Sometimes all you need is a gallery of images to remedy another torrid Monday, so how about KTM’s 2017 RC16 shot by the insanely talented Sebas Romero? Launched today, just down the road from its factory in Mattighofen, KTM unveiled 2017’s colours and already look set to win this season’s sexiest bike competition, although we’re not entirely sure who the… Read more →

2017 Isle of Man TT is already awesome…

You’ve gotta love Wednesdays: the midweek hump day that provides unconditional dubplate news, strategically published under embargo in the UK’s largest journal. We had not one, but two announcements yesterday. To everyone’s amazement, northern tea drinker, Guy Martin is making a racing comeback alongside John McGuinness in the official Honda Racing squad aboard the new SP2. The lure of a… Read more →

British Motorsport ‘Could End’ Due To EU Ruling

Vnuk. A seemingly innocent four-letter acronym. It’s not. This one is basted in doom and misery, and it’s not even an FLA. This week, the government issued a document for public consultation with an option to implement the European Court’s decision involving the ‘Vnuk judgment.’ The Vnuk judgment imposes compulsory third party injury and damage insurance to all vehicles used… Read more →

Photo Spesh: Viñales triggers beast mode at Valencia Test

Happy New Year! 2017 starts now, well, it started on Tuesday in Valencia and the happiest man leaving the test must have been Maverick Viñales.

Brad Binder: “Racing bikes, you get more pussy than anyone”

MotoGP is brewing nicely in 2016: new race winners, records being smashed left, right and centre, entertainment throughout all classes and a genuine British resurgence.

Panigale Highside

As some already know, I’m not racing at Brands Hatch this weekend due to personal reasons (intensive care, kids, and shit). However, that hasn’t halted the P&H Motorcycles/Carl Cox Motorsport team providing high-class entertainment in the Ducati TriOptions Cup, with my team-mate, Leon Morris launching a naughty highside while exiting Clearways. There have been very few highsides in the Ducati… Read more →

2016 Ducati TriOptions Cup Rd1: Silverstone

Racing, oh how I’ve missed you. Those long, derelict winter months have whizzed by and we could have done with a few extra weeks until the first 2016 British Superbike round at Silverstone. A hectic pre-season schedule involving zero pre-season testing (and budget) isn’t an ideal scenario, but that’s life. Although there was the obvious task of representing P&H/Carl Cox… Read more →
