Good to see Colin Smiling! He’s got the (future of motoGP) world resting on his shoulders… Looks like everyone’s having a hoot… LoL
I love that the Aprilia has a clean, easy to read, analog tachometer. The dash looks like it was sourced straight from the street bike! They may be stretching the rules but if it improves the show and makes it affordable for smaller teams to participate then so be it. I love the pure prototypes but the war of spending has been killing MotoGP. The last WSBK race at Imola had 5 different manufacturers in the top 5. CRT’s won’t restore that sort of parity to MotoGP this year but I think they’re essential for MotoGP’s future. If you’re Aprilia you don’t have to win races this year to prove a point; your far less expensive superbike is nipping at the heels of the satellite prototypes already and is only going to get better.
Great picture rossi when he told colin that he was going to beat Stoner.
