Thanks for the thread kelsodeez.


Four rear slicks to choose from for this round. Poor Simon, having to track and comment on two medium slicks two different rain compounds. Gonna be fun.

From Motogp.com
Quote:
Despite being a brand-new circuit to the calendar, a pre-season test in Buriram at beginning of this year has allowed Michelin to gain some valuable data, which they have used to construct specific rear tyres to cope with the high temperatures that will be generated. With this in mind, Michelin have brought four Power Slick rear tyre compounds: a soft, two mediums and a hard. All four will be asymmetrical in design with a harder right-hand shoulder to cope with the layout of seven right-turns, as opposed to five left-handers. For the front slick tyres, three symmetric compounds will be available: soft, medium and hard.


With it still officially being monsoon season in Thailand, the weather could play a vital part in proceedings. Therefore, Michelin’s Power Rain tyres could be making a regular appearance and these will be available in the usual soft and medium compounds. The rear medium will be symmetric, but the soft rear having an asymmetric finish with a harder right-side, just like the slicks.

Thanks Kelso

The track looks pretty sweet.
Interesting that Pacific Track Time is sponsoring this round..

Layout looks pretty point and shoot so that might mean that the Honda does well here. MM has to get my vote to win this round.

Why no DP26 option? He was fastest in the preseason, no?

No matter what, Yamaha are bound to break their losing streak. Most probably by making it historically longer.

be on the lookout for whiners with undies in bunch

Its still monsoon season so Yamaha has a chance if, and only if, they uncrate some FIM MotoGP-approved Waverunners for a wet race.
