Sprint article on sprint races in MotoGP (includes gallery of hostesses)
We all already know that in 2023 MotoGP will play a short race on Saturday, at half laps for the value of half points. This, together with the podium ceremony on the track with an invasion of the public allowed (a very dramatic image of a closed shot with a full track without the empty stands being seen) are measures that are focused on communicative and audiovisual immediacy. I don’t know if it will attract more public than there already is, because let’s remember, to watch MotoGP (to watch any sport, actually) you have to pay a subscription, if someone who thinks a MotoGP race is long, I don’t know how much they will be willing to pay for a short run. Or will they be offered at half price?
measures that seek turn sport into a show and not that the show is in the sport. And what is the show on the bikes? We have everything clear, right? rivalry and overtakingpreferably on the last lap.
How to achieve these things that gave MotoGP its greatest diffusion with the duels between Sete and Rossi or Márquez and Lorenzo (and Rossi)? Will short races guarantee last lap overtaking spectacle? I’m not a specialist, but all the riders complain about the impossibility of overtaking, probably due to the great pressure exerted by the wings on the front wheel. Eliminate expenses with sprint measures (that is, without having to think much) like drastically tighten the aerodynamic regulations at the “fairing and now” level and open technical competition to more than one tire supplier They would be measures that we know positively would increase the spectacle to the levels mentioned, those levels at which motorcycling was a mass sport. And no, let’s not fool ourselves or hide behind security, these measures that are no more dangerous than a sprint race and, since we are here, would mean a renewed filter for the level of riders who arrive and leave MotoGP without knowing very well why, as it seems will be the case with Remy Gardner either darryn binder in this same year from what we have seen in the Austrian Grand Prix.
And since I don’t want to be called a liar because of the headline, I’ll leave you with a gallery of stewardesses from some sponsor who in 2022 still haven’t understood the message of female objectification. End of the sprint.
