Colin Edwards: “We’ve got 18 tests ahead”

American Colin Edwards reckons each race during the 2012 MotoGP campaign will be like an extension of winter testing as he tries to make the Suter-BMW CRT project a competitive package in the new 1000cc category. The experienced Texan is preparing for his 10th season in the premier class fully aware that he faces a massive task just to get close...

Great attitude Colin

Racing is the new testing obviously, what does that make testing? If it's all one long test I can't wait to see what they come up with next year.

Reminiscent of Valentino's 2011 comments

 once he realised he didn't have the skill set to tame the Duke in the manner of Stoner.

It will be very interesting to watch the progression of these CRT's / ART's. Certainly the ART's have come on in leaps and bounds in a very short space of time. What will happen when they really get serious about the motor? They've got 12 of them to play with of course. I will temper that in saying that of course those last few tenths of seconds are the most difficult to find.

I'm hoping to hear of some proper engineering along the lines of the ill fated Peter Clifford WCM heavily revised R1 engine. Surely some teams must have some ideas. Playing with WSB spec engines is a bit dull.

There's going to be some ART/CRT tomcats prowling. The question is - who are the pigeons going to be?

I happen to think Colin is correct 18 rounds is a testing session for himself hopefully he does not take a break like Kenny JR did in 2007 when he couldn't get his bike working in the way he wanted.

Much to lose, fk'all to gain.

I'm still confused as to why The Tornado chose to race a CRT. Yeah, 'it's in his blood' etc etc is an obvious response but he's nothing left to prove or gain imo. I hope he finishes the season 'intact' then goes home to his family.
