Dorna boss happy with CRT class

With one season under their belt, the CRTs will be expected to close the performance gap in 2013, when Bridgestone will also offer a softer rear tyre for the CRTs and some teams will run the new Magneti Marelli ECU, compulsory from 2014.

“This season they will have some improvement in the tyres, but also we will develop together with Marelli and some of them the new ECU that will be compulsory in 2014 for the non-factory teams. This gives us a big expectation.”

This year's 24-rider premier-class grid will see an equal split between manufacturer and CRT entries, the privateer ranks swelling by three more machines relative to 2012.

Honda and Yamaha are expected to offer CRT specification machinery - a complete bike and engine supply respectively - from the 2014 season, when the fuel difference between manufacturer and CRT entries will increase to four litres.
