""From now the MSMA will again become a member of the Superbike Commission and together the teams, FIM, MSMA and us will decide the best possible rules to control costs for 2014."

Just great. So now the manufacturer's will be able to join the committee so that rules in WSBK can get fudged up and we get a situation like MotoGP with the scattered field & rubbish actual racing? I hope not, but actually encouraging factories to dictate policy seems like a lunatic step.

I understand and ma happy enough with controlling costs and the statement of trying to see that all mfrs give teams competitive equipment. But if Dorna let WSBK's racing get screwed up through weak management and leadership......

jokes. I cant believe with all the emphasis on trying to save money that MotoGP is not dumping traction control. There is no need for it in racing, especially when its holding back the riders who dont get as much support, its such an obvious thing to get rid of but it seems some of the top riders cant ride with out it (hint hint JL). GET RID OF TRACTION CONTROL, only let WSBK use what comes stock, no way the riders will use that TC, and if they do that means the factories will be giving consumers a better deal.
