Wild Rumors Abound: Schumacher To Race 3 MotoGP Races In 2008

It sounds almost too bizarre to be true, and our research has failed to turn up any further confirmation, but the Spanish website DailyMotos.com is reporting that Michael Schumacher is to take part in three MotoGP races in 2008.

Schumacher is supposed to appear at several MotoGP tests in preparation for his wildcard appearances, starting at Sepang.
