Look at it this way: If you had IRL cars out there vs F1 cars, and they were within 1 or 2 seconds, the F1 folks would be a little alarmed.



I think Mladin will qualify a little quicker yet, but MotoGP at least a second quicker.

Excellent point. I wonder what the lap times would be for F1 vs CART vs IRL vs MotoGP vs WSB vs AMA vs NSCAR on Laguna. Just curious.... I would expect F1 would be fastest followed by CART and IRL...NASCAR being last as it should be

2cnd sellout in Laguna history, first before the event. Bike is packed and ready, now if I could only sleep.

a few years ago, F1 and CART went to Montreal within the same month. the slowest F1 car was 5 seconds ahead of the fastest CART car. The difference in POLE was 40 or more seconds. It quickly ended any debate.

Not much. There is even a Blata ahead of him. Looks like KTM made the right decision to cancel their own MotoGP entry.

I wonder what the times would be like today if they hadn't dropped the 2-strokes.

I thought the new four strokes were faster?
