What is there to discuss? As much as people don't like the guy, I think he's completely right. Need a more nationalities on the grid as well as on the calender.

Each sentence could support a theoretical economic dissertation about the motivation for these changes and the implications (technological, economic, political, and otherwise) for the sport. My head is about to explode. Good day overall.



However, I do think Ezpeleta is making another mistake, rhetorically and philsophically. MotoGP can't pick either technology or entertainment. MotoGP picked technology in 2007. Arbitrarily picking entertainment would be a folly of equal magnitude. Motorsport is always entertainment, but entertainment is not always motorsport. Motorsport always involves technology, but technology does not always involve motorsport. If they will just focus on sport, and the ideas of sports competition (competition being the key word), they won't have to pick between the lesser of two evils.

What future, if the rules he proposes are implemented, GP is dead. Just curious, does Ezpeleta attend all the manufactureres new season extravaganzas



Spec ECU, rev limit, restrictions on engine development and a weight handicap system.



Does that sound like the premier prototype motorcycle racing series on the planet. Fuck it, kill it off, or at the least change the name. This is like going to bed with Jennifer Aniston, and waking up with that loud mouth dyke Rosie O'donnell

this will inevitably look like wsbk where people constantly bitch and moan about supposed advantages/handicaps



acceptable in production racing, but in gp?

why can't they just put those guys on stock r6s so that at least they all have the same equipment so that its only about the riders ...stupid motorcycles

What should MotoGP be, and how should it be paid for?

Is MotoGP to expensive or is the problem not enough revenue?

Ok, I’ll bite.

It is my opinion that MotoGP should be a racing competition between different bikes and different riders. Success should, in my opinion, be a result of a combination of bike development plus rider skill plus luck. In my opinion, this is the basis of what Motogp should be. In my opinion.



How should it be paid for? With money.



Seriously though, in my opinion, it should directly be paid for by those that develop the bikes. They, in turn should also, in my opinion, reap some of the direct profits.



Well, that’s my opinion.



Fire away.

And that my friend is why GP is different than any other bike racing series in the world. Its about INNOVATION, not spec engines, spec tires, spec ecu's and Oh My God, weight handicapping. You dont hear teams bitching in GP about other teams being faster because of tech regs, why, simple. All you are doing is drawing attention to your failure as an innovator. They may whine about being monetarily disadvantaged, but you rarely hear someone bitch about tech regs like they do in WSBK. The first thing that needs to change in GP is Ezpeleta himself.

Dude its Moto GP not Moto Proto GP..



the prob is they allowed it to get too high tech.. i dont care for the rev limit but a combined rider bike weight limit and and stock ECU is cool, the sport has been taken over by midgets and i hate midgets.. IMO they should strip off ALL and any rider assists also.



1 million Euro and you OWN the machine is wayyyy better than 3.5 million Euro to borrow a bike for a few months..
