Litigation turns ugly in Austin GP saga

0

The Circuit of the Americas has released the following statement regarding a lawsuit filed by Kevin Schwantz. The issue stems over what Schwantz claims as the legal promotional right to any Moto GP race in Texas and COTA sees it differently. Here is COTA’s comments:

“It makes no sense for Mr. Schwantz to pursue legal action in this matter. We were informed by DORNA, the organization that holds the rights for the MotoGP racing series, that Mr. Schwantz has no contract to promote a MotoGP race in Texas,” Circuit spokesperson Julie Loignon said. “To be clear, Mr. Schwantz never had an agreement to conduct a MotoGP race at Circuit of The Americas, and to our knowledge, he has no agreement to conduct an event at any Texas racetrack. Perhaps, that is why he is reacting this way, out of embarrassment, and is making false claims to the court and media.

“We know race fans would love to see a MotoGP event at the Circuit, and it is good to know that the door is open to make that happen at our new world-class venue in Austin.”

Wow, that’s getting personal. What are your thoughts?
