Itís been a good few years for Spanish sport with Spaniards ranking every bit as well in the MotoGP as they have in the football. Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo have now been joined by Marc Marquez in making up the top three of the 2013 world standings. Only Rossi and Stoner previously seemed capable of breaking the Spanish monopoly, but Stoner is now retired and Rossi is possibly past his best.
The recent Mugello meet saw Lorenzo creep towards the top of the table by defeating his nearest rival, Pedrosa. Pedrosa has fallen strangely short of winning the title in the past, and it may come down to a test of nerve for a rider who may feel like fortune is against him. Many would say that the smart betting money is on Lorenzo to retain the title with generous odds of around 7/5 as oppos..... [read more]

Go-Karts on Steroids
I have been an avid road racer for several years. I began racing 125cc ShifterKarts in 1997. These Go-Karts on steroids can go 130mph with 0-60 in under 4 seconds. Last july I attended a race at Putnam Park,In. this 2 mile road course is very fast and tricky. I started the race in 20th position, had moved up to 5th when The **** hit the fan. Going into a tight right hander, about 60mph the 3rd and 4th place guys got into each other and came across the track in front of me. I had no where to go, and blasted the guy in the rear. I remember the tail of my Kart coming off the ground, as it slamed me on to the asphalt track. I came out of the Kart, at that point and was ran into by another racer. That impact shattered my helmet as well as my left collar bone, and right wrist.I tumbled several times before coming to a stop in the grass.I lost track of time. It seemed as if the ambulance was there waiting for me.When I stood up I realalized I could not walk. My right ankle was also broken. I crawled past my trashed Kart and made it to the ambulance.They took me to a local hospital. I might as well been taken to witch doctors!. These people failed to notice my severly broken ankle, or that I had a serious concusion. They offed me pain pills wich I refused. You see, I was not the only one In my Group. My 16 year old son and a friend was also with me. My son Had witnesed the whole thing and was very concerned. Some competitors at the track helped my son get my equipment packed up , and brought my him to the hospital.He was glad to see me in one peice(sort of). I then was faced six hour drive ahead of me.I had to stop 3 times on the way home because of the pain.I knew I had to get those kids home,so I just kept going!.Well, in hind site , I would do it all over again!. My first race back was in January at Daytona International Speedway. I started 35th of 40 , and went to 3rd on the first lap. I ran as high as 2nd till I made a mistake wich left me in 5th spot.My son was there with me and we were fairly happy with the results( We should have had a top 3) A fried of mine told me " you never know how fast your going , till you fall off!" I say " **** happens!" lets go racing!!! ..... [read more xsession files]
