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...

While I agree that money is more of an issue than it once was Dorna and the FIM need to realise that in constantly changing the rules they are effectively pissing off the teams. Their stated aim of creating an infrastructure like that of F1 is not going to happen in the short term. F1 has always been more about small specialist firms than large manufacturers, IOW that infrastructure has always been there. You can't just create the same thing in MotoGP overnight. And even then they don't seem to have to courage of their convictions. They created CRT supposedly in order to foster this sort of infrastructure and then before CRT has even had a chance to prove itself they are talking about budget caps on lease costs for satellite teams. This has already got people putting plans for CRT participation on hold. Casey is right what we need is stability in the rules. The authorities are not giving one set of rules chance to work before they rush into another rule change. If they want to get grids full and more importantly keep them full, then they need to give the teams confidence that the rules they are playing to are not going to be changed pulling the rug out from under their efforts. What you don't want to be doing is spending months developing a new bike to find that new rules have made that bike obsolete before it's even reached it's full potential. What the sport needs is a guaranteed period where the rules will not change - say five years minimum.

he is right

Most of what he says I agree with. Like fuel limits, restrictions on the number of engines and the step down to 800s, those rules must have made it more expensive for the teams. They also favour the smaller riders like Pedrosa. The tyre rule I’m not so sure about, Bridgestone were a lot better than Michelin back in 2007, then again as long as the team can have their preferred manufacturer of tyre it’s their choice. Yep he is on to something there, too much red tape messing things up and restricting manufactures creativity.

The rules are set.. for the next ten minutes!

If you want lots of people competing make it cheap. Does making it cheap devalue the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP title? No, its the friken world champioship!

The only reason MOTOGP needs more and more riders is for the show. The show is spectacular when one of two things happends. Either we get great racing, or crashes that get replayed all the time. Or both in which case Dorna rubs there hands in glee!

So steps should be made to make it cheap and spectacular, or expesnive and spectacular!

If cheap means removing electronics then remove them. Hell make the bastards run carbs and push start there bikes. That will sort the men out from the boys!

Expensive will mean 10 guys going around in circles maybe dicing with each other.

true

just from introducing 800cc motogp become a neverending beta or even alpha stage rule, a very unstable highly experimental regulation software. And motogp seems to be a hardware that way. lets put bikes experimental with stable regulations.
