Start­ing the fastest bikes mid-pack is a recipe for dis­as­ter

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The new WSB grid rules for 2017 for race two af­ter the Satur­day race 1 re­sults are a com­plete farce. Why is it Dorna are hell­bent on fur­ther de­stroy­ing the WSB week­end ex­pe­ri­ence with such a pa­thetic idea? There are many top rid­ers in WSB and I have been a Jonathan Rea fan for years – I’ve said all along that on a com­pet­i­tive ma­chine he would pre­vail. He has done me proud do­ing it, not once but twice in a row. That said, the new for­mat is pants and not leather ones at that. Why can’t they ei­ther leave the rules alone or mir­ror the BSB rules which re­ally set the stan­dard. No won­der BSB is re­garded as the best su­per­bike se­ries in the world; the teams, the rid­ers, the rules, the tracks and the fans. Come on Dorna... get a grip. Gavin Ritchie, email
