Dorna are going to shown as complete tvvats for agreeing to the CTR's.

Inexperienced riders, + non prototype bike = dangerous track obstructions for the fast aliens on their blazing fast bikes.

What a shambles this season is going to be.

CIrcus its CRT not CTR , and where are the inexperienced riders? Check out the names in the line up and do some research, and technicaly they are prototypes as they arent for public use

Circus, only 3 have no Motogp experience, only 1 has no prototype experience.
Again how can you people know what these bikes are going to be like? they have had tiny developement, the new motogp bikes have had hundreds of laps developement in Japan before we see them. If you look at the release pictures these bikes are pure prototype with beautiful chasis(I dont know about the Aprilia).
I will say again Motogp throughout history (yes it was around a long time before Rossi) have had to deal with backmarkers, look at when WCM got banned and they put a ROC and Sabre on the track, people applauded them trackside (that means actually going to a race).
This will be a crossover year for GP and its great that we get the private chassis builders on board again they have been away too long.

Surely they will be well-prepared for the season... I think the Speedmaster team with West tested zero so far. Wouldn't be too surprised if some of these teams couldn't even start the season.

Bird, Ioda and Gresini have yet to test either. The difference for them they are not limited to testing like the full Motogp bikes.
It amazes me that nobody complained about backmarkers in WSS last year or is it nobody cares? Over half the field were more than 3 seconds a lap behind the leaders with the back end being 7.
Although the difference there most of them had broke down after half a dozen laps so they weren't noticable.

Bring on the CRT's this is the way forward in the current economic climate, 2012 will not be a classic year, 2013 on will thou - 2014 we will see them at the TT... bring it on.

Exactly knowfukall.
BSB should be at least including moto2 next year like Italy and Spain, definately Moto3. In a few years return to how national championships used to be, top class with proper built race bikes, whatever the engine.

re: "Bring on the CRT's this is the way forward in the current economic climate"

except "the economy" is not what's most responsible for us having the CRT model. we only reference the economy as an easy scapegoat to continuing putting off the grunt work of dealing with the real source of the problem. there's a "patent" on the this kind of behavior.
