Episode 321: Missed opportunities

38.4MB

01:07:25 Jason DiSalvo/Martin Cardenas

Jim Race and Jules Cisek return from Utah and Miller Motorsports Park and the WSBK/AMA races there. Intriguing races have lead to unusual results with the, by far, winningest rider now just 5th in the WC! But first we go through tons of listener email (and not all of it about Casey Stoner) and Jim had a couple chats at the track as well.

From the show via D.Edmiston:
"In case you're curious about the whole bore/stroke/piston speed calculations.
stroke = displacement / (pi/4 x bore^2 x number of cylinders)
rpm = piston speed in fpm x 6 / stroke in inches
Normal materials somewhat dictate a mean piston speed of 25.4 m/s max (5000fpm), but pushing 26.5m/s isn't too crazy to think they [ducati] can get away with from R&D and still last the 1200km or so the engines need to."

01:10:41 Mark Miller

Jules Cisek and Martin Darlington cover the entertaining (for many reasons) MotoGP weekend in Le Mans but not before some listener feedback and a lot of conjecture around the retirement announcement of Casey Stoner (and no, dammit, we are not bashing the guy!). Some sobering news as well with the death of Mark Buckley at the NW200 with perspective from Mark Miller who talked with Jim Race about that and more.
