MotoGP grid set to swell to 28 bikes in 2014

The MotoGP grid could swell to its largest size in years with the potential for a 28-strong entry in 2014.With Honda, Yamaha and Ducati all contracted to supply four factory prototypes each, there is the possibility that 16 additional entries will be permitted to compete, including Suzuki with a new two-rider factory effort.Suzuki were to be subject to stringent entry...

Interesting Prospect....

But I'm sure Dorna or Carmelo will find a way of screwing it up. Biggest grid for years with loads of exciting young riders and how do Dorna decide to increase the profile of the sport? They Sell the rights to BT effectivley making it pay per view. Way to encourage the Casual/new spectator.

Grids to swell..........

.........................so what?

I fully appreciate the efforts of all that line up but do I really tune in to watch someone who rarely wins in their national series? No.

MotoGp is a minority sport. Had it not been for Vale for the past decade then it could've been worse. Vale, if nothing else, puts bums on seats. Sticking more bikes on a grid when, let's be honest, few have much interest in those beyond 10th place, won't change a thing. And why compound the problem (as 'diceman' states) further!!!!!!!

MotoGP

I sort of agree with all the posts so far , but , it seems that not many people do and  like not many of us give a toss about  Superbike , domestic UK or World . The Crutchlow would have been happy with 4th thread has 240 odd comments , the best race ive seen in a long long time ( supersport at Portimao) has about 7 comments .

Get. A. Grip.

Premier League Football isn't free.  World Superbikes is not free.  UFC is not free.  The companies are in it to make money are they not?  The BBC is half fledgling company run by 'out of touch with the kids' (no puns intended in anyway) directors who are clueless at half base. They cover half the races on BBC2 with a small amount of credibility by giving Crutchlow (the British rider) a decent amount of airtime (for the British audience).  The rest of the races are aired on BBC3 which I also don't have. 

For one, I am thankful that I don't have to listen to that pair of complete and utter turnips Cox and Parrish.  So I subscribed for a year pass to the Dorna site - yep to line his pockets.  Or more to the point so that as a consumer (as we all are) to give me the choice to watch races wherever I am in the world on my laptop.  Even if I miss it (depending on the timezone)..  For people who subscribe to Sky paying 50-90 quid a month, I can have all of the coverage for 82 quid for the season or more specifically 18 races with 3 days of action @ 1.51 (GBP) per day.  given the cost of Sky and Premier Sports... (which I don't watch) then heck yeah.  I'll subscribe.

You go to work to get paid don't you?  There's not much in this life for free ladies.  That includes MotoGP. IF you're a fan then you'll just subscribe (the coverage of the Video pass pisses on all the other channels)! It's a frickin company making dough.  And a no brainer decision.  What you want it for free?  Then go round your mates house...

Fantastic! We'll still have six fast bikes at the front, but now there'll be twenty two also-rans instead of the current fourteen.

Live feed? Share the high quality link brother. Except it isn't. Ahhh CBR... do you offer your talents for free? Of course you don't. So why should Dorna? Or the premier league. Or anyone else. Lets give it to you for free. Like the tv license you pay. Enjoy corrie and X factor mate that's where your 120 quid is going each year.. haha.

Too far.

They might as well have 4 GP bikes against 24 Moto2 bikes.
