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...

It will be very intresting to see DP and MM and SB ride the new RC in the first test of the machine for two hours and see their lap times.

Can Honda do this to see everybody what they can buy?

Guys the solution is one: live streaming.You don't pay anything.

In my village to see the motogp race yoy must pay 43 euro per month and to mute the voice because the speakers all the time tell for Ducati news and for VR. You can see the most exciting fight for the first place and the speakers say about new girlfriend of Rossi for 20 minutes.

The two speakers own shop of VR46 product.

If

they are going to increase the grid then increase full factory machines to a minimum of 14 bikes and get people that are going to challenge for race wins. Also bring in other tyre makers but keep the rules on tyres stringent and no over night specials. Shawno you have convinced me that is the only way to go, unless you pay per view on the day for a couple of quid.

Too right CBR11X

there's no point in expanding the grid to make way for more no hopers as the race will only be about four bikes anyway. If Dorna want to make exciting racing then factories should supply engines only, CRT should be allowed superchargers and turbos, there should not be a control tyre and no fuel limit.

If you with BT the races are ONLY free to watch for the 1st year. So don't buy it guys. They ripping you off. On topic, WOW dumbed down RCV's, bet there gonna be great. That me being sarcastic. The only way to get more bikes competitive is to try and get more factories involved and to stop tweeking the rules year after year.

No hopers?

Every sport has "no hopers", not just motogp. That's one of the great qualities of sport, the little guy taking on the giants. You should all get off your high horses and bin that sanctimonious, sense of entightlement.

More bikes is a good things, and as Shawno has said, nothing is free. Pay up or fuck off, leeches.

Just Put Em All

 on dumb down RCV, s or M1. As it stands only  4 guys have a bike capable of willing the title. So it,s half decided before the season starts. More affordable competitive bikes are what,s needed , or it,s all just the same as we have. There are plenty of brilliant riders all around the world , but only four bike,s . It,s a disgrace to call it a world championship. The SUPER BIKES have shown that they can have great racing ,  for far less money  and far more countrys involved. You used to be able to buy a production RS and TZ250s,customer RG500s and TZ,S and in my mind that's what all the GP bikes should be, along those lines , ,  Grid,s were full , great racing and good riders from every corner of the world, THAT,s a WORLD championship.

Waste

We could save all this having to race nonsense  by seinding in a firm of accountants (the same for all companies) and see which company is most liquid and on an upward trend , then award them the world championship for all sports.
