Why are you incensed?

A company that kevin was a part of did have a Promoters Contract with Dorna, but they broke that contract because they could not supply Dorna with proof that he had obtained the rights, licenses and permits to run a Moto GP race event at cota, also they could not provide quarantees that they had the required finance in place to fund the event.

It's quite sad really that a lot of people are jumping to Kevin's side just because of what he used to be without even bothering to find out the truth, yes he truly was an outstanding racer, but that does not make him a business man or indeed a circuit designer.

Schwantz, it seems, might have to watch it on TV. He'll have to go to Europe to watch it as the little channel they have it on isn't worth watching. is ridiculous to as Gavin and Nick Harris are as knowledgable as 2 tree stumps.

I for one, will NOT be attending the Austin motoGP race because of the way the track management treated Mr. Schwantz. The management has NO motorsports passion, they are only about "the money" and as such deserve to lose a lot of it! They will get none of mine!

I honestly think GP fans should simply NOT attend or buy tickets - seriously. I am not one to support BS boycotts, but this one that is seriously justifiable. The management are a deplorable bunch of thugs - truly unworthy of any support. If I were still in texas, as much as I would be disappointed, I would not race or do track days there.

I considered going to the Austin Moto GP. After reading the info about Kevin Schwantz , I decided I would never go there.

In addition to insulting him ( my hero ), I think Jesse James came back to life ---- $60.00 to park!!!!!!

I guess a beer would be $20.00.

Thank goodness for Laguna Seca.
