Just who are these tricksters trying to fool ? Dorna ? Bike Manufacturers ? Potential Sponsors ? Their Bank managers ?
It would be ridiculous, nay scandalous to allow these cowboys back into WSB while making it so difficult for Kawa and Suzuki to get back on the MotoGP grid.
( no offence to real cowboys, or cows, or boys.)

Liberty's shenanigans in 2012 should be enough for WSB organizers to ban this Czech-based weirdly-funded Italian team, forever. And such a ban would be a strong signal to other teams as well.

Now I think they won't be back at all. With the debut of the Panigale, the 1098R is not even permitted to race I believe. I don't know why are they trying to fool people.

Good point Ben1......

I wonder if someone could confirm - if the 1098R is no longer in production and has been superseded by the Panigale can it still be entered in the series?

If not it really does show them up for what they are...just a bunch of wide-boys.

I think the manufacturer has to present a bike / apply to the FIM for homolgation and this then lasts for 5 years. I read somewhere that the 1098R's homolgation ran out at the end of 2012.
