But does anyone know the Moto GP game for PC? Thought I'd bring this up since it's in the same sphere haha. Long story short: awesome graphics, realistic gameplay and real racers. Used to play the first version of this when I was young and fell in love with it. Does anyone else play it in here?

YAMAHA AND HELMET MAKER ARGUING OVER 5MM



In racing, measurements are taken with calipers and modifications are measured in millimeters, but the idea that the aerodynamics of a MotoGP bike may depend on the chinbar of a helmet being 5mm shorter is certainly surprising.
This is exactly the point in the conversations Yamaha?s racing department is holding with HJC, Jorge Lorenzo?s Korean helmet sponsor. ?We need to gain 5mm,? explained Yamaha MotoGP director Kouichi Tsuji?the man primarily responsible for the YZR-M1?to Sport Rider during 2015 Team Yamaha?s official launch held in Madrid. ?We have done aerodynamic tests with Jorge and we need this distance when he hides behind the fairing on the straights.?

Can "old man" Rossi hold on for another title?
Maybe he can! The way he just held off Marquez on the last lap was typically Rossi - simply phenomenal! The man is one of a kind.

Rossi was terrific. Marquez almost squeezed by. fab race. The Honda seemed a little more competitive today. First few races Yamaha looked like they were up a bit on horsepower. I like both of them.

A football friend from one of my Dutch forums was in the yellow 'Rossi stand' with his yellow flag - he said the cheer when the Doctor held Marquez off on the last bend was like a world cup goal going in - they all went ape. I will confess to jumping up and down like a lunatic in my living room. :p

I got goose bumps thinking about being in the Rossi box for that!

EDIT: Holy POO, that was a crazy!

the thrilla in manila. er maylasia. bad blood between MM and VR. the racing was great until the incedent.
 
:(
I'm happy for Marc and Jorge, though, they make a good couple. :p

I wouldn't have minded Marquez actually trying to overtake Lorenzo, instead of staying on his wheel for 29 laps and making one or two half hearted moves
