Martin Darlington leads a valiant solo charge in this week’s MotoPod as he recaps a mad, but brilliant, MotoGP weekend in Qatar. It’s a desert, it’ll never rain! Famous last words which produced a truly fantastic season opener. To make up for the lack of hosts both Dave Neal and Jim Race were hard at work on the interview trail with some fan favourites making their much anticipated return to the show. Racing is in full swing now as a steady flow of two wheeled action starts running through all our TV and computer screens.

A mixed bag this episode with Martin starting the show with a flurry of testing interviews. After that we sneak in the last of Dave’s interviews from the MCN show in London before heading back over to Harry and Len to briefly talk about what went on in Thailand. It was all a little bit busy these last few weeks in the motorcycling world and it’s only going to get more exciting as 2017 soars into full flight next week. The MCN Fantasy League is maybe sort of back, so do keep sending in your requests, Harry will get to them eventually!

We’re back in action as the 2017 racing season roars to life down at Phillip Island. We briefly go over MotoGP testing before diving into the WorldSBK action. As ever, the Australian circuit produced some truly thrilling action with a set of near photo finishes in all three races. 2017 has only just started and it’s already looking like one of the best ever. Dave Neal was busy down in The London gathering us some interviews from the MCN bike show as well, a truly jam packed episode this week.

Skyler Vickroy and Dave Neal are here to talk you through the bits and bobs of news we have popping up ahead of the MotoGP and WorldSBK tests in Phillip Island. We’ve finally had the full WorldSBK calendar revealed so it’s almost time to go racing! Ducati’s Salad Box continues to puzzle everyone but luckily there’s one or two journey doing the hard work. It’s a quick show this week, mostly to make way for more wonderful interviews from the great Phil Hall.

Harry Lloyd and Skyler Vickroy are back at it again for a bit of a monster show. We talk all things testing from winglets to Scott Redding to Jorge Lorenzo. The racing season is fast approaching but we have a quick flash back to the past with Phil Hall who checks in from the P.I. Classic with the first of his wonderful interviews. There’s something for everyone! Oh and those first bike sounds from Phil’s interviews are the legendary Britten being warmed up and ridden - you might want to turn the volume down…
Skyler Vickroy and Harry Lloyd team up to tackle the pressing motorcycle racing issues of the week. This includes Andrea Iannone’s hair, Ducati’s salad box and the Circuit of Wales. Motorcycle racing always keeps us guessing, huh? We also a lovely racing memory from Scott Bolton’s super smooth vocal chords. Aside from rider fashion, we also run through who was fast and who wasn’t at the first WSBK test of the year. It’s all starting to get a bit exciting as both WSBK and MotoGP get into the swing of testing. 2017 is here!
It’s us! Harry and Dave are back together to bring MotoPod into 2017. Of course there’s more than just the return of MotoPod to talk about as some rather surprising TT news broke just hours before recording. Of course, the news is the return of Guy Martin, something no body saw coming! We also catch up on all the comings and goings in BSB with more and more seats filling up ahead of a juicy little season. Now, let’s all go look at some pretty MotoGP bikes get revealed and surprise no one with their liveries!
The brand new pairing of Skyler Vickroy and Harry Lloyd are back at it to keep talking Superbike rules. Skyler has been doing his homework so clears up a few questions we had floating around about the new WorldSBK grid. But then we go and raise even more questions as we chat about the new rules for the Stock 1000 class in BSB. The proof will be in the pudding as they say and both sets of rules have certainly peaked fans’ interests. To round things off we get a preview of Martin’s new adventure.
Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal come back from a brief Motorcycle Live induced break to talk all things BSB, WorldSBK and MotoGP. The NEC could have easily been mistaken for the BSB news hub as we had some rather significant signings announced. Harry and Dave also touch the WSBK/MotoGP test at Jerez where Rea threw the gauntlet down. But of course, the real top topic of the show are the new WorldSBK rules which were hot off the press when we recorded. Be sure to tune in next week for BSB Stock 1000 rules and a bit more reflection on the WorldSBK grid shuffling.
