Talk about cutting costs... Having the entire paddock fly to the eastern hemisphere & back for the Motegi race makes no sense.
Now the teams can bus a few hundred kilometers to France instead.
And flying from Japan to Australia saves fuel, while reducing jet lag for the riders. Hopefully this schedule will stick.

For once in my eyes anyway the bike race is not so important to me. Good luck to the Japanese this situaton is very serious over there, my positive thoughts are with you all stay safe.

It is also stupid to race at Laguna Seca, then fly all the way to Brno, only to return again to the US to race an Indy.
Why no do both US races on consecutive weekends, and then fly back to Europe?

They better not mess up the Aragon dates. I already bought my tickets and was planning to purchase my airfare this week or next (coming from the states).
