response to first acticle
why do MCN keep on changing the text but anyways..... by the time you think of an answer they change the question.
Dorna, i understand that the MCN
article, i've just been reading (WAS) is a snap shot of what has been said, but.
note: i understand that money is an issue and i do watch every WSB and MOTOGP race on the TV.
MOTOGP bikes should be the prototype bikes that we might be riding one day, if our dreams come true,
they should be wild and hard to control, the best riders in the world trying to taming the beasts,
tyres developed being pushed as the bikes gets faster, with engineers trying to make them driveable.
But what do we get, controlled tyres (not a bad idea) but it's the electronics that are now the
real problem, at one point there were like 10 bikes in the motogp starting grid within 0.25
of a second off of each other, this might looks good on paper, but it leads to processional racing,
as the limiting factor is the tyre and electronics and not the rider, no wonder Casey left. It's
very evident that the electronics are the leading factor, when you see the crashes and or near misses
at the exactly the same points on the track, we are talking about bikes low or high sider
within centimeters of each other, some team are losing both riders at exactly the same point,
the riders are obviously at the mercy of the electronic. But the thing is the tyres is the limiting point.
How do you keep the riders safe and also keep people interested, well get the riders back in control
of the bikes, i'm sure they will work out the tyre limitiations very quickly, well given enough testing time
to find the limit.
There is now easy access to MOTOGP (personnal note: the MOTOGP website sucks,
i'm not giving you any money, why they don't say something like
"you can watch the videos, but if you don't pay the adverts will be longer", that's a win win) via satalite
and the web, so the sponsors should be get a better return then they ever did.
So i think the teams should run their own ECU's, but there should be a limit to the number of sensors.
WSB bikes, should be running bikes I can buy in the shops, right here right now, well almost, if i want
to emulate edwards / haga / sykes then all i need to do is pop down to my local bike dealer
and buy the bike i see on the TV, this should be the case for all the classes. But i can also see that
500cc bikes would be cheaper to buy for the general public in countries that people don't has much
expendable income, but have much larger potential market places, like markets that are million times bigger
than the UK. Why not have WSB 125cc scooter racing, if you want to sell a lots of bikes.
