MotoGP » Rain scuppers Ducati MotoGP test


The engine freeze rule is the antithesis of prototype racing anyway, and MotoGP is supposed to be a prototype class. Albeit over recent times Dorna has moved from calling the main contenders "prototypes" to "factory class", as they have added more and more constraints on development and refinement under the guise of "reducing cost of entry". I like the idea of monoclass (or close to it) racing for the feeder categories, but prefer MotoGP to represent the pinnacle of the sport. At the moment, it is part race class, part pseudo-superbike class, part economy run, and part fit-the-bike-to-the-tyre class, and part keep-up-with-the-new-rules-class...

MotoGP » Crutchlow's Ducati 'in a different place'


BJR:
TrueFan: ... The corner specific stuff only exists in your imagination. Sorry.... The factory bikes have GEAR specific data settings, not corner specific. ..... There is no way of the ECU knowing its track position. ..... They don't currently have any way of having corner specific settings. Full stop. Period. I'm sure I've pointed this out before.
Hey TrueFan, remember writing these words in the Honda ECU thread? Don't get so worked up over something that doesn't exist.
@Realist, @eadgbe and @BJR You kiddies need to catch up. You're as lost as Crutchlow's Ducati....From earlier in this thread... TrueFan March 24, 2014 7:40 AM

... If they had worked on the bike instead of being stubborn and blaming riders for the better part of a decade, they'd have a more suitable and competitive bike. Those are the facts. That is the bottom line. Stubborn, foolish pride got them here.
Those aren't actually the facts, those are your opinion of what might be the facts. An alternate version of "The facts" could be that the racing department had a restricted budget to make the changes that riders asked for, because the executive had a different agenda, and racing was not a priority. Regardless, in the middle of the last decade, manufacturers were able to make and test changes. The recent rule changes have progressively closed off this option. That part is fact.

Well, if you spend the good weather on promotional shots, and miss your test because of weather, maybe someone should check the weather report first? It must be encouraging for Cal that "the electronic problem has been fixed." I hope the software has been fixed to detect the problem they had in Qatar, and fall back into a workable state, instead of getting "lost." There really is no excuse for a repeat performance.
