Default I wonder if a Ducati would complete the race?

Too bad Ducati didn't show up.

Ducs have a hard enough time finishing at Daytona!

Others have commented on the corner workers and track officials in the Japanese races. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?



The line that caught my eye, though, was:



>> seven-hour mark but their race was run soon after. When the Suzuki pitted for the final time to take on fuel and change tyres it refused to start and their race was run. >>



I couldn't help but wonder, did they pull the dumb stunt at least a FEW of us have done, namely leave the "kill" switch in off position? Nah, not experienced racers with attentive pit crews..



Of course, come to think of it, am I the only one who's wondered why his engine won't start? Almost all MOReaders are too smart to do that.

I was looking through the results section and am quite worried about what happened to the Seven Stars team of Hayden and Kiyonari. They aren't listed in the results, but also they aren't listed as DNF.



I think they must have been ubducted by aliens.
