Fair play to Paris this time around. She is giving some up and coming riders and a relatively small team a chance to improve. Ok, I don't like the celebrity circus or the socialites plastered all over rubbish magazines and tv shows but I think what she is doing here is genuinley constructive. What can she really be getting out of this arrangement? Probably not huge amounts. Who knows, others may join in and "compete" against Paris' team with sponsorship of their own. In a time when top teams can't get sponsorship this should be welcomed.

It seems to me there's alot of reading between the lines. I made a sarci comment about it not really being news worthy. Didn't realise paris making it to a mid season race would thrill so many people. News worthy for hello maybe but not motorsport.

Skidmarks - I agree her attendance is not news at all. I was merely commenting on how, for a change, she is actually doing something constructive that is benefitting people other than herself. most unlike a celebrity/socialite.

Sweeble - agreed when put into context like that it doesn't sound great. Although, it is not much more silly than a Jap bike team sponsored by an italian car company! At this stage, when teams can't afford to be too picky about sponsors it would be a brave team to turn them away. Especially those with little backing already. Not all teams are blessed with money from Repsol, Marlboro etc

It was not an insult - you obviously feel qualified to state what is newsworthy in media outlets, why so tetchy or was it another unsubstantiated comment?

Don't believe anyone has stated that any other sponsor is not newsworthy? Would still like to hear the reasoning behind why this sponsor is an unwelcome distraction. I am open to persuasion if you can make a convincing reason why.

Ok, i'm not interested in her being there or not, if you are fine. If you really think her appearance is news worthy cool. All I said was slow news day ( again). I never said it is a bad thing she sponsor a team, I never said she shouldn't be there. With tt fortnight on, bsb and worlds last week and gp this weekend (Woohoo) it is possible there is better things to read/ discuss.
