Saying that a rider of Kevin's caliber isn't interested in anything but his wallet is completely wrong. As he says, he's devoted his whole life to motorcycle racing.

The folks in COTA are much like the people at CVC Holdings in F1. No interest in the sport at all. That's why there have been problems getting the circuit going.

were these agreements made over a handshake? A quick tort mediation should settle this fairly quick.

If Schwantz's deal was with Hellmund, and he was removed, then this shouldn't go far.

If the original agreement/deal/contract fell through I would have thought COTA would be free to do as they please regarding a new deal with DORNA, sounds like revvin Kevin is upset at being bypassed on a new deal, seems harsh but thats business I guess.
