Kevin Schwantz was at the track as a teacher and a coach. What ever else was going on between Kevin and the other party involved had NOTHING to do with that. If instead of handling things in a business like manner (or mediator or court) management wants to use force to keep Kevin out while in the capacity of riding instructor then I will vote with my dollars and NOT attend or support management. Eventually some kind of resolution will come about in the mean time let Kevin instruct.

Unfortunately the COTA management has already proven to be complete scumbags. Hellmund and Schwantz are the two people responsible for bringing MotoGP to COTA. After COTA and DORNA agreed to stage MotoGP races in Austin the track owners decided that it was in their best financial interest to cut Hellmund out of the deal. Hellmund filed a lawsuit against COTA and they reached a confidential settlement. COTA then used the departure of Hellmund to try and claim that the deal between themselves and 3FourTexas MGP was no longer valid. Schwantz filed a lawsuit over this last year and I hope that he takes those greedy assholes for a tidy sum of money. Without Schwantz there would be no race.
COTA also screwed over a number of track day providers that were scheduled to hosts events at the track. Supposedly the owners want the track to be their own personal playground instead of something that benefits the community.

Wow..can u hear it? Kevin's Ego is being a cry baby again. Poor, poor Kevin, maybe if you weren't such a ***** and started acting courteous towards people and fans, then you might get to watch from the bleachers, but unfortunately you can't keep you asinine opinions and pointless comments to yourself. Just face the facts Kevin, your not nearly as interesting as you think and no one really cares about your suggestions, so leave the new tech to the younger and smarter minds. MotoGP is doing fine without you and will continue to. Don't try being someone when people are actively trying to avoid you more and more every year. There is a reason for that. Go home please and save us the embarrassment.

First they kicked him out from whole MotoGP race organization and now even from circuit. He was helping Mr. Tilke create that unique layout and first of all promote whole race.
This is not good decision from COTA, same as few previous action against K. Schwantz.
