well I've got a much more clearly defined line between a prototype class and a production class I guess. I don't regard WSBK or MotoGP as inherently better or worse than each other but they're certainly different.
I consider even the spec tire to be a bit of an abomination, a spec engine is essentially nascar.
And I really don't think it's gonna make it cheaper, Aprilia sure aren't gonna spend any less so maybe it'll make it cheaper for Aspar's team, but I sure don't recall Aspar bitching that it was too expensive. And there's been plenty of occations that the others have run at the front, the reason it's getting "so bad" is because KTM boycotted the class when they heard the Moto2 rules were coming. A self fullfilling prophecy. And I don't blame them one bit for not wanting to do Honda's advertising for them in Moto2.
But ya, in a nutshell... production stuff in the production class, prototype stuff in the prototype classes, not "mix and match."
I mean if WSBK introduced a prototype 750cc 2-stroke in a production chassis class I'd be equally pissed off, irrelevant of the fact that I think that'd be a bitchen awesome class.
HAIL TO THE KING!!
