Episode 161: 2008 Season Review Part ii: Rossi Resurgence

* Donington Park not too happy about decision to move British GP to Silverstone
* Review of the next four races of 2008: China, France, Italy and Catalunya

- Jules and Bob continue the 2008 season review with races 4, 5, 6 and 7 at Shanghai, Le Mans, Mugello and Barcelona. We also chat a little bit about a press release put out by the Donington Park circuit concerning the decision to move the British GP from Donington to Shanghai in 2010. Needless to say, the chaps at Donington are more than a little upset about it. We did have some technical difficulties right in the middle of our call, so we had to finish up on a cell phone, but the conversation is still good stuff and I think you'll enjoy the show!
