Absolutely, I had a dinner engagement and didn’t watch the race live, and have studiously avoided footage since for exactly the reason you say, although for reasons inexplicable to me I still needed to actively avoid seeing it on various forums for a time.

I avoided seeing the footage of William Dunlops accident until I clicked on a "Tribute to William Dunlop" video on YT thinking "It's a tribute, it'll be all the good bits from his career" but no it opens with what I can only describe as the worst accident I've ever seen and is still in my fucking head now whenever I think of the lad I see the accident. In the same way when I think of Simo and Dan Wheldons names I still see the image of their accidents though I was watching both of those races live and couldn't avoid seeing it but that Dunlop one took me by complete surprise and apparently the cunt circulating that footage has been outed as a Garda officer.

I'm avoiding the Dunlop videos for a while. I don't want to see the crash.

it has been confirmed that both Mexico and Finland (which was also rumored to have a round already next year) will NOT be hosting a motoGP race in 2019, but for both countries the project of doing so remains for a more far away future.

no worries, it's still their goal. They wanna do an American 3-in-a-row thing similar to the one they have at the end of the season with Japan-Australia-Malaysia. So I'm guessing their plan is Argentina-Austin-Mexico

Would love to see it at another circuit though. That Mexican circuit looks like it will be boring as fuck.

I agree.

They should bring back Brazil, that was an awesome one. I believe they last raced there in 04

Then you get more holidays than most people have who work a normal job. What the fuck are you complaining about? That it's not a hobby but a full time job that you get paid obscene amounts to do?

This just really rubbed me the wrong way, their schedule is not that bad compared to other sports and the wear and tare on their bodies is nowhere near as bad either. These cunts need a reality check if they're complaining about not having a life outside of racing.

NFL is more ridiculous,
16 x 1 hour game season.
Shitload of money for 16 hours work, which you probably only play half since you're on offence or defence.

Except you are liable to end up with CTE, and even regardless of that the average career is quite short.
