MotoGP 2021 season

Postby Kwacky » 22 Jan 2021, 14:44

Austin and Argentina have been dropped. Officially they're postponed. Qatar is having back to back races instead. Portimao is hosting a race on 18th April.

Russia is no longer a reserve circuit. Indonesia is still a reserve.

Looks like the season starts in Qatar on 28 March.

Tech 3 2021 livery. No sponsors so i reckon it will look better than the Factory KTM.

The lock wiring on that back wheel close up photo is atrocious, I've always been horrified by lock wire jobs I'd seen at track days but expected much better from a MotoGP team. If a tech had lock wired like that on an aircraft and I was over signing the job, it would get cut and he'd have had to do it again.

What should it look like?? --- on the few aircraft wiring pics I pulled up real quick to try & get an idea, the wiring just looked even scragglier than on the bike, if anything. So I'm obviously looking at the wrong pics.

I think its fair to assume we won't see Lorenzo anywhere near the Motogp paddock again.

He was pictured sunning himself in the Maldives this last few days. Funny how having loads of cash means you can ignore all the restrictions that most of the rest of the world have to adhere too.

Have you noticed how flat the bikes stay now on starts? The front barely lifts.

There are plenty of new aerodynamics being tested in Qatar too

There is lost of speculation regarding the Ducati aeros being tested including the use of ground effect.

This article also references cleaning up the air behind the bike to prevent following ridesr getting a tow. Interesting stuff.
