According to the Statesman, the Kevin Schwantz is going to battle the Circuit of the Americas track (home of the Austin GP) in February.
In case you haven’t kept up with this ongoing war of words (and now lawyers), it boils down to this: Schwantz said he had a contract to help bring MotoGP to Texas and promote the event, track management says he didn’t fulfill his contract in time, so they cut him out of the deal and arranged it themselves.
Much ballyhoo and brouhaha has ensued since the beginning of this debacle, probably reaching its pinnacle when Schwantz said he was thrown out of the track last spring while visiting as a guest of MotoGP racers. You can read more about it here and here and here …
Anyway, the grim saga will hopefully reach its conclusion in court in February, when Schwantz sues COTA management and COTA counter-sues Schwantz. The jury case starts on Feb. 10, and is scheduled to run for 10 days. That’s likely going to mean a lot of he-said, she-said. Apparently, even Dorna officials are supposed to make depositions, so there’s surely going to be lots of juicy gossip when it’s all said and done.
