Quote: Whose main goal is to promote motorcycle racing.

Qatar is seriously in need of it...

Maybe they should make the event free becouse I doubt they will get more then 1000 in paid attendence
concidering motogp gets less then 4500 for the entire weekend...

People loose sight of the fact he will be on a bike that Dovi regularly put up the front. Baring that in mind, Bradley has a better than average chance of beating the field except for the team Honda, Yamaha bikes. Hope so as it all adds to an exciting 2013 season.

He wants to promote and see what the talent is like and how they have improved.
What will happen if he gets his **** kicked by the locals in the race????

Has everyone forgoten how impressive he was in the first season of moto2? He was fighting for podiums on a regular basis, like he was in 125s. Also worh considering tha Herve / Tech 3 see the truth, i.e telemetry. I recall Danny Webb saying that from trackside no-one seemed to be riding harder than Bradley ( 2012 ). I wasn't hugely impressed this year, or last year, but we just see results, not the hard data / hard work / strife that goes on behind the scenes. Let's see next year.......Good luck to him, good to see he's taking it so professionally for a yun 'un as well.

If you took a seaside donkey to the weston beach race you would get spanked. Turning up on the moto2 grid with a Tech3 is much the same. He did a good job of rolling that turd in glitter this year. He is a bright guy and maybe has more chance to understand how to get a gp bike quick than other brits.

Lets hope anyway.
