The Selection Committee comprising delegates from the FIM, Dorna and IRTA met on the 11th June to consider applications from teams wishing to participate in the Moto2 class in 2010.
It was decided to provisionally offer entries in this class to 27 teams (41 riders). A further 10 teams were placed on a reserve list and, regrettably, it was necessary to refuse applications from 10 teams.
The teams provisionally accepted will have until the Portuguese Grand Prix to confirm the details of their entry including the team structure, machines to be used and riders contracted. Decisions on the teams accepted will be made in Estoril based on this information.
Due to the overwhelming interest in this new class and the quality of the initial applications it is the intention of FIM, Dorna and IRTA to accept an entry significantly larger than the current 250cc class.
