The MotoGP order was mixed up a little bit at Silverstone with the problems of the Tech 3 riders and Spies looking more in form. The circus moves onto Assen for the Dutch Grand Prix, an event Spies won last year.
The DTM visits the temporary circuit in Nuremburg known as the Norisring. It is where Hitler used to hold his big rallies, now with grandstand seating up on the podium with the track passing in front of it. It seems the BMWs are up to speed so all the usual suspects from recent seasons are worth consideration. Last year was a wet race. I have come to the working theory that DTM has more passing in races on the international-type tracks like Hockenheim or Spielberg, but little over-taking on the local tracks such as this one.
Kentucky is another 1·5 mile oval which featured its first Sprint Cup event last year, won by Kyle Busch. Thus it will be very difficult to call the event.
With MotoGP having such obvious choices and DTM being safer to call than a typical NASCAR race, I would think Kentucky be best eschewed. Avoiding bad weeks is generally the best way forward in this game.
