Cot damn! Anyone know if he won that event too?That’s 9 championships so far in 2006.
Peter has over 40 race wins in 2006, but racing season isn't over yet with the biggest race of the year just around the corner. You can catch Peter and a swarm of other mini racers at the upcoming AMA Southern California Mini Gran Prix (http://www.scminigp.com) being held November 4-5 at California Speedway.
Hp to weight ratio is significantly reduced when comparing a 220+hp machine to one making just 15hp! 50 pounds is the equivalent of 7hp. You're less likely to notice 7 hp, when you have 220hp on tap, vice only having 15hp on tap. :thumbupchris659 said:yeah im pretty sure he has his own "kids page" in road racing world! i know hes been in that mag a bunch. thats where i first heard about him.
as far as weight goes CU360R6, in your theory wouldnt pedrosa win all the time in gp then or atleast have a huge advantage? hes fast but doesnt seem to have any real advantage other than on other honda riders that HRC wont give parts to hahahahaha
well he also wasnt the only kid out there on that size bike and the other kids looked to be about the same size as he.TZRaceR6 said:Hp to weight ratio is significantly reduced when comparing a 220+hp machine to one making just 15hp! 50 pounds is the equivalent of 7hp.

I wasn't referring to any other kids. I was comparing the one large guy to the kid, and pointing out that on those small bikes, weight of the rider is a huge factor. Someone with 50 pounds over another is not gonna be very competitive.chris659 said:well he also wasnt the only kid out there on that size bike and the other kids looked to be about the same size as he.
discounting the kid's skills is the same as everyone here discounting stoners and haydens success IMO. the kid has over 40 wins in 06!
excuses are excuses are excuses
Don't get your panties in a bunch. Everyone gets their start somewhere. But until I see a kid on a 125cc GP bike or larger bike and competing against experts in the club scene, what a kid does on a mini-moto just doesn't mean very much. As I said, he's an unknown. A lot of people try to move from smaller bikes where they were demi-gods, to bigger bikes and flunked horribly. I'm not saying this kid will be like that, but it does happen.chris659 said:first, this 9yr old was already ouriding kids on bigger bikes, despite physical size
second, where do you get your start at the age of 9? on small displacement bikes
third, roadracing world must think a lil something about him because he writes his own column along with people you mentioned like elena myers
im not trying to get into a pissing match with anyone. im just trying to point out some very young great talent and feel thats its wrong of anyone to discount this kids talent. hell, the kid probably has more skill at his age then i do and im 26! lol
UH, ok. There's no denying he's got talent and his 1st place podiums prove that as well. Whether he makes it to the AMA, WSBK, MOTOGP or just at a club racing riding level is something time will only tell, but the odds seem to be in his favor and starting at his age and being groomed to be a pro racer in the coming years is something that's not far fetched.I don't even know who this kid is, nor really care. Until a racer actually gets on a "real" bike and proves they can race against the big boys (think Elena Myers, PJ Jacobson, Bryce Prince, Kris Turner, etc...) they haven't proved anything and are still just an unknown. Sorry, but winning on pocket bikes doesn't mean a whole lot.
