Ok this poses an interesting situation.

We currently have MotoGP at Laguna Seca and Indy.
I don't know about Laguna Seca, but your link shows Indy confirmed up to 2014.
Circuit of The Americas is coming online next year, with MotoGP for 2013.
So that potentially means the U.S. will have THREE MotoGP races in 2013 and 2014.

Now if Indy and Austin can persuade the FIM to also host WSBK, then we could also have three WSBK races as opposed to just the one race at Miller in UT.

If we had three MotoGP and three WSBK races per year in the U.S., that would be awesome.
I guess now everyone needs to lobby Indy and Austin to go after the FIM to host WSBK.

I have been for some time now but IMS doesn't want to over burden the locals around the track with non-stop events. May- Indy....July-Brickyard....August-MotoGP. Where would you put it?? Nothing comes before the Indy 500.

It takes one month to change over the track completely from oval to road course racing. They really pushed the changeover this year.
