ah.. ok...
Well the Estoril circuit isnt goig anywhere anytime soon, so we're sure to hear the story of this weekend again for the next 2 years.

http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/...&article=27365

MotoGP at Estoril confirmed for two more years

On a weekend where Estoril welcomed the bwin.com Grande Premio de Portugal, the penultimate race of the 2006 MotoGP World Championship, the Circuit Administration took the opportunity to proudly announce the renovation of their contract with the series’ commercial rights-holders Dorna Sports. The agreement extends their existing deal to hold MotoGP races by another two years until 2008, and is the second renewal for the Estoril Circuit.

Present at the event were Secretary of State for Tourism Dr. Bernardo Trindade, President of the Circuit Administration Council Domingos Piedade, CEO of Dorna Sports Carmelo Ezpeleta, ITP President Dr. Luis Patrão and ITP Vice President Dr. Frederico Costa. Appropriately enough, the handshake for the deal between Messrs. Trinidade, Piedade and Ezpeleta took place on the starting grid of today’s MotoGP race at the Portuguese track.

Carmelo Ezpeleta - CEO Dorna Sports
“We are happy to renew the contract with the Estoril Circuit for two more years. The circuit have worked hard to make this event as popular as it is today, and work has been ongoing to bring it up to the necessary standards. There have been some great races over the years at this famous venue, and we hope that this can continue.”

Domingos Piedade - Chairman, Estoril Circuit
“This contract renovation represents Dorna’s recognition of the maginficent work carried out by the fantastic team here at the Estoril Circuit for MotoGP, including the excellent job undertaken by the government and Dorna itself. It is a great reward for everybody who has tried their utmost to bring this race up to the highest standard in the World Championship. Most importantly, it means that this magnificent race, which this year has welcomed 70,000 spectators, has sealed its place as an key event on the MotoGP calendar.”

yeah stoner has come off more than a few times this year, but the kid is a racer and is always pushing. He has a ridiculous amount of talent and ducati can see it. mick doohan started his career fast and binning it pretty often aswell and looked what happened. Stoner will find his feet next year.he is still in 7th in the championship.

I guess that leaves Sete going to Kawasaki.. I would have loved to Sete back on a Honda with LCR. Sete is definitely a better rider than Checa, next season will be fun with the 800s and all the changes.

with the good luck Sete is having i doubt that any of the factory bikes on the paddock will make him competitive next season, i also dunno about Stoner switching to another team using tires he was never familiar with but after all it's was his first time riding Michelin with LCR Honda so going with Bridgestones will be the same he just needs to get used to it very quickly.

I've always like Stoner too and thought he was going to do very well in GP, but holy christ he crashed a lot. I'm sure the new Ducati will have tons of power and Stoner will need to chill-out a bit and start being patient and more consistent. Just to be safe, Ducati better start working on those spares . . . .

Mang, I wish Stoner stayed on a Honda. I think that kid has more talent and is a pure racer, moreso than Dani Pedrosa could ever hope to be. The kid is balls out, and flies super fast. Honestly, I think his problem was mostly weight transfer on the 990s and the difference between it and the 250s. I think you'll see a very dominant Duc team with Stoner on board, alongside Capirossi. As far as, Sete is concerned. He's like Maverick in Top Gun (before Goose dies). He's dangerous. No one likes to be on the track with him because he's UN-SAFE. I would like him to fade into bolivia (as Mike Tyson would say). Carlos Checa on a Honda should be good. That Tech3 M1 was uncompetitive. Even James Ellison was running back of the pack a lot of times. The LCR Honda should help Checa's cause.

Eariler in the season I felt that if Stoner spent another year on the LCR Honda getting his footing, then switching to Ducati he could be a real contender. Looks like Ducati felt the same way. I feel that the Ducati fits his riding style best, I just hope he's got all of the crashing out of his system.

I think he'll be more successful on a factory backed Ducati 800 than a satellite backed Honda 990. The factory teams get all the good stuff, the satellite teams the hand me downs (though the satellite Hondas are eons better than the satellite other bikes).

I dunno, the satelitte Hondas are better than most of the factory bikes from the other teams. Only Rossi's Yamaha and maybe the Ducati can compete with them. But of course that means that this is a good move for Stoner. I think having more financial backing and being teamed up with Capirossi will be good for him. Capirossi was a former 250 champ so maybe he can help Stoner's transition and get him to stop losing the front.

Checa will do good on the Honda all he needs is a great bike to start on, from Zero to Hero, i'll bet he'd even get podium next year.
