COTA vs Kevin Schwantz

Awhile back Schwantz filed a lawsuit against Cota. This has been going on for awhile.

Now this happened,



COTA and Kevin Schwantz
Statement by Kevin Schwantz

I have read several reports regarding my attendance at the MotoGP test last week in Austin. I would like to make this statement:

"I had been in Switzerland over the weekend where I was the guest speaker at the St. Gallen University. I returned to Texas on Tuesday evening and on Thursday I was at CotA for the MotoGP test, with a proper credential supplied by the Attack team, to coach Blake Young. Additionally I was an invited guest of the LCR Honda team.

While there, CotA security informed me that CotA management requested I leave the track immediately and was not welcomed at the circuit. CotA's security force also accused me of criminal trespass and warned I would be arrested the next time I entered the track.

This comes as a tremendous disappointment to Honda, Blake Young, and myself. Especially because I am single-handedly responsible for bringing MotoGP to Texas and for the initial design of the facility to accommodate MotoGP racing."

It is really sounding like they really might not want bikes at their track...


Or they are just a bunch of retards trying to hump a doorknob.

Singlehandedly brought MOTOGP to Texas? While I would not argue that KS had a huge amount to do with it, I would be honestly surprised if all it took was one person to make it happen. That being said, if he filed a lawsuit against the track and race organizers, why is this coming as a shock?

Even in this litigious world, it is a douchebag move.

There is an open lawsuit. I wouldn't allow him on my property either if he was suing me.

Regardless if I felt wrong or right in his lawsuit.

While i do not agree that he single handedly got MotoGP to Texas, I would agree that it was not likely to happen if he had not been involved when he was involved... and I agree that COTA screwed him over... I hope he wins... but I am still gonna be there, as it was obvious that he still desired to be involved. This is my opportunity to see it all up close and personal... will be corner working.
