      Is Casey losin' it? He used to dominate the Texan but now he is barely ahead of him?

      I was expecting these kind of rumours as former Ducati boss Livio Suppo who Casey gets along very well with moved to Honda this year.

      I reckon Honda would have to put forward some serious coin to lure him away from the Duc.

      Australian MotoGP stays in Victoria until at least 2016

      The Australian MotoGP will be held in the southern state of Victoria until at least 2016, officials said on Sunday.

      It had been suggested Sydney could poach the event, with the New South Wales government interested in hosting the Australian MotoGP and Grand Prix.

      But the Victorian state government confirmed it had signed a contract extension - and also had the option to extend the deal until 2026.

      On the radio today the NSW Events dude said they didn't even bid - he reckoned they were chasing another motorsport event but not F1. Not sure what is left? Nascar?

      I saw that TV news said NSW did bid for it and lost it.

      Watching Isle of Man 2010 race. Love this race and would love to go over and watch one day.
      They showed the guy that drives the n00bs around, they were using a Panamera to drive around in.

      Quali on now on BBC feed 125 done, Moto 2 and Moto Gp to come.

      Rossi out for foreseeable future with fractured right shin in practise this morning caused when he had a high side.

      EDIT: turns out it is a compound fracture between the ankle and the shin and he will be out for 3 months at least they are saying.

      Cheers Al

      At least 12 weeks you'd have to say for this sort of injury. Could be end of his MotoGP career and start of F1 next season?

      oh wow, that's big news. And Stoner qualified 3rd. This is going to be a strange season, we'll see a different champ since Nicky in 2006

      Poor Rossi, this year's WC battle will be boring without him.

      The Ducati looks to have lost its mojo if Hayden is even losing the front end.

      Pretty boring race except the last lap, when Stoner managed to jump to 4th. That was some really good stuff!

      I think it's going to be a Yamaha year regarless of Rossi. But then again maybe Stoner will now be fired up knowing his arch rival is now out.

      I don't think he's got a bike at the moment, capable of getting anywhere near his main rivals... Rossi or not.

      The rumour is that he's going to Honda next year.

      Yup I've heard the Honda rumour also. Stoner wont challenge for the WC, the Duke's just aren't up to the task this year.

      Leaving Thursday morning for the island, long drive ahead. Hope it's a good weekend.

      Come on Casey, make all us freezing cold, wet, campers happy. Camping at the island in this weather is not pleasant.

      Just watch a replay of the start. I think Lorenzo got ahead by about half a metre or so for about 50m. After that Stoner ran away with it.

      One of the most boring MotoGP races you're ever likely to see. But least it was an Aussie out in front.

      Go Stoner 4 in a row@ PI.

      Rossi is a kunt, I wonder if he'll ever be given a drive through for block passing? I was screaming for Hayden to T-bone him in the last laps.

      That was the real race, for 3rd and dont forget Nicky and Rossi will be in the same garage next year. Yeah it was boring but Casey at home is just to good.

      The Moto2 racing was much better, Tony Elias made a passing move at Lukey almost every lap was great to watch.

      Have some editing to do, have bout 1500 shots on the camera.

      Great result for Casey with his first pole for 2011 on his new Honda, was never in trouble and easily stayed ahead of Pedrosa through the whole session.

      Bring on the race and the rest of the season
