GP Tech Plans MotoGP Wildcard At Indy

GPtech has secured a wildcard grid spot in the Moto GP class at this year's Indianapolis Moto GP event.

GPtech contracted BCL Motorsports to design a frame and has partnered with Vesrah Suzuki/MCJ Motorsports as a technical partner on the project.

The frame is manufactured from billet aluminum and designed to accept a Suzuki GSXR 1000 engine.

The project has been in the works since January and quietly moving forward until a grid spot was guaranteed.

A short list of submitted acceptable riders is soon to follow.

"The new CRT rules have allowed us the freedom to develop a complete program that is worthy of being on the Moto GP grid - A big thanks goes out to everyone behind the scenes helping!"
