Casey Stoner urges rules stability in MotoGP

Reigning world champion Casey Stoner has urged MotoGP bosses to stop meddling with rules and regulations to have a period of stability to help the premier class prosper in the future.The Australian believes a lack of stability with technical rules in recent years has been the downfall of the series and contributed to small grid numbers and the huge expense...

stonsey laying it down just how he see's it , seeing he has lived and breathed racing in many a tournament since 3 years old i will give his words a strong merit. also its very refreshing to have world champion who is unafraid to speak out (and does often) at the organizers often self confusing juggling acts. i always enjoy stoner interviews , you can always expect a juicy truth to come shooting out that rarely gets spoken by others.

bollocks, money rules it all

no mention then,of half million pound gear boxes then,just to gain a tenth of a second a lap, fk if they banned stuff like that ,and other high tech stuff,smaller teams might get a sniff  at it,and guys dont start and tell me that half a million quid gearboxes are gonna come down in price,and end up in your street bike ffs,yeah just like all those v5 hondas,and foggy wsbks in the second hand bike ads

What Casey seems to have forgotten is that the factories (with Honda at the forefront) made up the technical rules until this year, so have nobody to blame but themselves if it got out of hand and too expensive.

Now we need stability in the rules but also we need to rid the class of the people that caused the problem....the factory teams!   An all CRT grid using production derived (as opposed to superbike spec) engines would bring the crowds back, have bigger grids and cut costs hugely.  private teams could afford to go GP racing again for the first time since the demise of the RG500, and we would almost certainly see much more chassis innovation from the likes of FTR.Moriwaki etc than we currently have in MotoGP.

Ban carbon brakes, pneumatic valves and limit electronic assistance and you have almost an F1 bike championship where small teams can either build or buy a chassis to use with any number of different engines.

If a few riders decide to quit so what. It would soon be forgotten and the new series would carry on regardless :)

straight answer and good point of view

Another brilliant interview and a point of view. He is concerned for everyone in the championship especially with private teams that lacking of funds. Well done champ and keep it up.

Good points Casey. Get rid of the aids and million dollar gearboxes as well.

Excellent statement.

He knows what he's talking about so take note because - he's right! This is not about Casey, this is about his sport, none of this would really benefit him but it would benefit others in the future. Good call.

Translation #2...

Don't mess with the rules since I am on the best bike and team and I don't want the CRT or satelite machines to be too competitive. If everyone was on a Honda I would loose my advantage..... I wonder what would happen if Cal was on a Honda factory bike this year? Or would Melandri still be in MotoGP if he had been on the same bike as Casey. Or would Vale still be 30 seconds behind?
