MotoGP Orchestral Music 2” gives Ducati what it while preserving the compromises keep the three factories in the

Big MotoGP news of the moment is creation of a new “Factory 2” category as a response to Ducati’s decision to from Factory (open 20 liters of fuel, five engine design frozen) to (spec ECU and software, 24 liters of 12 engines, no design freeze, soft rear tire).

the new rule, as soon as an Open achieves one of the following:

1. A win in dry conditions

2. Two finishes

3. Three third-place finishes

It automatically be switched to “Factory 2” in which the following new limits

1. 22.5 liters of fuel

2. engines

The press is treating as if it punishes Ducati for its Open-class but as I learned this morning, not does this give what it needs, it also the compromises that keep the factories in the series. As we shall this move does not Ducati or the Open factory s of Forward Racing’s Aleix and Colin Edwards, but it does the outrage of Honda ’s MotoGP Shuhei Nakamoto, and it brings of the paddock toward acceptance of rules that will all teams to use the spec software.

At Bridgestone’s recent three-day Island test, Andrea Ducati consistently showed the top speeds, reaching 212.5 This is just what we expect when a former Economy Run engine is given all the it wants. Out the window go most of the in which throttle response is by fuel skimping, and in its place full responsive acceleration.

And is no lack of top speed.

One of the most ways to conserve fuel is to compression ratio but doing so up the combustion chambers, slowing the This limits top-end and top speed. But with 22.5 of fuel, compression ratio can be chosen for performance and not for fuel Cam choice is opened up in the same

For an engine, this is like to robust health after illness.

As for nine engines of 12, this will be easy for which already knows how to run a on fewer. Certain critical such as the desmo valve-closing may limit valve accelerations if engines must do 18 races, but nine races, those don’t have to last as and so can be worked harder.

In effect, we are seeing Dorna’s Carmelo Ezpeleta, keeping his on the beat. By creating Factory 2 at the minute, he appears to “do something” to Nakamoto, while keeping less-open package still enough to encourage both and Yamaha, the latter through its own experiment with Espargaro and on two-year-old full-factory bikes.

If seems to imply that Honda might fear Ducati, think of the history: swashbuckled into MotoGP in its year, 2003, with stunning horsepower, and it was on the podium quickly (never mind the next year, Ducati put out of competition by moving its engine to the And the super insult came in when Honda had the formula from 990cc to 800.

Ducati’s new super-powerful missile, a guidance system named Stoner, made Honda and look irrelevant. So you can bet that higher leadership make clear to Nakamoto that it not tolerate more such

This is politics, and the Holy is to get the factories to accept Ezpeleta’s bit by bit—yes, they change moment to moment; remember saying, “I will never a spec tire in my series”?—as are embodied in rules to be introduced in Or is that 2015?

Good guys? Bad guys? The I look, the more I see just
