“Capirossi recently tried them in Brno, said they are fantastic and went faster than he had when he was in MotoGP. We are starting to see some CRTs in front or very near a prototype. The CRT is a great solution that will be made better with what we are doing for the future.”
Ezpeleta's overall vision is for MotoGP to be more like the new Moto3 category, where open chassis and engine competition exists within a tightly controlled set of technical regulations.
“I want a Moto3-style MotoGP,” he said. “Four cylinders and 81mm piston diameter [as at present] plus a rev limit and the same ECU for everyone.”
That, Ezpeleta feels, would make the often processional premier-class racing “the same, if not better than in Moto3, because MotoGP bikes are bigger and better.”
