MotoGP » Gremlins limit track time for CRT teams at Sepang


Only Danilo Petrucci is able to put in some meaningful lap times on the first day of a special test for the CRT teams using the 'standard' ECU in 2013...

@ Gremlin

yes you can say aprt from Colin Edwards, but the rest wouldn't be in top WSBK teams. I'm mean a top rider like Johnny Rea or Tom Sykes I think would rather be challenging on a factory team in WSBK instead of on CRT. Before CRT only 18 riders all on prototype machines.... was doing CRT worth another 6 bikes on the grid that finish nowhere and get no air time. My opinion only motogp finished in 2006.

Be nice if the non-aprilia crts had at least the same engines as the satellites. suter makes a chassis for moto2 and it looks the same as the motogp one, is it?

Until CRT's get proper engines, it's a pointless joke. Why don't they allow the factories to lease prototype engines? Then CRT's really would be competitive. This whole experiment has me worried about the future of motogp....

The reality is the World Championship (and most motogp podiums)will only ever come down to a race between 3-4 factory riders - always has, always will.

So if you are 15seconds off the podium (satelitte teams) or 50 seconds off (CRT), does it really matter? As long as the racing is close and they don't get lapped and spoil the race for the podium, I for one am happy to see hard racing amongst bikes of equal specification.

And for anyone who has dealt with the introduction of new technologies we all know that the establishment phase is the most difficult. Given the supplier's track record I have no doubt the ECUs will get sorted fairly quickly.
