I do not believe that banning TC and using rev limiters will reduce the costs or even the playing field too much.
One thing that would reduce costs and bring back a lot of new brands, is the promisse of stable rules, instead of the constant changes that have been made every 3,4, or 5 years, which render every work done over the years useless!
The irony of it all is that the 800cc bikes where at the most mature state of development when they (once again) changed the rules

Cont.
How many years did the old two strokes era last?
How many close races did we saw?
Its really frustrating to see the state of thins today, because we have safer tracks, bikes that are more powerful, but at the same time safer, better tires, but less spectacle?!
Clearly things do not look well!

Every change that has been made to MOTOGP rules over the course of the last 10 years has gone from bad to worse! Firsst they changed the type of engine used for almost 30 years of racing, then (and only after 3 years) changed the displacement, and again (after 5 years) changed back to the previous displacement!
Back then modified road engines where forbiden, and i even recall a certain team being prevented from entering a bike in the early days of the four strokes because they used a modified yamaha R1 engine.
Now modified production engines are allowed?!

I dont know of you guys see where i am going with all this?!
Just make a damm set of rules and live or die by them!
The thing that always separated MOTOGP from WSB was the differences between the bikes and the rules!
Now things are getting to a point at which it will be very difficult for someone without some bike racing knowledge to even tell them apart! And that is bad for the sport!
I mean, you know when you are watching F1, and DTM no?! Even if someone blindfold you you could still tell the difference by sound alone!?

If i didnt knew better and where a conspiracy theory freak, i would say that theres a plan going on to kill motorcycle racing so that car racing gets every bit of attention! but because im not i say that Dorna is killing the sport bit, by bit and unless something short of a miracle happens we are witnessing the last days of bike racing at its current form, because i sure as hell not going to wake up at 4am/5am to just to watch the australian Gp or malasyan Gp if an all CRT grid is what i have to see!

It's great to see someone else that looks at the big picture and is not a doom and gloom merchant,you are right about the Asian region,the following of motorsports in rhe region is unreal, @ aussie....

And who is the biggest name in motogp in the asian region aussie ? Its certainly not your beloved Stoner . MOTOGP needs riders with personality to promote and engage people in this sport if it is to survive. Do you think Casey is capable of doing that ! He's running scared just at the thought of a CRT level playing field. Not much of an ambassador for the sport is he.
