One obvious thing to do then, Tell Laguna Seca that their contract will not be renewed unless they host all 3 class's easy
I still find it bizarre that the official US round only hosts the big class when another round in the same country hosts all 3

With Spies, Hayden, Hopkins and Edwards there is a lot more interest in America.

America is such a large market that this must also be good for the manufacturers as well.

But I really hope they don't get shot of Laguna Seca to my mind one of the best circuits, but RD350LC I agree that they should run all three championship GP's

I feel good about Riders who give something back to the sport or do promo work to help keep motorcycles going. Onya Schwantzy. Just trying to remember what Doohan has done for fans here in Oz. After taking money from Honda as there GM/racing rep, can't remember what he's done. Even the Strip joint/ Casino would have been nice downunder, instead of Monte Carlo. Lol. Unlike Europe, motorcyclists in this country are looked upon as 2nd class citizens, and we could do with as much help as we can.

3 rounds. SAAAWEEET...!

re: "America is such a large market that this must also be good for the manufacturers as well."

looks good on paper. just remember, the model doesn't work without fan/consumers closing the loop on the economic cycle. that being said, all's we need is a date. right now the spring season has barely gotten started and there's already huge wildfires and 100 degree temps in some parts of texas.

That's a good thing. Especially if the 3rd US round comes as a replacement of an "eastern country no spectators GP".

A real shame that Brno seems unlikely to continue hosting MotGP rounds though... this place is truly nice and has lots of history too...

Looking foward to Austin, the circuit looks incredible! But I ddo think Dorna will have to do something about where they put the races in the calendar, as the cost to fly everything to america 3 times will be unbelievably expensive.
