The Stoner/Ducati combination is the dream combo for me. I think he has been the only rider in modern times to be able to master a ducati gp bike. Pity it is only as a test rider role but lets hope that role pays off.

I don't think we can much into day 1 of the first official test of 2016 epically at that track. I can't wait to see Stoner on the GP15 Ducati.

3 day test from Phillip Island underway, or at least it would be if it wasn't raining.
And Happy Birthday Rossi

Not sure what we learn't from that test, other than it rains a lot at Phillip Island and they we will probably see Stoner back at Qatar and possibly in the first race to replace Danilo Petrucci who has a broken hand.

Lots of crashes at the test, luckily most seemed to get anyway without any injuries. Ducati & some rookies showing good pace.

Lorenzo on pole from Marquez & Vinales.

Rossi 5th, he's also signed a 2 year extension to his contract with Yamaha, so that should see him racing until the end of the 2018 season

A very eventful weekend in Argentina & that's even without taking the tyre issue in MotoGP into consideration

A 25 second lead for Pawi in the Moto 3 class.

Marquez takes the win in MotoGP, Rossi takes 2nd after the two factory Ducatis crash out at the final turn, Pedrosa takes 3rd & Lavery 4th :IRISH:
Great battle between Rossi & Marquez in the 1st part of the race before the mandatory bike change, pity it ended. Lorenzo, Miller & plenty others crashed out, Redding was unlucky to have a mechanical, without that he would probably have been on the podium instead of Pedrosa, IF doesn't count in motorsport though

Roll on Austin next weekend

Another victory for Marquez in the USA, Lorenzo takes second from Iannone, plenty of fallers though including Rossi Perdosa takes out Dovi, Crutchlow & Smith also crash out.

Great result for Lowes in Moto2.
