Gus- Not all stations have only 1 guy at them. Plus all officals and cornerworkers have radios. We can follow you around the track without having one of our corner workers leave a station.

Is that simple enough for you...haha

1st off CORNER WORKERS .. WE LOVE YOU. without your thankless services we don't race. Just hear our side of things too.

Gus, the side fairing # they are refering to would be on the lower belly pan area or on the side of your upper fairing. Im with you, clearly from your photos the single "100" is no less visible than if you had two "100's" back to back on either "side" of the tail. Leaned over, you still can not see the tail from the outside of a turn.
What is a mystery is how for decades we have had numbers on the front, and the tail and occasionally there is trouble, yet all the other sanctioning bodies alllow a single number on the tail. Presently it is actually harder to see some tail section numbers when forced to have 2 of them vs. a single number. The side panel numbers i hope are not enforced except for extrem circumstancs, especially in age of transponders. In the event there is an incident can the corner worker actually get a clear visual on a number every time? With all that goes on especially in multiple bike incidents, or what if a bike is to the outside of the rider your trying to get a number on? Even with a number on the side of the bike (not tail) you still wont see it.
Next we are going to be required to run a number on the bottom of the belly pan in case we are upside down ! (ok... that was sarcastic and sorry , but i have pictures of my bikes upside down..)

ALL kidding aside, i know the corner workers have a hell of a job and it is a less than thankless job for the most part. Rarely do you get a "thanks man, i really appreciate your help today", only rants like this when we riders get our undies in a bunch. Please just consider our view on this too...

so why the side numbers if you can do that, thats what im saying.
if you can say on the radio " white ducatti, white leathers, white helmet passed a racer under yellow flag " then why are they giving so much trouble with the numbers on the side. like i said if is not mandatory then why even bother on changing it at all.

and i know thats what CWs do, i was just answering to what casper said of leaving his station to go to turn 8 even if is for a split second.

i agree with you 100% the CW do always an excellent job, till this day i have nothing bad to say about them.
and i would love to make it easier for them, but why instead of running the numbers like that why not put them on the leathers on the back, i think that would help even more.

a side fairing number can also be blocked by another rider and you know that as in the expert pack they run side to side all the time.

im just saying they are trying to make so many rules on top of rules for no reason, if they need to do some thing then just do so if not just leave it how it was.

making it an option is not going to help CW at all either make it mandatory or dont mention it at all.

i am personally going to stich my number to the back of my leathers bc i like that and is just a habit, lets see what the end result of that will be.


EDIT: i understand the tail situation. and in regards to your up side down situation, i just cant believe you have pics of that, just insane LOL

Thanks steve.

If you read the rule, if you want the single number on your tail, then YES you do need the side numbers.

Ben Spies with side numbers: http://www.superbikeplanet.com/image/2009/wsbk/portugal-test-jan/@/_BEE8052.htm

Looks like side numbers have the potential to be very visible.
