Martin Darlington, Jim Race, and Jules Cisek wrap up the year with another monster show. We go through more excellent listener feedback, talk about the Circuit of Wales. But the best bits are a fantastic WSBK season end review with James Whitham, interview with Simon Pavey who's off to his 9th Dakaar (with his son Llewelyn), and of course Josh Hayes answering your questions. Plus episode 1 of Temples of Speed (Salzburgring) from Steve Brookes. Bits of news, a stack attack, and boom, off we go. We shall return in January of 2013 so until then, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and ciao, lates, and ta-ta.
Jim Race joins a done-walking Martin Darlington and pester a rather patient James Whitham, with a short break for Martin off hunting frightening varmints. An all-in-one recall of Moscow WSBK (lightly) along with some additional Brno MotoGP coverage. Entertaining, light-hearted and generally just a bevy of banter. Join us!
Jules Cisek and Jim Race discuss the incredible weekend of racing from GPs in Assen and World Supers in Aragon during which many championships took a major turn due to iffy moves. Lots of listener feedback plus a great call Martin Darlington did with James Whitham!
Jim Race and Jules Cisek discuss the dramatic WSBK races at Donington (wow) and this includes interviews with James Whitham and Leon Haslam. We also answer some excellent listener email, including one audio one! A bit on MotoGP LeMans and a spliced in segment on our first reaction to Casey Stoner's retirement announcement.
