He's still in the middle of a lawsuit with them over the whole MotoGP thing so its expected that he would be kicked off the track.

Don't try to sue someone and expect them to play nice with you.

They don't have to play nice BUT they have to play civil. This should be a PR disaster for the COTA *****s. KS was promoting, in good faith, but was axed out when it came time to put the ink to it. KS is one of US and without us there is no racing. I was going to make a nice roadtrip to see the new venue but will boycott now, screw the ugly greedy pigs who only see the dollars in racing. Granted, it takes dollars to make the whole thing work, but there seems to be no balance anymore. Kicking him off the track was just a ***** thing to do.

The lawsuit I assume has ruined any chance of him moving his racing school over to COTA. Everyone wants their share of the money and Dorna and COTA figured they would make more money without KS as a middleman. Days after the initial deadline for Schwantz to turn in the required paperwork, when it wasnt completed, Dorna terminated the contract for GP and we all can see that they went straight to COTA with a 10 year deal.

The track was designed for F1 racing, MotoGP is an afterthought and that is why Schwantz was able to get into negotiations with Dorna before COTA did.

It sucks to have a GP legend like KS unable to attend a GP race at a track down the street from his house all because of a business deal gone bad.
