We heard you the first time ratchetman! lol

Russia? Hmmm, F1 is trying to get into Russia, personally, I'd not go to either, too much hassle with visas ETC, not to mention corruption. Still, I suppose corrupt businessmen throwing money at the manufacturers is what they are after.

In Asia 99% of bikes are scooters, anything else is just way too expensive. Why, in this economic climate, when teams have rules to save money, are they going further afield?

Russia

Its good that another country will be given the chance to hold a good race series, but the 2 brothers should concentrate on getting WSB back at brands. would be SOOO much better watching them there than at Silverstone.

We need WSB on TV

If they want to improve their penetration, the Flamini bros should do more to get WSB on terrestrial TV and not just eurosport.  Bike racing is not football or even F1, and the mainstream will not subscribe to watch bike racing.  Biking needs new interest from the non biking fraternity if it is to grow in popularity.

Ethics

Watched an interesting news extra on the poverty,corruption and shocking living standards many russians are forced to live in........I'm sure they'll be extactic at the thought's of WSB coming.

Why can't the organisers be content with current profit's and service the market's and supporter's they already have ?

Cos of all the greedy bastards like bankers and ecclestone and dorna etc is why we are all in this shit now.
