That's the spirit man, that's the real sportsmanship. Otherwise I saw few cowards running away and making the statements publicly, for avoiding regular defeats from superior riders.

Not the slightest chance of harm but we will go for the minimum time possible ?? WHY. Aspar (Spanish) + Dorna (Spanish), Tec3 gets cash to keep going and cash for having a Brit MotoGP rider from guess who - yes Dorna again. Funny old world

Dorna wouldn't send us if there was a risk.....lol

The Japanese government didn't lie did it when evacuating the people of Fukishima and with holding key information .

TEPCO didn't lie did it when releasing figures on the radiation did it.

This whole thing would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic. Fukushima is in uncharted waters with copious amounts of radiation pouring out every minute, so in fact no one really knows what to do.

Pity these guys will force their teams to comply.

I think its silly personally. They are going for about 4-5 days @ most? Get some iodine pills and quit complaining. Its not like they have to spend months in the place, and it shows solidarity and support for the Japanese people who need it right now. The bad thing is that place IS dangerous if you have to live there. Rice in Japan is turning up radioactive, and the environment is a disaster.

MotoGP should go to Japan, however not at a location (Motegi) that is close to the disaster area that has the potential to put people unnecessarily in harms way. Dorna, Japan, etc should be moving the race to Suzuka (even if not up to FIM standards), or if another track is available.

Aspar is willing to go but only the minimum amount of days, sounds like he still has his own doubts about the safety of the location.

Aspar should offer to run Suzuki's & ditch Ducati, I'm pretty sure Suzuki would welcome the cash as well as the extra data to develop their bikes!
