How the 2022 Argentina MotoGP was saved – and the questions it raises

The factors which risked the cancellation of MotoGP’s Argentina Grand Prix were consequences of the current world crisis, with pragmatism the key to the solutions that saved the race weekend. But wider lessons can be taken from the situation for the MotoGP calendar, while it also offers other intriguing questions

It’s 6:41am on 1 April at Mombasa’s airport in Kenya and Flight BSC4042 has taken to the sky having had a valve in one of its Boeing 747-200 engines replaced overnight. The plane - EX-47001 - has been stranded on the ground in Kenya since Wednesday.

On any other day, a mechanical issue for EX-47001 would never have been a point of discussion. But on this occasion, it was one of five cargo planes carrying MotoGP freight from Lombok in Indonesia – scene of the second round of the 2022 season last month.
