Will the CRTs challenge the manufacturer MotoGP prototypes at the slow and twisty Sachsenring?

MotoGP is heading for a brick's become boring and predictable. The gap between CRT and Proto to big. The solution is: 1. Do away with fancy electronics, let the rider take control again. 2. Do away with stupid one tire manuf rule. The bikes are being designed around the tires. It should be the other way around. Tire manuf's should be allowed to compete, a price cap should be placed on the tires sold on a race weekend. FP1, 2 & 3 bikes can use whatever tire they choose, but the make of tire used for quali must be used for race. No overnight special tires permitted. Only tires brought to race weekend by tire manuf's may be used. Bikes should not be permitted to have sole tire supplier contracts. Just a thought...

And another thing, if safety is a concern with the removal of electronics. Then single supplier limited Electronics package should be brought in. No wheelie control and all that other fancy crap. Just traction control nothing else.
And maybe all bikes on the grid should be production based machines, not SBK machines but proto versions that are at least available to the public, at a cost. That should open the door for other manuf's to field factory bikes as it provides a better insentive

So @The solution.
No single tyre, but single ECU.
Although I like the idea of them selling full blown racebikes, would sooner them sell the engines and let chassis builders do their bit. Thats how it was in the old days as well as the production race bikes.

I've got to agree with the comments above! Remember the 'good old days' when you could buy an RG500 and a few hot-up factory parts??

Would love to see domestic championships with this type of CRT bike and lots of wildcards entered in the GP's......

Hi everyone!

A Top 8 CRT Bike in the Sachsenring? No Way!

In a track known because it requires the use of the lower Gears most of the time would you dare to bet you money for bikes with underdeveloped Traction Control Systems? I wouldn't.

This hurts me, because I like the CRT concept (but not to be mixed with the pure prototypes), but I foresee a lot of highside crashes this weekend in Germany. I wish I'm wrong, but I'm afraid I'm right.
