MotoGP '07....a thing of the past...

Post by <T-K> » Mon Nov 07, 2005 7:51 pm

The Ducati Marlboro Team has reached agreement with Sete Gibernau to contest the 2006 MotoGP World Championship. The Spanish rider will join Loris Capirossi, and is highly optimistic about his future after Capirossi's fantastic victories on the Ducati at the recent Japanese and Malaysian GPs...

i couldnt agree more.....but what makes it more interesting for me is that it will be my two favourite riders racing for the same team, i will finally see the better of the two..............NOW, if i could only get Pablo and D.C on the the same team then it would complete the picture. 8)

Casey Stoner has been linked with the Pons Honda Team for next seasons Moto GP. According to the Sydney Morning Herald negotiations are "at an advanced stage". The story states that he is most likely to replace the "under performing Max Biaggi".

Sito Pons has announced that the team is not going to enter this year, citing "financial reasons ". Casey Stoner will be one very cranky kangaroo Racer :cry:

Honda have stated their ambitions for the 2006 season, saying that they wish to "Secure the Championship in every category..."

Is that not a little over-confident?? :?

Will Sito Pons come back to the main game next year ? Correct me if I am wrong, is he not the most successful team manager in MotoGP ?
