Despite the obvious attempt from the Australian GP organisers to cash in on the return of the king to his island, it is also a good idea to keep interest in the series in Australia and prevent a classic track going to track somewhere else designed for f1 cars that prevents the riders from riding on the limit due to the f1 cars rippling up the track.
Casey is the pioneer of the eblow down with the rear wheel spinning and not doing it for show but to actually go faster.

True McCoy did pioneer sliding and looked awesome doing it, but I think it was the hooligan inside of him trying to come out not necessarily an attempt to go faster most of the time but great to watch nonetheless.
I can't think of anyone else that was fast with elbows dragging and rear wheel spinning other than Casey.

If Casey is given a ride at PI, or anywhere else, Then the conspiracy theorists are right...MotoGP is a fake.

If he misses racing enough to come back as a 'wildcard' he should enter the Australian Championship.

Why is it wrong if stoner use wildcard status. Why would it be a conspiracy? Stoner is not wrong when he became the fastest rider. He had a right to remain in the race and it was not a conspiracy. I think the conspiracy is if something imposed thereby eliminating the element of justice. For example only allow tire that is only suitable for a motorcycle manufacturer. Though the actual tire provider've had a tire that is more compatible with other manufacturers.

Many say that the tire is not a factor of the conspiracy. Indeed, all the rider got the same choice. But that does not mean the choice will fit with the character of their bikes. Use of motorcycle tires which have a greater power will be different with the motor that promotes stability. Including style racing where rider who prefer faster would have been different with a rider that can only brake to block on the corner.

So if Bridgestone become sole tire supplier in MotoGP, Bridgestone has the obligation to be able to supply tires to suit each character. Do not let it use the data that bridgestone had in every race of every rider as a reference to create a tire that can win one racer.
