But it's illegal to leave the track and rejoin while taking a position.
Certain riders get punished for breaking the rules, others do not.
The Laguna Seca incident brought audiences and excited fans back to the GP so went unpunished. Those who sell excitement and tickets are rewarded no matter.
Just think. Next year at this time we will all be saying "what a great train race series we got the privilege of watching all year". "Isn't it a shame that so many courses have gone broke". "Maybe the NASCAR rules of every one riding the same bike in turns next year will be more entertaining".
Contrary to some posts, The Canadian Pension fund is one of the leading profit return pension funds around. They not only bought up shares of the GP series but put $400 mill into F1 racing. Not as a passive investor though. They take a very active role in what they put money into. Read their bio.
The far flung reaches of China and other, takes 6 days to get there, courses will be gone I bet because there is no TV sponsorship money for those races and no one can spend that admission and air fare fortune to attend.
I also believe they met privately with Honda with out Ezpeleta just because they wanted to hear other alternatives to a very narrow minded approach he has taken. One mention was the appearance of more wild card riders, maybe even on year old machines. Spice things up and make it way more appealing to spectators and sponsors.
Of course I made all of this up Bo and it doesn't appear in Bloomberg or Reuters investment interviews. Nope, just wild wishes.
I don't think you made it up HAP. Excuse me for wanting to read news from more than one source. I have paid tribute to you on multiple occasions for finding this pieces of Canadian-Dorna info first; but I would like to read more about the financial attitudes of the Canadian Retirement Funds from a direct source & you are not the kind to make things easy regarding links to sources.
I ABSOLUTELY believe that Canadian Retirement was talking with Honda/Dorna/Ezzie and others before investing - it makes absolute sense. I have no evidence, but I have no trouble believing that the smell of Canadian Dollars upped Ezzie's sense of urgency regarding securing SBK's under Dorna's umbrella.
The only part of your claims that I question, HAP, is that Ezzie is going to (freely or by force) hand the power of veto over to alternative parties. Until I see hard evidence - I reckon that claim is a crock.
