    Friday was a busy day in F1. 2013 Calendar, a year with no step noses and doubele DRS allowed, Hamilton to Mercedes, Perez to McLaren, Schumacher still keeping his options open but Sauber would hire him instantly.

    New Jersey F1 promoter pround of place on calendar. I think they will keep it but if you buy tickets make certain to check the fine print for refund rules.

    Why did Hamiton switch from McLaren to Mercedes? Is McLaren's Witmarsh right thinking Hamilton made a mistake? I do.

    Will Ecclestone get his wish and dump the new engines slated to come in 2014?

    MotoGP.com: Pedrosa rules in Arag??n with dominant victory

    Sunday, 30 September 2012

    In a thrilling race at the Gran Premio Iveco de Arag??n it was Repsol Honda Team’s Dani Pedrosa who took a dominant victory under sunny skies at his home race ahead of Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso.


    Yamaha Factory Racing’s Lorenzo got the holeshot ahead of Pedrosa, with Yamaha’s Ben Spies in tow. The first two laps were not good for the Ducati team, as Valentino Rossi touched the rear wheel of Repsol Honda’s Jonathan Rea, with the Italian forced to run off. This was followed by a big crash form Nicky Hayden, who was violently thrown over the advertising boards in Turn 16, after failing to slow down on time. He received instant medical attention and was later declared ok by the medical centre, yet has been given a neck brace and will undergo more precautionary checks to rule out internal injuries.

    Lap four saw Pedrosa close in on Lorenzo’s rear wheel, as Avintia Blusens’ David Salom had to retire from the race. Meanwhile LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl took Spies for third, yet crashed out a few turns later as he lost the front pushing too hard. This left the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 duo of Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Dovizioso to hunt down the American for a spot on the podium. It took Pedrosa until lap seven to make his move on Lorenzo, taking the lead for the first time.

    On lap nine Lorenzo had a big wobble giving Pedrosa a bigger gap at the front, as Rossi was making his way up through the pack. With 13 laps left, Crutchlow ran wide coming onto the home straight, letting Dovizioso into fourth. Six laps later Pedrosa had pulled out a gap of over four seconds at the front, as Dovizioso made his way past Spies, with Crutchlow probing the inside line of the American, but to no avail.
    The Brit was however not to be deterred and got past with five laps to go, immediately setting his sights on his Italian teammate. At the same time an entertaining battle for 13th ensued between Paul Bird

    Motorsport’s James Ellison and Avintia’s Yonny Hernandez. A lap later Rossi’s day took another bad turn as he ran wide through the gravel, but retained eighth place.

    The Tech 3 pair provided a thrilling last couple of laps fighting for the final podium spot, with the Brit desperately looking for a way past. In some hard passing where the two went fairing-to-fairing Crutchlow was altering his line in numerous corners to get past the Italian who was defending aggressively.

    In the end it was Pedrosa who crossed the finish line first over six seconds ahead of second placed Lorenzo, with Dovizioso taking his sixth podium this year. Pedrosa has now cut the championship gap to Lorenzo to 33 points. Crutchlow came in a close fourth, with San Carlo Honda Gresini’s ?ülvaro Bautista, Rea, Rossi, and Cardion AB Racing’s Karel Abraham completing the top nine. Power Electronics Aspar’s Aleix Espargar?? came in tenth as top CRT in tenth.

    The Mothership

    The new BMW R 1200 GS.
    The worldÔÇÖs most successful travel enduro is perfected.


    The ÔÇ£BMW GSÔÇØ concept has embodied riding pleasure and the desire for adventure for over 30 years. This applies especially to the GS motorcycles with the opposed-twin ÔÇ£boxerÔÇØ engine. The ÔÇ£big GSÔÇØ allows motorcyclists to explore the most remote corners of the world - an idea that has already inspired numerous globetrotters to set off on their travels.

    But the GS was and still is much more than this. Whether sports-style cornering on winding country roads, excellent travel times due to high motorway speeds, relaxed tours with a passenger or daring rides over rough terrain - every GS has offered supreme mastery of these skills in its respective era and this wonÔÇÖt change with the new version.

    It is the unique integrated concept of the big travel enduro bike with boxer engine, complete with authentic charm and a powerful, high-torque engine, which is loved by legions of motorcycle fans all over the world to this day. It is not for nothing that the ÔÇ£big BMW GSÔÇØ with boxer engine has been the undisputed frontrunner in its market segment for many years and is the best-seller within the BMW Motorrad model range. BMW is now beginning a whole new chapter in GS history: the most popular travel enduro in the world has been brought to perfection.

    The challenge: how to improve even more following nine years*
    at the top.

    Even in its ninth year of production, the current BMW R 1200 GS is still setting the benchmark in its segment in comparative tests with its outstanding overall concept and innovative technology. With over 170,000 units sold,
    it is the most successful and top-selling travel enduro in the world.

    So the challenge facing the BMW Motorrad development department was considerable: to further optimise the GS - an icon of three decades - improve it in all areas and equip it with innovative technical solutions to ensure it is in good shape for the future.

    The development goals of the new BMW R 1200 GS:
    ÔÇó Further increase performance overall - without neglecting its
    well-established virtues.
    ÔÇóPerfect its touring suitability.
    ÔÇó Increase off-road suitability.
    ÔÇó Achieve superior figures within the travel enduro segment and beyond in terms of engine and riding performance.
    ÔÇó Ensure preparation for the future in terms of noise and exhaust emissions.
    ÔÇó Suspension with top handling, optimum traction and increased off-road performance.
    ÔÇó Increase active and passive safety.
    ÔÇó Unmistakable BMW Motorrad design in typical GS style.
    ÔÇó Top quality as is characteristic of BMW Motorrad.

    Newly designed air/water-cooled boxer engine with vertical through-flow, integrated gearbox and left-hand cardan shaft drive.
    Geared towards the above goals, the entire R 1200 GS was completely redefined, particularly the drive concept.
    The performance aspired to, as well as adherence to future anticipated requirements in terms of noise and exhaust emissions, is ensured among other things by a change in the cooling system. The boxer engine in the new R 1200 GS continues to use air/liquid cooling, however, the coolant oil has been replaced by a glycol-water mixture. This ensures a high level of heat absorption capacity of the cooling liquid for more efficient heat dissipation.

    So-called precision cooling (a principle similar to that used in Formula 1) involves only those engine elements being cooled with coolant, which are particularly exposed to thermal stress. The engine still continues to use air cooling, thereby preserving the characteristic appearance of the opposed twin boxer engine. The two radiators are small and inconspicuously integrated.

    The through-flow is now vertical instead of horizontal for improved filling, and the engine housing integrates the 6-speed gearbox as well as a wet clutch with anti-hopping function instead of the dry clutch as was used previously. What is more, the secondary drive now runs via the well-established cardan shaft on the left-hand side. With an output of 92 kW (125 bhp) at 7700 rpm and 125 Nm at 6500 rpm, the new engine offers superior power and performance in the travel enduro segment and beyond.

    The empty weight (ready for the road) according to DIN of the R 1200 GS is 238 kg including standard BMW Motorrad Integral ABS.

    E-gas and cruise control.
    An electromotive throttle actuator is now used for the first time in a GS motorcycle. Here, rider commands are passed on directly by the sensor in the accelerator twist grip to the engine control system; this then regulates the throttle valve electronically. The use of the E-gas system provides a significant improvement in terms of controllability and response. What is more, the rider can adapt engine characteristics to the situation on the road by means of five modes (optional extra). It was also possible to include an electronic cruise control function (optional extra).

    ASC and riding modes as an optional extra: five freely selectable modes - ÔÇ£RainÔÇØ, ÔÇ£RoadÔÇØ, ÔÇ£DynamicÔÇØ, ÔÇ£EnduroÔÇØ and ÔÇ£Enduro ProÔÇØ.
    For optimum adaptation to the riderÔÇÖs individual needs and purpose, the new R 1200 GS now offers five freely selectable riding modes for the first time: these are an ex works option and feature three different E-gas settings and with varying engine characteristics. Linked to this is Automatic Stability Control ASC with a special enduro configuration. If this option is chosen, BMW Motorrad ABS, ASC and - if installed - the semiactive suspension are all adapted to the respectiveprofiles of these five modes

    Semiactive suspension: BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA for optimum riding dynamics in every situation as an ex works option.
    The new semiactive suspension BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) taps into a whole new range of possibilities as well as providing maximum riding safety and performance. Dynamic ESA monitors the vertical movement of front and rear wheel control as well as other parameters by means of a spring travel sensor in each position, and adapts the damping automatically to the situation depending on riding conditions and the manoeuvres being carried out. Damping adjustment at front and rear is effected by means of electrically controlled regulation valves.

    New chassis with tubular steel bridge frame and specially adapted wheel/tyre dimensions of 120/70 R19 at front and 170/60 R17 at rear as a world first.
    The chassis of the R 1200 GS uses a completely newly developed tubular all-steel bridge frame with a bolt-on rear frame. Along with the newly designed Telelever at the front and the EVO Paralever at the rear, this has resulted in a further significant increase in torsional stiffness and hence ride stability and steering precision. Optimised handling qualities are the result of refined master geometric chassis data, and a longer swingarm provides further improved traction - especially when riding over rough terrain.

    A globally unique feature of the new R 1200 GS are the tyres in the sizes 120/70 R19 at the front and 170/60 R17 at the rear, specially adapted to improve performance.

    Revised brake system with radially mounted Brembo Monobloc brake calipers and BMW Motorrad Integral ABS as standard.
    The brake system of the R 1200 GS has been extensively revised, too. There are now radially mounted Brembo Monobloc brake calipers at the front and a larger brake disc at the rear.

    In line with the BMW Motorrad principle ÔÇ£Safety 360??ÔÇØ the new GS is also fitted as standard with the BMW Motorrad ABS, here in the part integral version.

    The first motorcycle in the world with LED main headlight including integrated daytime running light for even greater safety when riding during the day and at night as an ex works option.
    Even in its standard trim the new R 1200 GS has a main headlight with optimised light efficiency. In order to be seen even better during the day, BMW Motorrad also offers a daytime running light as an ex works option. For excellent road illumination and therefore even greater safety both day and night, an LED main headlight with integrated daytime running light is fitted in a motorcycle for the first time ever. It comprises innovative LED technology with a sophisticated cooling and decondensation concept.

    Electrical system with new vehicle power supply and*
    Multi-Controller for the BMW Motorrad Navigator IV.

    The new R 1200 GS has the innovative new vehicle power system with altered function partitioning as already used in the 6-cylinder models K 1600 GT and GTL. As before, CAN bus (Controller Area Network) and LIN bus technology (Local Interconnect Network) enables significantly reduced wiring as compared to a conventional system. The previous central vehicle electronics has been partitioned into two separate control units.

    The Multi-Controller, newly available for the GS, allows fast and convenient operation of the BMW Motorrad Navigator IV. It is located on the inside of the handlebar grip. This means that selecting functions is much less distracting than pressing buttons and does not require hands to be removed from the handlebars.

    Aerodynamically optimised windshield with one-hand operation and optimum ergonomics.
    The newly developed windshield of the R 1200 GS offers further improved wind and weather protection while also reducing wind noise. Adjustment is simple: an easily accessible and ergonomically optimised selection wheel is operated using one hand.

    The new R 1200 GS has extended adjustment options for optimum seating comfort. The riderÔÇÖs seat can now be adjusted in height and tilt angle and the passenger seat can be shifted longitudinally to obtain the ideal distance between rider and passenger. The new handlebars can easily be turned upwards and, together with the optimised knee grip in the fuel tank area, they ensure an even better standing position for off-road riding. The improved knee grip can be clearly felt when seated, too. A high and a low seat, as well as an adjustable footrest system and adjustable foot controls, round off the program of special accessories offering individual adjustment facilities.

    An overview of highlights of the new BMW R 1200 GS.
    ÔÇó Completely newly designed engine for top-level riding dynamics within the travel enduro segment.
    ÔÇó Capacity 1170 cc, rated output 92 kW (125 bhp) at 7700 rpm and a maximum torque of 125 Nm at 6500 rpm.

    The debut of the new R 1200 GS touring enduro sees BMW Motorrad open up a whole new chapter of the GS legend. For over 30 years, the "BMW GS" concept has stood for sheer riding pleasure and a thirst for adventure. This is particularly true for the GS motorcycles with boxer engines. The ÔÇ£big GSÔÇØ bikes can be used to discover the most remote corners of our world ÔÇô and have already provided many travellers with a trusty mount for their world tour. To mark the launch of the new R 1200 GS, the motorcycle that the fans of the legendary 2-cylinder touring enduros are already dying to see, the Bavarian brand is sending one of the new models on a very unusual world tour of five continents before the official market launch. ..More

    FWIW

    motomatters.com: Bridgepoint announces MotoGP and World Superbike series to be brought together.

    MotoMatters thinks this is a ÔÇ£hugeÔÇØ announcement and will do analysis over the next few days. Why?

    The announcement that Bridgepoint bought World Superbike after its purchase of Dorna was a big deal. The purchases allowed Bridgepoint to consolidate its sport promotion empire by acquiring two organizations that controlled different key elements of football promotions and TV contracts. In the process the huge question was what would happen to the biker stepchildren?

    Bringing the two series under roof makes business sense. Down at the Official Fly-Over-Land Coffee Shop we have been wondering when this would take place. If we are smart enough to see the business sense in it what is the big deal that a big capital investment group would come to the same conclusion?

    The big news is yet to come. The gears are grinding in the background and that will be a huge release. Can SBK and the FIM globalize the SBK rules unifying the various national series under one set of rules? Would a SBK World Cup model follow? What are they going to do with MotoGP and CRT?

    Those are the premier league series. What about the under cards? Do all the those Supersport Moto2,3... under cards survive as the two are brought together?

    Finally, what will be the relationship between a publicly floated F1 and Bridgepoint?

    The announcement made by Bridgepoint, Dorna and Infront is a business page public relations release. A bit of housekeeping that business that merge regularly make. Big news in itself? No. However, it is a precursor to announcements worth deep analysis.
