Paddock Pass Podcast Episode 5 - Silverstone Preview And Silly Season Review

On the eve of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, David Emmett, Neil Morrison and Tony Goldsmith gathered in a hotel room in Towcester (pronounced 'Toaster') to talk over the developments in MotoGP's silly season between Brno and Silverstone, and look ahead to Silverstone. We discuss the options for Danny Kent, Scott Redding and Sam Lowes, the new contracts for Bradley Smith and Cal Crutchlow, and ponder the predominance of British riders in the premier class. We then all give our predictions for the three races on Sunday, always a perilous task ahead of practice.

I love how it brings a new insider insight which cannot always be captured by news articles and written weekend reviews. For example, the description of Pol's and Bradley's situaton in Tech 3.

Will you guys ever take questions?

Of course we will take questions! We will set some mechanism up for handling these.
