Asphalt & Rubber @ Laguna Seca

07/22/2010 @ 4:06 pm, by Jensen Beeler17 COMMENTS

Asphalt & Rubber will be coming to you live from Laguna Seca the rest of the week, as we head out to the fabled Californian track to cover the MotoGP weekend. This post will auto-update with our latest encounters, thoughts, and photos as we rub elbows with all our racing heroes. With a GP press pass in hand, we hope to eat our weight in hospitality tent food, flirt with umbrella girls, and maybe brush up on our Italian. Stay tuned race fans.


  1. CZ says:

    “tweets” are kind of annoying. they almost say something, then don’t.

  2. KK says:

    is that tweet true about rossi and wsbk? i have no clue where thats coming from??? whats the DEAL A&R??

  3. KK says:

    hasnt the YZF_M1 always used Termi exhausts? now leo vince? just for this race?

  4. Jenny Gun says:

    Different strokes for different folks…

    Fiat-Yamaha: Termi’s
    Monster Tech3 Yamaha: Leo’s

    Mind you…that’s what’s branded on the exhaust and put on the sponsor list. For MotoGP, you can count on Yamaha making all those systems.

  5. emd says:

    “Rossi Considers WSBK”
    whats that mean?????

  6. hm says:

    It means after he wins motogp on a ducati in 2011 and 2012 he will race WSBK for kicks and win there.

  7. Time to clean the fairings and get ready for #QP2 #motogp

  8. Brammo Empulse RR looks good in person. 12 kWh on-board…should go fast…if it were racing.

  9. Missed the Bammo Empulse unveiling, but still snagged the shot. Where did the both babes go? #lagunaseca

  10. RT @Asphalt_Rubber: Brammo Empulse RR looks good in person. 12 kWh on-board…should go fast…if it were racing.

  11. Parked next to this guy in the paddock. #lagunaseca

  12. w/ all this fog, how is Mika Kallio going to know where to crash in the corkscrew? #motogp Photo: @ScottJonesPhoto

  13. Zero just rolls like that…throwing down signs in front of the Brammo tent. #ePower

  14. skadamo says:

    Who's thrown the Z sign in front of the Brammo tent? :D RT @Asphalt_Rubber Parked next to this guy in the paddock

  15. They really don't like you taking pictures in the #Ducati garage when the bikes are apart.

  16. What a write!! Very informative also easy to understand. Looking for more such posts!! Do you have a myspace or a facebook?
    I recommended it on digg. The only thing that it’s missing is a bit of speed, the pictures are appearing slowly. Anyway thank you for this blog.
