U.S. work visa delays have forced British-born motorcycle racing presenter Dylan Gray to sit out the inaugural broadcast of the new MotoAmerica Live+ streaming of the 2019 season opener at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta this weekend. All options are currently being explored to resolve the issue in a speedy manner for him to re-join the MotoAmerica team as soon as possible. Noted broadcaster Jonathan Green will fill in for Gray while the situation is being resolved.
“I’m extremely upset that I’m not able to be part of the first MotoAmerica Live+ broadcast,” Gray said. “Ever since Wayne (Rainey) first mentioned this project to me I have been looking forward to it immensely. Having met a lot of people in the paddock and having already communicated with most others in some way or another, I cannot tell you how nice the people here are. I sincerely hope that I can repay the kindness shown towards me by everyone involved in MotoAmerica in the very near future.”
“We are working diligently with Dylan to get this situation resolved,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “It’s an unfortunate situation for our season opener, but we’re confident the issues can be resolved and Dylan will be able to continue in his role with us.”
