I think 250's would be great - the return of a classic racing format, much loved iin other parts of the world...just not so much here in Blighty as there seems to be big bike snobbery, and has been for years. Regarding WSBK, it has to cutcosts & slowdown. One of the reasons motoGp went to 800's was because the speeds were getting too high for the circuits...it was getting too dangerous & as speeds increase you'd find that less & less circuits are suitable...we'd end up with procession racing in huge souless racetracks designed on computers, with runoff areas the size of Norfolk. This ain't oval racing, I couldn't give a flying F*** about top speeds. Sustainable racing with full grids, wildcards, private teams, lots of manufacturers is what we need. Following its current tech trajectory, with bespoke ECU's etc WSBK will become as boring as MotoGp if nothing is done.
