“The land of the Dre, and the home of the brave.”
Okay, I’ll be honest here – These set of questions were going to be for an episode of the #Motorsport101 Podcast, but with my workload getting bigger by the week now knowing I HAVE to make videos (More on that in an upcoming Newswipe), the Podcast might be on a hiatus, because having to organize, produce and edit is time consuming stuff, something I’m quickly lacking.
Anywho, you took the time out for me, so the least I can do, is make sure they don’t go to waste, so without further ado, here’s some Ask Dre questions I didn’t get around to answering straight away. My bad. But still, enjoy!
“Do you think Kawasaki will ever return to MotoGP?” – Pega Violin Surjaningtyas
Short answer – Nope. Kawasaki pulled out of MotoGP as a factory team sometime ago, and I can’t blame them. Building custom prototypes is really difficult and expensive work. Not to mention, Kawasaki, have arguably, the best road-to-race conversion Superbikes in the world, having the Manufacturer’s crown in the World Superbike Championship.
As we just saw, Kawasaki just smacked Ducati and Aprilia around to win that, and there’s another new Ninja coming next year. And I can’t wait to see how it goes up head-to-head against Yamaha’s R1M in the world’s this year, after it looks set to win the British Superbike title with Josh Brookes.
“If you could take any team and any two drivers from Indycar to be in Formula One, who would they be and why?” – Eoin Harrington
Ooo, this is a really good question. If I had to choose just two, I’d say Will Power and Sebastian Bourdais. Will Power has been a consistent force in IndyCar for a good while now, and has ridiculous speed, and Sebastian Bourdais has been there before, and has been amazing in just about every discipline he’s ever entered, from a 4-Time Champ Car Champion, to 3 runner-up finishes at Le Mans, and winning the 24 hours of Daytona. Seriously, Sebastian Bourdais is one of the most underrated racing drivers, EVER. I know these two could deliver.
And if I seriously didn’t care about performances, I’d want James Hinchcliffe and Conor Daly as my drivers. For the bantz.
