MotoGP Season Opener: Qatar

In all the excitement of the 200, I failed to post about the MotoGP season’s beginnings.

MotoGP is the Grand Prix of motorcycles. You can’t go out to the local Ducati or Honda dealer and buy one of these things. You need to have a World class rider, sponsors and a HUGE line of credit for these million dollar babies. The MotoGP series uses pretty much the same venues as WSBK with a stop in California at Laguna Seca.

Here’s the results of Round 1:

1 Casey Stoner Ducati Marlboro Team Ducati
2 Jorge Lorenzo Fiat Yamaha Team Yamaha
3 Dani Pedrosa Repsol Honda Team Honda
4 Andrea Dovizioso JiR Scot Team Honda
5 Valentino Rossi Fiat Yamaha Team Yamaha
6 James Toseland Yamaha Tech 3 Yamaha
7 Colin Edwards Yamaha Tech 3 Yamaha
8 Loris Capirossi Rizla Suzuki MotoGP Suzuki
9 Randy De Puniet LCR Honda MotoGP Honda
10 Nicky Hayden Repsol Honda Team Honda

Only 1 Ducati in the top 10 this time but you might notice he won, and he’s the reigning World Champ.

Remember, in racing there really isn’t a second place, just a first loser, but you still get points.

Next weekend……. The American LeMans Series 12 hours of Sebring Sportscar race and…….. F1.

Are we having fun yet???
