Have to laugh!

Seems that ever since Carmelo Ezpeleta threatened to remove Philip Island from the MotoGP calendar due to its weather, it's rained for almost every subsequent MotoGP test and race on the Iberian Peninsula.

That's Karma Biatch!

How do the rain gods know when Ducati want to test?
If they book a test in the middle of the Sahara it would rain.
Testing is important for all the teams but Ducati need it more than most. If Ducati get it right then it'll filter down to Barbera and it'll show just how good that guy is. I don't like him getting a tow but at the moment it is his only chance.
Not sure what is going on with Abraham, obviously talented but has he still got the Ducati vague front?

@KickStand: Philip Island is about the best track on the calendar (and not just because I'm Australian). The riders love it, and it's a good bike track. Surely even Carmello isn't stupid enough to remove it?

Not a chance of that happening Max!
The Philip Island organisers called Carmelo's bluff and pretty much told him to go f*** himself. PI has a cast iron contract to hold the event until 2016.
