Yes, 2012 MotoGP starts this weekend with the opening race at Losail Circuit at Qatar with the Commercialbank Grand Prix of Qatar. It doesn’t really come as a surprise that the Repsol Honda’s running the night show at the first 2 day’s testing. Casey Stoner won several times the race and he likes the track.
Against the economic crisis, fuel costs, engines will be switched back from 800 cc to 1000 cc. That means all bikes will run this season with a 4 stroke engine. There are plenty of new rules coming with the new engines and not only rules but also some promising Rookies. Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda) moves up to the premier class as the 2011 Moto2 champion. Here we go, another german rider after Alex Hoffmann left MotoGP – I guess 2 years ago.
Let’s start the season with the opening race of the 2012 MotoGP at Losail/Qata on Sunday.
