"This is a positive sign in a time of crisis. Otherwise, we will see no growth,” he said.

Growth not always means a benefit to the masses. When economic growth occurs usualy only the elite and those close them benefit. For the rest it represents more competition and less money.

In motoGP it is not about more growth but closer racing at the sharp end. How many riders are required to do this? In 125cc racing as many as 6 riders...and sometimes more...were at times tussling for the win. So thats about all that is needed at most to provide the biggest spectakle. Even seeing a few or just two riders is ok.

But WSBK needs to be controlled more to ensure that their bikes are as close to the showroom ones as is possible.

Rome wasn't built in a day, neither are motorcycles developed, this year CRT bikes we be developed at the races, unlike factory bikes that spend days in the hands of test riders before being refind by the best.
It will take time like any building process, a quick build will usually result in a quick fall, just like Flamini when 2 years ago he said WSB had full grids of 36 because of the plans they put in place and no rule changes were needed during these troubled times.
Yea right

Asia has managed to survive the economical downfall up to an countries like India, Russia, Malaysia, Japan etc still have resources left...also MotoGP has been confined to Europe for a long time...its time to throw it out to the World.
2011 had an Indian Manufacturer Mahindra and also a rider named Sarath Kumar (racing for WTR-Ten 10 team) in 125cc category .
It'll be really good if it happens in India...F1 was carried out pretty its just wait and watch !
