    Where did you see that? Very sad to see Brno go but Portimao will be a decent replacement.

    Super lame. Potrimao is good but Brno is one of the best tracks for actual racing in the world, on par with the likes of PI etc.

    DUMB!!!

    I might call Tony Quin and see if he can save it, anyone have his number?

    Incredibly sad. Such an energetic figure in the MotoGP paddock and had built a wonderful team.
    I wonder if this news might help educate those (bleep) people who think/believe the Covid pandemic to be some evil conspiracy.
    Sigh...
    RIP Fausto and heres hoping no more of our heroes catch it.

    The GP paddock held a ceremony for Fausto. Can't help but wonder about the future of his Moto 3 and Moto 2 teams.

    And the MotoGP team! Gresini were the first private team to sign up with MotoGP for the 5 years from 2022.

    They have made a statement to say they will be continuing, of course.
    One would hope that the team has become more than only Fausto at the helm and will continue in good health.
    But, who knows.
    All projects need a champion for the project, he was definitely theirs.
