Too Close for Missiles, I’m Switching to Guns

UPDATE: Dorna is hard at work at keeping the videos under wraps. We’ve replaced the original one, who knows how long the new one will stay active.

Do you know what a dogfight looks like on the MotoGP grid? You would if you saw the German GP this weekend at Sachsenring. Playing host to an epic clash between Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi, the German track was a battlefield as these two riders swapped turns with each other. How did it end? Did Rossi ride through the pain? Did Stoner’s new wings give him the edge? Check the video after the jump, and get your Top Gun quotes ready.

    Damn, they took it down.

  2. Brammofan says:

    Gutsiest move I ever saw, putting that video up.

  3. skadamo says:

    …take my video awayyyyyyyy…

  4. Brammofan says:

    Looks to me like Dorna’s lost that lovin’ feeling.

    Talk to me Goose, where is another recording?

  6. Jenny Gun says:

    Jesters’ in my sights, a new video is up.

    A&R: Dorna, request permission for a flyby.
    Dorna: Negative, Ghost Rider, the pattern is full. No one gets anything for free. BTW, we want a quarter every time you say “MotoGP”.
    A&R: P!ss on you, Dorna, you stingy bastard!

    Now that was some amazing racing!

  9. Rob says:

    He went like this, we went like that, Lorenzo said ‘where’d he go’, Rossi said ‘where’d whooooo go’?

    Thanks for the vid; I gotta get a TiVo, huh!

  11. Dr. Gellar says:

    When I hit the brakes, he’ll fly right by.

  12. skadamo says:

    Pulled it again. Man, must be a full time job for Dorna.

  13. Brammofan says:

    Officer: [in the midst of the MIG battle] Both Catapults are broken, sir. DORNA has taken both videos down.
    Stinger: How long will it take to get a new video up?
    Officer: It’ll take ten minutes.
    Stinger: Bullshit ten minutes! This thing will be over in two minutes! Get on it!

    What I found funny about the whole race was how everyone else (Jorge, Dani, Dovi, Spies, etc) just faded to the background and we all were watching a Rossi/Stoner 08 Laguna Seca rematch. Who cares what place they were fighting for? Dorna/MotoGP will be HATING life when Rossi finally retires.
