No Thai moto gp champion...How come? 2009 moto gp thread


layow

Recommended Posts

I dont understand how a country like thailand hasn't produced a top line motocyc racer.

 

When you look at how much (99%???) of the male population start riding at an early age,

that they are crazy and have a no fear attitude, it seems strange.

 

Australia has a very small motorcycle rider base to draw from but we come up with great riders all the time

even to the shame of the USA and the Brits, little own a country of a similar population!

 

There is money around for motorcycle racing in thailand

 

Yes they've got Ratthapark Wilairot running around in the soon to be defunct 250 gp's

but he not going to win a 250 race and is really there because of thai money.

 

I would love to see it happen, I think the thais as a nation would find it a uniting force (which they need atm)

Australia has found its world presence and pride thru sport more than anything else.

 

If there was some thai beating stoner, hayden or toseland and even rossi

You would see people dancing on the streets .

 

Comments opinions?

thanks for the reply

 

thought i was going to turn up another blank thread!!! :)

 

yeah 8th is good

 

but its not much different from 8th to 18th just a better bike and tires...imo

the test is does he win in the wet when power and tires dont come into play as much?

 

unfortunately no

and don't get me wrong

i would love to see him or another thai upfront

I would like to see another Aussie upfront. Casey Stoner will be the man with Rossi a distant second. :P

Motorbike GP is dominated by Italians, Spainish, Japanese, with a sprinkling of Australians, Yanks and Brits. DORNA have little interest in promoting Thai riders because the TV advertising revenue, sponsors and big cc motorbike sales are small compared to more developed markets.

Because of lack of presence of British riders, DORNA (MotoGP organisers) gave special backing to Smith, Webb and Redding - I would doubt this would happen for a Thai rider, but that is the only way. Being a crazy fast motorcycle taxi rider is a long way from making it in MotoGP.

from the last race

5 italians

4 spanish

2 ozzies (3 last year)

2 yanks

1 everyone else including japanese

 

Wouldn't call it domination as such maybe with the lower cc classes included

but who cares who won the last few 125 championships other than

if they make their mark in the main class

i do and follow it nit noi.

 

Yes riders get places based on their marketability and the thai market is zero

but the oz market is very very small compared with most others like france or germany japan etc.

and true its easier to market a fast ozzie than a fast thai to europe or even japan.

so theres some agreement there

 

Being a crazy fast motorcycle taxi rider is a long way from making it in MotoGP.

not really my point, which is, that the talent pool of young guys able to ride a bike fast

is large in los and that with that pool they should have been able to produce/find someone fast enough

to make it into motogp or it predecessors.

all imo and speculation of course

cheers

 

ps congrat to stoner 7.77 sec win is a nice way to start :Question:

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
