Mandatory pitstops came to MotoGP in Australia as tyre wear concerns on the resurfaced Phillip Island track led to an emergency one-off format change.
Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

As a keen observer of the obvious it really is a miracle tires that literally cooked themselves to death internally didn't produce a much worse.  I tend to agree with Toby Moody in full.  This was, at the end of the day, a very good call.

Bridgepoint Announces MotoGP And World Superbike Series To Be "Brought Together" | MotoMatters.com

Bridgepoint, the venture capital organization has today announced that it has brought MotoGP and World Superbike, the two motorcycle racing series it owns, under a single umbrella organization. The reorganization will see Dorna Sports become the parent organization for both series, though Infront will operate as an independent entity and continue to organize World Superbike under its own banner. Infront has also been named as "marketing advisor and global advisor" for both MotoGP and WSBK.

The implications of this announcement are huge, but not immediately clear. The logic behind the move is impeccable: the two series are spending too much of their time competing against each other instead of working together to promote the sport of motorcycle racing. By combining their marketing efforts, the hope is that both series will be made stronger.
