re: "With the cost of a superbike around a million pounds a pop (according to Steve Parrish), it's not that surprising that Audi and Ducati have chosen to concentrate their resources on MotoGP next season. In fact with Superbikes now costing about half as much of a full MotoGP prototype, they now bear very little in common with their road-going counterparts" not according to chaz. no davies not palminteri... "I heard that Carmelo Ezpeleta in his interview in Japan a couple of weeks ago said their goal with the two championships is to reduce the cost and improve the show," Davies said. But for me, MotoGP and Superbike are on two completely different ends of the scale with both of the points he mentioned. Cost-wise, you're talking a pittance in Superbike compared to MotoGP. The cost to be competitive, anyway. We've won a race as a privateer team with probably, as a percentage of a factory MotoGP team, you can probably say we wouldn't have been probably around 5 percent."
