Let's face it - under the current MotoGP rules, HRC & Yam Factory's have it all sewn up. They've won, and cannot be beaten.

That accepted, then we can declare them the winners, and then reset and start a new game, with new rules from scratch. Rules that reset the playing field to level and zero for any and all teams taking part.

I think this was what Ezpeleta was demonstrating when the CRT class was born, and while far from perfect (as the ART bikes stretched the rules somewhat, but Ezpeleta badly needed the entries so they got away with it) CRT successed in demonstrating that a new direction with less tech and costs could work very well indeed.

CRT means the factories would not want to play this new game IMO. But I think that actually MotoGP racing would be all the richer for that.
