Thumbs up Indy MOTOGP

Well the weekend was great in Indy and it was good to see all of you that were there on the RC's. I was impressed with the condition of your bikes and I am glad we got together. I have not heard any news yet about contract renewal at Indy. No news is not good news although I still have hopes they will renew. If they do I'll buy the first round next year. See you then.

Glad you had a good time during your visit. No news yet either from the local sources.

I heard a rumor (only a rumor) that Formula 1 is coming back to Indy. They are waiting for that deal to be done. My source said they want to sign a 9 year deal with both Formula 1 and Moto GP. Like i said, only a rumor at this point. Hope it happens.

As someone who is forever bitter and will not knowing plan to watch a F1 race because of their actions at Indy, I will buy you dinner after the race if it comes back.

Michelin cried like little French bitches and caused a huge PR problem for IMS. Now that the black eye is healed, IMS has done wonderful. That place is bigger than any one event or any one company. Ask some of the folks who visited for the first time, its a living piece of history to which I am proud to support. IMS builds and cares for its own investments, not like NFL football teams who try and hold cities hostage. It does not ask the city for one dime to run the events either, it gives revenue in the millions for each event...take a look at the 20,000 plus bikes that were on Meridian Street. Those folks didn't eat out of their saddle bags...

Bernie "The Schmuck" Ecclestone tried to hold IMS hostage for a 35 million dollar check to have them back one more year. I don't see him changing his mind. Thats one person I would not piss on if he was on fire.

As for MotoGP, I'd be surprised too(2013 may be it)....World Superbike would be great, especially if the rumors are true, NASCAR is leaving, which would not bother me....

I would like to see a fall race of the Indy Cars on the road course as a season ending event.

I need to send a special shout out to Casey Stoner....you are a little bitch. Bitch and win on the worst track on the circuit, so you say.....you are one step away from being just like your buddy Pedrosa, Bitch!

Hey MB, Merlyn Plumlee is not around anymore. Try again. I had an unfortunate accident in Knoxville where the strap on my bike failed to do its job and now I have an effing dent in my right can and a huge scrape on the side. SO lame! guess I am gonna have to go all out and turn her into a castrol bike. Guess she was so sad at the piss poor performance of good ole' #69 or maybe the face Nicky gave me when I screamed "RC51" at him.

Yea i don't care about F1. But i would love to keep GP for years to come.
I agree about Stoner. How do you complain about the track like it's the worst thing ever and then go out and blow everyone else out. Oh and i also agree Pedrosa is a little Bitch.

I doubt that rumor will come true since F1 will be racing next year at at the new Circuit of The Americas track in Austin TX.

MotoGP will race there starting in 2013 plus Aussie V8 Supercars.
Now if they can get WSBK as well, then it will really put Austin on the map.

I also agree World Superbike would be another awesome event to see at Indy. We just need more motorcycle races! Can't have too much

Hey madbuyer, quit sugar coating it and tell us what you really think Seriously, I don't get some of the superstars of any discipline, what makes them such crying primadonna's. Used to be that the ones in the limelight had enough pride in their sport (and respect for themselves as well as others) to be gracious and humble with their success. Sometimes makes me wonder if we've evolved or if we've regressed

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
