Race in Qatar is pure example that most important thing in all sports (automoto especially) is MONEY. Opening season race, at night, 4 days event... For what ? For 10K visitors at scene... Bahhhhhhh...

Mayhem .... I sense disgust in your words. Did you know even if there's 10k attendants, the circuit still pays it's due to host a Motogp race. Pls Google the headline to understand some of the inner finance workings on Motogp.

looks good on the tv which is the main thing but there are few people in the stands . probably a good night out for bored oil/gas workers and all the US military stationed there.
would go if there was a flight/accomodation/ticket package for 200quid all in but I bet they dont care if anyone else goes.

@Dray... So, what I am saying ? Money is still main factor, sheiks from Qatar will do everything how first race of season (with all that lights, 4 days event etc..) will be there. Never mind that the interest of local citizens for Moto GP is equal to zero, right ?
Would not be more effective for us mortals (riders and team members as well) that first race of season will be in front of full stands of fans, with great atmosphere on and around track etc ? Maybe Jerez (as before) or LeMan, why not Japan (like Suzuka before)...
