" could not really care less tbo... sbk and bsb is proper racing. the comedy gp procession gets me excited every sunday, and afterwards i always go 'oh.'

had enough. "

Truer words can not be said!! WSBK/WSS is the most exciting two-wheel racing (for years now)

But...I'll take a shot...eliminate the lame Indianapolis track, remove Valencia, and change out Sachsenring (with Hockenheim) since it is not suitable for 200+ HP motorbikes in my opinion. Bring back Kyalami, Fuji or Suzuka, a race in Brazil and possibly Indonesia.

This might fly in the face of my personal beliefs, but its awesome that there are 3 US rounds, but overall all 3 rounds should be dropped and simpily because americans seem more happy with the more mainstream sports(e.g. the NFL, NBA, MLB, and collegiated sports) as oppose to something like motorcycle racing.

Some might point to AMA as a reason for GPstay in america, but reality even that is lacking the mainstream appeal whether you are talking about Supercross or AMA Pro. The same can be said about the X-Games FMX.

Going back to GP though, I place a huge part of the blame on Dorna for the lack of GP appeal in america and mainly due to their reluctance to market the sport to the wider mainstream audience.

I stopped reading after the words "Dorna's CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta"
To be honest Spain out reduce it to 2 tracks, Ezpeleta out and Indy out.
But what will happen with Moto2 and Moto3 to Laguna? There were talks 2 years ago that Moto2 and Moto3 would join MotoGP at Laguna, but it was too expensive.
When we talk about cutting costs I don't understand why to drop Spanish rounds and fly to Brazil, Thailand?
Dorna is paying for transport?

Ron, niether Moto2 or Moto3 will ever run california why? it has nothing to with the size of the paddocks, but blame it on the fact that a number of years ago(before MotoGP came back to america) california passed a law outlawing the operation of 2-stroke bikes...now the damage have been done there is no just no point bringing moto2 and 3 into the fold.
