Stoner: Travel the world, track days after retirement?

“One day I might travel the world and follow the GP calendar doing some track days” – Casey Stoner.
Asked how it felt to have raced for the final time at the legendary Assen circuit, reigning MotoGP champion and joint 2012 leader Casey Stoner gave a glimpse into some of his possible retirement plans.

26-year-old Stoner, who will leave MotoGP at the end of this season, said: “Everyone is going to be asking me how I feel every time I leave a country or track this year.

“I don't think it has to be goodbye forever anyway. I can come and do a track day here. Enjoy myself. Probably look at the track a bit more and enjoy riding it.

“When you're pushing as hard as you can every time you are out on track, you don't really properly enjoy the track and take everything in.

“So I'd say not pushing at 100% I'll enjoy these tracks more.

“One day I might travel the world and follow the GP calendar doing some track days. I don't know yet...”

Stoner won Saturday's race by five-seconds over Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa.

I think his point is he can do whatever he wants, ride where ever he want anytime he wants. Doubt he is talking about public track days, all the x pros and journo's travel the world doing private track days the public arent invited to,doing tests etc. be funny on those private days when a retired racer is outpacing all the current racers on the test bikes. Hes got nothing to prove,has got lots of dollars and can spend the rest of his life laughing at all the people who bag him.
