Colin is the Man no doubt..!! If Motogp is a famaly he have to be on the Show=).. For me Dorna was Wrong on the Formula.. They where allways concern on making Motogp a realiable market for 4 stroke bikes, this was the way of bring new manufactors to Motogp and they where right a 4 stroke formula was needed to make a better show, but how we will know what the Future is?? Can him the Future Motogp bikes starting worcking on Hybrid bikes i mean Hybrid with eletric engines and other thinghs that will be the future?? the CRT Formula is just a limitacion on tecnology developent, its like to wach new Wsbk bikes for 2013 or 2014.. If they where smart they would let the 2 strokes bikes on the grid and just allow the 2 stroke tecnology to be more developed and maybe with this new tecnology they allready had one bike more cheap, competitive to fight with 4 strokes and offcorse allways better then CRT bikes, maybe building a new market of Street bikes 500ccc and te same time this new 2 strokes wo

Has any noticed that Edwards jr seems to have an extra arm, thats probably why Jorge looks a little uncomfortable, nothing to do with being stood next to his future team mate (hopefully not) but he is the only one to notice the extra limb!

All the moaning about the gap to the front is ok but back in the early 90's when Yamaha leased V4 two stroke engines to Harris and ROC the gap to the slowest rider was bigger than CRT .... some tracks the slowest guy was near 9 seconds a lap slower !!
The odd thing is , this week in MCN a Honda guy was saying that a WSB spec Fireblade on Bridgestones was only a second slower than the RCV MOTOGP bike ... on that basis why can't these guys get a tuned WSB engine in a bespoke chassis closer than they are,
The new Honda customer bike for next year looks good right now and for less than a CRT bike.

"you are wrong on this one Brian, EBR are the only ones NOT using TC, the Monster Yammis have THE BEST TC in the AMA superbike field."

Hayes didn't use TC last year and is only using the lowest setting this year.

The rest of the AMA field, aside from the EBRs are using full TC.

an even better idea would be to ban pneumatic valves, limit revs so ducati wouldnt have an advantage with its desmo. and make the manufacturers produce customer racers only. max price 500,000 euros. thats funnt thats the same as what honda are doing with there customer RCV bikes. ok the factory teams can get ahead with developement but at the start of the year there all on the same package. just give a set time where the parts must be available to buy to to other teams to level it out, say 3 races of 1 month. if each manufacturer built 20 bikes 2 each rider theres 30 on the grid with competitive machinery. not hard is it.
