Ezpeleta is not dumb. While the US doesn't have a rider who could even show my Gran a quicker line through a corner, he will promote the last drop of personality out of that mid-pack Italian bloke for what it's worth, in the land of make believe.
How apt!

With this Texas track it's likely that Indy would be taken off the schedule once their contract ends as that track doesn't lend itself well to that event. Went there one year for Motogp and wasn't impressed by the facility at all, don't get me wrong the people were nice and the City was fun as well but for the race not so much.

Wish they had a world class track in the Northeast (closer to New York City for people outside the states) to attract MotoGP. We have the NJ Motorsports park but too small a facility to attract such an event. Pocono and Laconia too old and outdated for such events. Oh well.

As ever it is money that says where races are held, racing in america is pants! And why 3 races? WTF is dooma (dorna) doing? World Championship racing is about racing in many countries not just the US and spain and i find it ridiculous to have 3 races there as the racers from the smaller classes suffer as the tight ars*d organisers wont ship them there so just 1 boring ars*d race on Tv... hell yeah, well worth the Sky subscription...Not

Ehh, The USA is not the same as an European country. Probably more similar that a state constitutes a EU country. So 3 MOTOGP races on the whole USA does not seem that much. Even more compared to the amount of races in Spain. That said: I rather have the race held at a place where the weather is stable most of the time instead of in Poland or Holland (where I live).
