isn't that a convrted oval? what a shitty choice...the MotoGP guys will hate it even more than Laguna

North America is so far beyond Europe in terms of roadracing venues it's amazing

I'd much rather see them race at Mosport (if they could get the surface in good shape), or even Road America, Road Atlanta, or VIR

Indianapolis???? you gotta be kidding me

elkhart lake would be an awesome track for a race, but you know the fia would NEVER approve that track for safety. a lot of the corners around the back side of the track have very little runoff. itd be awesome to watch those 800cc ducatis come flying up that front straight, up over the hill!!!!!

They'll be using the infield course and only part of the oval....like the recent

US Formula 1 GP.

There are definitely better tracks for motorcycle racing here ( R.A. would be AWESOME! ), but they either have safety issues, or couldn't handle the infrastructure demands of a MotoGP race.

Indy is a crappy track, but at least it's close enough to me that I may consider going.

Crappy track or not, I'm glad we get a second date.
