And Their Off- Eventually

Heavy rain just as the Qatar MotoGP was about to start delayed the racing for almost an hour (it had also wiped out the qualifiers for the starting line up the day before) but once we got underway we had a cracker.

Crutchlow dumped his Honda as per usual and Rossi had a shite start as usual too, but that's where all the predictability ended for we had Rossi's new team mate, Maverick Vinales (for real, he was named after the Top Gun dude) on pole with his hew Yamaha and blow me if he didn't go and win the thing.

Equally noteworthy was Lorenzo limping home in 11th on his new Ducati and Scott Reading making a super 8th.  Can't wit for 9th April when the shoe heads off to Argentina.
