Yamaha New Engine

Fiat Yamaha will soon get a new MotoGP engine in an effort to close the power gap to rivals Ducati.

The team won last weekend's Dutch Grand Prix with Valentino Rossi, but the seven-time world champion still called for more top speed after the race.

The new engine is expected to feature pneumatic valves instead of the traditional mechanical ones.

"They are working on it in Japan, and it will arrive once it's approved by the testers," Fiat Yamaha team boss Davide Brivio told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Luckily in Japan they only have a one-week break in the summer... I don't know if we'll be able to use it for the race in Brno. Besides, certain things get tested on Mondays."

The Grand Prix of the Czech Republic will be held on August 19, with the following two days scheduled for testing on the same track. (from autosport)

In Manila, they are about to require bikers to have the plate numbers attached to the headgears. Imagine that very colorful outfit made more colorful by the plate numbers!!!!
