WSB boss Flammini digs at MotoGP

New MotoGP rules play right into WSB's hands, according to WSB boss

WORLD SUPERBIKE boss Paolo Flammini has spoken out about the new raft of rules and regulations about the future of MotoGP, and says that some of them are a 'gift' to WSB.

In the raft of new measures, exclusively revealed first on Visordown last month, includes restrictions on testing and cost. A ban on electronic suspension adjusters was also included.

A move to stop newcomers to the MotoGP class riding for an official factory team was also outlined. The batch of new regulations is, apparently, playing right in WSB hands.

Flammini said: "I believe that these decisions by Dorna can really contribute to the atteactiveness of the WSB championship as far as riders are concerned.

"With the changes, and what the young riders are allowed to do in MotoGP compared to WSB I believe that the MotoGP championship has made a real gift to World Superbikes."

You do have to wonder why MotoGP seems so set on shooting itself in its own foot right now...
