Even though I completely agree with the CRT concept, introducing a third tier of performance just makes no sense to me. The championship now needs to swing one way or the other, production based (superbike) engines bombed to the eyeballs but with mechanical valves or homologated prototype engines with pneumatic valves allowed. All engines used in the championship should be homologated and sealed and all engines from any engine supplier should be identical whether it be used in a factory or a customer team, all engines should use a control ecu with the programming free. The playing field needs to be levelled to where the best rider with the best engineering wins and yet the worst financed team still has access to the good equipment. It'll only increase participation, close the gap and drop the cost though, it won't change the current results, the 3-4 top guys now will still be winning the races because they are still the best riders.
