re: "the problem the series has in attracting new sponsors around the world, and pointed to the 6 races combined in Italy and Spain as a factor"

wait, so dorna is supposed to subsidize putting races in countries where there is little to no demand with the idea that motorcycling (a niche business btw) is so powerful and universally attractive that it will magically beget a valuing fan base...? i haven't read the comment or any of it's supporting chatter, but this is what it sounds like he or she is proposing...? which should obviously be seen as faulty since it's the "tail" that "wags the dog" in this industry.

A lot of the nations I mentioned are huge markets for motorcycles. Especially India. F1 managed to take a race to India and make a success of it, why not Moto GP? If the series can promote itself well in new markets it would attract more sponsiors and thus increase the profitability of the grid, meaning Dorna has less need to subsidise anyone
