Suzuki urged to complete several wild cards in 2014

Suzuki has been urged to make as many wild card appearances as possible next year to ensure its new 1000cc contender returns race ready and competitive in 2015. The Japanese factory shocked the MotoGP world in June by delaying a scheduled return to the world championship until 2015. The decision to abandon plans to return as initially intended in 2014 was taken...

 The most likely wild card appearance Suzuki will make IMO is at the Japanese GP or even the British GP. The main question is who will be riding the bike.

I don't think they have intention of coming back in the near future. Time will tell though.

Yo HO HO & a bottle of RUM

Let's face it. Aprilia and BMW are not prepared to put a toe in the tepid water of GP prototype. Suzuki who?

de Puniet is right. If they want to compete in GP, they, like Kawasaki need to get in the game and play catch up. But I guess they feel they are so superior to Ducati that the whole bunch of 'em and BMW/Aprilia included do not warrant their Yen's,Euro's right now. What a bunch of curs. Who will ride it?  Who cares?

Folklore and sundy BS. Meantime, miniscule Ducati Corse sucks it up and competes.

Lest I forget. Exactly what are Triumph,MV and Harley doing re GP. Nothing exactly. The HOG company can be excused for the ssingular reason that they never entertained it in the first place.

No excuses for Messrs Suzuki,Triumph,Kawasaki,BMW,Aprilia. Their business was based on GP competitiveness within the frame of their histories. Get in the ring !!!!

For Christ's sake Suzuki

 Either jump off into the deep end or stay the fuck away and stop wasting everyone's time. I've never seen such a half ass committed outfit as these boys. They are gonna piss about for another year or so and even if they return (big if) they are probably going to be slow and fighting with production racers and CRTs.

concessions are the only way

For dorna to attract new manafacturers under MSMA rules. Fuel restrictions seem to be the key stumbling block. They are trying to re-standardise the structure for MSMA and non-MSMA participants largely by dumping the claiming rule in favour of the spec ecu. However as they are already committed to allowing new MSMA entries an extra allocation of engines in their first year of competition I would suggest that offering them an extra 2 litres of fuel on top may be enough to attract some manufacturers entries towards full MSMA status. Along with the engine allocation this would allow a new entry to work on refining their software and collecting data at each track while being reasonably confident of finishing each race. Aprillia recently asked for this concession and were turned down.

 Jus't stick Hayden on that bike, still a propper MotoGp rider. Nicky wouldn't mind working hard for a season jus't testing and ridding a few wild card races. IMO Hayden/Suzuki is a good match, and it could work out well. 1986vfr750 makes a fair point by the way. Suzuki was running verry good lap times, their worry was getting a race distance run on 21 liters of petrol. Suzuki was jus't about getting this done, and boom Dorna smacks in the 20 litre Fuel limit! This whole Fuel saving aspect is over the top.
