I was one who didn't really understand this Covid-19 thing being as serious as it is turning out to be. I believed the racing season would be delayed, but would resume after things returned to normal. :-( :retard:
Kawasaki ZX-9R Ninja EVAP sE1. At the track she's said to be outclassed, but on the street, she reigns unmatched. You’re encouraged to challenge that claim. I pick the course. -- Mods: Carbureted, not Fuel Injected, Nissin caliper upgrade, SuperTrapp Aluminum Racing Series exhaust (Made in USA), ZG sport-touring shield, Keihin rejetted, AEM wideband AFR gauge, éan creiche malar stripes.

Tbh., I think it's more of a financial decision in this particular case than them worrying about the virus.
Sure, it's a higher risk and all that but in theory they could limit the people involved to a minimum, making everyone do a covid test beforehand,
the team wearing masks, etc. and - this is the important part - no spectators, no media, no posing models, .. nothing like that.
Just the ppl. required for the actual racing and only TV/web broadcasting.
..but why would they wanna do that now(?)
