It's ridiculous that WSBK teams can use an unlimited number of engines yet they bring in rules to limit costs, such as the one bike rule, (meaning one bike and several chassis with engines ready to be bolted in for the richer teams). The problem is that CRTs are meant to be a cheaper form of racing. Although they'd be more competitive with unlimited WSBK spec engines, it would push up the cost substantially, which is why I suppose Schwantz suggested the tyre rule instead. The wild card entries don't have the same engine limitation rule so they OUGHT to be a lot quicker but I suppose they're not high enough quality and/or lack the necessary experience and expertise to demonstrate what a good CRT bike with a WSBK tuned engine and electronics could do in the hands of a rider like Edwards or De Puniet.
