ULTIMATE RACERS – MOTOGP990
ULTIMATE RACERS – MOTOGP990 CHAMPIONS AND CHALLENGERS
The Motorcycle Files series kicks off with a DVD programme on what many still consider the ultimate racing motorcycles – the mighty 990cc machines that contested the initial seasons of the MotoGP series before the maximum capacity for the class was reduced to 800cc in 2007.
Spectators, journalists, TV viewers and even the riders – including serial World Champion Valentino Rossi – complained that the capacity reduction was a big mistake. Check out the original big bikes that had so strong an appeal that it led to a U-turn by the series organisers and a return to the 1000cc capacity limit for 2012.
And even the new big bikes don't have the raw appeal of those originals as sophisticated electronics have tamed the beasts and made them easier to ride.
Those awesome machines from the 990 era are still regarded by many as the ultimate racers.
ACTION AND ANALYSIS FROM PRIVATE TRACK TESTS
This programme includes test action from 3 years of track sessions with all major manufacturer teams involved in the premier class of World Championship competition.
From those test sessions there also comes an informed analysis of the championship-winning bikes and their serious challengers by world-famous and award-winning motorcycle journalist, Alan Cathcart.
Alan Cathcart began track testing factory team MotoGP machines from the very first season that the class began and recalls how the 990cc bikes developed over a 5-year period. Spend test days with him at Sepang and Valencia as he rides and evaluates the team bikes from Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha.
INPUT FROM THE FACTORY TEAMS AND STAR RIDERS
World Champions Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden and other factory team riders Loris Capirossi and Chris Vermeulen.
