Whilst covering the final round of the 2010 MotoGP season at Valencia in November, I was lucky enough to score an amazing interview with Sergi Sendra – he’s the Director of Dorna Sports TV Production, and I’d spent a while organising the interview so that I could publish a feature across my various MotoGP sites on the story of just what it takes to produce the international MotoGP TV feed. He was a great guy, incredibly helpful, and it was a fascinating hour or so of learning a great deal about a subject close to my heart. It’s a nice long read, and if you’ve any interest in MotoGP or TV production, then I hope you’ll enjoy it. Here goes…

We strongly object to the Chamber’s recent comments opposing the EPA’s effort to limit greenhouse gases.Apple supports regulating greenhouse gas emissions, and it is frustrating to find the Chamber at odds with us in this effort. We would prefer that the Chamber take a more progressive stance on this critical issue and play a construtive role in addressing the climate crisis. However, because the Chamber’s position differs so sharply with Apple’s, we have decided to resign our membership effective immediately. I never need new reasons to love Apple.
