haha blame the organizers . Suzuki feel they can just come and go with a half ar$ed effort. The one rider team springs to mind.
Just cos a load of you own suzukis no need to stick up for these bozos

Was going to post about how fuc$ing retarded that dorna statement was but you've all said it already.
Glad to see dorna think CRT is such a
Great success, that we all give enough of a flying fuc& about CRT as to put one more obstacle up in front of what will be a full factory bike, plus you never know, maybe even some satellites.
Thanks dorna.

@ pp916 "OK, so if we project the hypothesis further and the remaining factories are squeezed out of Motogp in favour of a grid full of CRT's.....who supplies the base engines for CRT? Who supplies all the engines for Moto2? Who supplies the majority of the engines in Moto3?"

Suppliers of engines? What about all the specilaist tuning firms building race engines from every make there is right now? Moriwaki and the like? Without factories there to buy / politic guaranteed wins & give no-one else a hope, they'd be lining-up to be on a MotoGP grid, with sponsors to back them.

but rsmick, it is a house of cards, you say the grid slots are valuable if they are limited as they are to 24, and someone new wants to join the circus. but that relies on having plenty of firms banging on the door wanting to come in, at the moment moto gp is struggling badly for teams which is why crt was born in the first place, having suzuki knock on the door and perhaps be turned away by dorna so that foward racing can remain is daft, and for those of you saying suzuki did this wrong or did that wrong blah blah, it is their team and they can do what the hell they like with it, if they do badly they dont win and sponsership dries up that is the nature of the sport. none of this is helped by the constant rule changed which have been mentioned on other posts, you need to remember the size of suzuki and ducati for that matter compared to the might of hrc and yamahas r&d dept.

Carmelo Ezpeleta makes me cringe. Hell, he makes Bernie look like a nice guy.

Would love to see Suzuki back if they are willing to give it a serious go, I loved my GSXR600.

It would be great to see Suzook back racing at the top level.
The thing is, as national superbike & WSB get ever more advanced (ie costly) I wonder if they will ever be interested in anything more than a bit-part (if at all).
Suzuki make some fantastic roadbikes (and roadbike-based superbike racers) but their race teams' history is one of grinding out GP wins on a shoe-string & in the face of often patchy & little factory support.
Simply put they neither have the resources nor the interest (see Garry Taylor's tales of how the Suzook racing division was seen as a step to be quickly gone through and passed on to greater - non-racing - things).
It makes their championships all the more impressive but I have my doubts they will come back in much strength.

Bring Back Suzuki and Kawasaki, and then get rid of the CRT's - they add no value to MotoGP at all, and will never be a threat to the factory bikes. MotoGP is the one sport I follow whole heartidly, but honestly cant be bothered which CRT comes first in each race.
I would like to see the likes of de Puniet, Spies or Colin Edwards on a Suzuki or Kawasaki. Especially in the case of Edwards and de Puniet, their sheer talent is wasted on the CRT's, and I can only imagine how frustrated it must be for them. Who knows, maybe even Stoner would be enticed into coming back for one of these manufacturers - Fingers crossed.
In the meantime, lets just get this 2013 season underway - it can't come soon enough, and I cannot wait to see VR46 close to the top of the timing boards again. The championship needs it, Rossi fan or not.

You REALLY don't get it do you? Suzuki is v doubtful, and Kawasaki (& Aprilia, BMW etc.) don't WANT to spend Millions to be very publicly embarrassed by Yam & HRC.
And why would they? The rules massively favour Yam/HRC as they already have 99.9% sorted packages, and the Testing Restrictions prevent others getting the time//data they need to have a hope of closing the gap.
You aren't going to get more prototypes (and it will be made certain that ANY new Satellite bikes will ALWAYS be outclassed by the Factory versions). So not a fair race then.
At least going all CRT makes it possible for ANY team to have a fair chance to compete and win.
You say you want something like a spoiled kid stamping his foot - who's gonna
