It evolved pretty much like this. Nicky Hayden did some demonstration laps and said the track was fine. Ben Spies did some tire testing and questioned the run-off in certain corners, as well as traction on a track that has four different surfaces. Now, getting their first look at the place, MotoGP veterans like Valentino Rossi and Loris Capirossi are questioning the safety of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for motorcycle racing. One of the riders basically said “This place is for cars.”
Opening practice is later tomorrow, and we will certainly have more concrete rider impressions of our American treasure known as Indy.
