Yes Motogp welcome to India,, Buddh circuit in Delhi is waiting...

Don't axe catalunya and jerez as they carry healthy history along with them.

Brazil, south Africa, thailand all will make the sport exciting.

re: "I don't think we will continue with three races in America."

of course not, like I said, 3 sustaining rounds in the US was never in the cards. laymen dreams this.

re: “China”.

unless it was too early...? been there, failed that.

re: “The most recent Brazilian round was held in Rio, in 2004”

ok, that was at the height of brand VR46 and they said “no mas”. what has transpired in the past decade (other than a GEC) that suddenly makes SA viable...?

not a rhetorical question, not living in brazil, I have zero familiarity with their economics. maybe petrobras hit a gusher....? passing of chavez open up a flood gate...? why is anything rio related even being discussed...?

re: "Moscow"

Sochi.

re: "How about South Africa we had over 80000 spectators"

"had" is prolly the operative word. business rule #438, if you aren't growing, you're dying.

do this...

1. go to your netflix account
2. watch the first 8 minutes of Faster.
3. that's all, just the first 8 minutes.
4. remind yourself what grand prix motorcycle racing used to look only 10 years ago.
5. understand that the 3 major rule changes in engine architecture (heavy complicated and expensive four strokes) and size (990, 800, 1000) and the move to a single tire supplier in the last 10 years have ruined the racing
6. remind yourself that this is RACING, NOT R&D... if some rich company wants to do motorcycle R&D on track, that's ok, but first and foremost this is RACING and it doesn't matter if some company can use it for R&D (or more likely marketing) purposes.

Indianapolis needs to go, the track is not suited to bike racing.

They love racing in Brazil, and SE Asia is experiencing a bike boom atm so Thailand sounds viable..

First time I've found myself agreeing with Ezpeleta.
