    Know its not the MotoGP class, but Max Neukirchner just confirmed with Kiefer Racing for 2012

    ...

    WOO-HOO!!!!!!!!

    Sooooo glad I have fix for Phillip Island in 2012 booked already. Got into the new (undercover!) Doohan Pavillion too, about as comfortable and "luxurious" as you can get without spending the thousands on the VIP hospitality. Get a pit walk on the Friday too for booking early!!!!!!!

      Excellent, Finnish Ajo Motorsport is going to be running the KTM factory effort in Moto3. I should check it out, 125s were amazing even though I've completely missed out on last couple seasons.
      You're an inspiration for birth-control.

                    Amazing race yesterday. Especially the Moto2 race. Winner not certain until the very end and just the way I like it. Didn't really pay much attention to the Moto3 race and while the MotoGP race was certainly interesting and entertaining. It wasn't as great as the Moto2 race.

                      Another horrific qualifying session for Rossi! With Hayden 3rd its wrong to blame the bike too.

                          Haven't seen moto3 yet, but I thought Moto2 was pretty damn awesome too. Fell asleep during MotoGP- had been so good over the past few races, hope it gets back to that soon.

                            I actually missed Moto2 which is kind of a bummer since I quite like watching Iannone ride. Now that I know it was a good race I'd download it but I already checked out the results so there's no point now. Ah well, Monaco in 2 weeks.

                              Stoner to quit MotoGP at the end of the year !!!

                              http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/mo...-1226359813993

                              TWO-time world champion Casey Stoner has announced he will quit MotoGP at the end of the season for "family reasons".

                              The 26-year-old Australian, who has won 35 MotoGP races in his career and leads the current standings after winning two of the season's three events, made the announcement at a news conference ahead of Sunday's French Grand Prix.

                              "After a long period of thought and numerous discussions with my wife and family, I have decided to stop competing at the end of the season," Stoner said.

                              "After so many years taking part in this sport that I love, and with all the sacrifices that I have had to make, I no longer have the passion to continue and I think that it is best to stop."

                              Stoner, who also won the world title in 2007 with Ducati, became a father for the first time in February when his wife Adrianna gave birth to a baby daughter.

                              At the time he shrugged off suggestions that fatherhood would dampen his love of motorcycling.

                              "They say you slow down when you get married, but in my first year of marriage I won the title," Stoner said on the eve of the season.

                              "When I found out we were having a baby, I won it a second time. I don't think that's the case (that you slow down)."

                              Stoner joined the elite MotoGP class in 2006 with a satellite Honda team after working his way through the 125cc and 250cc ranks following his debut as a 125cc wildcard at Donington, England, in 2001.

                              His switch to Ducati in 2007 proved an inspired decision as he won the MotoGP season-opener in Qatar, followed by nine more victories that propelled him to the world title.

                              He moved to the factory Honda team last year and clinched his second title on home ground at Phillip Island, having already won nine races. Stoner closed the season with a 10th victory in Valencia.

                              "Casey just announced that 2012 will be his final year in the MotoGP Championship. Let's hope he has a fantastic year," said his Honda team on Twitter.
