Michael Laverty shocked at prototype/CRT speed gap

Michael Laverty reckons of the biggest surprises he got during an impressive MotoGP debut in Malaysia last week was the speed difference between factory prototype machinery like Honda’s RC213V and the production-based CRT bikes. The Irish rider produced one of the most impressive performances of last week’s Sepang showdown when he set the 15th best time and finished third best CRT...

Hey Mr Limited Cranial Capacity

Time for a big bore kit I think.

Please list all these 'intelligent' motogp website I've supposedly been banned from?

There's none I've come across that weren't populated by anaemic yellow zombies. For the record I've only ever been on MCN and MM. The later of which I walked away from because of the sycophantic nonsense spewed out by the Rossi fawnicator in chief - David Emmett. He bleats otherwise but he's as impartial as an Aussie cricket umpire. At least on MCN you're allowed to point out Rossi's multitude of faults. Whereas MM is run more along the lines of a regimented Orwellian cult, with little or no dissension allowed. Ha, ha Emmett's loss!

" No mate, you got banned because everyone on there called you a knobend. You got warned several times and eventually got banned. Everyone on there breathed a sigh of relief and continued intelligent conversation. The troll with the large thesaurus was ousted, and here you settled, spewing your Rossi paranoia. Keep going mate, I couldn't possibly care less. Just hope people on here you try to intimidate know your back story. Knobend!

Warned by who?

A couple of yellow belly posters? If that was the case I would've cried off MCN years ago. Ha, ha. Like Nostro's ever given two hoots about Oompa Loompa's.

No I left of my own volition when Emmett selectively deleted my posts for no other reason than to give his retorts more credibility. Typical dictatorship behaviour, just snuff out or censor what you don't like.  No foul language, just reasoned argument from me which upset his delicate yellow sensibilities. Another peep for Nostro was ever heard on that site. Proper low life behaviour from the man who thinks Rossi would win titles if RCV mounted. Proper delusional too. Emmett's ultimately little more than another fat bald Englishman with a perverse vicarious affection for the long yellow puke.

Now where's the rest of that exhaustive list of sites from which Nostro has been 'banned'? Numpty.

As far as im aware there isn't currently anything in the rules stopping 'the big guys' selling a CRT team engines its just that they won't. Afterall they need to protect their technology and their chuffing pricey. The real difference between CRT and satellite is ownership. Massivley over simplified but In theory CRT teams own their machinery and are free to develop them as they wish but receive little or no factory assistance also they must be willing to sell they're engines at a set price to any other CRT who claims one. Sattelite teams lease a bike they are allowed to do very little too but get factory support, technicians and assistance............ Next year the rules will change to allow manufacturers (Yamaha) to lease engines to privateers although it is unclear at this stage if the privateer team would still then be eligible for the extra fuel and engine allowance. Ultimately I think that will depend on the engine spec and level of support yamaha choose to provide. Ducati, so far, have been silent on if they have any plans for a privateer engine or proddie racer. I suspect they have they're hands full developing their own bike for now.

Nostro - You set yourself up for the fall every time - your level of conceit is unsurpassed on MCN even though your voice is small like a kitten crying in a hurricane. Your make yourself target on here. Perhaps that's what turns you on. Best of all   we   don't   care!

Feck me - another tosspot!

The first comment in this thread was an ignorant and inflammatory heap of shite from a typical anti-Stoner wanker.  It was slapped down and so brought Wosi-troll out from under his rock for the usual crock of greasy propaganda.

The only other person I know who calls himself Nostradamus is Steve Parrish and he is a complete bell end as well. As a former bike racer and massive fan of all bike sport these guys are unreal. I remember my first national race at cadwell and being blitzed by John Crawford so god only knows how fast these guys are. But when someone like the bell of nastro slates a nine times world champion I am stunned. Dovis face in mcn today made me laugh out loud.The same dovi nastro said would embarrass Rossi. Check out the photo of Rossi at full lean with the front wheel actually going where he wants it.He will be world champ this year.
