3. Indian MotoGP is chaotic, motorcycle cargo is transported using old trucks
Preparations for the 2023 Indian MotoGP at the Buddh Circuit on Sunday (24/9) were full of chaos after the cargo of the riders’ motorcycles was transported using an old truck.
The Indian MotoGP could be one of the “toughest” this season. The reason is that there was chaos in various aspects before the first MotoGP race at the Buddh circuit.
Less than a week before the race, many team members have not yet received their visas. The result was that the original plan was messed up.
Race teams also have difficulty obtaining the food and drinks they need. As a result, they fear that the food will be contaminated, causing intestinal infections.
Besides the chaos, the one that attracted the most attention was when the cargo of MotoGP motorcycles was transported by trailer or open truck, usually used to transport containers.
