Do you know how many bikes were on the grid just before Dorna took over GP? I doubt it. The Austrian GP in 1991 there was 14, 10 of them were factory supplied bikes along with the Millar Yam lease private bike for Laycock.
After a few years of large grid numbers in 1999 Dorna set the limit to 24 (Just the number this year) and signed 5 year contracts with 5 satellite teams to give them security where they could sell/lease their grid slot if they weren't used, this gave them a fair share of the purse. To get a slot using a CRT at the moment is as much about getting a grid place for the future as the last year in 250,125.
The most that the grid has dropped by in the last few years is 7, look at the WSB figures again, they allow 36 bikes but last year managed 2 more than Motogp although for most of the season 22, thats 14 down, this year at the moment 20 down.
WSB needs a similar stable structure for the teams and it needs common SBK rules globaly rather than different for every country.

Brno out of money?
Isn't the track run by Karel Abraham Senior?
I guess junior wrecked too many parts and caused the financial struggle, the Abraham family ( senior and junior ) have something in common giving us a shocker senior with his company and junior with his crashes.
It would be lame if Brno would be off, Jerez is struggling too and has WSBK and MotoGP.

mick, time to let it go pal. me thinks "though protesteth too much". you're flailing and thrashing about like so much liquid terminator in molten steel. same as with the CRT question, history finds you YET AGAIN on the wrong side of an argument. WSBK rules, just deal with it FFS.

Haha Shamoron, its more fun to hang on and wait for your next dreamland fact.
Just post the figures to back up your "YET AGAIN" bias statements and prove WSB rules, (FFS), while your at it prove what I say is thrashing about!

I must say, it is about time we were rid of the Brno rounds in both WSBK and GP. Why, some of my congregation and I travelled there to watch some fine motorcyclists up to their derringdo, but were met instead by scenes of much debauchery within the confines of the camping site.
Alcoholic beverages at such low prices as to afford commoners easy drunkeness and the behavior of some of the young ladies upon the stage was, Bucking Frilliant
