The long awaited 250cc replacement has been outlined after a meeting of the Grand Prix Commission today at Motegi.
The current 250cc class will remain for a further two seasons before a four stroke, 600cc engined class with a free choice of chassis for manufacturers or teams is introduced.
This hints that the engine may well be a control unit in order to make costs acceptable to some smaller teams, as the current two stroke engines are relatively cheap to run. It is still to be decided who is in the running to supply such an engine.
