Well, maybe the correct formula is for the parent racing series company to start paying targeted teams to participate. I sense this is happening already. Certainly the parent company can afford it in the end.

People in the know tell us that even in MotoGP, certain teams are paid to field certain riders. The most notable claim as I interpret it, is that Motomatters.com tells us that the Rossi salary is paid by MotoGP, and not Yamaha at all. Somehow I don't think Valentino Rossi will ever be so devalued. And certainly not by Yamaha. But I am probably wrong since I have no clue what motivates Motogp team owners. I know they want to win, but there are other priorities I suspect.

However, if the worst is true, than more of that stuff is probably happening at most levels of motorcycle road racing now. Even AMA Pro. But I don't really know. I am speculating from a wharf building in Boston.

You'd be surprised how many people across the pond follow the AMA. Worth it at .76 euro per.

It's good they have access but I wouldn't mind being able to watch also.

You could watch live at the links mdubya and Yoop posted. All races are available delayed on YouTube via the AMA website: http://www.amaprolive.com/rr/dvr/

They are usually posted about a week after the race airs.

Another big step in the right direction.
