Rain disrupts Jerez Moto2/125 testing

After the recent three-day Estoril test was virtually washed out by persistent rain, hopes that the Moto2 and 125GP field would benefit from more favourable conditions in Jerez were quickly dashed today. The track had been open for less than two hours when rain started to fall on the Andalucian venue, curtailing any serious action as the majority of riders opted...

The rain in Spain ...

Falls mainly on Jerez and Estoril ( next door near Lisbon, Portugal ) . Perhaps Carmelo Ezpeleta and Dorna should give serious thought to abandoning these circuits and dropping them off the Calendar - unless they can guarantee dry conditions? After all - that's precisely the ultimatum given to Phillip Island. What's good for the Goose and all that ...

Sorry, Chrisg011 ...

I was only being facetious/sarcastic. Didn't mean in the slightest to refect on the Rounds in good, old, damp Blighty at all. Dorna are being less than honest regarding Phillip Island and I couldn't resist another dig at them.

Frankyspain - keep a close eye on Jerez - especially for the GP Round in early April. As I have posted elsewhere, it is a fact that the circuit owners owe millions to suppliers etc and are the subject of a threatened Winding-up Order. Dorna are trying to put a positive spin on this - being a big earner for them and being in Spain etc etc - but if I was booked to go, I would have the situation covered with travel insurance - just in case.

One doesn't have to be a genius to work-out why Aragon got the nod for the next goodness-knows how many years. As well as being a superb circuit - it makes a very timely and high quality relacement for Jerez should it fall over. Cheers

Really.

The Aragon race circuit is head and shoulders above the other race circuits in Spain not saying they are bad they are good but the new circuit tops the list for me.

Jerez...

the best atmosphere bar none...

Beats Mugello and San Marino, pisses on Donington/silverstone, Le Mans is french so no chance, Brno has the 'hottest chicks' and germany decent beer but is too small. Valencia is a cramped pig of a track for the fans and barca has great facilties and atmos, but Jerez is heads and shoulders above all of them.

I havent seen Aragon or Estoril but would give my two front teeth to have seen MotoGP at Portimao Race track which looks to provide some of the best racing.

Best circuits in no particular order.

1 Phillip Island

2 Assen

3 Aragon

4 Mugello

5 Jerez

6 Misano

Portimao could make an entry once the contract with Estroil expires I hope.
