2012 Catalunya MotoGP FP3 Result: Pedrosa Crushes Race Lap Record
2012-06-02 11:19:00
Dani Pedrosa topped the timesheets in the final session of free practice for the MotoGP class at Barcelona, smashing the existing race lap record and getting well on the way to the pole record, which has stood since 2008. Pedrosa took the top spot in the last few minutes of the session, after mounting a soft rear to drop his times into the 1'41 bracket.  Pedrosa had to depose his Repsol Honda teammate to take the top spot. Casey Stoner had sneaked ahead of Monster Tech 3 Yamaha's Andrea Dovizioso in the last 10 minutes, posting a scorching time using the harder rear. Dovizioso had held the fastest time for most of the session, having been the first man to get under 1'42 early on in FP2, though the Italian had used the soft rear to get the time. Hector Barbera ended the session in 4th, the Pramac Ducati taking advantage of Jorge Lorenzo to leapfrog well up the field. Barbera finished ahead of the factory Ducati of Nicky Hayden, the American taking 5th spot ahead of y...
2012 Catalunya Moto3 FP3 Result: Vinales Takes Command
2012-06-02 10:23:00
Maverick Vinales led the final session of free practice for the Moto3 class at Barcelona, taking a massive 0.7 second lead with a fast final lap. The Spaniard had been at or close to the top for much of FP3, but put some serious space between himself and 2nd place man Zulfahmi Khairuddin with that last lap. Khairuddin leads the trio of Ajo KTMs, the Air Asia-backed Malaysian leading the Red Bull riders Danny Kent and Sandro Cortese. Cortese suffered a heavy fall, but appears to have come away relatively unhurt, only reporting a painful hand. Results: Race Details 2012 read more
2012 Catalunya MotoGP Friday Round Up: On Weather, Ducati Upgrades And The
2012-06-02 00:38:00
After the fickle weather which has dogged the first three European rounds of MotoGP, the first day of practice at Barcelona weekend got off to a dry, warm and sunny start. It was just what the teams and riders needed, some dry track time to work on the issues they face: for Honda, the chatter which they have suffered since the introduction of the RCV213V in the middle of last year, for Ducati, the lack of rear grip and poor drive out of corners, and for Yamaha, well, nothing really, it's a pretty good bike as it is. Conditions were pretty near ideal, though the blazing afternoon sun made the track a little too hot to get the best out of the tires, and it showed in the times. In the MotoGP class, Jorge Lorenzo posted a time well inside the race lap record, while in Moto2, Thomas Luthi obliterated the outright lap record in the morning session. Only Moto3 lagged behind, the brand new four-stroke class still a way off the times set by the 125cc bikes which they replaced. read more

2012 Catalunya Moto2 FP2 Result: Luthi Leads Again
2012-06-01 17:57:00
Thomas Luthi ended the second session of free practice for the Moto2 class at Barcelona where he left off the first: at the top of the timesheets, with a comfortable lead. Despite a crash towards the end of the session, the Interwetten Paddock rider finished FP2 four tenths faster than the man in 2nd place, Marc VDS Racing's Scott Redding. The HP Pons Kalex of Pol Espargaro took 3rd spot, another four tenths behind Redding and at the head of a gaggle of close riders, with Andrea Iannone in 4th, Alex de Angelis in 5th and Takaaki Nakagami in 6th spot.

2012 Catalunya MotoGP FP2 Result: Lorenzo Smashes Race Lap Record As Hondas

Jorge Lorenzo sits atop the timesheets after the first day of practice for the MotoGP class, the Factory Yamaha rider having controlled the afternoon session with ease, smashing the Barcelona race lap record in the attempt. Yamaha riders had a monopoly over the top of the timesheet for much of the session, with all 4 Yamahas sitting in the top 5 at one point. But times tumbled towards the end of the session, allowing a few interlopers to intervene. San Carlo Gresini's Alvaro Bautista grabbed the 2nd spot, two tenths of a second behind Lorenzo, the Spaniard posting a strong performance throughout FP2. The Monster Tech 3 Yamahas followed, Cal Crutchlow staying ahead of Andrea Dovizioso, while Pramac Ducati's Hector Barbera inserted himself between the Tech 3 bikes and Ben Spies to grap 5th. Spies, who had a good session throughout, found himself in 6th, just ahead of Dani Pedrosa, the first of the factory Hondas. Both Pedrosa and Casey Stoner (10th) failed to make an impact, t...

Thomas Luthi dominated the first session of free practice for the Moto2 class at Barcelona, getting to the top of the timesheets early and only briefly ceding top spot to Pol Espargaro in the latter stages, before upping the pace and posting the fastest Moto2 lap ever recorded at the circuit. Espargaro ended the session in 2nd, over half a second behind the Swiss rider, while Scott Redding took 5th spot nearly nine tenths off the pace of Luthi. Speed Up's Mike Di Meglio grabbed 4th spot, ahead of Redding's Marc VDS teammate Mika Kallio, while Frenchman Johann Zarco rounds out the top 6. Marc Marquez could manage only the 12th position in FP1, nearly 1.4 seconds off the pace of Luthi. Results: Race Details 2012 read more

Jorge Lorenzo led a gaggle of Yamahas, with Cal Crutchlow making the best of his new brakes to get ahead of the second factory Yamaha of Ben Spies. Stefan Bradl took the 6th fastest time, very close to the pace of Crutchlow and Spies. Nicky Hayden got the best of the new electronics package on his Ducati, setting the 7th fastest time just a thousandth of a second behind Bradl, and just ahead of Karel Abraham.

2012 Catalunya MotoGP Thursday Round Up - Of Italian Earthquakes, Ducati's
2012-06-01 01:10:00
If MotoGP can be said to have a backyard, then the Montmelo circuit just outside Barcelona is surely it. Series organizer Dorna has its offices just south of the city, and the Catalunya region - and especially the dormitory towns surrounding Barcelona - has provide a rich seam of riding talent, a seam almost as rich as its Italian counterpart surrounding the Misano circuit, comprising Cattolica, Riccione and the immediate area. So this is a home race for everyone, almost literally for some people. Where normally, nearly everyone in the paddock stays in hotels or rented accommodation, Dorna staff and some team members are now commuting to work from their homes in Barcelona. And there are plenty of riders in more or less the same boat. Jorge Lorenzo lives in the city, Dani Pedrosa is from Sabadell, the industrial town just south of the track, while the Espargaro brothers Aleix and Pol are from Granollers, the town just a stone's throw from the Montmelo track. The pressure is enorm...
MotoGP Silly Season Burning Questions #1: The Mathematics of Marc Marquez
2012-05-31 21:22:00
Casey Stoner's retirement announcement marked the - unhealthily early - opening of MotoGP's silly season, and with just two weeks having passed, it is, in the words of Nicky Hayden, "too early to start thinking about that." At the moment, factories, teams and riders are still absorbing the news and pondering their strategy for the many talks and negotiations which will surely follow. Though the paddock, the media and the internet are full of speculation, everything is so open that even the wildest guess may turn out to be true. Even so, there are a few hard truths that we can be sure of, and most of them revolve around Marc Marquez. After Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi, Marquez will play a key role in who goes where in 2013. Honda is a strong supporter of the Spaniard, in no small part due to the backing of oil giant Repsol. It seems almost certain (almost, but not completely) that Marquez will end up on a Honda in 2013, but that brings its own set of challenges...

Puyol injury a Big Setback for Spain
2012-05-11 07:32:00
FC Barcelona medical team has confimred that Carles Puyol, the Barca Captain will be missing this Summer's Euro 2012 due to a knee injury. Our Captain Caveman will most probably have to undergo surgery when his national team colleagues will be trying to defend their title in Ukraine and Poland. The absence of Puyol from the squad will be a huge blow to Del Bosque's teams chance of successfully defending their title. Already leading betting agency has increased Germany's odds following Puyol's injury report. Betfair's Euro 2012 Betting odd have Spain still in number one position with a 3.82/1 odd but Germany at 4.33/1 represent looks like a real force especially after Puyol's injury. If David Villa is not declared fit and misses from the squad, Spain will have a huge deficit in experience and skill in two of the most important areas. If the injury was to a midfielder, Del Bosque wouldn't have cared much; but defense and attack(especially with Torres form) is a bit stretched at...
Spain 'needs to establish a new REITs regime'
2012-05-10 02:00:00
The Spanish government needs to introduce measures to set up a competitive real estate investment trust (REIT) regime. Chief executive of the European Public Real Estate Association Philip Charls explained to Property Magazine International that a well developed REITs scheme can be a powerful tool for attracting international investment. He stressed the only way for the nation's government to generate strong interest in Spain's property sector is to "understand how other countries have achieved this goal with a dynamic and efficient REIT structure". Mr Charls added the reason why investors are drawn to REITs in other destinations - such as the UK, France and the US - is because they are "a widely understood, transparent and well-managed corporate model".  With investment demand for Spanish real estate assets well into negative territory in the first quarter of this year and expected to remain flat over the three months from April to June, according to ...
Spain expected to bail out Bankia
2012-05-09 02:00:00
The Spanish government is expected to announce a package of financial aid for one of the nation's largest banks - Bankia. Between €7 billion (£5.6 billion) and €10 billion is likely to be ploughed into the firm to help bolster its balance sheet and cover future losses. Bankia and its parent company BFA are the most exposed lenders to the Spanish property market, holding €31.7 billion of troubled real estate assets, according to Reuters. Rodrigo Rato, chairman at Bankia, announced he would step down from his position ahead of the anticipated government bailout. Last week, Luis de Guindos, Spain's economy minister, revealed proposals encouraging banks to transfer their bad property loans into holding companies run in conjunction with asset management firms would not be compulsory, Reuters reported. A government announcement about Bankia's future is expected on Friday (May 11th), once a new chairman has been appointed at the organisation. Jose Ignacio Goir...

Spain 'popular due to being established investment destination'
2012-04-23 02:00:00
Buyers seeking out real estate in Spain are doing so because it is among the most established and therefore reliable markets, an expert has suggested. Liz Rowlinson, editor at A Place in the Sun Magazine, said a few years ago there was a tendency to look to invest in the next "hot, new emerging place" as buyers sought new frontiers. However, she noted, this caused problems for investors - who spent money where property bubbles existed and often lost out. Ms Rowlinson added: "They are steering very clear of those and are looking at the solid, established, well-tested markets like Spain, France and Italy." One reason many buyers could look to established European locations like Spain is because of the improving exchange rate between the pound and the euro. Managing director of Mallorca Sotheby's International Realty Stephen Dight noted this week that sterling is at a 19-month high against the multi-nation currency as it appears "attractively stable"...
Euro rate 'a major boost for buyers in Spain'
2012-04-20 02:00:00
People buying property in Spain can now take advantage of the most favourable exchange rate between sterling and the euro for 19 months. Managing director of Mallorca Sotheby’s International Realty Stephen Dight said this makes the present time a very good one to buy in Mallorca. He commented: "The eurozone debt crisis is weighing heavily the European Central Bank's and politicians' shoulders, which makes sterling appear to be attractively stable and increase in value." Mr Dight also noted those investing in the Balearics who do so before May 1st can avoid the deadline for a new property transfer tax being introduced in the islands. The tax changes apply to more expensive properties, but new-build homes are excluded from the tax and instead subjected to a different levy whose rate has been halved. Reuters columnist Fiona Maharg-Bravo predicted this week that property prices in Spain are likely to become cheaper in the near future as unemployment rises and the ...

The Train in Spain: Essential information about trains and fares
2012-04-04 16:34:00
Regina Bryan’s interesting article here on EuroCheapo last month sparked a discussion on rail fares in Spain. So we thought a few thoughts on Spanish rail travel might be in order. The hop-on-at-will culture that prevails in many European countries when it comes to long-distance rail travel simply does not apply in Spain. All long-distance services in Spain and even the majority of inter-regional (or medium-distance) trains need to be pre-booked. Access to departure platforms at principal stations is strictly regulated, with only those holding a valid ticket and seat reservation for the upcoming departure being allowed through to the platform. On premium services, luggage is screened in X-ray machines. Seville Santa Justa station.

Travelers on the Eurostar services that link London with the continent will be familiar with check-in p...

Real estate values slide in Spain
2012-03-30 02:00:00
The price of residential property in Spain fell by 3.4 per cent in the first quarter of 2012, compared to the previous three months. Bloomberg reported on data from Idealista, which revealed the average cost of buying a home in the nation continued to decline at the start of this year, noting in Barcelona house prices are down by 2.9 per cent, while in Valencia this figure is 2.2 per cent. Fernando Encinar, founder of the property firm, told the news provider one of the main drivers for falling real estate values is the lack of mortgage finance available. "Legislation passed by the government in February to push banks to provision for real estate will result in similar declines over the remaining quarters of this year," he asserted. Last month, Banco Santander, Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria and Caixabank - the country's three largest financial institutions by market value - announced they would set aside a further €2.3 billion (£1.93 billion), €1.4 b...

Mortgage lending in Spain falls
2012-03-28 02:00:00
The number of mortgages issued in Spain, as well as the collective value of the loans, fell in January, according to new figures. Data published by the Instituto Nacional de Estadistica revealed the volume of mortgaged properties in Spain slid by 37.1 per cent between January this year and the same month in 2011, while the overall value of lending declined by 34 per cent. However, the average amount borrowed by individuals climbed by five per cent on an annual basis - and by 10.6 per cent month-on-month. Banks still provide the bulk of the home loans in the nation, both in terms of value and number, although the organisation noted savings banks generally offer slightly lower interest rates than their mainstream counterparts. Earlier this month, director at Conti Clare Nessling pointed out that, while the average loan-to-value ratio in Spain is 65 to 70 per cent, this can be higher in areas where the real estate market has been "more resilient", such as the Canary and B...
Spain 'remains a top choice for overseas buyers'
2012-03-27 02:00:00
Spain is still one of the most popular countries in the world among Brits looking for a home overseas. Research conducted by Caxton FX for the Independent on Sunday revealed the nation took second place in a list of the top ten destinations for property purchases abroad. Only France was more popular among respondents. Speaking to the newspaper, Marc Pritchard, from Taylor Wimpey de Espana, commented: "Spain's climate, infrastructure, ease of access from the UK, combined with good hospitals and healthcare system, political stability, timeless tourism appeal and affordable housing market draws buyers in their droves." The publication went on to advise those seeking a property in Spain to approach the current market with caution, noting that while there are significant discounts to be found it is important to choose a high-quality development. Jon Ainge, director of International Property Success, recently asserted the reason why Brits continue to be attracted to Spanish...

Research mortgage market before buying in Spain
2012-03-16 01:00:00
While the significant price falls experienced in the Spanish real estate market are attracting investors, one expert has advised potential buyers to do their research when it comes to financing a property purchase. Marc Elliott, owner of Fluent Finance Abroad and an independent mortgage consultant, explained investors need to do their homework before taking out a loan from a bank. For overseas buyers, most lenders are offering a loan-to-value (LTV) of between 60 per cent and 70 per cent, although there are 110 per cent LTV mortgages available on some bank-owned properties, with the additional money provided to cover purchase costs. While these bank-owned homes might seem like a great deal, Mr Elliott urged investors to be cautious. "If you have a sizeable deposit at your fingertips it would probably be better to look at the traditional real estate market, as these properties tend to be slightly better value for money," he stated. Director at Conti Clare Nessling recen...

Spain proposes mortgage changes
2012-03-13 01:00:00
The Spanish government unveiled a new voluntary code of conduct on Friday (March 9th) for the nation's banks to follow in relation to foreclosed properties. Under the new guidelines, homeowners who are struggling to pay their mortgage will be given extra support by financial institutions to help prevent repossessions. In order to qualify for assistance, which can involve restructuring the loan for a period of up to 40 years, every member of the family in question must be unemployed and the cost of repaying the mortgage needs to equate to at least 60 per cent of their income. The aim is to allow Spanish property owners to remain in their homes, with the country's deputy prime minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria pointing out over 1.5 million families in the nation are currently out of work. At present, evicted homeowners can still be saddled with debt even after losing their property, as banks can demand further payment if the value of the house in question has fallen below the ...

December, 2012: Things That Make You Go Hmmm
