There’s so much contradiction around today. Most here agree MotoGP has lost it’s spectacle and needs changing to retain its Premier status. But every time changes are suggested there’s a barrage of opposition! Likewise, everyone knows WSB lap times are too close to MotoGP, but at the first mention of lower spec WSB bikes there’s a litany of criticism. Most observers, me included, don’t know the detailed differences between “Stock” and “Super” classes because currently there are too many variations on the same 600s/1000s theme. Similar, but slightly lower specced classes used to be created when the prime class became oversubscribed. Now that the prime classes need more teams on the grid there is no longer a need for sub-prime classes. So amalgamating “Stock” and “Super” classes at an intermediate level will have beneficial effect. In MotoGP, Factory Proddy racers will oust CRTs, bringing fuller grids, closer racing and bringing back spectacle. Dorna-knocking is much too prevalent.
