"..the down-side was the inevitable focus on the two-stroke engine and ultimately led to the design stagnation we have today."



yeah, too bad grand prix 500 racing is slow and boring...that's what happens when you allow 2 strokes in racing

Wankel-all teams should be required to run Wankels. That would "spice up the technical interest"

I think they meant as long as one rider isn't the only one winning people will actually watch the races. If you know that such and such junior is gonna win 12 out of 13 races without afight that entire season, what's the purpose of watching.

Some one did make wankle motorcycles, I think it was Norton. I can use my internet savvy and hunt it down if anybody is interested. I am surprised that the wankle has not been used more, it has a good power to weight ratio.
