As much as I think this guy is a fool, he is right in trying to make it more of a show but in many ways it will also kill it for the die hards

Casey was smart to get out as it will soon no longer be racing but pre= programmed bike jockeys

The hard fact of the matter is, if you want great racing, you would have to take almost all of the money/sponsorship away from the racing.

You cant have great racing when there are so many heavy interests/money involved, just cant happen. The more rules and restrictions you place to make the racing more fair just stifles competition and takes away the spirit.

WSBK is better than MotoGP because the bikes at least have something to do with whats on offer/relevant to the 'consumers'

Prototypes will always favor the deep pockets, and nobody really wants to watch a single make prototype racing class, imo.

If I were in charge of it all I would merge WSS/Moto2 & MotoGP/WSBK, any thing prototype would have to be affordable/on offer to consumers, and get rid of traction control, because the pilot still has a clutch lever, and the ability to balance a bike and pick a new line.

Keep Moto3, but turn it in to cup racing, and just force the red bull guys to race in Spain or where ever.

Why not go the same way as F1.

Only engines supplied by the factories. Then it's up to the teams how they use them.

And bring back the 2 strokes and the ****el.

Cap the budgets.

Make for some interesting racing.

his vision is possible, provided that:

1. give more leeway in engine design (no more maximum bore size) and maximum number used, but exotic technologies such as pneumatic valves needs to be outlawed. just like F1, pneumatic valves is the reason why the engine costs sky-rocketed and very few manufacturers can produce competitive engines within that high cost. in fact, no road cars use pneumatic valves after 20 years of introduction.
2. free ECU design for all and allow all those gizmo including traction control. again, production bikes will benefit from these and the cost can be absorbed into production.
3. outlaw carbon disc brakes and use non-ferrous metal discs. like the pneumatic valves, no production bike/car use carbon brakes due to limitation of those items and the use of metal discs can see the cost be absorbed into production while the final production product may benefit from the R&D in racing.

to those who doubt whether item 2 and 3 will widen the gap, they should
