Why are people calling CRT's mobile chicanes. This was a unique race were anything, and kinda did, could of happened.... How many times has a CRT been lapped this season?
So is rossi, on a marque brand, a moblie chicane cuz he got lapped? Didn't Ellison overtake Rossi when the race had settled down, That should do his ego a nice timely boost (tongue firmly in cheek)!! And Pirro finished in 5th... God these CRT's are slow :)
In essence they are protypes because of the combination of non factory frame and customer engine and if it produces racing like it did today then i'm all for them

Shamorone that pretty stable CRT was ahead of 2 factory bikes. The biggest problem I saw was a bit wild by Lorenzo being a bit too keen to get past, but he did not know that Pedrosa had just had a problem and was 2 seconds back. Probably down to lack of inexperience lapping riders that does not happen that much since 2000 when for forty years it had been common place.

But why was Danny right on his tail 2 laps before? Oh yes it was becuase one of those wobbling factory bikes with Barbera on it got in the way and lost him 2 seconds.

What's all the fuss about? To use Lorenzo's own words "I tried to overtake Ellison and made a mistake on the wet tarmac.A big highside" Lorenzo doesn't blame Ellison,only himself for picking the wrong moment/place to try an overtake.It's as simple as that,isn't it? (What about that boy Marquez! He's going to ruffle some feathers isn't he? can't wait)

Listen I was there and caught the whole crash on camera.
Ellison was not to blame because their were no BLUE FLAGS, shame on the marshals.

We were happy that Jorge was okay.

If you watched the race you would of seen pedrosa make a mistake and run wide,crts had nothing to do with it. Danny even admitted to making that mistake.Nothing personel mate, but get your facts right. cheers

Jack can you read?

"but he did not know that Pedrosa had just had a problem and was 2 seconds back"

But why was Danny right on his tail 2 laps before? (meaning on Lorenzo's tail) Oh yes it was becuase one of those wobbling FACTORY bikes with Barbera on it got in the (Lorenzo's) way and lost him 2 seconds.
