I don't know what MotGP is becoming, but it's not Grand Prix racing. You could let the CRT's run 2000cc capacities with an unlimited allotment of engines and they still wouldn't win! They don't have the money, full stop.

I agree with nomorecrt. The factories need to infuse MotoGP with production prototypes. Dorna continues to ape F1 with these "standardized" parts. If the factories don't come up with their own production racers Dorna is going to force them to produce them to Dorna tech specs, just wait and see.

all these suggestions are nice, the only way to attract other factory teams to the sport is by reducing the cost , no1 is willing to join the game if they dont have a sponsor, for example to best way to attract bmw would be if bradle jumped on the bike and got a german sponsor.lets face it how hard is it to get a sponsor now days

honda is the only team who has a stable sponsor, even with rossi at yamaha they changed sponsors several times and are now left with no sponson, but im sure they can find another since rossi is back.

at the moment the best option is to have the crt's around since next year it might be possible that the satellite dukes wont be around

lets face it dorna need to come up with some sort of agreement with honda and yamaha, because no1 will bother to join the club if 1) they cant compete and 2) ask for a high sum from a a sponsor.

it would be good if the new factories that joined would have some sort of advantage honda yamaha and ducati as rookies in the game i.

Next amendment
Factory teams are allowed 2 riders only and 2 of these riders at least must be Spanish (because we all know the world's best riders all come from Spain don't we??)

*** and Dorna doesn't own Yamaha yet( it just seems like it)

How about a formula similar to what the CART boys did in the 90's. All engines and chassis' made could be purchased by any of the teams. They would be standard, and freely available the teams. Same with chassis. You can't get any closer in performance without making it a one bike series. The CART races were great to watch because it boiled down to the driver and the team.

How about leaving the rules alone for a while? Or at least lessening them. No more spec this or spec that. All these specifications are precisely what is causing the costs to increase.

The situation echos 500cc gp racing of the early 90's. Poor grids of around 15 riders and some of them on old bikes.

The problem was solved by Yamaha providing engines for privateer teams to build their own chassis, e.g Harris and ROC. They were copetative in the right hands and not 2 seconds per lap off the pace.

Yamaha, Honda and Ducati should have to make available a customer engine and electronics package for 4 bikes each.

Including their two works and satallite bikes would fill up the grid nicely with competative machines. Problem being if they beat the works or satalittle bikes.

There will only be 7 facotry bikes at Bruno.
