Especially sad as it's being driven by Rossi coming to Ducati in MotoGP - something that is going to be a failure both from a competition and marketing standpoint.

There passing has nothing to do with the coming of Rossi to there Moto Gp set up. The corporates will fighting to get there money and stickers on him and that Ducati for next season. This mess all falls back to the **** up of Tozz not giving team orders and Harga losing the championship. Every racer want to win Fab, but you also should of thought of the inplications of the factory losing the championship.
A Sad day, will miss the sound and sight of the booming red Duc's hope they soon return.

Whooped by the satilite teams and your "factory riders"
riding like girls and they wont change the rules, AGAIN for you to win.
So throw your toys out of the cot and leave in a hissy fit.
You big girls build a a WSBK version of your Moto GP V4 like the champion winners did.
Good ridance!!!

Correct me if I am wrong Doug, but didnt Ben Spies win on an R1 using an engine format developed by the M1 in MotoGP?

Didnt Honda use a V4 in the 90's? Wasnt the RC30 and RC45 V4's? Its not new, and its not solely MotoGP tech, its just more techincal and more expensive than an inline4......

At least if Ducati come back with a 1000cc V4, they can nolonger be claimed to be 'cheating' by clowns who no nothing of bike racing.........

Oh dear, what a shame. Ducati have gone after not being able to have the rules bent in their favour anymore. They pulled out of BSB for the same reason, spitting their dummy out because Stuart Hicks wouldn't let them run their engine at a different spec to the rules. Bye Ducati, I won't miss you.
