Silva Bullet Believe me, it is just frustration wenting. There is nothing I can do about it now.
I bet most of you guys would be somewhat irritated if someone who has nothing to do with you starts getting involved with your fight. On top of that he is not fully aware about what he is getting involved with....

Carl Fogarty is a true "cant" any day.

tls boy i was realy looking forward to coming down to watch you all race and catch up on some drinking,(just moved into my condo in KL) but i stupidly signed a new contract and am now in johanesburg doging car jackers and other theiving scum.

yellow peril I did take part as well, although further back in the field. I'm not so ambitious anymore, just happy to ride around the track, so I decided to go for the 600cc rather than the open class. Had a good time in the two races and ended up 6th out of 8.

bigphil Unfortunately the ringit isn;t worth a damn so Moses bribe didn't last long.

And as always you can guarantee Saliva to dive in.
Who said the Norwegian was drunk ??? He was attached to something thou, but far from sturdy

And because i don't bleat on a forum about my shortfalls doesn;t mean i don't race
10-25-2007 08:26 PM
Silva Bullet Of course it's a conspiracy! Moses has paid everybody off to hinder me in having a chance at the championship. He has probably paid you off too

Professional or amateur......at least I'm still racing

As for the drunk Norwegian,
I will make a wild guess and say he was either firmly attaching himself to something very sturdy in order to remain upright, or he was passed out lying on the floor...

bigphil sounds like you got a bum deal there Saliva ...i mean what with your tyre, the track, the SBK guy, illegal overtaking on the striaght an all, it sounds like a conspiracy

All these low ability ambitious people eh! Bastards the lot of em
Could be worse they could go around telling fellow countrymen about their proffesional racing career.

Met a Norwegian friday night in a KL Irish bar .... you can guess the rest

Silva Bullet I was waiting for you to tell you about your tire blowing up. Glad you managed to keep it upright.
As for the "unfair" overtaking I think you are referring to the fact that SBK's have about 60-80hp more then my bike, so they kept on re-passing me down the straight and phucking up my 1st race. I didn't have 1 clear lap as they kept on doing all strange kind of things through the corners. I think checking how much their sphincter could tolerate was one of them

Sharing bed?
I don't remember any such thing...I was under age at the moment...I declare momentary lapse of reason...YP is a big liar and no friend of mine...it's the hotel's fault who couldn't find another room in anotherwise empty hotel.

Hope you can make it to the last round. Otherwise I will be the only one from the original SBR club racing...
Now that is a really sad thing.

At least you got to race

I qualified 7th on the grid for race 1 and was doin fine right up until my rear tyre blew on lap 2 coming off turn 14 and onto the back straight.... that was a sphincter winking moment if ever there was one ! Imagine riding your bicyle across the beach at 100 plus kmh .....

Race 2 started from the back (41st) and had a great time..... gave it everything I could and ended up coming 7th, which was nice!


celebrated that with a wheelie the full length of the back straight and a little bit more as well nearly ending up outbraking myself on the grass..


Classic quote of the weekend came from Silver who complained that he had been overtaken unfairly down the straight !!!!


Carl Notfasti also owned up over lunch that he and the silver bullet were sharing a bed .... which is illegal in Malaysia I think.


Brilliant time ....

Gixxer_Dave Hard to beat someone called Moses, that guy def. has some help from above

Don't worry Saliva, a few kamikaze moves in the final round and you'll be right there

MotoGP support race report

The weekend was bad and good for me I guess. Practice and qualifying was very good all considered, as I (like most of the others) had not had any track time since the last race. Not to mention the full track and the new (again) surface. New bumps all over the place, but new tarmac with relatively good grip for being as new as it is.

Practice and qualifying felt pretty ok, and I was more comfortable on the bike then before (I got a steering dampener since my last crash caused by a huge wobble coming out of turn 3 which is the highest speed corner on the track).
I was 2nd in the championship, 13points behind the leader.

Anyway,
Saturday and race 1 came and I was pretty confident I would have a shot at winning the race. I'd qualified 2nd in SS and was beside Massimo "Max", who is 3rd in the championship. If not winning, I was even more confident about getting 2nd which would also help me with points in the championship against points leader Moses who qualified much further back.
This was not to be as I had bad start and Moses had a decent start. I got caugt up with some SBK's (MotoGP support race mixes SBK and SS class into 1 group/race) who were all "stop-and-go" racers. Total mess and several of them had a bit more ambition then ability. They were overdoing it in so many places I cannot understand how not more then 1 of them crashed. He crashed spectacularly in front of me going into turn 14.
However, through most of this Moses stuck behind me getting in front of me on a couple of occasions. I had no problem retaking the position from him, so felt that all I had to do was push a bit harder towards the end and he would stay behind me. So come the last lap and I try to pass this SBK into turn 7. He totally cuts me off even though I was on beside him on the inside going into the corner. Then going through the final section before the back straight I close on him and get in front on the back straight. He powers past me again on the inside. So I thought ok, let him get in front of me over the line as long as Moses stays behind. I consentrate on late braking and taking a nice smoot line through 15. The SBK in the meantime breaks way too early (while coming down the middle of the track into turn 15), but cannot hold it and drifts wide. By this time I'm up on his outside. So when he drifts wide, I am forced to take an even wider line. Moses who was even further behind eases up the inside and gets unhindered through and takes the flag right in front of my nose...
I was absolutely furious with the bloody SBK guy, but that helps little in the scheme of things. It's racing after all.

Sunday's race was better, as I got a better start. Moses got an even better start. However, I got in behind Max and the 2 of us pushed through some SBK's and caught up with Moses within 1 lap. Max got past Moses and Moses retook his place, before I overtook Max. After about 1 lap of this Max got in front and I also pushed in front of Moses. Max and I pushed harder and had several laps in the 2.23's. I was in fact about to overtake Max, but thought I should let him lead so I could control from behind. I let him back in front. Big mistake. He pushed even harder and although I was always in touch with him my rear tire started to slide towards the end of the race. I was on soft rear Michelin, whileas Max was on Medium/Soft rear...

So Max won both races. Moses and I had 2nd and 3rd between us, and as per MSS standard by virtue of my better position in the 2nd race I got 2nd for the round. However, in the championship it means nothing as Moses and I got the same number of points for the round.
So now it's down to the last round. Moses and I are still 13points apart. I absolutely have to win both races, and I need someone to come in between Moses and me in at least 1 of the races. If the SBK had not pushed me wide in the 1st race, it would have been all up to me (only 9points apart) to take the championship with 2 wins...
