Hooray, another back marker who is going to be lapped.

These publicity stunts which "fill the grid" are not the way to make MGP racing closer, they're merely mobile chicanes for the top 7.

Essentially you have three different classes of bikes racing in one event, The factory prototypes, The Satellites, and the CRT's. what on earth are Dorna thinking, do they really think that this is a) Safe, b) entertaining for the spectators ?.

Dorna, please please ask the "tea lady" for her input, I know she'll have a clue, unlike the top 1% of clueless Dorna upper management.

Regardless of what the moto gp competition is like we need bikes on the grid so it is a good thing and another factory involved is also very good. Competitiveness will come in the future.... We all hope.

Also for riders I hope Chris Veremulen goes well this weekend so he can jump on the Suzuki he should never of left from!

All the best this weekend hope for good weather and a healthy Ducati!!!

This is what CRT is all about, and what the world championship should be all about, making a motogp entry within reach of any clued up frame builder and engine shop. Bring on the wildcards to bring back interest i reckon, there's nothing like a local guy on a local machine at his local circuit to drum up some crowd support. BTW, haven't seen any ridiculous lapping incidents so far in the 2012 season, maybe this is all the scare mongers and the drama queens have to offer on the subject of CRT being in the world championship. I certainly haven't seen any rational argument for CRT to not be part of it all.

At I like Suz but
No one needs to ask the tea lady, she's taking part with her tea trolley under the CRT rule.
But seriously I agree with your comments. nothing about the CRT makes sense other than they build a prototype chassis. But most end up copying the chassis their engine is from. I'm looking at you Aprilia. Standard road engines that are 30 to 40 horses down on the prototypes and slower around the track than moto2. Now thats what I call entertainment..........

Yeah but Moto2 is in it's third year of racing whereas CRT is only 3 races into it's first year. Moto2 is more developed which is why the top moto2 riders are beating the bottom CRT riders. This happens in all classes I.e. top supersport faster than bottom WSBK riders. CRT will be good once they get it sorted but people have to be patient - It will take another 2 years for them to get to max potential.

Finally wildcards at MotoGP, we should be happy with them instead of bashing.

It's true that there are 3 classes in GP now, but they are: Lorenzo, Stoner, Pedrosa at the front, the CRT bikes at the back + the rest between them.
