MotoGP Jerez: Lorenzo pips Pedrosa in first practice

MotoGP Jerez: Lorenzo pips Pedrosa in first practice | MARKER RACING  ARGENTINA SPEED | Scoop.it

Jorge Lorenzo nudged compatriot Dani Pedrosa from the top of the Jerez timesheets on his final lap of opening practice for their home Spanish MotoGP, the first European round of the 2013 season.

Repsol Honda rider Pedrosa was quick from the off, while Lorenzo spent most of the 45-minute session in second. The reigning double champion then turned up the heat in the closing minutes and ultimately put his Yamaha just 0.003s under Pedrosa's best as the chequered flag was waving.

Lorenzo, who celebrates his 26th birthday on Saturday and will have the final turn officially renamed in his honour on Saturday, set a best time of 1m 39.701s. That is already under the official race record, but one-second off Lorenzo's own pole record from 2008.

Both Lorenzo and Pedrosa are former Jerez MotoGP winners.

After an inspiring Yamaha return in Qatar, then a forgettable weekend in Texas, the return to familiar European territory suited Valentino Rossi, who moved steadily up the timesheets to third position, 0.366s from Pedrosa.

Rossi finished second fastest to Cal Crutchlow at the pre-season Jerez test and the Englishman, the leading satellite rider so far this year, again took the fight to the factory riders. Crutchlow was as high as second this morning, on his way to a close fourth place, +0.412s.

The home Spanish riders currently fill the top three places in the 2013 title standings. Lorenzo and Pedrosa's rookie team-mate Marc Marquez - who became MotoGP's youngest ever winner last time in Austin - are tied at the top, with Pedrosa eight points back in third.

Marquez, who experienced his toughest winter test at Jerez, was no higher than tenth for much of the session - then climbed the order to claim fifth (+0.784s). The Moto2 champion was the final rider within one-second of Lorenzo.

Nicky Hayden, beaten by new team-mate Andrea Dovizioso in the opening events of the year, made a positive start to the European campaign with sixth place (+1.021s). Satellite Honda riders Stefan Bradl and Alvaro Bautista followed, plus ever impressive top CRT rider Aleix Espargaro (Aspar), with Dovizioso completing a top ten covered by 1.023s.

Close behind Dovi on the timesheets was Pramac's lone rider Andrea Iannone and wild-card Michele Pirro.

Former Gresini CRT racer and current Ducati test rider Pirro is making the first of three 2013 wild-card appearances for Ducati. The Italian, who is race-testing a new chassis and engine management system, was 1.625s from the top in opening practice.

Pramac Ducati's Ben Spies is missing the event in order to undergo further rehabilitation on his shoulder. The Texan has not been replaced. Pirro's status remains as a wild-card in order to test the new parts, rather than use Spies' engines.

Tech 3 rookie Bradley Smith was the slowest of the manufacturer riders in 17th, with Cardion AB's Karel Abraham 22nd on his return from a broken collarbone. PBM's Michael Laverty rounded out the 24 rider field.

As a Spies fan going back to AMA it's really tough to watch him get sidetracked like this. I'd say get well soon but if I only have one wish for him it would be that he have a big pile of really good luck. Talent, toughness and physical fitness he has in spades.  It's bad luck and Bridgestones that are doing him in......

Laguna Seca MotoGP Ducati Island 2013 | Vicki's View Photo Gallery of the weekend | MARKER RACING  ARGENTINA SPEED | Scoop.it

Laguna Seca. It's a favorite of the GP riders and the fans as well. In a 2013 season that has produced weather drama, crash drama, injury drama and tire drama, Laguna doles out just plain great racing, year after year. It's also the home of the biggest, most ambitious Ducati Island anywhere in the world and for me, 4 days of beautiful, "Kodak moments" all ringed in Ducati Red. Join me for a look at Laguna Seca MotoGP and especially, the people, bikes and passion, of Ducati Island Laguna Seca!

Ben Spies apologizes to Carlo Pernat

Ben Spies apologizes to Carlo Pernat | MARKER RACING  ARGENTINA SPEED | Scoop.it

(translated by Google)

After the crime, the apology. Hoping that it is not just crocodile tears. Ben Spies and his mother Mary made a call last night to Carlo Pernat , the subject of a comment infangante posted on Twitter by the Texan in recent days. " Ben and his mom called me - confirms the Genoese manager - and we talked for a long time. I gladly accepted their apologies, for me the matter is closed . " Pernat reacted with elegance in an act condemned by the whole paddock and the Ducati in the first place.

Yesterday the justifications to the act were multiple and contradictory to each other . The first was that Ben was under the effects of anesthesia, although the tweet in reference to the transaction was the next day. Then, through Superbikeplanet , Mary Spies has declared puzzled by the fact that that message had been awarded to her or her son. He also added that Ben had not at that moment the phone with him, and even though he had written it on marine biotoxins in Pernat would not be so obvious. Even the child would know six Carlo, does not specify whether it is his habit then name them all publicly with unflattering terms.

Builder Interview: AreteAmericana 999 Italia | Vicki's View Blog on Ducati.net | MARKER RACING  ARGENTINA SPEED | Scoop.it

Every big Ducati event weekend there’s always a standout bike people leave the track talking about and Laguna Seca was no exception.  What was interesting about the bike that stood out a few weeks ago onLaguna Seca Ducati Island was that under normal circumstances, in a literal sea of Ducati’s, a 999 Superbike would be just another nice bike among hundreds of other nice bikes.  But this 999 stopped people in their tracks.  Subtle and elegant, the AreteAmericana 999 Italia is a lovely piece of work.  It’s also clearly a professional build. One look at the 848 swingarm and the beautiful custom seat treatment and it had my attention (as well as a good bit of respect)  so I decided to follow up with Bryan Peterson, who built it, to learn a bit more about this interesting bike, and how it came to be....
