Open class project vital for Ducati future

Ducati’s revamped Desmosedici machine that will be raced in the new Open category in MotoGP next season is an essential project geared at preparing the Bologna factory for a potential major rule change in the future. South American Yonny Hernandez will race the new bike as part of the Pramac squad in 2013. The project will essentially be this year’s GP13 model...

All the engines and fuel in the world won't help the Rossi inspired GP13 as a base. And as for Hernandez - he's a Rocketman. This project is doomed as it stands. No wonder Laverty wisely walked away.

I reckon it's worth a punt to someone not currently in MotoGP. The 2015 model will be based off the new 2014 Gigi bike, whenever that appears, by which time it might not suck. If you can get a spot as Hernadez's team mate and hold on to your ride for 2015, you might just end up on a decent bike.

Of course you might also end up on another pile of shi t, but I reckon it's a risk worth taking to get yourself seen in the MotoGP paddock. Anything beats racing in a grid of 16 bikes in front of crowds of barely 10,000 in WSBK.

 you have just echoed my thoughts exactly. We may as well go to a one make cup if saving money is the only thing we worry about, how many people will pay to see a dumbed down version of motogp? how many manufacturers will bother racing at all?, how many people will buy next years road bikes without the developement to make them better? We will just hang onto the bikes we have. All this penny pinching now will come back and bite them on the ass. On the plus side..... no sorry can't find the plus side.

Open Class...Nonsense!

There are standard common sense rules for racing then there are over restricted and excessive (hidden agenda) rules producing only favoured results at the end of every year. Apparently there is another class, the 'Open Class' - don't make me laugh, its anything but open. Call it a different name, anything that reflects what it is but never 'Open'. I can think of a few names to call it.

You nitwits

Not even the one true motorcycling God - Eddie Lawson - could control the weather. Or perhaps he could? Hacks always received a frosty reception when approaching his motorhome.
