What would be awesome is to have just the british superbikes no supersport etc. to have a round with the motogp boys :D so bsb race 1 then 125cc then moto2, then bsb race 2 and to finish the day MOTOGP!!!! it would give the world a view into british motorcycle racing and could allow our up-coming talent some opportunities! like alex lowes!!!! Just a thought feel free to agree or disagree eitherway i love the thought of it and promotors should too!!

You do get a good weekend out with the MotoGP. Last year was great as we are allowed on the infield too. Some friends went with me on qualify day and they loved it, then they went to F1 there not long after and was not allowed in the infield. and they said they got made to bunch up on the hanger straight because of new stands that had gone up. At least with MotoGP you get better access in the area and great photos. last year my three day ticket was worth every penny and i am doing it again this year. not missed a british round of the MotoGP since 2005. Great weekend to look forward too :-)
