Although the MotoGP series has virtually ended when Casey Stoner was crowned champion, there is still lots to race for - pride, and not forgetting getting a contract for next term.
But it was so sad news when the horrific accident claimed the life of Marco Simoncelli. A rather aggressive rider for sure, and sometimes he was not the most popular because of this, but nobody would have wished for this.
It's such a bl##dy dangerous sport, and the 800cc spec has reached a limit. Next stage is a bigger engine but with a smaller pot, therefore requiring a longer stroke, and thus lower revs. Hopefully this will be safer, but then accidents like this will happen anyway, it's inevitable.
