Free Yamaha Racing School through Yamaha of Europe
March 1st - After last year’s success, the Yamaha Race Training (YRT) is coming back. The 2005 YRT will be held from March 20th to March 23rd at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia, Spain. The YRT is set up once again to help the pre-season preparations and improve the knowledge of the technical set-up and machine tuning of the 2003/2004/2005 YZF-R6 and the 2004/2005 YZF-R1, equipped with (certain) YEC kit parts.

Unfortunately, for Yamaha racers in America, Yamaha USA does not want to acknowlede the school, nor do they offer through American dealers any of the full range of official Yamaha Racing factory parts for the R1/R6 sportbikes and YZF motocross bikes. It is a sad state of affairs due to the product liability and persoanl injury lawsuit climatehere in America that most of the Japanese manufacturers in America do not want to be directly associated with assisting customers to go roadracing in any way from sponsoring track riding schools to selling you the factory racing parts that are readily available from distributors in european countries. The brave exception to this is US Suzuki GSXR Champiuonship Finals. It's just one more reason why the U.S. based motorcycle distributors are helping the AMA Pro Racing with The Decline of Motorcycle Roadracing in America.

Yamaha Race Training (YRT) is:
• For SUPERSPORT, SUPERBIKE & SUPERSTOCK teams with race license, racing the 2003/2004/2005 YZF-R6 and 2004/2005 YZF-R1 ONLY!

• A 3- day Race Training, including theoretical sessions and practical education at racetrack on how to set-up and tune the bike.

• It’s organised by Yamaha Motor Europe – education and advise given by race engineers from Yamaha Japan, Yamaha Europe racing staff, as well as some of the leading tyre and suspension manufacturers and 2D Datarecording.

• FREE OF CHARGE. Costs that the teams will have to pay are travelling costs, eventual hotel facilities, food, fuel, tyres and other machine consumables.
Theoretical education:
1. Technical presentation (05 models R1 and R6)
2. 2D data kit
3. Suspension – setting up and maintenance of front forks and rear shocks
4. 2005 YEC Kit manual presentation (incl. installing and tuning)

Location & Date:
• Sunday 20th March (arrival teams) to Wednesday 23rd March (inclusive) at Ricardo Tormo circuit, Valencia, Spain. For more information and route description, please visit the website:

How to Register:
For detailed program information and for registrations, please contact your national Distributor before February 23rd! To find who to contact at your distributor, please see list below as listed on the website in the Racing Parts Section under YRT:

Tomada and the Honda were quickest in this week's MotoGP testing at Losail

MotoGP World Championship Test Losail, Qatar.

Nicky Hayden quickest on opening day of Qatar test
Losail, Qatar, March 1-3rd: The Repsol Honda team riders, Nicky Hayden and Max Biaggi, together with Konica Minolta team rider Makoto Tamada, had flown to Qatar directly from Tokyo. All three plus many stars of both two and four wheeled racing had taken part in the annual Honda Motor ‘Kick off party’ where the company officially announced the Honda racing programme for the 2005 season.

Both riders set times inside the official lap record as they sought the ideal set up for their RC211V V5 990cc MotoGP machines. Hayden quickly established a good base line and went on to set a time faster than pole position time set at the Qatar GP in October of 2004. The young American ended his 82-lap stint around the 5.400kms desert circuit confident there is more to come over the next two days of testing.
Biaggi struggled to find his way early on but by the end of the day was beginning to feel comfortable with his RCV and the direction the team are working in

The Telefonica MoviStar Honda team stole the show at the inaugural Qatar GP with a superb one – two finish for Sete Gibernau and his, now departed, teammate Colin Edwards. Gibernau has a fever and elected to sit out day one. His new teammate, Marco Melandri, did test and put in his best performance since switching to the Honda RC211V for the 2005 campaign.

Following three full test sessions prior to Qatar Melandri has worked step by step towards finding a base set up he was comfortable with before he thought about setting fast lap times. Today everything worked well for the young Italian and he was second fastest man behind Hayden, but more importantly he set consistently fast times while tyre testing.

The Camel Honda team of Alex Barros and Troy Bayliss were restricted to just 53 laps between them due to a shortage of fuel. Brazilian Barros continued his experiments with the new front fork while Bayliss chased a sound base set up to work from for the remaining two-days of the test.

Makoto Tamada made a cautious start to the test still feeling the effects of his big crash at the last test. The Konica Minolta rider worked on confirming what the team had learned about the new RCV before getting down to serious testing tomorrow. Honda rider lap times and quotes:

Makoto Tamada takes top spot on Day 3 at Qatar
Japanese Honda rider Makoto Tamada ended the three-day MotoGP test at Qatar with a scintillating lap time of 1m 57.63s round the 5.400kms Losail circuit. Tamada’s time was an incredible 2.3s faster than pole position time set at the GP last October.

The Konica Minolta Honda rider and his technical crew have established a solid base line setting for the Honda RC211V with the Michelin tyres Tamada will use this season. Over the winter testing period Tamada has found the rhythm and consistency he will need if he is to challenge for major honours when the season begins in earnest, at Jerez, Spain on April 10.

Makoto Tamada, Konica Minolta Honda: 1m 56.63s - 77 laps.
“I’m very happy for what we have globally done in these three days since I have been the fastest rider during the second and the third day. My major satisfaction, apart from the lap times we have obtained, is the feeling I found with the bike. We confirmed also on this circuit after the performances during the Sepang and Phillip Island tests, that the package we have at our disposal for the season 2005 is at a highest level compare to the one we had the past season. Therefore I’m very trustful and I hope to be able to always perform at the maximum level during the season which is about to begin.”

Nicky Hayden has grown in stature with each test aboard the new 2005 Honda RC211V 990cc V-5 grand prix machine and departs for his Kentucky home for a well earned rest. The Repsol Honda rider has developed a good feeling with his RCV that has instilled a high level of confidence as the 17-round championship series approaches. He rounded off the test with by setting his fastest time of the three-days, two seconds faster than his qualifying time at the Qatar GP last October.

Repsol Honda, Nicky Hayden: 1m 57.33s – 79 laps.
"After three days here we're really starting to put it all together. I really enjoyed it here in Doha. There have been fewer riders around and we have really made some good progress. The conditions here have been good; less windy today. I'm back to Kentucky for a few days before coming back to Europe for the final tests before the season starts proper. I feel we're in good shape; the team is working real good, and the bike is working well."

Teammate Max Biaggi’s final day was one of mixed fortunes. Biaggi and the team achieved most of their objectives set for the day but their efforts were hampered when Biaggi lost the front end at turn 12 and slid off his RCV. The Italian was unscathed and the machine suffered only superficial damage allowing the team to complete their test programme.

Max Biaggi, Repsol Honda: 1m 57.94s – 37 laps.
"Today was not the best day. We had wanted to make a race simulation but we make a small mistake and I lose the front end of the machine in Turn 12. There was not so much damage but it was hard to get re-started again. We struggled with the set-up of the bike here both on the first day and today. However, we have much data and we tested several interesting parts from HRC and in some cases we have some good results. The team is so strong and motivated. I really look forward to the next test at Barcelona and then move onto racing."

Telefonica MoviStar Honda rider Sete Gibernau shook off the after effects of the fever which has plagued him at Qatar to set second fastest time on the final day of the test. The Spaniard’s condition restricted the number of laps he put in and the team elected to spend the time they had available to tyre testing.

Sete Gibernau, Telefonica MoviStar Honda: 1m 57.32s – 57 laps.
“Considering my physical conditions, I can be quite satisfied of the work done. We focused on tyre testing and even if I was not 100% fit, I did the minimum work required for this test session. We are confirming the work done in Malaysia and Australia, there is still some things to improve and I hope that there will be some new things for Barcelona.”

Gibernau’s impressive young teammate Marco Melandri has shown his step by step approach to testing has paid off and he has mastered the power and handling characteristics of his RC211V. Melandri ran for 78-laps today mainly testing tyres running a race simulation distance to gauge tyre wear and behaviour as the race develops.

Marco Melandri, Telefonica MoviStar Honda: 1m 57.31s – 77 laps.
“This 3-day test session in Qatar was very positive for me, I’m happy of the method of work we have used here. I believe that, mentally, I have done an important step forward. I have learned from the Australian test session and I came here more relaxed and with clear ideas. Today we made some small modifications to the bike and worked a lot on tyre testing. This afternoon I made a race –distance endurance with very positive results: I lapped consistently on low 1’58”even at the end of the race. For me it’s very important to understand the bike and see how it changes on a race distance.

The Camel Honda team of Alex Barros and Troy Bayliss made progress today despite a crash for Barros while testing a new front tire. Bayliss improved on his best lap times of yesterday while working to find optimum machine balance using race tyres. The Camel team will remain at Losail for an extra day of testing tomorrow.

Ducati Marlboro Reports on its Testing in Qatar
Capirossi and Checa prepare for forthcoming IRTA tests with an improvement in lap times and satisfaction for the work carried out in collaboration with Bridgestone.

Doha (Qatar), 3 March 2005 - The Ducati Marlboro Team concluded the third and final day of testing at the Losail circuit in Qatar, the fourth scheduled test for the development of the Bridgestone-shod Ducati Desmosedici GP5. Loris Capirossi and Carlos Checa made the best of today's final session, which took place in perfect weather conditions (28° air/33-50° track) on a surface that gradually improved over the three days.
The Qatar circuit is particularly tough on the front tyre, so both riders concentrated on getting the best performance from the bike exclusively in a race configuration.

Ducati Marlboro Team engineers also managed to identify several promising set-up and tyre solutions, which clearly have to be developed in the next scheduled tests before the start of the championship.
Loris Capirossi succeeded in improving on yesterday's performance, and the Italian recorded a best time of 1m57.320s in his 54 laps.

"I am quite pleased with the work we have done over the past three days. We're still not 100% right with the front but we are on the right path" commented Capirossi. "The GP5 is also going really well on this track and I am sure that the tyres will show further improvement before we come here to race in October. I didn't want to use a qualifying tyre because we concentrated on development work that was far too important to be distracted by the search for sensational times: we are working calmly, there will be time for that in the future".

Team-mate Carlos Checa was just a fraction of a second behind Loris, the Spanish rider recording a best time of 1m57.350s in his 60 laps. "We got through a lot of work today: it wasn't easy and I think that everyone should be pleased with the results obtained" declared Checa. "We improved a lot since the first day but what is really good is the constant progress that we made: it means that we worked well on a track that last year didn't give much satisfaction either to Bridgestone or to the Ducati Marlboro Team. We are improving all the time and this test puts me in a good frame of mind for the future".

With the start of the 2005 MotoGP championship just around the corner, the development of the Desmosedici GP5 is continuing in parallel with the promising partnership with the Japanese tyre constructor.
The Ducati Marlboro Team's next testing appointments are as follows:
March 18-20, Barcellona - IRTA Test
March 25-27, Jerez de la Frontera, IRTA Test

Xtreme Yawn?
Honda Sponsors
Daytona 200 Miller :)

Daytona Beach , FL, Mar 2nd:
The formerly glorous Daytona 200, now one of the least prestigious motorcycle events in North America, will be sponsored by Honda, Daytona International Speedway officials announced today. The 64th Daytona 200 By Honda, scheduled for Saturday, March 12, will feature the Formula Xtreme Series from the American Motorcycle Association (AMA) in a 68-lap event on the Speedway's redesigned 2.95-mile road course.

Here's what the spin doctors had to say:

"We're thrilled to announce Honda as the sponsor of the prestigious Daytona 200," Speedway President Robin Braig said. "We've had a long-standing relationship with Honda and we're excited to extend that with one of the premier motorcycles races in the country."

"The Daytona 200 has a rich and exciting heritage in American racing," said Ray Blank, American Honda's Motorcycle Division Vice President, "We won our first Daytona 200 35 years ago with Dick Mann and the CB750. We look forward to great racing this year and a continued relationship with Daytona International Speedway."

The fomerly prestegious Daytona 200 Motorcycle Race previously featured the world's top roadracing motorcycles fielded by the word''s top riders and factory teams. Now the high speed and high banked concrete walled track is no longer deemed safe for modern race bikes by major sanctioning bodies like the FIM (International Motorcycle Federation) for MotoGP and WSB Wold Championship caliber road racing.

The wealthy Daytona Speedway Corporation has been unwilling for some unknown reason to invest the money necessary to revamp their track into a safe roadracing facility to accomodate modern road racing cars and motorcycles. While for example, Indianapolis Motor Speedway with an even older banked oval facility, very successfully built an FIA approved infield road race course for Formula One, the word's fastest and most highly competitive roadracing series.

The AMA should move Motorcycle Speed Week to Indianapolis Speedway in the summer if it was smart. But it is grasping at straws hoping that a few of the 400,000 motorcycle enthusiasts who do come to Daytona Speedweek in March to party in town and on the beach, might get drunk and lost, and eventually find their way over to the race track to watch the bikes "go around" the track (notice we didn't say "race").

This year the featured Daytona 200 race during Daytona Motorcycle Speedweek will be half a a handful of highly modified 600cc (and a highly unpopular class) production sportbikes in a class called Formula Xtreame (to capitalize on the name once used only for highly modified Open class bikes), and which is only contested by one local distributor team, that of American Honda.

Other then the 2 or 3 Team Honda highly modified factory bikes, the majority of the field will be made up of amateur privateers on otherwise stock 600cc production sport bikes.

The 600 Xtreme class is an American Honda trophy class for advertising PR purposes, just as the other 3 class classes in AMA Pro Racing arePR trophy classes for Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki so each manufacturer can have a race champiuonship to promote their bike sales. The factory teams and riders are split between 4 classes, the racing sucks and the sport in America suffers with a low fan base and no marketing ability.

Honda also serves as the sponsor of the Daytona Supercross By Honda, scheduled for Friday, March 11 under the lights at "The World Center of Racing," and is the official motorcycle of Daytona International Speedway.

Ben Bostrom reports on his disasterous World Superbike start in Qatar last weekend.
3/03/05 - "Two days of testing, we built the bike on the spot at the track, and the guys didn't even sleep. They worked all night. We started testing but had many mechanical gremlins, tried to get the fuel maping right, tried to gel the motor, brakes, and everything. We didn't make any fast laps; just trying to learn the track and the bike. And when the race weekend came we thought that the bike would be dialed in but we didn't have many parts and we were a bit down on speed. But the team was gelling really well. It's a great team, really fantastic."

"But of course it rained and we only had one good bike so we sat out to not risk wrecking our good bike. In the second session, I bedded in the brakes for two laps and then I crashed! I'm not sure what the problem was, but the mechanics said it was something with the swingarm or something. I didn't get hurt but the bike was wrecked pretty bad. And the next time we really got to ride the bike was Friday morning in the wet. And that was fine. I still didn't want to crash the bike, but we managed to be 6th fastest in the wet."

"We took our first dry laps in the afternoon, and we were very conservative and ended up deep in the grid. We were quicker in the Saturday morning warm up, but still conservative. During the first race the setup was a bit wrong for the dry/wet conditions. We ended up finishing 12th across the line, but 16th in aggregate. We learned alot in the race, but for the second race we had a mechanical right at the start and didn't get to race. But we expect to have good parts by the Valencia test and for the Philip Island race."

"Overall, it's so nice to be back in World Superbike. The compettion level is great, there are 20 guys out there really going fast. And being back here with them had me smiling. Even when we were having a tough day, I was happy"

We are World Superbike Champions and we intend to mount a serious challenge in AMA Superbike in 2005. The grass roots of racing produce the heroes of tomorrow and we want as many of them as possible to learn their
craft on a Ducati. " says Michael Lock, Ducati North America CEO.
