MotoGP: A Suggestion For Improvement

For those of you who saw the MotoGP Open link in a new window race of Le Mans 2012, you know what I'm going to suggest. For those of you who haven't seen the race, go and see it. You'll not be sorry.

After having seen several seasons worth of motorcycle racing, the best races have always been those that were qualified as "WET". So instead of hoping for rain, why not put sprinklers on the side of the track, and make the track wet?

Wet MotoGP Sprinklers

This has many advantages:

  1. Wet track is a great equalizer. Less competitive motorcycles can reach positions never reached before.
  2. Even CRT bikes were doing very well. Rain makes an even-playing field for all motorcycles.
  3. It really becomes the skill of the racer that counts, not the bike.
  4. Less research, and therefore less money will go into making the motorcycle more powerful. Power doesn't help in rain, skill does.
  5. Less money will be spent on tires. No more slicks, just rain tires.
  6. Spectators will actually enjoy the races, even more when the sun shines, but the track is wet.
  7. The riders will enjoy the races themselves. Listen to what the main contenders had to say, they loved yesterday.
Disadvantages? I can't really think of one. Can you?

So what do you think. Make all MotoGP races "wet"??
