Marc VDS considering move to MotoGP™

Marc VDS considering move to MotoGP™

The Marc VDS Racing Team confirmed rumours about a possible move up to MotoGP™ for next year in Jerez today, though stated that talks with organizers and manufacturers were still in the very early phases.

Team Manager Michael Bartholemy told that whilst preliminary talks were being held with Yamaha about the possibility of running an "Open" class bike, one big question has to be answered first.

"I need to speak with Carmelo [Ezpeleta] first", he commented. "It all depends on whether we can get an entry next year or not."

He would not be drawn in on which other manufacturers might be in the running, but said that they are considering both a one- or two-rider team. He commented: "This depends on what situation Tito [Rabat] will be in at the end of the season."

Further developments may not be far around the corner as Bartholemy plans to speak with Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta at the next round in Le Mans.
