Moriwaki confirm five race plan

Moriwaki have confirmed their plans for participation in the MotoGP World Championship, with former Kawasaki rider Andrew Pitt set to ride the MD211VF prototype as a wildcard at five rounds.

Pitt will make his first appearance on the machine at the upcoming Gran Premio Cinzano de Italia on the 6th June at Mugello. One week later he will reappear at Catalunya and should make the last of three outings on European soil at the Czech Republic Grand Prix in August. The Australian will then race at Sepang in Malaysia and at his home race at Phillip Island, both in October.

"Europe is the home of MotoGP so obviously I am looking forward to taking the MD211VF to race there for the first time," commented project leader Mamoru Moriwaki. "This is a decisive year for us, which is why we decided to compete in five rounds. Our objective is to compete full-time in the MotoGP World Championship from 2005."

Moriwaki contested both Japanese rounds of the series in 2003, at Suzuka and Motegi, with Tamaki Serizawa on board.
