1. Since Austria, reports have continued that KTM is losing patience with Bradley Smith, and that they may swap his role with Mika Kallio, promoting Kallio to the MotoGP team and making Smith the test rider. Also the venue for this years British round has not been announced "INTERESTING"

Back in September I know there was a draft calendar issued with British GP Venue TBC, but right now on MotoGP.com they are showing it as Silverstone...

I think it’s unlikely ever to be at COTW, but I’d love to see it back at Donington

The Welsh circuit has been abandoned, as it should have been from the start

Quite where all the money Silverstone made for them went I do not know

No-one seems to be asking, as for the past 3 years the COTW has been the official promoter of the Silverstone race, not Silverstone!

Unless something has changed since after the end of the season, when KTM categorically stated that Smith would remain with the team as race rider for 2018, then I think you might be looking at out-of-date reports.

thanks Dani.

Spectacular results from Dani, Jorge, Crutchlow, Miller and Rins.

Must be some head scratching going on with Marquez and Rossi.

Zarco is not contracted to Yamaha... his contract is with Tech3.... hence why when Rossi broke his leg last year Zarco could not be promoted to sub for him.
Tech3 said at the time Yamaha were aware of the Tech3 being nothing but a customer, with T3 responsible for contracting their own drivers, sponsors etc, and that Yamaha knew not to even think about asking to use Zarco.

Having said that I know not how long remains on Zarco's Tech3 contract.

Not sure thats right

Tech 3 always operate on a one rider is Yam another is Tech 3. Happaned with Cal, Dovi, Spies, Smith and Pol. One Yam, One T3.

I am fairly sure Zarco was the Yam man and Folger was the Tech 3 rider.

They would not have removed Zarco for a few rides on a factory bike coz of contracts etc, nothing to do with anything else.

It is just not that easy to nick riders from contracts anymore. From other series perhaps, but not necessarily from within the same class.

From Autosport interview with Yamaha team manager Lin Jarvis last year
Quote:
Yamaha opted not to field a replacement for Rossi at his home grand prix, instead fielding a sole works M1 for Maverick Vinales.

However, the Japanese manufacturer is obliged to run two bikes at Aragon, and Jarvis says there are four options available to Yamaha should Rossi be unfit to ride.

He outlined its pair of World Superbike riders, Alex Lowes - who replaced an injured Bradley Smith at Tech 3 Yamaha last year for two races - and Michael van der Mark, as well as Japanese test riders Katsuyuki Nakasuga and Kohta Nozane.

This rules out satellite Tech 3 riders Johann Zarco and Jonas Folger, who are contractually tied only to the French outfit and not to Yamaha itself.
