MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'


BBC + Eurosport is better than BBC + Eurosport-1-hr-delayed is better than BT Sport. At least for the good of the sport in general. However, BT Sport did a fine job on the programming this year. It's just a shame more people didn't see it. Dorna's biggest problem is there inability to grow the sponsorship income for the teams. The sponsors want to see coverage and air time, which means Dorna need to build audience. There ought to be a direct link between TV coverage of the series and home race attendance. So Dorna should be focussed long term on getting the widest possible quality TV coverage.

MotoGP » Which circuit should host the British MotoGP?


Donington. But only if they use this as an incentive to restore all the infield area and do something about the sight lines. And especially find ways for the crowd to get closer to the track while still being safe. Can we also please return to the french style anarchy in the "noisy" campground of the late 90s WSB. And maybe get some stripping slappers in to join the Toseland and Witham bands for the sat night party in the hangers.

MotoGP » Six races to decide Rossi's MotoGP future


What if Rossi is now the 4th fastest person on the planet. What should he do then? Pick your role model and career path. Lawson, Biaggi, Edwards/Haga, Stoner. I like the first two options if he still enjoys racing and being part of the circus. 1) Join Suzuki, hope to get one last lucky race win when the stars all align. 2) Just go to WSB and have fun. Some good old scraps with Melandri. Maybe do a one off Bol D'or. The Edwards/Haga route would just be embarrassing. Retiring like Stoner would be sensible, but then what? One season of Rally before realizing it's not the same?
