Damm, WSBk is the greatest racing on earth (with BSB) and they earn some money. And they have 6 brand on grid with 3 big factory teams.
MGP is just snoozefest without any intrest of sponsors and manufactures (just 3 brands + silly CRT)

As I see it, WSBK will get much closer to production racing, like BSB, so that MotoGP can be slowed down to CRT pace and still look fast. So much for using WSBK to develop electronics, Nakamoto San.

On the positive side, it will be much cheaper to be competitive in WSBK, as those engines that only last 400km will be a thing of the past. However, it will be years until we see track records come down again.

That's what sensible business minded people do. It's hard to make big companies shell out the dough in these tough financial times, unless u r Valentino Rossi. Motogp and WSBK are from the same family and it's easier to fight together. I'm sure both heads will work together to elevate the sport and attract more fans. More viewers means more sponsors. Then if the dooms day comes, they can merge together. Hopefully both will be alive and kickin...

I'm not making any predictions but the truth is this: MotoGP is often referred to as the "F1" of motorcycle racing, but in all honesty, it's never had the same recognition or investment. Sadly, it's becoming quite unsustainable in our new world economy. We only have three factories and Ducati (while seemingly saved from Audi) is still is close to the door. The money just isn't there. MotoGP is faced with a simple choice: Reduce costs or die.

This is the best use of the synergies that exist between the 2 series'. Especially during these economic times.

I think this will eventually work, but I could be wrong. Hopefully the racing doesn't suffer in each series. The business of each should beome stronger though.

I know some of the guys that work at Infront for WSBK, it is not doing as well as everyone thinks, financially.

To be honest, if you read the whole article, all they talk about excited this and that...one umbrella...fans excited...blah, blah...is just a bunch of jibberish with no specifics...the article has no content whatsoever and you ended up questioning yourself in the end...what? how? ooooook?
