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...

 Hayden would be a great signing for Suzuki if they ever returned. The only reason why Suzuki came good when they were last in the paddock is because they had extra engines given to them in order to stay competitive.

By 2015 Suzuki !

May be back. Within the ambit of global technological throttle, Suzuki will be hard pressed to compete with Mahindra, should they (Mahindra) decide to contest the top class.  Suzuki are over and done with like Guzzi V8's with dustbin fairings.

Nick needs to secure one of those valve sprung L-4 customer HRC bikes and ask his erstwhile Ducati team mate to give him the inside track on how the bloody thing works and where it doesn't.

Not that he would translate it into a serious result in any event anyway.

Back to Suzuki. I did notice a perfectly restored GSX 1100 on the way to work. No R,no GSXR, no RR,no Katana. For what its worth it brought back fond memories. Back in the day,some of us called it the dancing doughnut, but it was honest.

One of the major issues concerning racing the Suzuki is apparently being able to complete race distance within 20litres of fuel. While this rule is touted as r&d for factories and even money saving on some occasions, in reality all it does is present yet another barrier to factories joining the series. This is a shame. If Suzuki KNOW their bike cannot be competitive with the prototypes and complete the race within the fuel limits then no amount racing wildcards will help them. What they'll need is time and good programmers- all of which is considerably more costly than an extra litre or two of fuel.

good point on the fuel starvation rule Red, as you say if the purpose of rules is to make racing cheaper they've failed spectacularly. kawasaki probably won't look in the direction of MotoGP when their main reason for racing is to sell bikes and the zx10r is doing that with aplomb in WSB on a bike we can buy off the shelf(ok, not exactly but it's a bloody fast tool off the shop floor). motogp is fast becoming the biking equivalent of f1, no real relationship to what we ride, it's vanity racing for a few overpaid pilots and pissing rights for the factories. it's becoming more irrelevant with each passing season.

 Suzuki like in 2010 with the extra engines will be given more fuel to stay competitive while the rest of the field will have 20 litres.

The Future

The primary role of racing is to sell bikes, the secondary roll is to develop bikes the rest is just money making and spectacle. What does Moto GP have to offer manufactures who want to join in? Restricted ECU, restricted FUEL, restricted TYRES, restricted ENGINES, restricted ENGINE NUMBERS and so on. On top of that you might have to sign a 5 YEAR contract of commitment regardless of what the financial future may hold for your company and sponsors. It's too ridiculous to take seriously surely this is a bad joke!

With so many restrictions there is only one conclusion for the future – one dominant frame design, one dominant engine design and therefore one dominant manufacturer. All riders cruising around at one efficient pace. Nobody has an advantage so no overtaking just nice clean and efficient riding lap after lap after lap ...

Of course I would like to see Suzuki return to racing and many other manufacturers but under these conditions why would they bother? Rules with excessive restrictions can never lead to new development, experimentation is forbidden!

My advice for Suzuki – save yourself, stay away from Moto GP, join the alternative GP – open class 1000cc racing (which doesn't actually exist yet but later maybe?)
