I agree about the single engine Moto2 being less interesting for that reason, it still does produce some exciting racing. Redding is right about Motogp and is a great rider who rode so well in the last race pushing beyond the limits and not throwing it down the road! :)

I agree with Scott. When compared to the likes of WSB or even Moto2 the current Motogp setup just isnt as exciting. Theres nowhere near enough depth to the field at the moment which too often leads to a drawn out field.

Its a shame this is the case at the pinnacle of the sport.

Also, Scott is a great talent who really punches above his weight on the machinery he has. I applaud his decision to move up to Moto2!!

True, close racing at the front has not been much in evidence lately. But there are good battles for position just behind the leader that go a long way toward making up any deficit there. The riders are all well known celebs which adds drama. can't say I have ever watched a support race. Too boring to see non-entities circulating.

I agree with redding currently Moto GP isn't that exciting to watch anymore compared to what it used to be like. while in the moto 2 class i like the fact you can be near the back one weak then right at the front the next an example would be C Corti on 1 point in the championship but still qualifies on pole position.

For me the 800cc rule has been a great failure (I preferred the wild 500's), but Moto2 has been a great success. It is a formula that allows talented riders to shine (rather than the bike, the electronics and some guys sitting at laptops) and some of the races this season have been screamers. Top riders in MotoGP should either go to WSBK or Moto2 because that's where the action is and that's where they can measure themselves against a far greater field of talent.

Mr Redding seems to be Britsh GP specialist... but I don't know why?
Silverstone was a new track to all, so it can't be previous knowledge of the circuit.

Moto GP is like F1- the fastest forms of motorsport rarely produce the best racing as the machines are honed for that 'one perfect lap' and 'one perfect line'.
Even though F1 has over 20 cars, it's still poor racing.

It also doesn't help that the top 5 or 6 moto gp riders are head & shoulders above the rest.
Compare that with WSBK- arguably 15 riders within a similar talent bracket.
