That turn at the top right of the picture makes me think it goes CCW.

If run CW, the end of the straight at the top of the picture goes right into the wall.

Indy will continue to run counterclockwise. motogp track looks more like the old layout, instead of the new car track layout. Whatever, I'll be there next summer once again!!

Let's not forget that he made the Ducati competitive... So how fast is this bike really going to be? Competitive with Marquez on board or competitive with Bradl/Bautista on board?

Why do they run Indy in the heat of the summer? Couldn't they find a September or October date?

first year they ran in sept, hurricane hit during the race! past few years the weather has been perfect, wasn't hot, 80's during the day and 50's at night, which is perfect for sitting, watching a race, and sipping some beers! yes, other years it's been kinda hot, but by mid-day, there is usually a breeze blowing and it's not that bad

One might argue, based on diminishing results after 2007, that Stoner made it slower.

Just funnin' -- I know what you mean, I just don't think it makes any sense.

Mega drama between Ducati, Aprilia, HRC, Team Aspar, and Nicky Hayden.

I am hoping that Gigi Dall’Igna stays at Aprilia and that he and Aprilia and Nicky and Aspar wipe the floor with Ducati.

Ducati should recall Pierre Terblanche to design the Duc Moto GP bike to resemble an art deco locomotive.

Well, that is certainly a wrench in the monkey works.

I just want to see Nicky on a good bike and a good team, and beat Ducati every time. Whether it is an Ape or Honda, I care not.

Yup. I hope he doesn't get screwed out of a good ride.
