Dave Neal and Harry Lloyd come back together after a week off to talk Aragon and Silly Season. With almost all the MotoGP rides sorted out the Moto2 and Moto3 grid is starting to fill up!

Harry Lloyd has gotten a friend back as Dave Neal rejoins him to talk about a, sort of, sunny Misano weekend. Silly season is almost over so we have our second last big update on who will be where. In true MotoPod style the biggest story broke just MINUTES after recording, luckily it wasn't a big surprise. Join Harry and Dave as they talk about how a helping hand can be exactly what you need.
G'day mates! It's Harry Lloyd flying solo this week, like a kookaburra in a gum tree. We've got a short, but bonza show this week with WSBK and BSB action.

It's getting a bit hectic in the racing world, so take 30 minutes off and brush up on your Australian with Harry.
Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal join together to talk all things Silverstone, what a weekend it was.

Jim Race briefly joins Dave Neal and Harry Lloyd for a brief check in. Harry and Dave then dive head first into news, could a mythical satellite Honda change teams next year?

MotoPod has a very Middle Eastern flavor this weekend as Martin Darlington makes a return to the show from Qatar and is joined by Harry Lloyd who is still over in Oman. There's interviews a plenty from Indianapolis as well as a catch up on the post Indy/pre-Brno news. The Moto3 was as thrilling as ever, matched only by the opening handful of laps in the MotoGP race. The new layout seems to have worked wonders for IMS. Brno be kind...
Dave Neal and Harry Lloyd join together once again to update everyone on how the MotoGP Silly Season dance is going.
