    Some will recall that our trip to Marjal was mainly to visit the Jerez MotoGP testing. So we left Marjal, with regret leaving the FUNsters but not a whole lot about leaving the featureless location even if the site is top spec and the price was Right.

    We stopped in the middle of Granada in tired old site with cool showers costing €30 a night ( 3 x the Marjal deal ). Granada was worth a look, we've done The Alhambra twice but never the city, a regional capital heaving in the Sat sunshine, what recession ?

    Then a free night in a field by the racetrack and on Monday, the sound of Moto3. Instead of the gnat like buzz of the 125 engine the growl of the new 250 replacement, plus the scream of the Moto3 bikes practising together.

    Now sat on our pitch at Las Dunas in El Puerto de Santa Maria. Another gem from the ACSI DVD. Right opposite a golden beach and miles of good cycle track.

    Watch this space for a report on the new 1000cc MotoGP machines later in the week.

    Hey you two! You're only about 45 minutes away from us!

    Just got WiFi again.

    I was just a bit disappointed by the 1000s, the 800s screamed like 1000 souls in torment but the 1000s were just gruff and loud. And fast.

    There is one hell of a season ahead.

    OK ask the awkward questions !

    Almost everyone is the simple answer. In all classes they were steaming round in fine style.

    On Friday it was like GOD was in the third pit box, GOD rides number 46. Every camera was peering in box 3. He looked fine on circuit. But there are no details on screen to show times, well no screens !

    But what a glorious circuit, I'd love to see a real race there.
