The 2012 Season of premier motorcycle road racing has begun!!! Free Practice rounds started yesterday under the lights at Qatar's Losail Circuit.
This season is going to be exciting for a few of reasons.
One, we are in the era of the 1000cc bikes! More power, faster times, lots of circut records will fall.
Two, the new CRT (claiming rules team) regulations will help level the field for the privateer teams and help reduce the costs for them as well. Meh, the best will still be up front.
Three, the new era Moto3 class will be premiered. Let's take a moment of silence to honor the death of the two stroke era in Premier Road Racing..... I'll miss the buzz of those quirky little machines.
