#MotoGP #Qatar #RainyDayDreamAway
MotoGP FP2 about to get underway!
Weather will definitely continue to have an impact as reports indicated a hailstorm (in the desert!) which occurred earlier in the day. Wind is the main issue now.
Rain is expected at the moment for Sunday’s racing. Will competition get underway? Always a possibility – but Dorna has dealt with this in the past by delaying racing until the following Monday. (Racing in the wet is STILL a possibility for MotoGP – not Moto2/3 – if rain occurs.)
My gut feeling is that the GP riders will complain of poor visibility / reflections if rain does occur Sunday and the entire paddock will race Monday. Just a hunch.
Another piece of information confirming preference for/usage of caged roller style bearings (as opposed to tapered) in the steering head for race applications! This is a screen capture from MotoGP Sepang Test Day 2.
Going back to OEM on my Suzuki – new tires this weekend as well! Michelin Pilot Road 4s for daily road use!
Watching BeINSports’/Dorna’s coverage of the final Valencia test at the end of 2016 – very generous coverage indeed. It will be good to see the changes made over the winter when testing resumes in 3 days time – 8:00PM CST for those of you planning on tuning in (MotoGP.com).
