    That looks like DORNA there…

    DORNA has a massive sporting problem. Actually, they don’t provide “sport”. What they provide is a marketing platform for Spanish riders. Their corruption of the 2015 season, and the appalling lack of care of the lives of any rider who isn’t Marquez, is shocking. Their own Board Chair Ippolito said in 2015 that “This has poisoned the sport”. Too right it had. DORNA needs replacing. Not only is it literally dangerous for the lives of non-Marquez participants, but also they have lost vast market penetration in every market that isn’t Spain. Incredibly stupid nationalists don’t belong in international sport.

    Only 5 races, before Moto3 on the schedule. Formula E for motorcycles this will not be unfortunately.

    We need a proper electric motorcycle championship with room to grow. FE started as a spec series with massive opportunity to grow, and it’s done exactly that.

    MotoE will be a spec series with no coverage and no room to grow, and it will stay that way.
