Record interest in Moto2 and Moto3 for 2015
21 August 2014 10:27
Record interest has been already been expressed in the 2015 Moto3 and Moto2 world championships ahead of the initial selection meetings due to take place during the forthcoming British GP at Silverstone.
Entries for both the 250cc single-cylinder Moto3 class and popular Moto2 class, which is powered exclusively by a Honda CBR600RR derived motor, are already over subscribed, according to International Race Teams Association boss Mike Trimby.
Some interested parties currently operating outside of the GP paddock have been rejected as IRTA and Dorna try and limit the entry in both classes to 32.
And Trimby told MCN: “Interest for both classes has been mad already. The first selection meeting is at Silverstone and we are well over subscribed. The target again is 32 in both. This year we had 33 in Moto3 and 34 in Moto2 and we’d like to go back to 32. But it is going to be hard. At Silverstone, they declare their plans and where possible inform us about riders and machinery. We give a provisional yes or no and then they need to comeback by Aragon with firmer plans and a security deposit to demonstrate they are serious. We’ve already told a lot of people no and not to waste their money doing any more research because there is not going to be a place. It is more like existing teams wanting to expand or teams of commercial interest to Dorna like from the Asian region that will be considered.”
