Estoril MotoGP- Results included
« on: May 01, 2011, 05:07:12 pm »
Today was a good race. I am very impressed with how HRC has developed from last year to this one. They ended up having 3 bikes in the top 4 spots.  The pass that Dovi made on Rossi at the line really showed hot the Honda can drive to the line and then the pass made by Pedrosa on Lorenzo with just 2 laps left was very impressive. I felt bad that Spies had to retire early but that's racing. Over all great race and im excited for the French GP in just 2 weeks.

1. Dani Pedrosa, Spain (Hon RC212V), 28 laps, 45:51.483, 95.198 mph
2. Jorge Lorenzo, Spain (Yam YZR-M1), -3.051 seconds
3. Casey Stoner, Australia (Hon RC212V), -7.658
4. Andrea Dovizioso, Italy (Hon RC212V), -16.530
5. Valentino Rossi, Italy (Duc GP11), -16.555
6. Colin Edwards, USA (Yam YZR-M1), -32.575
7. Hiroshi Aoyama, Japan (Hon RC212V), -38.749
8. Cal Crutchlow, Great Britain (Yam YZR-M1), -40.912
9. Nicky Hayden, USA (Duc GP11), -54.887
10. Randy De Puniet, France (Duc GP11), -59.697
11. Toni Elias, Spain (Hon RC212V), -60.374
12. Loris Capirossi, Italy (Duc GP11), -61.793
13. Alvaro Bautista, Spain (Suz GSV-R), -84.370

Did I hear right and this is coming to the F1 track they are building down here in Austin, Tx? 

Sounds like I may have a new local event for the club.  If we can afford it.

It may be a good excuse to take a trip back to Austin!  :)

MotoGP will be in Texas starting in 2013 along with the F1 crowd. Ben Spies & Colin Edwards
will really have a "home" round then.

On the news the other day they showed them actually moving dirt out there so I guess this IS happening.  Kind of cool, again if we normal people can afford it.
