MotoGP boss wants imminent decision on 2014 rules

MotoGP boss Carmelo Ezpeleta says he will push through his controversial plans for a controlled ECU and rev limit unless the factories can propose viable alternative options to help achieve his objectives of cutting costs and making racing more entertaining. Ezpeleta said he is willing to compromise on implementing radical rule changes like a single ECU if Honda, Yamaha and Ducati...

The factories that are in GP at the minute, don't have any other proposals..this is clear.

I think most fans want to see works bikes on the grid from the Japs..but not under any condition. Their rules have been responsible for shrinking grids and processional racing since 2006.

Something has to be done to increase the excitement so GP can flourish and be sold as entertainment. We had great racing before 800..it's not rocket science.

If Honda want to fuck off, and yamaha follow..bollox to 'em. Others will take their place and the show will go forward in a healthier state.

Carmelo is talking sense.

prototype/CRT equalization

Couldn't this be done with tyres? Added benefit is cost savings- costs usually best saved by changing nothing. At least for those already there.

Prototype schmototype

The thing is ,the term prototype gives an impression of being better than a road bike , but if that prototype was somewhat less than a road bike ie  800cc  v Desmosedici 990? that leap of logic wouldnt exist, so what do we want from MotoGP? I think we'd all agree , wheelie popping , tyre sliding noisey  harsh racing bikes  being ridden by highly skilled riders ,. To get this there needs to be a breakaway series using high power engines in all similar chassis a la 500cc strokers .Moto2 ought to be 500cc twin 4 strokes , not 4 cylinder cbr600 engines , thats just pathetic and anoying although i admit excellent racing  maybe  .2 moto3 engines cobbled together or something similar ?.I cant help thinking its all doomed .

Evolution

No one was more sad than me when 2 strokes were phased out and replaced with moto 2 and moto 3 but hey wot the f*ck everytime race day comes around it's them that are putting on the real nailbiting racing which is what I certainly want to see.The big race has to some degree been lack lustre of late and you won't get all the factory teams to agree after all they all want the edge. Look at BSB would we have seen some of the less prominent teams up there with the top runners if it was'nt for a control ecu and it has produced quality racing. So back to the argument go for it carmelo cos in 20 years time we will all be having the same argument about banning internal combustion engines and switching to electric bikes.I remember mick doohan taking the piss out of 4 strokes when they were breaking into gp's calling them diesels. F**k my pipe has gone out now

Motgp is boring

Motogp has become boring, no wheelspin to speak of no backing the bike in it has become so much like two wheeled F1 it has even managed to out bore that at times. At present, if we are lucky, we get to see two or three laps of reasonably close racing then one or two riders f**** off at the front and that gets down to one after ten laps and we all fall asleep. However, it is not just the boring aspect that has to be tackled, it is this stupid idea of having 'satelite teams' running bikes that are obvioulsy slightly detuned from the works bikes and they imagine that us mugs will fall fo this being a form of racing..give me strength, that is taking the p***. Why would any rider who professes to be a professional ride a bike that is clearly never going to win a race unless it rains or all the works bikes fall off. Having a controlled ECU etc will still not help the 'satelite team' as if you start with a sack of bits you will still take the grid with a sack of bits albeit with a control ECU, and if your engine never made the same power and torque that the works engines did to start with the whole exercise is a farce.

The bit I can't get to grips with is these silly CRT bikes that seem to be uprated WSB bikes dumped into Motogp. The whole thing has the begnnings of a slow descent into anonymity.
