I have to agree with Casey on this one. Of course, Motogp is about promotion. Especially the promotion of a commanding performance on the Motogp race track on Sunday afternoon! That is the winningest promotion of all. It is worthless staging all manner of gimmicks and stunts on the streets or shopping malls yet end up dawdling mid-pack race after race 30 seconds behind the winner and managing only a desultory podium in 12 months because it happened to rain. As a Rossi (not necessarily Ducati) supporter, I would care less if Ducati/Rossi did zero stunts or other personality junkets of this kind and instead delivered a real winning performance in the races. That is where it all really counts.

What are you seriously trying to say that Ducati aren't able to develop their bike AND hold a few days of fun!? I'm sure it isn't going to take that many resources to hold this event ! Fair play to them motorbikes are supposed to be fun after all..
