Of course I'm not happy there appear to be only 4 seats capable of winning the title, but just why is that Bulto?
You have a pop at CRT but seem to forget there would have been just 12 bikes on the grid if Carmelo hadn't forced the MSMA's hand.
I've been here a hundred times before on this site..The current manufacturers don't want competition. They are happy to use the series as a big fat marketing tool for brand awareness. NFI in the sport.
20 litres/5 engines is a fkin joke..but that's the way they want it because it prevents other factories entering because they haven't the money to sink into developing race programs to compete.
Why do Yamaha and Honda send their old bikes to the crusher instead of selling them to race teams?
Where are all the old pipe/CF frame Ducati's Stoner was so successful on?
What's gonna happen if Audi pull the plug on Corse because they view the gap they're getting beaten by as embarrassing and detrimental to the brand..a waste of time and money?
What's in it for Bridgestone, who get slagged off every other weekend and supply tyres for nothing?
I could go on and on..and have many times before, you know that.
I backed Crutchlow right from the start..when many were questioning his ability and his right to a legitimate place on the grid. For the sake of British racing, I'd like to see him succeed.
But I will NOT blow smoke up his arse just because he was born in the same country as me.
If I think he's played a howler over his off track ducking and diving, I'll say so.
Some of you seem to think it is tantamount to treason criticising the lad..well tough fucking shit.
