lorenzo100th
Yamaha Factory Racing rider Jorge Lorenzo took third position on the podium today in the Grand Prix of The Americas, his 100th career podium finish. A less than perfect start from third on the front row saw the current World Champion lose position approaching turn one but he was quick to come back as the race settled in. Lorenzo was able to maintain third position to the finish line, holding distance to fellow Yamaha Cal Crutchlow behind in fourth and close down the gap to the front to just over three seconds at the flag. The result delivers an incredible 100th podium finish for the four-time World Champion ten years after he scored his first with victory in Brazil in 2003. The sixteen points brings his 2013 season total to 41 after two races, joint with Championship leader Marc Marquez and places him in second in the standings. Having started form eighth on the grid, Valentino Rossi got involved in an early fight with the mid pack, including riders Crutchlow and Stefan Bradl, eventually bettering the German rider to move up and hold on to sixth place to the finish line. Rossi had to contend with a vibration from his front brakes during the race and had battled all weekend to find the best setup for the demanding circuit. The result places him in fourth place in the overall standings with 30 points, 3 behind Dani Pedrosa in third.

1990 Honda VFR150R V4 RC30 HRC

hondaRC30 1980-1990 is the era when most of the beautiful bikes are made, in my opinion. Take this Honda RC30 for example. It doesn't looks old and the HRC livery still looks as ever before. The double round headlight makes it look odd but nevertheless still beautiful. It carries the popular single-sided elf-Honda ProArm swing arm for that aggressive and racy stance.

The Champion then responded with a stunning 1'54.714 second lap, over two tenths clear of Crutchlow in second to take his first pole of the season.

BMW M: 15th season as “Official Car of MotoGP™”

BMW-M-MotoGP-001 Munich/Doha, 5th April 2013. Anniversary of a successful partnership: when the 2013 MotoGP World Championship gets underway with the Qatar Grand Prix this weekend, BMW M will be starting its 15th season as "Official Car of MotoGP". BMW has been involved in MotoGP since 1999 and provides the official Safety Cars. The first of many highlights over the course of the anniversary comes at the opening round, which will be held at the "Losail International Circuit" in Qatar: the first public outing of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe. It is only a few weeks since the latest eagerly-awaited high-performance coupé from BMW M GmbH was enjoying its world premiere at the NAIAS in Detroit. This season, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe will spearhead the fleet of Safety Cars in action in the MotoGP World Championship. The high-performance BMW M6 Gran Coupe is a premium product, which combines outstanding performance with captivating aesthetics and luxurious elegance. The latest top model to emerge from BMW M GmbH is powered by a high-rev V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and generating 412 kW/560 hp. It is this power that allows the BMW M6 Gran Coupe to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. The engine performance, chassis technology, aerodynamic properties and balance, which is optimised using components such as the carbon-fibre reinforced plastic roof, are aligned with the kind of precision that people have come to expect of M. As such, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe not only offers a new luxury experience in an M vehicle, but also fully exhausts the dynamic driving potential, which is rooted in the BMW 6 Series. The Safety Car version of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe has been specially modified for its use as a pace car out on the racetrack. BMW-M-MotoGP In total, the fleet of official MotoGP cars for the 2013 season comprises five BMW M and M Performance models. As well as the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, the BMW M6 Coupe and the BMW M5 will also be in action as Safety Cars. The Safety Officer will take to the track in a BMW M3 Coupe, while two BMW M550d xDrive Tourings will be used as medical cars. BMW Motorrad will also provide two new BMW HP4s as Safety Bikes. You can find more information on the 2013 Safety Car fleet online at www.bmw-m-safetycar.com.   "We are delighted that our cooperation with MotoGP is already entering its 15th season," said Thomas Schemera, Director of Sales and Marketing at BMW M GmbH. "This shows that Dorna Sports sees us as a reliable partner when it comes to guaranteeing that practice sessions, qualifying and races pass safely in the pinnacle of motorcycle racing – even in the most difficult weather conditions. In return, the Motorcycle World Championship provides us with the perfect platform. This allows us to present our high-performance automobiles to a target group consisting of motorsport enthusiasts who share our passion for technologically innovative and dynamic sports cars – and that all over the world. We are particularly proud to be able to run our high-performance luxury coupe, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, as a Safety Car in the 2013 season."   BMW M GmbH's involvement in MotoGP is not solely restricted to the Safety Car fleet, but also comprises numerous sales and marketing campaigns within the Grand Prix environment. The BMW M Hospitality in the paddock will display MINI, BMW and BMW M automobiles. Visitors will also receive detailed information on the Grand Prix, riders and teams. An exclusive VIP sales programme completes the offering in the BMW M Hospitality. On the BMW M MotoGP Experience, guests spend the race weekend in the VIP village, thus gaining insights into what goes on behind the scenes of the Motorcycle World Championship. Among the highlights of this visitor package are the garage tours with former world champion and BMW M MotoGP Expert Loris Capirossi (ITA), meetings with the current crop of riders, and taxi rides in one of the BMW M Safety Cars.   The BMW M Award is also celebrating an anniversary this year. Since 2003, this award has been presented at the end of the MotoGP season to the rider with the best overall qualifying record. Among the recent winners, who receive an exclusive BMW M car for their efforts, are Valentino Rossi (ITA), Casey Stoner (AUS), Jorge Lorenzo (ESP) and Nicky Hayden (USA). To mark the tenth anniversary of the award, the best qualifier this season can look forward to a special highlight – however, the exact BMW M model will not be revealed until the start of the European leg of the season in Jerez (ESP) in May.   BMW M GmbH rang in the first grand prix week of the season with an exclusive M6 event hosted by Alfardan Automobiles, the BMW importer in Doha. This pre-launch event enabled Qatari national media representatives and invited customers to be the first to view the eagerly anticipated BMW M6 Gran Coupe Safety Car. This pace car, to be deployed on-track for the first time this weekend, was unveiled by BMW M MotoGP Expert Loris Capirossi. Also present were the BMW M6 Coupe Safety Car and the BMW M6 Convertible.
