I agree not worth aurguing. The only thing I'd add is Edurance World Champiosnhip rules prohibit changing the throttles, or just about anything else, from the stock homologated bike. WSBK rules allow the throttle to be changed to ride by wire to keep Honda relavent.

Add to that the entry list for this race had Stoner et al. on a 2013 CBR, and I'd say they didn't do half bad against yamaha's brand new "MotoGP" bike, as they advertise it.

So all that said i think Stoner did a great job, and gathered that one up nicely to get away relatively unscathed.

And still you compare your experiences to the likes of Casey Stoner.

Don't think that would have stopped his body from impacting the crash barrier as seen in the video

"Honda Racing have apologised to Casey Stoner for a throttle malfunction which left the former MotoGP world champion with a broken shoulder blade and tibia.

In his first competitive race since retiring in 2012, Stoner, 29, crashed at the Suzuka 8 Hour endurance race.

The Australian blamed a stuck throttle for the high speed crash and a valve problem was later discovered.

"HRC would like to apologise to Casey and thank him for the effort he made in attending the race," said Honda Racing.

"This kind of problem hasn't arisen before.

"However, Honda Racing Corporation will cease using this throttle specification and will design a new one to be used for endurance races."

Stoner, who won the MotoGP world titles in 2007 and 2011, said after the accident: "Well my #Suzuka8H ended spectacularly! Stuck Throttle = Broken Scapula + Fractured Tibia and a few more tweaks. Sucks!" "
