I'm going to make a small assumption and say that Karel rides a MotoGP bike better than you play Major League outfielder.

BTW, Daddy (Karel Sr.) doesn't just own Autodrom Brno, he owns Cardion (Czech biomedical company). Yes, they have a lot of money, which I believe Karel stands to inherit. He doesn't have to work or do anything else for that matter. Yet he studied and got his degree while racing the season a few years ago, because he doesn't expect things to be handed to him. He'd rather earn them.

From what I understand, Karel Sr. subsidizes the the cost of the Brno round because the expenses outweigh the profit, something to the tune of $2 million Euro IIRC with no assistance from the government though he brings a shitload of money to the Brno area in August. Without him and his efforts, we'd likely have one less round of MotoGP.

Judging by some of your posts, you seem to be relatively new to GP/MotoGP. If I happen to win big at the lottery, I would buy and finish the Balatonring. And guess what, if my son, who is named Hayden-Rossi by the way, wants to go MotoGP racing, you will see nepotism at it's finest. Send your dad my way; maybe I can talk him into buying the Yankees
Thanks from Calderara di Reno and able duc

Lol, I ain't scared. I've been going to GP's---> MotoGP since 1988 (yes, I'm an old fart) and have had friends who own/manage a team or work for factory teams for over a decade. Anyone who can dismiss Rossi as he does is either new, ignorant, or perhaps related to Gibernau or Biaggi lol
Thanks from Riki
