Sounds like hypocrisy to me... the city of Speedway Click for map, the city hosting the MotoGP race of Indianapolis on the 14th of September, likes having the extra business. Hotels, restaurants, camping, airports, toll booths, hookers, you name it, everyone is going to win from the first ever MotoGP race on this famous race circuit. The people are walking around with dollar signs in their eyes.

But.... if you come on your motorcycle, you will be asked not to rev up your engine, or make any noise. At least, if the town elders have their way. They are proposing a new noise ordinance making it illegal to rev your motorcycle engine. During the race weekend, the Police will be out in force to ticket all bikes that make noise. The newly proposed ordinance will be voted on August the 11th.

It would seem that if you're in a car, you are allowed to rev your engine, even if you make more noise than a 747 taking off. But if you're riding on your 50cc moped and rev up your engine, your ass is theirs. Doesn't look like fair to me. Maybe people shouldn't bother going there, so the town doesn't get your hard earned money. Watch the race on TV.

Speedway Open link in a new window - shame on you. You don't deserve the MotoGP race.
