No flyaway ban for 125GP world championship

Next year’s world 125GP world championship will not be exclusively run at European races only.

It was rumoured in Jerez that MotoGP bosses were considering scrapping the flyaway 125GP races to help cash-strapped teams survive the global financial meltdown.

The huge logistics costs faced by cash-strapped teams to race in Qatar, Japan, America, Australia and Malaysia is threatening the future of several 125GP teams, according to sources.

But the series would not only be run at the 11 European round scheduled for 2010.

International Race Teams Association boss Mike Trimby said: “I’ve heard that rumour but there is no truth in that at all.

"Dorna has an obligation to provide a show to the overseas promoters and I’m sure they would be in breach of their contract if they cut back.  That has never been discussed.”
