As a brazilian it's quite exciting to hear that the country is being considered, although it is a fact that nowadays we don't have a circuit that could handle the event, even more if you consider the Brasilia Circuit compared to Interlagos - and perhps this is also a good thing because it can mean an improvement and another great circuit in Brazil.

re: "Surely a round in South America can be made financially viable if it is promoted right, shamarone."

looks good on paper. where you guys been the past 10 years...?

PS: i think it's pretty safe to say, barring some miracle way off in the distance...? nothing's happening for you guys (brazil specific) any time soon. it's all hands (funds) on deck for the summer games down there, innit...?

as much as i love motorbikes, even i'm not foolish enough to think we can take on the JUGGERNAUT that is the olympics...? you will travel to argentina and like it.

What ever they drop or keep make sure we have more tracks from Asia and South America plus a Russian track its meant to be a global sport not a Spanish sport.

re: "not unless i pay for BT vision, which i certainly won't be doing"

Q1: curious, what are they charging...?

Q2: is what they're charging really a dealbreaker...? or are you simply thinking free lunch was going to last forever...?

look, all good things come to an end. the era of FREE is over (it's over johnny!).

wsbk is now costing me an extra $9 bucks a month ($108/yr). not a bad deal when you consider i've enjoyed it nearly free without interruption for MORE THAN A DECADE...? yeah, i think i'll be okay.

Shamarone, I think the major issue wasn't really paying for MotoGP to be here, but having a good place for it to take place instead, and that was the biggest flaw that Brazil is facing in the last years. Formula 1 is under reconsideration and we are facing a real chance of losing it because Interlagos management is refusing to invest money on reform requested by FIA (if I'm not mistaken) in order to comply with their requirements. Same thing goes for Dorna with the MotoGP.

One of our local championships was able to bring 35 thousand people in an event that is much, much smaller than the MotoGP... so, if they decide to make an improvement and come up with a good circuit with a decent structure, why not?
