"We have been able to increase the operating windows of our rear compounds to mean that we have allocated five rear compounds for the season, compared with the seven allocated for 2011"

bully for dunlop. we've got a report from both them and bridgestone. all's we need now is a report from michelin on M3...! :) and one from pirelli on CRT....! :)

oh that's right, nobody at dorna (or in control of that brand) has had the foresight to create such "mutually beneficial" arrangements. :rolleyes:

I find it interesting using different brands of tyres for all three Classes
I suspect this will make it more difficult for a rider who is good on dunlops to easily assimilate into motogp who use Bridstones with different characteristics
Ahla Elias in 2011 who previously has won a motogp yet could not come to terms with riding on Bridgestones I think the sport is lesser for it due to single tyre supplier in the different catagories
