@Saran, I totaly agree with the poor logistics of bringing everything to the US twice. Maybe there are scheduling conflicts with the tracks and MotoGP? It would be more efficient and cost effective to run them back to back. Garth what are monkeys doing up there anyway? :)

Sorry Yanks, but Indy is a shocking track certainly nowhere near motogp quality it can be for no other reason that to try and garner interest in the sport. Can't wait for this marketing campaign to be over and we can get back to proper racing.. watch out for the bllards and sleeping policeman...
