Whatever happened to that american motoczysz team that were on the discovery channel a few years ago, have they even come close to entering moto gp?

With the advent of the 800cc MotoGP era, Motoczysz decided to abandon the project and focus on an all-electric superbike. I recently read, though, that they could reconsider enterin MotoGP when it switches to 1000cc for 2012.

@md Zane

Yes, partly agree with you there

It makes me wonder why they didn't lease engines for the next 2 years (perhaps they couldn't)

IMO they should be spending their money and time on the handling and data acquisition side of things until the 1000's are back.

If they spend the next couple of seasons getting the tricky stuff like chassis and swing arm flex sorted, they'll be in good shape for 2012

Anyway, good luck to them, hope they can hang in there

Motocyzysyzyyz stopped due to the move to 800 (they had made a 990). Also I think due to the radical engine design they were having troubles. They then moved to electric to compete in the TTGXP at Isle of Mann and talked themselves up only to fail to get even a third of the way round the course. Pity both the engine and suspension were out of the box thinking. Hope they start ramping up for 2012.

If you pay monkeys you earn peanuts.
I sense Ilmor all over again, which will be a shame as we need a half desent grid, that was why I started to follow WSBK more as they have the numbers and it is close racing.
Just look what a joke F1 is.
Moto2 looks like being the class to watch and maybe start a Moto GP team in. :p
