MotoGP bosses have confirmed massive interest in the new 600cc four-stroke Moto2 class, with applications for 91 riders to compete in the 250cc world championship replacement series. 

Interested teams had to submit applications for entry by yesterday (Friday) to the International Race Teams Association.

And it has just been confirmed in Mugello the mass interest in the new class, which will feature bikes running modified production Honda CBR600RR engines housed in prototype chassis.

A total of 47 teams have applied to be part of the new series, which will start in 2010.

Only one team has submitted a proposal to run two 250cc two-stroke machines next season, which is still allowed under rules.

Moto2 though will be exclusively four-stroke in 2011.

Representatives from the FIM, Dorna and IRTA will now conduct a selection process, with numbers needing to be slashed to around 35 entries.

Teams will be notified whether they have been successful at the next round of the world championship in Catalunya on June 14 where a provisional entry list will be drawn up.
