EXCLUSIVE! to access a huGe global audience ADVeRTISe in GPWeeK Top teams confirmed as Moto2 entries close Grid numbers to be cut by ruthless pruning ENTRIES for next year’s Moto2 grid, which closed during the Motegi weekend, have been slashed by more than half, in an attempt to limit the size of the class – to prevent overcrowding on the track and in the paddock. Of 36 teams that applied, looking for places for 61 riders, only 15 were accepted, accounting for just 29 riders. According to the FIM statement, “a limited number of other teams have been placed on a pending list to be considered later for the remaining places. It was unfortunately necessary to refuse applications from a significant number of other teams, mainly those currently competing in other classes or Championships.” The successful teams are required to demonstrate commitment by lodging a 20,000- Euro security deposit with IRTA, to be repaid in instalments over the next five years. The ideal number of entries is between 34 and 36, but crept up to 40 in the class’s first year, due to a surge in interest. The first season has shown which teams are stronger, and they make up the 15-strong list. As well as the obvious front-running candidates like Gresini, Aspar and Marc VDS Racing, MZ has been kept on the list. The successful teams are: Forward Racing Gresini Racing Interwetten Moriwaki Moto2 * Jack & Jones by A.
