@let's race

Banning traction control on gp bikes is not going to be easy.Dont compare it with BSB.Burgess said that these prototype engines need Electronics,without which it would be impossible to control these bikes as enery fraction joules of energy has been extracted out of these engines.Hence it would be very aggressive,& unrideable without it.Also,Filipo of ducati said the engines have reached their mechanical limit & its the electronics are the greatest area od development.

I'm not bashing anyone here but Dorna has a current world champion who, from what i've seen likes to keep himself to himself and doesn't court the world media too well...@LCtanner.

That just about sums it up. Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa. Three totaly boring individuals. And with the arrival of the next alien in 2013 (Marquez) there will be four boring aliens.

The next generation after Rossi. About as interesting to interview as the F1 guys.

Since when did motogp turn from racing to mass media entertainment.What do you expect Stoner,Lorenzo & Pedrosa to do,they are just being themselves.How entertaining were the former champions Doohan,rainy,gardner,Spencer.Whats so entertaing about rossi off track,The donkey helmet,chicken suit,Robin hood bow & all his clown antics??????.Funny thing is its ROSSI fanboys who complain about the current racers being boring,which i believe is another excuse to bash them.In a way,loosing a handfull of fast diminishing ROSSI fanboys like yourself & your pal Tanner wouldent hurt much.

I think the positive outcome of it would be that MotoGp could get rid of people like you,LCTanner,Ausrossi....& 1000s of your unregistered aliases & alteregos.You keyboard warriors dont contribute to this sport in anyway apart from being basing other racers,commenting baseless crap & all kings of hypocracy.Racing is a purist sport & dont need blind fanboys like you.

The Jap manufacturers do not rate WSB as a marketing tool except Kawasaki and they are a small company, don't say KHI are huge because KMC are about 1% of KHI.

Yamaha did not stop Edwards using a Yamaha engine, Poncheral just said it would be impossible for Goulon to design and build a bike in time, but they are looking at it for next year.

No manufacturer can stop you doing what you want to one of their engines once you have purchased it, that is what CRT is all about, you own the whole thing. The only manufacturer who got sour grapes was Honda over Gresini using an ART.

Percentage, MotoGP isn't a charity banquet. The GPC are well-paid racing executives at the top of their industry. They want accolades when all goes well. They deserve hell when they d1ck around.

If the GPC are looking for people to screw up at a much lower cost-point, I'd be more than happy to work for 1/4 of the average salary.

Mate the best post I have read in a long time you got it just about perfect,the only thing I would add is before rossi what about the huge crowds Gp got when Roberts,Rainy,Doohan,Spencer,etc,etc,were racing it must have been something with the racing, that was REAL entertainment thats my opinion.

Casey Stoner has now said he will quit if Dorna succeed with their plans for 2013!! Apparantley, Stoner isn't interested in riding bikes that will be "too easy and all the thrill and skill will be taken away" and will walk if Dorna put their plans into place!! Never mind the astronomical costs MotoGP has to suffer, or the lack of good sponsorship, or the global economic crisis, Casey Stoner seems to be thinking mainly about himself and not the sport in general. As all the changes would affect every rider there, what is Stoner's problem and why is he so against keeping this dwindling sport alive??? Casey needs to realise he might not have a choice to make if MotoGP seriously runs out of funds etc., so I think he should show a bit more enthusiasm and interest in something that has earned him a fortune!!!
