It’s refreshing to see that the Dorna is about as amused as we are here at Asphalt & Rubber over FB Corse’s “extremely positive” press release after the Italian MotoGP-hopeful team was denied entry into the premiere motorcycle prototype racing class. At the request of Dorna delegates, FB Corse has issued a second press release that rescinds their previous statement of being admitted into MotoGP, and now clarifies the situation with some prose that’s a little bit closer to the reality and truth of the matter.
The big takeaway from the situation is that FB Corse must now prove the FB01 in a race simulation test, which would have the race bike complete a race distance at race pace to show not only the bike’s competitiveness, but also its reliability. FB Corse’s new press release follows after the jump.
The FB Corse Team, would like to clarify, after talking to Dorna delegates, that the team FB Corse is not yet inside the MotoGP entry list following the decision, made by the team together with Franco Uncini and Oscar Gallardo, of continue developing the FB01 until Jerez MotoGP race, in order to be more competitive in the World Championship.
The Team FB Corse has had clearance to test at any time, before Jerez race. Due to the lack of time before Qatar and Japan race, the FB Corse will have to show a race simulation to Dorna before the first European round, that is the FB Corse main goal.
Franco Uncini and Dorna’s delegate Oscar Gallardo, are very pleased to see the work done by the FB Corse.
The FB Corse Team, would like to thank Dorna and Franco Uncini, for the chance given to the team to be part of the MotoGP World.
