa Simon and I were cringing and gasping for air watching the show. Cracking good races and a great track that is.

The guys will surely remember they managed to get on the podium in Turkey taking THOSE trophies home...

Amazing motoGP race! Would Rossi have been in the running had he not ran wide in the first few laps? He was about 6 secs behind the winner in the end and probably lost that much by running wide going from 8th to 14th?

The Ducati's sure ran out of steam or perhaps it was more a factor of who was on Bridgestones?

What a belter

Are the new boys showing them the way home?
How come the Suzuki's are shite one week and spot on the week after.

Rossi and co are getting a bit worried. You could see how happy he was in Qatar after the win.
When it comes to riding underpowered bikes with shagged tyres he's still the best. See how quick he was in the last 10 laps of Turkey.
Still amazed by haydons over taking moves in the early part of the race. And how bloody smooth is Pedro...even falls off in style the little bugger.
I just hope Stoner and CV can be consistant at the front.
Only bad news is that prick Ozzie commentator we have to put up with. What a twat

Had to use my step ladder to change a light bulb cos i don't get on with my real ladder.

Yes and Biaggi would have been in the top ten finishes if he hadn't retired last year

You have to think they put some super soft rubber on 'em in a last ditch effort to make it up towards the front, see how quick they faded after 10-15 laps.... CV is no Rossi, but he can go at it and he went backwards at a rate of knots!!! and you saw Hopper in for a new one around the same time.....

He is the real deal when it comes to knobs, never heard him over here, he just turns up at race 1 of motogp. At least they have him wondering around the pits instead of waffling on the whole race

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Do you get the same commentary we do then Dave??

The Brits are just as bad at the rugby commentary but i always thought the GP commentators were pretty balanced till this knob turned up.
