"Why Argentina?, with a population of 42 mill an average gross income 10K a year, not many can afford a bike, let alone a ticket to the the race..."
Your question is answered with one word...
They pay lots of money to have a race there. No crowd apart from the people who pay to have it there (and their VIP's). And the benefit is????
Dorna likes money. Expanding markets? Motorcycle sales? PAH!
Who pays the most is what counts! The UK MotoGP coverage means nothing (see UK TV coverage in 2014 for example). Whoever lines Dorna's pockets the most gets the gigs. They chose the market that will reach the least amount of people, but that market paid the most.
If Papua New Guinea had a big enough cheque book, they would have a race there too.
Business is business, but don't try and reason it. All Dorna is interested in is money. The long term doesn't matter... Just grab the cash while #46 is here. They ain't daft, but just another corporation out for the bucks.
