"@Nate -
This is great news. But I am getting sick of dorna and the Spanish influence in the sport"

Without the Spanish influence Motogp would not exist today.

And as an example. Without American influence Baseball, Football, glorified cruisers / choppers, military style weapons available to anyone and people who are extremely famous but have absolutely no talent wouldn't exist either.

Go figure.

Come On Suzuki Welcome back again.. can t wait to wach the bike with my eyes!! Its allways exciting to wach one manufctor making bif efforts to return to competitive bikes!! They have been building this project from some good time now and i have big hopes that Suzuki will be one true contender this time..If they are able to arrive with a great bike for racing they will prove many importante points to the market, they will prove that Suzuki is still one of the Top teams on the fastest bikes on the planet and that gives good signs that after this finansal crise many good upgrades can arrive to bikes like GSX R and other sport models that have been almost stop on develpments on this recente years only some small changes and refinements...

My semi-educated guess is that RdP will be the European rider, which strongly hints at the possibility of Team Aspar being the Suzuki team in 2014. There is a history of negotiations between them (Aspar wanted to use Suzukis when he first moved into MotoGP). I'm sure Aleix Espargaro would be delighted at the prospect of riding a prototype again!

I'm talking about the running of the sport as the story was strongly talking about Dorna. Go figure.

And the fact that riders from other nations can hardly get a chance in the sport because there is so many Spanish run teams who only hire Spanish riders due to sponsors etc it probably would be a different story if other riders from other nations got a chance to come in and for teams to be born out of it with sponsors hopefully coming with them. Hense why the red bull rookies cup has been conceived.

It really is a joke. First they bring in the CRTs to bring up the number of bikes on the grid, then suddenly they have the opposite problem? I don't see how two more bikes would be a bad thing... Grid's still pretty small if you look at the big picture.
