Warmth of the herd...

After BP's good talking to, I've thought it through and I'm moving my alliance for 2007 to one of the less dominant teams - yep off the bandwagon and onto Ilmor I go.

No more herd hugging, blindly following the pack, I'll be a standout, I'm make all my own decisions and when McWilliams steps onto that podium after months of hard work, I will be rewarded.... oh hang on, what this???

______________

Ilmor pull out of MotoGP Friday March 16, 1:24 PM AAP

Ilmor have announced their temporary withdrawal from the 2007 World MotoGP Championship just one race into the season because of a lack of sponsorship, the team said.

Team principal Mario Illien said development of Ilmor's 2007 bike would continue and they would seek to re-enter the competition.

The British-based team was launched in Portugal at the penultimate race of the 2006 season, and made an inauspicious bow in the new 800cc format.

Australian rider Andrew Pitt retired seven laps from the end of the opening race of the season last week in Qatar and Northern Ireland's Jeremy McWilliams was unable to race after a crash in final qualifying.

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

Team principal Mario Illien said that realising nobody could make pizza like "mama used to make" and that getting ahead in Moto GP meant you had to have a boyfriend Dorna could "get farked"

Probably read a few books on King Kennys struggle with pig uncompetitive bikes ( even with the honda engine) and realised he was on a hidin to nowhere.

Must say JR has been doin OK since the honda power plant got shoe horned in. Problem is he's a twat that not even i could support.

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

Isn't it interesting that unless you like the riders personality, it's really hard to follow them. For that reason I've never been a Rossi fan and couldn't ever get into the Doohan days (clearly the best two out there the past 10 years)

So come on you lot, who is your least liked of the past 10 years or so??? Seems to have settled down lately, but Max would be high up on my list

If we open it up a little to include SBK it would be Bayliss for me by a long shot. What a top top bloke on and off the track, and you just have to love his riding style (or lack of haha).

Second would have to be Edwards.

Although I am starting to take a shine towards Stoner ... he seems to have as much potential as I gave Pedrosa .... yet Stoner seems to have a great personality, where the later has none ...

Gibblet the drama queen and all round prick closely followed by Max, gets my vote.

I didn't think it'd take long for Sete's name to appear

Another superstar that I never went for was Eddie Lawson, must have been his house brick like personality Oh and Mat Mladin, clearly his own biggest fan

I actually like Rossi's personality really. He's got a sense of humor doesn;t mind getting beaten, has a good word for those that beat him ( very rare in any sport).

Met Aron Slight a couple of times and he was a great bloke too. Troy Corser's well up there too.

Another all time prick has to be John Koshinski

Even though ill probably get abuse for this, I wouldnt be a big fan of Nicky Hayden. Good rider and that, but the attitude just seems a bit too cocky, IMO. Being a Tamada & Rossi fan, I would probably always say Hayden for obvious reasons anyway!

Haydons Ok i guess ...very Yank like and therefore really annoying. A couple of good kickin's on the track should calm him down ...one under his belt already


KR JR is just really dull and a spoilt brat.

Agreed on both accounts. KR SNR hasnt done a great job on the paint job this year. Not sure if its a great idea on KR JR riding alone either?

Just my though, no harm to any yanks there.. but im sure you all know the type we are talking about.
