In Moto GP there is talk about going to a 1000cc capacity power plant, what the reasoning behind such an idea is, is beyond me. Already the 800s are setting times quicker that the older 990s did and the much touted “cost reducing efforts” has cut away the much needed testing that new riders so require, most new riders need two years of crashing before they are able to ride their 220+ bhp beasts competitively too, so why go to 1000cc?
“Progress has been rapid, it has to be said, but I am still convinced that by following my long-standing concepts, we can win on the tracks, and I will not rest until we do. Everything is in place, and the time has come to challenge…..”

AR Rehman’s unusual and fascinating music creations turned focus to the fact there is room for new ideas and fresh faces to make it to the top in a field surrounded by the largest movie industry in the world, dominated by huge names. Call it the influence of dreams!!
A little after Honda announced it was pulling out of F1, Suzuki and Subaru followed with announcements of their decision to withdraw from the World Rally Championship. More recently Kawasaki announced that they will not field a team in Moto GP this year. The situation with motor sports is getting to be a matter of concern and many of the problems seem common to other disciplines of motor racing too, including karting.
Should we take note of Honda’s pull out from F1? Might there be other angles too? Let us ponder some of the questions that might be relevant to what is becoming of motor racing.
