    The Fat Lady is on the way to the airport to sing at Magny Cours

    Magny Cour's combination of technical sections with high speed is yielding a hard fought qualifying session. Biaggi may be in position to take the Riders Championship but the Ducati force are not going to make it easy for him. Sykes will qualify in the top but I don't think the French track is going to be friendly to him or his Kawasaki over the length of the race. BMW riders are in decent position in qualifying and should do very well on race day...IF...they can keep the black side down. Haslam has already gone down once.

    Superpole Fastest Lap (Superpole 3) No. 66 SYKES Tom Time 1'36.950 Avg. 163,792 Km/h

    Sykes takes another Superpole.

    Qualifying is over for the final WSBK round. On combined times Melandri lead the first two qualifying sessions. In the Superpole Sykes was able to put a top flying lap together to take pole position and hold off a charging Checa. Biaggi did not make it into Superpole 3 leavingLaverty to take top honors for Aprilia.

    Qualifying is over. What of the race.

    Sykes and his Kawasaki continue to be fast qualifiers but Magny Cours is a track that will eat up his tyres over the length of a race. Look for him to dominate the early portions of the race but become road kill in the closing lap duels.

    Biaggi's style is not particularly suited for this track yet in race conditions he may well fight to the front. I don't think that means a win but high enough to secure his title. If he falters Laverty will be ready to take the fight for Aprilia.

    Checa and Rea are the two riders to watch. Their Ducati and Honda bikes are suited to this track as are their riding styles. They are in their element.

    BMW should do well. Should. Will they? The S1000R is clearly up to the challenge yetI admit I am not so confident going into the race.

    Haslam will do his best, in what think is the last race of a valiant season, but he is beat up. Race 1 is his race to shine if he can. By race 2 he may have petrol in the bikes tank but no gas left in his body.

    Melandri should be the rider picking Sykes or one of the others off in the closing laps to take the win. Can he keep the black side down to the end of a race? He is a racer and loves to take racer chances. Judgment may be the obstacle keeping him off the podium.

    World Superstock 1000 ÔÇô BMW Italia's Barrier takes Rider Championship

    Sylvain Barrier (BMW Motorrad Italia GoldBet STK Team) survived a wet track and the pressure of racing for the championship at his home round to finish second at Magny-Cours and give himself an eventual clear championship win.

    His French countryman Jeremy Guarnoni (MRS Kawasaki) rode with confidence and pace in the wet to win the race, but main championship challenger Eddi La Marra (Barni Racing Team Italia Ducati) fell very early and lost his chance to get back into the race.

    Another potential champion Bryan Staring (Team Pedercini Kawasaki) fell early and rode hard to try and get back into contention. He finished fifth in the race and eventually fourth in the championship.

    The final points read Barrier 153, La Marra 130, Giarnoni 123, Staring 122.

    worldsbk.com: Half a point gives Max Biaggi the championship

    At the season finale of the 2012 FIM Superbike World Championship, Team BMW Motorrad Motorsport experienced an exciting race day, which at the same time was an emotional rollercoaster ride. The team challenged until the very last race of the season for both the RidersÔÇÖ and the ManufacturersÔÇÖ titles but was missing the necessary luck in the end. Factory rider Marco Melandri (ITA), who rode with two broken ribs, finished second in the first race. Therefore he kept his title chances alive as well as BMWÔÇÖs chances of winning the ManufactersÔÇÖ crown. But in the second race, a wet patch on the track, which made Marco lose control of his BMW S 1000 RR, ended all hopes. Leon Haslam (GBR), who at Magny-Cours (FRA) was competing in his last round as a BMW Motorrad factory rider, finished fifth in the first race but also crashed in the second heat. ..More

    Another title win for the BMW S 1000 RR: French rider Sylvain Barrier was crowned champion at the season finale of the 2012 FIM Superstock 1000 Cup at Magny-Cours (FRA).

    It??s an inaugural victory for Husqvarna at a desert rally. Joan Barreda is the winner of the Pharaons Rally 2012 in Egypt. The Speedbrain pilot emphasised his exceptional talent by taking three of six stages during the race held this week from Monday to Saturday. Barreda finished the closing stage in fourth position, as his team mate Paulo Goncalves owned the final 425km from Tibniya to Gizeh. "Speedy" Goncalves tried whatever he could to make up for his navigation error from yesterday??s stage, but the Portuguese couldn??t re-gain enough ground on his rivals Jakub Przygonski and Jordi Viladoms, therefore missing the overall podium of the FIM Cross Country Rally World Championship.

    Munich. In a sense, the big rear hatch is symbolic- because the MINI Coup?® is big in so many other ways as well. With its flamboyant styling and ultra-sporty driving qualities, the MINI Coup?® has set new standards for driving enjoyment in the premium small ItÔÇÖs now over a year since the two-seater made its first public appearance in the 24-hour endurance race on the N??rburgring North Loop, and since then the MINI Coup?® has gone on to shine in normal road driving, too, with unbeatable agility and thrilling cornering performance. The MINI Coup?® is a sports-minded individualist ready to advertise its hallmark driving character at a momentÔÇÖs notice, whether on the track or on the road. And nobody knows that character better than racing driver J??rgen Schmarl, newly crowned MINI Trophy 2012 champion. The Austrian driver has been in on the story right from the start. He was at the wheel of the MINI John Cooper Works Coup?® Endurance in that first ever race outing through the ÔÇ£Green HellÔÇØ of the N??rburgring. Now the 38-year-old has been putting the top Cooper Works Coup?®, to the test as well. ..More

    motogp

    Pedrosa reigns in Motgei with Lorenzo stuck in second while teammate Ben Spies yammared on about dnf due to brakes and Bautista celebrating in third. The outstanding win for Pedrosa out shined Stoner's fifth place racing return behind Tech 3 Yamaha's Dovizioso in fourth. Ducati had to be satisfied with a seventh for Rossi and eigth for Hayden in Japan. As fare as Stoner is concerned, he is just taking his time in his return.

    Espargaro toped the Edwards, the second CRT machine across the line, leaving the CRT leader De Puniet has a weekend to forgert.

    Enter the PR writiers and their Sunday post race press releases to put their spin on the Motegi race resuslts and the Rider Championship standings

    Dorna began the race weekend trying to explain the racing impact, or lack of, with the back of house org chart consolidation of Dorna and Infront by Bridgepoint. Any changes to the SBK series will happen in the future and in conjunction with the FIM, manufacturers and teams. Dorna finished the weekend talking about changes to MotoGP qualifying for 2013.

    Free practice sessions remain at three but they are not free they are now qualifying in a system that sounds like a watered down SBK cocktail made with a bit of F1 colour and 151 MotoGP rum. No doubt much will be made of this and its impact on racing. In morning discussions at the the Official Fly-Over-Land Coffee Shop we decided it has more to do with packagaing footage from qualifying into a one or two hour made for sale to TV 20 race mini series, than changing MotoGP racing in any significant manner. YMMV, but then that is what Bench Racing is about.

    In those new qualifying sessions will CRT machines have new tyres to run on?

    Formula 1

    F1 and local race promoters are concerned with the problem of getting fans to come to the Korean Yegoman circuit to see Vettel's victory. Race analysis sees the rest of the field wilting from the pressue of the resurgent Red Bull team.

    During the post race press conference Vettel and P2 Webber and P3 Alonso talked about the race. Meanwhile the other team and drivers quotes were about how their champaing and caviar dreams tasted in the aftermath of the Korean race.

    Vettel takes the Drivers Championship lead with 100 points still up for grabs. Can he make it three titles in a row? ÔÇ£We'll just keep pushing onÔÇØ was his response. Team boss Horner thinks the champ is in better form than ever. All of this only adds a spark to the rumor fires of Vettel to Ferrari in 2014 which Ferrari continues to deny. 2014 is a long way away in the F1 universe.

    Elsewhere on the grid Sauber will have Hulkenberg and Gutierrez in the cockpit for 2013.


    McLaren was absent from the podium with Hamilton limping home and Button blustering about Kobayashi and Perez.

    The six BMW drivers have made a lasting impression on the DTM thanks to a succession of strong performances over the course of the 2012 season. In doing so, they follow in the footsteps of the legendary drivers who caused a stir at the wheel of BMW racing cars in this series between 1984 and 1992. Among these were Harald Grohs (DE) and 1987 and 1989 champions Eric van de Poele (BE) and Roberto Ravaglia (IT). Between them, the trio notched up countless wins in the DTM. Another thing they have in common is that all three were only mildly surprised by the level of BMWÔÇÖs success at the past nine races. ..More

    On certain motorcycles, the regulator/rectifier can overheat and prevent battery charging. Once the battery is fully discharged, the motorcycle will stall. Engine stalling would result in lost vehicle propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road condition, and the rider’s reactions, could increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the regulator/rectifier.

    Other Racing

    Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain won their first stage victory on the TE449RR in the Morocco Rally. Paulo Goncalves, the team’s Portuguese rider, took the Erfoud to Zagora stage that featured 291 km (182 miles) of special test. Goncalves finished just three seconds ahead of rival Rodrigues. A great performance too from Joan Barreda who came in fourth in the stage and now sits in third in the overall standings after three days of racing. Australian Matt Fish finished eighth, proving himself to be extremely quick in his first rally on the HusqvarnaTE449RR by Speedbrain. A special mention should go to Marc Coma who had an accident half way into the special test. We’d like to wish him a speedy recovery before the next Dakar 2013. Tomorrow looks forward to the fourth of six stages with 250 km of special test and a 162 km transfer. ..More

    The Mothership

    Over the course of the opening weekend of the DTM, 142,000 fans packed into the stands in Hockenheim (DE) to follow BMW’s return to the series. At the end of a magnificent season that included four wins and four pole positions, BMW Team Schnitzer, BMW Team RBM and BMW Team RMG return to the 4.574-kilometre circuit for the grand finale. Buoyed by the support of its fans, BMW has been able to far surpass its own expectations in the 2012 DTM and, with Bruno Spengler (CA) and BMW Team Schnitzer, still has a chance of winning both the drivers’ and team titles going into the final race...More

    BMW Team RLL will contest its fourth “Petit Le Mans” race at Road Atlanta (US) this weekend with only one goal – a victory. The two previous season’s American Le Mans Series (ALMS) season-ending 1000-mile race was run with championships at stake. A fourth place finish in 2010 and a third place finish in 2011 secured BMW consecutive GT class manufacturers’ titles. ..More

    Frankfurt am Main. Intelligent driving that saves energy and increases safety always means anticipating what’s ahead, too. An array of sensors is today already at work in vehicles to help drivers do just that. The anticipation “horizon” of these sensors is often limited, however, and confined to the vehicle’s immediate surroundings. “Car-to-X communication greatly extends the anticipation horizon and will in future allow drivers to look far into the distance, see things that are hidden, and even peer round several corners,” explains Karl-Ernst Steinberg, Manager Projects IT Drive at BMW Group Research and Technology. ..More

    jsonline.com: Now the official matress of the Green Bay Packers

    The Verlo Mattress Factory has been named the official mattress of the Green Bay Packers.

    The NFL and its teams, owners and players have made a bundle of money through all sorts of endorsement deals in addition to a killing on TV deals and more. For all the money the NFL brings in what is known as football in the rest of the world rakes in even more.

    This is the world that Bridgepoint and its minions Dorna and Infront deal in. When Dorna and Infront were independent minions they played minor roles in that world. Bridgepoint purchsed them as much or more for their football assets as the fact the were racing promoters. Bridgepoints ROI will be realized in the promotions running up to the next World Cup. The fall out for motorcycle racing fans is Bridgepoint will want to maximize their ROI and or favorite form of racing and motorcycling in general may benefit.

    How Bridgpoint consolidates and then promotes its new racing empire will have major impacts on the sport and the industry for years. As you try to sort out rules changes, racing calendars fights over ECU units and more keep in mind more is at stake than racing rules. Bridgpoint is putting together racing packages to promote and in turn make a profit from. In the process sponsors will be attracted, promotional oportunities uncovered. Assuming this influx of cash into the sport the possiblities for growth are encouraging. The potential for other things grows too.

    The vision of Pete Rozelle brought a football emprie to the NFL. That empire has world championships, Super Bowls, parody, sideline TV directors that tell referes when commercials are done and the game can resume and offical matresses of teams in small markets like Green Bay Wisconson. It may be a long time before your local BMW S1000RRv?? racing team has an official team matress. Between now and then as you try and sort out the coming changes keep the business plan in mind as much as your racing preferences.

    I wonder if Team BMW Motorrad will have cool bedding for their matresses like Packers have for their offical matresses?
