Back in the 500cc era V2 were making trouble to V4 at Sachsenring and I even remember that in one year, Valentino's 250 cc pole lap would guarantee him a very high spot on 500cc grid.So who knows?
But CRT isn't as well engineered as those 500cc V2's, too...

Fact is the prilias crt engine is down on power to the WSB,20bhp less? Max will throw another engine to nip out of the pits but the CRT has to make do with just 12 engines per year and that meant detuning them to last the championship.

Like I said before lets see the 2010 motor,use the last race engine for practice and on sunday morning put the new engine(full Power)and let the ponies out of the box to see what it can do.

The CRT teams will never be able to compete with the multi million pound factory teams with all the best engineers and electronics experts working for them never mind the best riders in the world

i believe dorna made hundreds of million dollar from motogp, but why they don't wanna help the satellite teams with maybe 3 million dollars each so they can rent a better prototype bikes instead of racing those stupid CRTs, 3 million x 5 (teams) = 15 million

ART's are down 30bhp on the WSB Aprilia, last week they were given gear driven cams on the Aspar bikes but the problem is ART don't think they can get the milage turning the wick up. If anybody thinks that the Honda V2 was better engineered in the chassis you need to get close to these bikes, the FTR is a work of art (not ART)

Dorna are not making 100's of millions and the latest interview he says he helps the factories as well which is wrong, as for Satelite teams if Dorna give them 3m the factories put the lease price up to 3.5, thats what it fed up with.

Honda's attitude is getting better with their intention to build a proper production GP bike (ah takes me back)not a dumbed down WSB bike for 600k each.

The latest thing for CRT bikes on the cards for next year is spec Magneti Marreli ECU as Dorna believe this is the main area where CRT are struggling, looking at Hernandez on track with his Motec I can believe it.
