Let not forget this bike doesn't need to comply with the engine limit rule (I assume). it could be tuned to the hilt. The engine will only have to last one race.

The advantage of CRT has allowed a new player to showcase their ability on the premier world stage of motorcycle road racing.
How competitive they are is not as important as promoting diversity of MotoGP bike builders.
No bike builders, no racing!

Who was the last successful home town bike builder in premier class GP racing - Konig?

Interesting comment about tuning to the hilt- only needing to last one race.
It reminds me of a bloke I knew through racing who would qualify and race in some big events and then retire at three quarter race distance after leading most of race.
He had to retire because the bike was as illegal as hell, but it sure got the attention future sponsors.

"Who was the last successful home town bike builder in premier class GP racing"

Surely would have to be Kenny Snr, plus he started fron scratch and designed engine and all, even a four-stroke for the Moto GP era prior to his final fling with KTM and then Honda power.

But if you're looking smaller scale rior to that you'd probably have to look back to the joint effort between the Swiss Auto concern and Serge Rosset of ROC for a complete "small time" effort.

It's a concept that pretty much died with the introduction of the MGP concept and it's one aspect that will hopefully be revived with CRT.
