Ezpeleta's knowledge

evidently doesn't exist.

The Spaniard insisted that MotoGP bikes consist largely of standard motorcycle parts. And then he claimed that a prototype motorcycle can be a production bike with just one component changed from standard spec.

"There are many parts of a MotoGP bike that come from standard bikes, many parts, the clutch for example.......or the chain, the chain is exactly the same," he said. This is manifestly untrue.

MotoGP manufacturers were aghast at Ezpeleta's outburst. "We though it was the other way round, the most of the parts on a MotoGP bike are prototype," said a spokesman for on eof MotoGP's main manufacturers. "It seems we have wasted 50 million dollars developing a prototype MotoGP bike!"
This from Roadracer world, it wasn't available online at the time of the original posting


all I can say is hooooooolllllllyyyyyyyyy ssshhhhhiiiiiiiiiiittttt.

The ignorance displayed towards the series by it's proprieter is frankly astounding.....

LOL... I got admit I thought he was a bit of a dumbass, but this is way beyond the doubts I had for the man...

What a retard! Oh well, there are tons of CEO's out there that are just as clueless but for some reason are entrusted to run large business...

Go figure...

reality is tho that I don't think that what he does matters a whole lot, FIM and manufacturers and riders committees seem to all be seeing eye to eye these days, so whatever he wants, they can shoot down with room to spare anyways.

Embarrasing...
But he isnīt setting the rules either as MSMA is taking care of that and FIM approving.

I am not sure if he gets a vote or if it is more that he is trying to push for certain things. the pure technical stuff is down to the other parts inovlved, this is not good at all though...

I think Dorna get a vote, FIM get a vote and MSMA get a vote. That's my understanding anyhow.

But in order for MSMA have to vote they need a majority, and same with FIM, Ezy here can pretty much vote based on what he had for breakfast and whether he had a fight with his wife that morning or not.
