    Well back in Cnx from the Bkk Motor Show (had a great time,) but what about MotoGP on Sunday?
    Is the UN Irish Pub ok for the "mob."
    Anyone got a local time yet?

    Next MotoGP, Sunday 4th May, is China & a "morning" race 'n start time.
    So why not eat 'n watch 'n cheer at the Ambassador's X-Centre.?
    And perhaps preceded by a leisurely thrash around the Samoeng loop?

    Well it looks like Tropical Storm Nargis
    http://www.wunderground.com/tropical/tr ... 00801.html
    could be about to hit the North with a W-E-T Sunday, so if it's pouring with rain Sunday morning you might see me at the UN Irish Pub watching the races in the dry.

    MotoGP this weekend is Mugello.
    Rossi is hoping for his 7th straight win there.
    Yamaha want another 1-2-3.
    So Charoen Motor Yamaha in Chiang Mai are hosting a little party at Yamaha Square to watch the race. Should be free snacks & soft drinks (+ maybe a few ales). Starting from 4.30 PM I think.
    Stay tuned.

    MotoGP » Gibernau 'very fast', but will he race?
    Friday, 4th July 2008
    Sete Gibernau concludes second 'comeback' test for Ducati by setting very impressive lap times at Mugello, but what happens now?


    Go to
    http://www.crash.net/motorsport/motogp/ ... _race.html
    for more info 'n gossip.

    The Dr will be fired up for sure to ensure that he never wins another race whilst the Dr is still riding!!

    Jonadda guesthouse has WETV which should have it live. If you're up when it's on it should be entertaining as John(adda) should be coming home from a night on the town about then.
    Pee I'm in Chiang Khong right now, Mae Sai tomorrow & Cnx Monday most likely.
