☢ Massive Fallout Contamination After Typhoon Roke Yellow Powder With Rain Radiation Sickness ☢
☢ Jim Al-khalili BBC Propaganda That Fukushima Nuclear Fallout Is Safe ☢
I enjoy racing in most forms. And these last months I have been in discussions with racing fans about the races that are going to be held in Japan. The MotoGP (Motorcycle racing) Grand Prix of Japan event is going to be held at Motegi in Japan this upcoming weekend. And fans from all over the world are going there. These events usually bring together some 100 000 racing fans from all over the world and it's a big thing.
However with the Fukushima disaster there have been many discussions about how safe it really is to go there. And many riders and teams have also talked about this. Now back when Rossi said this the news that 3 full meltdowns had indeed happened at the reactor units were not out. Atleast and it still is not known to all that there have been full meltdowns were the nuclear fuel have breached the pressure vessels.
Valentino Rossi says : The main reason is that the centre is not under control. Two or three days ago there was another earthquake. If something wrong happens when we are there: this is the biggest fear, the main reason."
Valentino Rossi conceded that various pressures meant the riders were not united over a possible return to Japan, but added that voices within the paddock were also concerned about the event.
"For me its difficult that all the riders are agreed because there is a lot of pressure for the future - with contracts for example - so I think there are some riders that risk more, some less.
"There are a lot of people in the paddock, like mechanics, that are scared to go too. As riders we have a lot of weight on our shoulders - this is the situation.
"With the safety commission we were just nine or 10 riders (in total), so we need to think before we decide."
Well Rossi and the others are right to be concerned. But now IRTA hace restricted the MotoGP teams from using their own personal food supply when coming to Japan!!
IRTA restricts MotoGP teams from taking personal food supply to Japan
International Racing Teams Association (IRTA) has warned the MotoGP teams not to carry any type of food items to Japan.
The teams are conscious about the nuclear radiation at the surroundings of the Twin Ring Motegi circuit.
A disastrous earthquake and tsunami shook Japan earlier in 2011. During the trauma, a nuclear plant, Fukushima was breached and caused threats of nuclear radiation in the country. Though the plant is about 100 kilometres away from Motegi circuit, but the effects were expected to be causing trouble at the venue.
In order to be cautious, many teams requested to take their personal food supply to Japan. However, the IRTA issue an order which read, “We have been asked by Dorna to inform you that you should not pack food with your freight. Discovery by the Japanese Customs could result in delays or penalties imposed by the Japanese authorities.”
Earlier in the season, following the earthquake disaster, many riders decided to boycott the Grand Prix of Japan. The biggest problem was to confirm the intensity of radiations.
Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi and Marco Simoncelli were the likeliest to skip the event. Many other riders also showed their concerns about the safety measures.
The IRTA document further stated as, “We repeat that, in our opinion, transport of food is unnecessary. Government agencies have not issued any general warnings about food consumption. Furthermore the independent report commissioned by Dorna reported on sampling and testing of many types of food at Motegi and the surrounding area and found absolutely no problems.”
After a lot of criticism on the Japanese event, the International Motorcycle Federation (FIM) and Dorna Sports called ARPA agency to do its research. The ARPA took detailed tests and searched for any kind of radioactive problem or its after affects.
After a detailed testing, the French agency declared in a report that Motegi and its surroundings are safe for MotoGP to conduct its event. Finally, the riders have agreed after a report was issued but are still a bit sceptical about it.
