No more CRT in MotoGP by 2014?

A grid of full-blown prototypes could contest the 2014 MotoGP world championship, ending the headache of how to slash the gulf in performance between factory bikes and production-derived CRT machinery. With only 12 factory bikes on the grid for 2012, the new CRT category allowed teams to tune production motors like Honda’s CBR1000RR and BMW’s S1000RR and run them in prototype...

Why not ban the expensive prototypes and make everybody run CRT type bikes,that would level the playing field, promote close racing and swell the grid numbers.!!

new thinking needed

Now that turbos have been perfected how about crts running a turbo,with an air restrictor so that the turbos match the engine power of prototypes,It would be cheap and allow crts to compete .there wouldnt be any more 2 horse races

The more these clowns keep changing regs then the more factories and teams will be wary of investing into the series. The CRTs are not an ideal but it would be unfair to now push them out just for Honda and Yamaha. Reality is we cannot afford high end four strokes !

Evolution or Revolution

So as fast as they came in they are now,probably,gonna be out......they did boost the grid numbers but realistically are not competitive,no shit sherlock did we really think they were going to be able to compete with factories. So we are not really just wanting numbers but rather more bikes that can actually win,competition shall we say. Well as said already BSB has proved that you can mix it with with the big boy's,with just a few rules to level the playing field.And the racing in BSB is now amongst the best. Carmel/Dorna has to grow some bollocks cos you'll never get the factories to come up with a plan that will suit everybody cos at the end of the day winning produces yen. Rather than making big sweeping changes as the CRT idea was why not start with single changes, say a control ECU with no electronics and build from there. Love it or loathe F1, the changes are gradually making it better bit by bit. Evolution shall we say.
