    I kind of fell out of love with Moto GP last season. I’m going to watch the race this afternoon and hopefully I’ll remember why I used to like the sport so much!

    It’s on at the perfect time tonight, 9:30PM. I think I’ll lay in bed and watch this one!

    AAAAACK, poor simoncelli, ah well. Come on Dani!

    EDIT

    Ah I don’t like Lorenzo much, ahh well, Stoner out boo.

    Last season was pretty good I thought despite Lorenzo’s dominance, I’m hoping for a Honda champion this year though!

    5 mins ago: Great race so far – 4 fighting for the lead with 4 differant teams, and a privateer leading!

    3 mins ago: Race slightly spoilled, two contenders crash out early…

    Now: Oh dear… Privateer leader mucks up and crashes out…

    Free win for Lorenzo…

    Dani’s making time on him, much prefer Pedrosa. COME ON DANI!

    Shame we can’t get this in HD.

    EDIT

    Dammit, Lorenzo’s responded. Looks like the arrogant sod could be safe.

    EDIT 2

    Turned into a boring race.

    Wow about time MototGP got good, all be it with the help of rain…

    What was Rossi doing?…Poor Stoner.

    I preferred the BTCC though to be honest.

    Great race. Only problem is that Pedrosa didn’t win, I’m not a big fan of Lorenzo, it was nice to see Nicky Hayden get a podium.

    What a race! The initial laps were wonderful, then Super Sic fell :(

    From then on there was no action but I knew someone was going to fall every lap, so the tension was high.
