It is of course depending on your perspective. Considering (last I looked) all CRT outfits are returning next year, with the potential growth of teams in 2014, I would call it a success. The teams are in thier infancy. Dorna has realzed that the teams need a better tire option, which will help. Are they going to win races? Hell no, anyone expecting otherwise needs a straight jacket. Given time the bikes can do better however, concessions need to made to help them get there. It doesn't help that the CRT riders are the worst of the best (or worse). People complain there's not enough bikes on the grid. Uncle Carmelo puts more bikes on the grid and people complain. Get real already. Hope MM and the additional tire compound available only to the CRT's will help bridge the gap a little. Since Stoner is now retired I think it would be cool to have him lap the Gresini CRT bike during a race weekend and see where he puts it.
