If CVC weren't allowed to own both MotoGP & F1, I can't see how this deal will be allowed to go through.

If it is, WSBK will be the nett loser though.
Sad because WSBK has been on an upward curve for the last 6-8 years, while MotoGP has definitely been on a downward curve.

These guys are not going to dilute their profit potential by killing off wsbk, i think it will be the opposite in fact. They will streamline the events as best they can so they maximise their profits.
This could be good for both series imo

what upward curve is WSBK on?

ducati pulled out, yamaha pulling out and barring a miracle only a handful or riders can win a round.

any sort of CRT success and WSBK will be dead

On the surface it does appear to be a strange acquisition (having 2 championships owned by 1 company) especially with the new CRT class in MotoGP next year.

Next years calendar is mapped-out for MGP, with the WSBK schedule due at the next round but 2013 could be interesting....
