Aspar confirms Ducati split

Spain's high profile Aspar squad will split with Ducati at the end of the 2011 MotoGP world championship and is now working on its own private 1000cc project. Having initially agreed to expand to a two-rider effort with the Bologna factory in 2012, the Aspar squad confirmed to MCN in Phillip Island today that plans to continue running just one Ducati...

No doubt Pramac and Aspar are talking shit also, I wonder if stoners fans see the irony.. Wish we could get a sound bite from presiozi about how it's all about learning for the future?? Racing is not a long term investment.. Ducati can still be competitive but it's nothing short of a crime that they've spent the entirety of this years extra testing on a 3 year old failed design.. Just who is pulling the strings there.. No marlboro next year if they turn up with another frameless bike and it still doesn't work.. end of.. Yam3358 - whilst I appreciate Caseys fans obssession with a couple over wins as proof of the bikes abilities. Ask yourself this, what do 99% of the premiership value highest a win over united or the Premiership title..?? That's the difference between what ducati had and what Rossi and JB are after..simply no comparison..

Might not be the death of moto gp, but it could well be the death of wsb, the motorbike industry is just too small to support 2 premier world championships. At least with motogp the manufacturers get r&d out of it. How much do they really learn tuning production bikes. I reckon it would probably be more beneficial for fans to see more investment at national level- bsb, ama etc. And more investment in premier prototype racing. CRT will probably be a short lived thing that gets more manufacturers involved in motogp and stop investing in wsb and slowly evolves into a more f1 style grid with a pool of prototype engine suppliers, respected chassis makers and a couple of big factory teams.

What does CRT stand for,  and what does it mean in practice?
