I agree that policing it is going to be too hard. Heck, local US races can't even police the bikes that are supposed to be dyno controlled. You've got teams out there with hidden map switches and things that they cheat with- can you imagine with the money MOTOGP teams have?

I like the no electronics rule too- riders like Vale and Nicky will reap the benefits from that!

They should just ban the technoligy because it promotes a unfair racing dynamic.

Racing as a whole is shifting from a focus on driver talent. (right-or-wrong??) To a focus on the machine, and the technology that drives it. Seems kinda natural considering where most of the money/parts come from. However, if your a fan, passionate about the art-of-the-drama that is motorsport! The machine cannot be the star. I hate to bring NASCAR up, but its a prime example of what I'm talking about here. The drives, or personalities within the sport are the star's, not the machines, and it seems to work. (Listening AMA/DMG?)

I believe this, too. I have read that Vale doesn't like the traction control as much as the other riders.
