@ pippi the cock

I think that your comments are a little harsh, were you even around when 34 was actually racing??
He is not washed up and he was a great champoin.
The man was trying to bring something good to Texas, what ever happened in the deal, he should not be treated this way.
Should proberbly blame his manager, not him.

It may sound like childish antics by CoTA but its strictly business. Schwantz is suing CoTA, so I think its pretty safe to say they don't want him hanging around the track. Thats pretty standard when there is an open legal dispute. Schwantz had to know he was going into "enemy territory" regardless of what his purpose was. I like Schwantz but he is a bit out of his league here trying to go up against the businessmen that own/run CoTA. Get your lawsuit resolved and then you can go about your business in MotoGP.

Theres two sides to every story and Kevin is taking the owners to court which could cost them millions of dollars,Why would they want him walking around their Track? Why would he even show up other then to aggravate the real owners? Its going to take more the Coaching from Kevin Scwhantz to Make Blake Young faster on a CRT bike!!!!
Everyone who has road this track has said its a F1/Car track which makes me wonder how much Input Kevin really had on this Project.

Seen as he had signed in with a valid pass that is petty in the extreme.

Schwantz should avoid Syd Barrett syndrome though.
"Especially because I am single-handedly responsible for bringing MotoGP to Texas and for the initial design of the facility to accommodate MotoGP racing"
- Sorry Kev but that is a bit of an exaggeration.

In any case Schwantz is a Texan bike legend. COTA are fouling their own doorstep acting like this.

Too much bad blood between them undoubtedly. Even if we accept that CotA has every right to proclaim that Schwantz is "Persona non grata", going as far as accusing him of "criminal trespassing" while having a legitimate pass goes beyond ridiculous. They've certainly made fools of themselves with this move. And I bet that if he apprears as a normal fan, paying his ticket and entering the venue for the race, he's going to own their a$$e$ in the court should they dare to arrest him.
