Moto GP 2016 Round 16 Phillip Island ***SPOILER***

What a crazy turn of events we saw in Motegi, i mean to see both Yams go down, i was shocked!! congrats once again to Marc what a season he had, what a smart season he had. I'd still love to see Vale get his 10th before calling in quits, going to be very hard esp next year with Maverick riding the way he has been.. On to PI, prob my fav track, will we see Gaven the seagul make an appearance again? :P Get well soon to Dani , also i believe Iannone is out for this one as well.. too bad

About the circuit

Phillip Island, the self-styled home of Australian motorsport, is steeped in motor racing tradition, with the first car races having been held there on public roads in the 1920s. The first motorcycle races took place in 1931 and a permanent track was built in 1956. The circuit fell into disrepair during the late 70s and early 80s until it was bought in 1985 and given a AUS $5m facelift. MotoGP returned in 1989 and 1990 before becoming a regular fixture once more from 1997 onwards.

The Phillip Island circuit is blessed with breathtaking scenery and beautiful ocean views and, as one of the fastest, most fluid, tracks on the calendar, it continues to provide some of the most spectacular racing in the MotoGP season.

Glad to hear!!


MotoGP Australia: Hayden in for Pedrosa at Phillip Island
18 October 2016

'It's pretty emotional for me to even think about it and I'm very grateful for this opportunity and the trust that Honda gives me' - Nicky Hayden.
Former MotoGP world champion Nicky Hayden will replace the injured Dani Pedrosa in the Repsol Honda team at Phillip Island.

Pedrosa is recovering after sustaining a broken collarbone in a huge high-side during practice for the Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi.

Honda World Superbike rider Hayden, who filled in for Jack Miller at Aragon in the Marc VDS team, says he is delighted to have the chance to return to 'my old dream team', with Hayden previously clinching the MotoGP title for Repsol Honda in 2006.

“First of all my best wishes to Dani, I'm sure he will come back stronger than ever like he always does,” Hayden said. “For me it's crazy hard work but it's a chance, ten year after winning my World Title, to get back to my old dream team!

“Doing a weekend in Phillip Island on a factory Honda, it's pretty emotional for me to even think about it and I'm very grateful for this opportunity and the trust that Honda gives me. I want also to thank my current team for allowing me to go and do this and the sponsors.

“Everybody worked a lot on every detail to make it possible for me so now I'm excited to get on a plane, to get down to Phillip Island and hopefully I can do a good job for the team,” he added.

“Regarding Phillip Island there are two things to always consider, the weather and the tyres but it's a track I love and I can't wait to ride the bike there. Let's get started on Friday morning and go forward.”

Meanwhile, Pedrosa has left the Universitari Dexeus Hospital, where he underwent successful surgery to his right collarbone last Saturday. He will have a follow-up appointment with his doctors on Wednesday

MotoGP Australia: Marquez: The shackles have been removed!
18 October 2016

'It's fantastic to arrive at Phillip Island with no pressure for the championship as the track is one of my favourites' - Marc Marquez.
Newly-crowned MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez will be going all out for victory at Phillip Island with the pressure of clinching the title now lifted from his shoulders.

Marquez, who edged Jorge Lorenzo for the win last year in Australia, is bidding for a third premier class victory on the trot following his wins at Aragon and again last weekend at Motegi in Japan, where he wrapped up his third MotoGP crown after Movistar Yamaha riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo both dramatically crashed out.

“It's fantastic to arrive at Phillip Island with no pressure for the championship as the track is one of my favourites in the calendar along with Austin and Aragon. It's so fast and flowing and you really have a lot of fun riding there,” said the Repsol Honda rider.

“One of the main issues to take into account there is the weather. It's usually very cold during this period of the year and always windy, something that you feel a lot, especially at the end of the final straight. You have to find a setup to make the bike as stable as possible.

“We'll try to win some more races before the end of the year as there are also the Constructors and the Team titles to think of.”

Marquez will be joined in the team by 2006 world champion Nicky Hayden, who has been called in to replace the injured Dani Pedrosa.

I'll be making the pilgrimage to the island with the other 1000s of riders to worship the gods of speed this Sunday.
There will be cops and speed traps every 100m all the way there.

Slow and Scared

That would be awesome to see Stoner dominate @ PI like he always does on a Duc.

I'm really thinking Hayden will do well. I'm predicting 7th or better. =)

Now that I don't require my 100% focus on Rossi, I have invited a few people over to watch this weekend. I am even going to make a MotoGP cake if I have the time. It kind of feels like a huge let down once someone has taken the championship doesn't it. Ohhhh well there's always next year sigh.....

Looking forward to seeing Hayden riding if the coverage shows him.

Rossi penalised after FP1 tyre mistake

9-time World Champion finds speed in first practice before a penalty from Race Direction as FP2 gets cut short in torrential rain

Tags MotoGP, 2016, MICHELIN® AUSTRALIAN MOTORCYCLE GRAND PRIX, FP2, Valentino Rossi, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP, #AustralianGP, Reaction
Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) had good pace in a wet FP1 at Phillip Island, before the Italian was given a penalty by Race Direction for using one of the allocated Michelin wet tyres for more than the allowed 10 laps of distance. The Yamaha rider’s laptimes set on his longer run were then deleted – leaving him P20 on the combined timesheets and at risk of losing the chance to head through to Q2 should FP3 prove too wet to improve pace. The Italian is happy to have had a good feeling in the first session however, and is eager to carry on working tomorrow.
Valentino Rossi (P20): “The conditions were very difficult today. Unfortunately we had bad weather, it was very cold and there was lots of water. This morning we were able to ride for 20 minutes in acceptable conditions and it wasn‘t so bad, I was quite strong. In the afternoon the temperature went down and the amount of water was too much, so unfortunately we couldn‘t ride. We couldn‘t work on the feeling on the bike so we keep the quite good feeling we had at the beginning of the practice, but at the same time we lost the heat, so we have to wait for tomorrow."

MotoGP FP2 session delayed and then cancelled after 15-minutes due to torrential rain at Phillip Island.

Only six riders set a lap time this afternoon, all of which were significantly slower than in FP1.

Valentino Rossi's best morning lap times were cancelled due to a 'technical infringement', after exceeding the maximum number of laps (10) set by Michelin for the extra-soft wet front tyre.

That means the Italian will now go into Saturday just 20th on combined times, having been 2nd quickest on the extra-soft front.

Only the top ten riders after FP3 receive direct access to Qualifying 2. It is not yet clear if FP2 will be restarted on Saturday morning, or simply abandoned.

UPDATE: FP3 will be extended by 15-minutes to compensate for the loss of FP2 track time.

Nicky Hayden is making his second MotoGP appearance of the season - this time returning to the Repsol Honda team with which he won the 2006 world championship, as a replacement for the injured Dani Pedrosa.

Hector Barbera is riding for the factory Ducati team in place of the injured Andrea Iannone for the second week in succession, with 2015 Australian SBK champion Mike Jones in-turn keeping the Avintia seat for his home race...

CRAZY FP3 session!! rain, no rain, wet track, dry line, heavy rain.... nuts, First time i think ever both Factor Yams off the top 10, Maverick also missing out.

MotoGP » MotoGP Australia - Free Practice (3) Results 22 October 2016
Free Practice (3) results from the 2016 Australian MotoGP at Phillip Island, round 16 of 18.
Marc Marquez set the best lap of the Australian MotoGP weekend so far to lead a frantic Free Practice 3 at Phillip Island, ahead of home star Jack Miller.

A drying track combined with intermittent rain showers, meant the full spectrum of tyre options - wets, intermediates and slicks (including Miller), plus an inter front/slick rear mix (including Marquez) - were seen on track this morning.

The session was extended from 45 to 60mins to help compensate for the cancellation of Friday afternoon's FP2 session, due to bad weather.

Only the top ten riders after FP3 (combined times) receive direct access to the second and final part of this afternoon's qualifying session.

The likes of Maverick Vinales, Valentino Rossi, Cal Crutchlow and Jorge Lorenzo were all caught out by the changing weather and must take part in Qualifying 1. At least two of those names will start Sunday's race from outside the top twelve, with only two transfer places available in the Q1 session.

Nicky Hayden is making his second MotoGP appearance of the season - this time returning to the Repsol Honda team with which he won the 2006 world championship, as a replacement for the injured Dani Pedrosa.

Hector Barbera is riding for the factory Ducati team in place of the injured Andrea Iannone for the second week in succession, with 2015 Australian SBK champion Mike Jones in-turn keeping the Avintia seat for his home race...

Thoughts on Hernandez moving back to Moto2? Does he become an instant title contender? Moto2 is a control class, so I think he might have to be a favorite, and if he doesn't live up to it, he might be out of MotoGP altogether.

WOW crazy moto 3 crash filled race, Binder takes it, Moto 2 Luthi. Moto GP Marc was running away w it, and lost the front into turn 4, said it was totally my fault, i braked too late. he had nothing to worry about re the championship, he is fine. Cal Cal Cal, takes the win!! Vale very impressive second as well as Vin for P3

Crutchlow blitzes Phillip Island for win number 2
Marquez crashes out, Rossi storms up from P15 – but Crutchlow keeps his cool for an incredible second career victory
Tags MotoGP, 2016, MICHELIN® AUSTRALIAN MOTORCYCLE GRAND PRIX, RAC
Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda) has taken a stunning second GP win at Phillip Island, as the Brit kept calm and kept his gap at the front ahead of P2 finisher Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), with Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Maverick Viñales completing the podium.

There were no miracle starts for those frontrunners starting further back for the Australian GP, with Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) getting the best from P12 to move up to P9, and teammate Valentino Rossi gaining two places to P13 – with Maverick Viñales moving up only one. It was Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) who got the holeshot P3 on the front row, with polesitter Marquez the biggest loser off the line – before the 2016 MotoGP™ World Champion swept back around the outside of Doohan Corner to take back P2 and then fight off Espargaro through Lukey Heights and down into T10. Once at the front, the Motegi and Aragon winner set off in his rhythm – soon seconds clear.

The fight for P2 between Crutchlow and Aleix Espargaro (Team Suzuki Ecstar) saw the Brit emerge on top, as Rossi was charging through the field – picking off Pol Espargaro and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) as the rider from Tavullia entered podium contention, then setting his sights on Aleix Espargaro and soon getting past.

Nearly three seconds clear at the front, there was suddenly a Repsol Honda sliding through the gravel at Turn 4 – and Marc Marquez was out of the Michelin® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

Crutchlow then found himself in the lead, hoping the 2014 flashback for Marquez wouldn’t touch him after a last lap crash two years ago – as Rossi began his hunt for the LCR machine, over two seconds back but on an amazing roll from P15 on the grid. As the British rider continued pulling away, Rossi than got a warning shot at Turn 4 that saw him run deep and lose ground, as the new fight for the final podium spot saw Aleix Espargaro locked in battle with Dovizioso – and Viñales soon getting involved.

After swapping positions in a three-way fight, Turn 4 then claimed another victim as Aleix Espargaro lost his Suzuki machine with 5 laps to go, and teammate Viñales broke the resolve of Dovizioso to take the final place on the podium and head the Italian home.

After his storming start, Pol Espargaro took a solid result as he crossed the line in P5, ahead of a struggling Jorge Lorenzo – who was unable to make up big ground after his good start.

Further back saw Scott Redding and Danilo Petrucci (Octo Pramac Yakhnich) leading a seven rider fight for P7 of home hero Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS), Hector Barbera (Ducati Team), Stefan Bradl (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini), Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) and Nicky Hayden.

‘Kentucky Kid’ Hayden, standing in for injured Dani Pedrosa at Repsol Honda, put in an impressive one-off return to his 2006 championship winning colours as he battled well within the points, before Miller took Turn 4 a little overenthusiastically and Hayden was the casualty, sliding out.

Hector Barbera was another crasher, leaving Redding to lead compatriot Bradley Smith over the line for P7, with the top ten completed by Petrucci and Miller. As well as the solid result for Miller, fellow Australian Mike Jones scored a point on his Avintia Racing machine as he replaced Hector Barbera, impressing once again.

Another Independent Team win in 2016, another win for Cal Crutchlow, and a little glimpse of the old Marquez. A fight back from outside the top ten to make the podium – for both the bikes who crossed the line behind the Brit – and some spectacular racing at Phillip Island once again. Next up is Sepang International Circuit – and another chapter of an incredible 2016.

Bummer marquez crashed, I was even more upset Nicky and Jack Miller had an incident I really wanted to see Nicky finish that race, he had the pace to get a decent finish all things considered.

When I saw Nicky and Miller tangle live, I thought it was a bad move on Miller's part. He carried a lot of initial entry speed, and while he maintained a line after the contact, I'm not so sure that if they hadn't touched, Miller would have been able to avoid going wide. At no point, from entry to Nicky going down, was Miller's wheel in front of Hayden's. I know Petrucci has called for a penalty, and I don't know if I disagree with him.

On another note, there have been several "quick" restarts this year following the new guidelines, and Dorna has got to address the restarts. Riders are getting penalized on the restart grid, it's chaos in the pits, and there's nothing "quick" about them. I don't think I've seen a "quick" restart this season where somebody didn't get penalized and have to restart from the back of the grid.

John McPhee will be staying in Australia for at least a month, following his crash in Moto3. From his FB page:

Following further tests in the St. Kilda Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, they have now found that both of John's lungs were perforated in the crash and he has lost around 40% of their function at present. He has been told this will heal naturally but it will take some weeks to regain their performance.

He can exercise gently to help their healing and has a further appointment in two weeks to check progress. At this time, they are now suggesting he will not be able to fly for four to five weeks. So will get an enforced holiday down under!

Today John's parents have driven him upcountry to the specialist who will operate on his thumb and make additional checks as the further tests have also shown some displacement of other bones in his hand.

He is staying positive, but is naturally very frustrated that his recovery will take some time. He will not only miss the last two races this year, just when his crew had really got the Peugeot performing at its best, but may now be excluded from end of season tests to prepare for next year.

John will be posting on here when he can, but for now - thank you all so much for your messages of support - it means a huge amount to him!

Finally got to catch the races from Phillip Island. Glad it looks like McPhee should make a recovery. It looked way worse and watching him tumble down the hill seemingly unconscious had my jaw on the floor.

Awesome photo finish in Moto2 even though it looks like no one wants to win the Moto2 championship. Wish Rins would've finished and picked up points, would've made the last rounds even that more interesting.

Sucked to see MM93 crash out but glad Cal is rebounding from his horrid first half of the season to be successful so far this second half. I liked the back and forth he and Rossi had after the race, looked like Rossi flicked Cal off jokingly.
