MotoGP » Michael Czysz: How to save MotoGP

At last a decent set of comments on Crash! It's interesting to read well thought out arguments. No-one is going to get everything right but IMO the concept is very thought provoking. I agree with SickCyl in that we WILL see MGP and WSBK merging - maybe not in the next two years but I'm convinced it will happen eventually. Someone said in one of the previous posts that WSBK is going great at the moment...only superficially! Look below the surface and you will see the same financial based problems as in MGP....this model of MGP and WSBK is not, in the long term, sustainable. Again as has been previously said, without 'general' interest and support, the cash inflow will not happen and we all know where that leads to. Incidentally, best wishes to JL.

WSBK » Yamaha announces WSBK withdrawal

@apriliarsv - absolutely agree! To those who say that WSBK is not in trouble, please open your eyes and take a look what is happening. As an example, take WSS......the series was floundering with fewer and fewer entrants. The rules were changed and almost immediately the grids enlarged and the series improved. IMO WSBK has to change to survive with fewer trick parts, no carbon, etc, etc. However, that does not mean the racing spectacle will suffer. The absolute speed may well be reduced but the relative speeds will be just as close and, within limits, it's that that results in good close racing.

WSBK » Yamaha announces WSBK withdrawal

This comes as no surprise and I agree with previous comments that the Yamahas will be on the grid next season with a privateer outfit(s) like the the other teams. What really needs to be addressed is the state of WSBK (and MotoGP of course). I understand that at last movements are afoot regarding the fundamentals of WSBK (one bike and maybe a move towards the EVO type rules) but what I can't understand is why it has taken so long! A blind man can see that the class is in trouble, irrespective of what has been said by some senior pundits. We need a lower cost basis, ideally coupled with a move back to the origins of a truly production based series. Many of the machines are allegedly illegal (if the rules are to be applied to the letter) but no-one dare say anything due to the threat of withdrawal. What a state to get in.
