First three episodes were released yesterday on Amazon Prime. Unless you're a polyglot you'll want to enable English subtitles as I did. The narration is in English, but each racer speaks in his own native language. It's a fascinating look behind the scenes. I think I'll just watch an episode a week to draw it out. I don't binge-watch Netflix either.

Lucky you. Once I get started I can barely peel myself out of the recliner to have a piss.

It's a product of being raised on network television. I'm USED to waiting a week between episodes (I never got into Daytime Soaps beyond Dark Shadows).

Thanks for the heads up on this. I have Amazon Prime and look forward to watching it. Although a little dated as far as lack of winglets and electronics, I own a copy of Faster and have watched it many times. Love me some GP documentary.

Iím sure most know this but if not Iíll mention it. You can download the MotoGP app on cell or tv and register. You are then able to watch all their free content, which is quite a lot. The only downside is it is in small doses but still entertaining.

I looked at the current lineup and Marc Marquez and Zarco are now the veterans at 28/31 respectively. I think the only real compelling thing in the class is to see if MM can regain some of his prior form--obviously IMHO.

He must be regaining it. He crashed about 5 times.

Dovizioso is 35.

Good point. Missed that ol timer and honestly didn't realize he was that long in the tooth!

I just remember because he and Rossi were both joking about competing for the "Over-35 Title" last year.

Sometimes I just don't "get" DORNA. They had a wonderful venue in Indianapolis... right near the airport and multiple transportation hubs, and in a city that LIVES for racing.

Instead they go to places like Argentina where the track is reportedly two or three HOURS from the nearest airport. And then they routinely run into problems like this:

Stupid. Kind of like WSBK ditching Laguna Seca and it's perfect weather and instead going to Indonesia in the middle of the monsoon season.

Apologies. I meant to make the observation on the regular MotoGP thread, not this one pertaining to the Amazon Prime series...
