After taking entries for the 2010 Moto2 season, 47 teams, with 91 riders, filed to join the new series. After reviewing the bids, the Selection Committee, which is comprised of Dorna, the FIM, and the IRTA, whittled the list down to 27 teams, with 41 riders.

A further 10 teams were placed on a reserve list, while the remaining 10 teams had their requests rejected. All of the Moto2 hopeful teams have until the Portuguese Grand Prix to confirm the details of their team. This includes details of the team structure, the bikes, and the riders. After the Portugal GP, the Selection Committee will have another round of cuts.

We have no word on what teams have been admitted or turned down from the series, but we can expect many of MotoGP Satellite teams and 250GP teams to have a spot at the table. We do know that the Moto2 grid is shaping up to be one of the largest in international road racing, and much larger than the current 250GP class.
