What a crock. @TheBiscuit your comments are straight out of the Ready, Shoot Aim handbook. You don't know the facts, but you're quite ready to be judge and jury. As to the dispute, based on what has been published, the CoA management saw an opportunity to cut Schwantz out and took it, after they had the benefits of his efforts. If he doesn't have a case in contract or equity, there may be a case for quantum meruit on the grounds of unjust enrichment. Notwithstanding the merits or otherwise of their respective commercial positions in this, it is a separate matter to the reported incident. Schwantz has a legitimate right to be at the circuit for testing. CotA contracted to provide the circuit to MotoGP for the event, and the owners are way out of line with their action in removing Schwantz, unless he was doing something illegal. Criminal trespass??? There's no way they could make that stick in any country subject to proper rules of law.
