Your edits to Italian motorcycle Grand Prix[edit]

You appear to have added the following:

The Italian motorcycle Grand Prix is a motorcycling event that is part of the Grand Prix motorcycle racing season. Before 1991, Italy had previously held a round of the world championship, known as the Nations Grand Prix.

in this edit back in 2006.

Is there any historical source for the Italian motorcycle Grand Prix being called Nations Grand Prix? And if so, in what countries/languages? It does not Google, except for Wikipedia and Motogp.com - is the latter where you sourced it, from a modern website, almost qualifying as self-published? Further compounding the confusion is a redirect created by @Orsoni: which is just bouncing around to itself.

It started out with me intending to simply add an image to a BLP (with a caption 2nd place to Mike Hailwood, Italian Grand Prix) and not recognising the infobox link, formatted as [[Italian motorcycle Grand Prix|Nations Grand Prix}}, but so far I've spent 30 minutes checking period mags, books and net, trying to understand the basis for this, because I suspect something's wrong here. Is there any historically-provable, hard-copy basis? Am I missing a subtle connection somewhere? Thanks.--Rocknrollmancer (talk) 15:01, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

I can see you've logged in a couple of times recently - I would still like any comments on this Nations Grand Prix which I couldn't verify. Thank you.--Rocknrollmancer (talk) 20:26, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
Much obliged for the info to my talk page - certainly is convincing and I appreciate the lengths you've gone to in providing the different sources. I've had a quick look and will digest it further later. I only found the motogp.com reference and I am sceptical about most websites. I can understand you not doing much on Wikipedia as I am, too, curtailing my activities during 2015 with just a little prose, mostly adding citations, images and logos. Thanks and regards.--Rocknrollmancer (talk) 22:56, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
