This is because the Spanish have invested in young riders over the last decade or so. Fair enough IMO.

Now that their economy is shafted this will probably come to an end.

Strange that a little country like Spain can find sponsorship to run 4 GP's a year plus being major sponsors of top teams like Honda,have with out a doubt the best rider development series in the world.All this with a 25% unemployment rate and an economy that is all but bankrupt.Whats up with the rest of the world? With commitment like that the Spanish deserve all the glory they are getting.

Then open this electronic magazine even if you don't speak Spanish...

Then find a publication anywhere outside of Spain of half that quality.

Oh yeah and ask your airport ticket attendant if he/she knows any of the native riders like they do in Spain.

Good luck with that.

@johnnyoza
You are spot on there ,they deserve all they are getting you only have to look here in Aus wayne Gardiner had to go tp Spain to get his Son into racing because he could not get sponsorship here its a joke. All the money going into V8 racing where we see cars going round goat tracks that were outdated 30 yrs ago and after the first lap its Indian file for the rest of the race because there is not enough room for a car to pass,the only decent race is Bathurst the rest is rubbish, as a stoner fan I think the only reason he is in it he gets a bit of fun out of it.
