Control tyre proposal splits motogp.com readers

The proposal to bring in a single-tyre format to MotoGP in 2008 has divided opinions across the board since it was announced by Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta on Saturday afternoon at Motegi.

The proposal to bring in a single-tyre format to MotoGP in 2008 has divided opinions across the board since it was announced by Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta on Saturday afternoon at Motegi. Motogp.com readers are nearly split down the middle on the subject, which was thrown out for debate in the most recent survey.

Posed with the question Should MotoGP adopt a control tyre rule in 2008 30949 readers cast their vote over the course of the past week. 52.79% oppose the change, whilst 47.21% were in favour of making the switch from three tyre manufacturers to a single supplier.

The proposal is currently being discussed by the Grand Prix Commission, with a final decision set to be made on the weekend of the Polini Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix later this month.

This weeks survey focuses on the GMC Australian Grand Prix, and most specifically the three home riders Casey Stoner, Chris Vermeulen and Anthony West. Cast your vote on how many of the Australian trio will step onto the podium at Phillip Island by visiting the motogp.com homepage.
