The leasing of the factory-spec engines by Yam, Honda, Ducati and the like has got to be a win-win situation for everyone in MotoGP. It would mean that overnight the CRT's would again become wholly prototypes therefore differentiating themselves totally from WSB, they'd also be quicker in a straight line so could get closer to competing with factory bikes. It would also allow the likes of Suzuki/Kawasaki et al to dip a toe back into MotoGP by developing 'just' an engine and leasing it but without the even greater expense of developing a whole bike and running a team. This would surely entice other manufacturers into the sport. Lets hope it goes ahead because CRT as it stands just doesn't work and there are some seriously good riders in that class who can't hope to get closer to the front without a more competitive bike.......good news for Colin too.
