nice pics. MH providing race coverage, real time comentary and post race anaylsis. Plus all the media goodies to go with it. Thanks,

Any one have an answer to why after the last turn they swerve to the inside of the frint straight towards the pit wall so dramatically. I can understand a racing line to break off the draft, etc. but I noticed it in Qual too. I dont see any other obvious advantage since it makes the turn and straight longer. Looks like there could be a slight swoop of a hill that they might be trying to get a run down from the outside of the turn. any other ideas.

could be related to air or just to not allowed the rider behind you to draft you.

I've seen racer do this at another track,
I was told it was because the air closest to the wall was the "cleanest".
I remain unconvinced
