Should produce some good racing along the lines of 'GP2'.
Plenty of room for innovation in the chassis area.

The eagerly-anticipated Moto2 class will run a ‘One Make Engine Regulation’ upon it’s introduction as a replacement class for 250cc, the FIM announced in the early hours of Sunday morning. The Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna, Chairman), Claude Danis (FIM), Hervé Poncharal (IRTA) and Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA), in the presence of Messrs Ignacio Verneda (FIM Sports Director), Javier Alonso (Dorna) and M. Paul Butler (Secretary of the meeting), unanimously accepted a proposal made to them by the MSMA in a meeting held on April 11 at the Losail International Circuit.

The announcement also revealed that the class would be introduced in the 2010 season.

Speaking after the decision was made, Mr. Danis explained the reasoning behind the move to a single engine supplier.
“We had already decided that the chassis should be open to all manufacturers, but we would like to have a control engine in order to reduce costs,” stated the FIM representative. “The decision as to whom will be the sole manufacturer will be made in the next month, but we have already had two parties expressing an interest and we will discuss the situation with them.

Many of the technical regulations for the Moto2 class have yet to be confirmed, although the introduction of the class in 2010 would speed up the process.

There are currently no plans, however, for a solitary tyre supplier for the category.
“Right now the tyre situation is that we will have an open field. However, it is something that we will think about and discuss,” concluded Mr. Danis.
