Leon Camier can get his awaiting chance to try the Aprilia aaRT machine in for Petrucci. But the wsbk and motogp schedule is in every weekend. So it will be a tight call to race every week plus the traveling inside Europe.

I think he should be given the chance as promised by Ioda racing Team.

Petrucci is another example of a rider which a team got cheap as no one really knew who he was but during the first year of CRT he did a good job even if he wasn't on competitive machinery.

JasonLewis: I have no idea if this guy is good or not....his machine gives him no chance

mate 95% of the grid has no chance

and that should be the highest level in the world of motorcycle racing ...
when you have at least 15 talented riders some of them even won a world title in lower levels , but there is only 4 competitive bike out there and 4 lucky riders ...... i can see the point of racing if you know you'll never win a motogp race in your career and a podium finish is rare thing ....
so why won't them let only the factory bike race and compete between themselves ...

To answer the questions above.... thd way I see it is like this equatiin below:

(1 x V Powerful Mfr) + (1 x Hopeless, Inept & probably corrupt Organiser) + (1 x Easily Satisfied and easily fooled mass audience who support a successful racer instead of Racing in general).....

= Zero Racing Competition + 18 x WC Racers running out their careers with 0 hope.

There are ways to write a new equation with a much higher probability of a much better outcome.... but it'd take a drastic alteration of items 2 and 3 in the original equation for that to be possible.
