Gps have been boring for the last couple of yrs, don't expect this yr to be any better, crts... Who cares! We entered the world of world sports car racing with in essence 2 different series on track at the same time, its suppose to be prototype racing, but with all the recent rules imposed over the last 10 yrs its steadily become less so, I can understand why dorna want to take wsb back to its roots and dumb it down, its embarrassing that a production series can boast as good as tech as in go, but then maybe that says a lot about the previous owners of wsb, and shows what a shoddy job dorna have done in the,last few yrs,, fact gp have only survived for one reason over the last 10yr or so........ROSSI

So lets get this straight. We have had weeks of close season, the team then flies all the way to Malaysia, they get an extra two days of testing and then due to the fact they actually haven't built the bike, Edwards gets one lap in?? With this kind of organisation they haven't a hope in hell of competing????

I was actually thinking more along the lines of the GP bikes out on Tuesday.But if ye want my take on the CRTs then here ye can have it,they are a race within a race and they do produce that bit extra what 12 Gp bikes couldn't,I enjoyed the battles last year between RdP and Aliex,Jimmy E had me smiling for the fact he was gonna do zip but in the end he handed Colin his a55 and so on.I would love a shot on a CRT, bet it's performance would blow me away.Would love to sit in a garage with a favoured case of beer and to study closley how good these bikes are put together,I bet close up they are a work of art.

Maybe if a team could get x3 of Maxs 2010 chain driven motors and allowed them to rebuild them after each race weekend they wouldn't be that slow and it wouldnt actually cost that much keeping the engines fresh.In the end the engine alocation rule is the brake on the power output of these engines

I know the CRT riders are out there giving it their all,and i admire that greatly.But i fail to see the point of having bikes out on the track that have no possible chance of winning a race.I dont know what the answer is and have never professed to,but to me,Motogp is about the absolute pinnacle of bike development.The fact is,WSBK machinery is superior to CRT at the moment and that shouldnt be the case.It should be the other way around.
