The only way radiation would be a problem is through ingestion from eating local produce etc,licking the track wouldn't be a good idea either.

I think the Japanese have been very brave and motogp needs to go there to show there support to the country that fills 75% of the grid.

I agree with MDZane. We need to support Japan. If it was me, I'd just want assurances about radiation. From what I hear, it's fine, but the officials could supply current readings that I'm sure would allay any concerns that I might have.

I'd go in a heartbeat and happily eat the local produce. Radiation is not as scary as you seem to fear, 24,000 people died from the tsunami and not one from the reactor, nor is it even slightly likely they will. Stop spreading baseless fear and support the Japanese.

On September 11 2001, after a second airliner struck the other tower as well, a voice over the loud speaker in the building urged people to remain calm and go back to their offices.

We all know what happened next...

The last thing anyone would want on their conscience is someone few years from now, maybe someone like an umbrella girl, or the guy who's job it is to warm the tyres suddenly ends up with an unexpected tumour that turns out to be terminal cancer, as a result from a race they worked at in Japan, just so some of us can be entertained, in some feeble show of pseudo solidarity for Japan.

You want to support Japan, put you wallet were your mouth is... Some nine year-old kid lost both of their parents in that devastation, and is sitting in school an orphan, and believe me, the last thing on their mind is a F@&%ing motorcycle race... I'm sure there are many stories like it...

So don't kid yourselves in thinking MotoGP matters in the bigger scheme of things... Trust me when I

Slow down Bruce Banner...

Isn't it enough that everyone here is an armchair racer and motogp expert, that now we rush to show off our physics 101 knowledge like we're some kind of nuclear physicists...

Brain check...

Someone told people to go back to their desks instead of evacuating the building... To think, some people did just that... Just like people are saying race at Motegi, the circuit is ok, but the environment might not be...

Both situations have deleterious effect...

Personally, in the case of Motogp, I would not take the word of people or an organisation that stands to gain financially, at the expense of my safety...

Call me crazy, but it's really not that important...
