    It's a lesson on how to make a flat paddock interesting. Tilke should take note.

    But it was also much, much better 20 years ago.

    Absolutely. Assen was fun to watch back in the day.

    Rossi has announced his retirement at the end of this year.

    It’s truly the end of an era.

    Rossi has been the dominate figure for so many years. Until the last few years he was the dominant force in wins and championships. For the whole time he has been the dominant person in terms of fans and popularity - there would be few sports where someone has been that popular.
    A few things have soured his reputation but its hard to go past his record and his charm. As much as Ive admired people like Doohan and Stoner, they were extremely dull personalities. Rossi brought back a joy that hadn't been seen for probably 2 decades.
    Sad to see him go but the show can't go on forever.

    Jorge Martin set a new lap record this weekend for MotoGP, just 2+ seconds off the ELMS LMP2 pole time!

    It’s insane how fast F1 cars are around these tracks.

    Ugh, damn DVR ran stopped recording with more than a dozen laps left.

    And NBC does not have the show available for replay on their apps.

    I guess I'll be getting VideoPass again next year...

    Yeah a 30 min stoppage will do that.
    Luckily we have it on free to air tv, although its only the main race, no other classes or qualifying.

    Interesting that top 5 was 5 different manufacturers - that's rare.

    Kind of a boring race all in all. Miller spiked himself again. I keep waiting for Marc to come back to form but I think that ship has sailed.

    Yamaha has pulled Meverick Vinales from the next round of MotoGP due to “unexplained irregular operation of the motorcycle” with the potential to cause engine damage on the last few laps of the Styrian Grand Prix, which they found after analysis of the ECU telemetry.

    Witnesses (photographers I think) at the track reported that they heard the engine being continuously revved to the limiter on a number of occasions.

    Basically Vinales has the shits and was rev-bombing it to try and break it, so the team is suspending him for one race.
