Re: MotoGP - Round 2 - Estoril
No kidding - except maybe for open-wheel classes, car racing is as exciting as horse-and-wagon racing would have been compared to horse racing.

We got free tickets a couple years back for NASCAR at Sears Point / Infineon in northern California. Once they sorted our the order right at the start that was it, just a long freight train of cars, no passing or any question who was going to finish in what place, unless somebody blew an engine. Woo hoo.

On the other hand, every one of those spectators had paid $90 for a ticket and there was like 100,000 of them. Compare that to $40 for a three-day pass to AMA, or $10 for AFM club racing, and you can see why Infineon caters to that market.

I can't understand why they don't cover the 125cc races. They provide the closest racing and the highest cornering speed. They are also much less predictable. It's too bad that the government, in their infinite wisdom, banned street two-strokes. With an Aprilia RS125RS, you can wipe curvie roads clean of so-called "sport bikes".

Yeah, I thought that was pretty cowardly on the part of the Prez. He sure got huffy when Telefonica made his cowardice public.
