So is A Espargaro riding an Open bike or is it an Open 1.5. or a Factory/Open 3.1415?

Maybe we need to ask the real organizer- Honda- for a ruling.

It just occurred to me that if Donda (Dorna/Honda- the series organizer) really wanted to play nice in the sandbox, they need to create about 25 more categories.

That way EVERYBODY will win. Isn't that what they do in nursery school, everyone gets a prize so no one goes home unhappy?

I need to send this suggestion in to the chimps that run Donda.

Just have to make the podium a bit bigger.........

Alex Wisdom will be returning to that series this year. So there's at least one American to cheer for. He's a good kid too.

I love it, but I think the main reason it's not as appealing to watch for some is that there is no tangible brand competition.
And we know who owns that series.

Thanks to DORNA for wadding the rule book into a tangled mess. Sort of the bed-head version of logic I suppose. I was remineded of the early days of 2011 season...

Unfair Advantage

Donda is close but doesn't quite have the right ring to it...

Lesse, the entity that is really in charge should come first. Move that letter, ditch this one. Presto!

Horna

Yeah, I like it.

Horna Chief - Carmelo Ezpeletasan

The Wikipedia page for Dorna Sports has a "Questionable Practices" section which should continue to expand.

Dagofast,

I bow to your superior naming skills.

I wonder if Honda will respond to Horna's capitulation by re-working the "production" racer to be more competitive with the Ducatis and Forward Racing bikes. Right now they are looking worse than the TT did last year.

I think the fans are either:
1. The cards - gettin' played, if you know what I mean
or
2. The table - gettin' upset
