Speedweek: Kalex primed for MotoGP entry with Yamaha engine

German publication has stated that Kalex’s Alex Baumgärtel has confirmed that he is in talks with Marc VDS Racing Team and the Pons team – both Moto2 front-runners – about a possible chassis collaboration for a step up to MotoGP in 2015. Both teams have expressed an interest in stepping up to the premier class, and could do so with the Yamaha lease engine agreement. Baumgärtel has allegedly commented that the company would need at least six months to prepare a chassis once it has received the necessary data from Yamaha. However, with nothing confirmed, time is ticking down should a bike be ready for the post-season Valencia test.
