The Grand Prix commission announced this weekend that from 2012 the 125cc class will be replaced by Moto3. Following the 250cc' replacement by Moto2 it was not a major surprise to see Moto3 receive the backup from FIM, IRTA and Dorna.
The Grand Prix commission statement said: “We have agreed that from 2012 the 125cc class will be replaced by Moto3, this has been approved in principle by all the members. The MSMA gave a majority approval and the rest of the members – the FIM, IRTA, and Dorna – have all approved.
“The basic concept is a 250cc, 4-stroke, one-cylinder engine with a maximum bore of 81mm. The aim is to make this category more competitive and cheaper. Our idea now is to make it a multi-engine category and not a single-engine class. Many things are still to be discussed but it is to be implemented for the 2012 season.”
