By powers of deduction it must be either Racing Team By Quereseno (most likely) or Holiday Gym Racing. Holiday Gym currently sponsor the G22 team, but as they are listed separately for 2011 I am assuming that Holiday Gym are taking their money to a different team next year - who knows which one.

Of the other new teams... Iodaracing are already a well established organisation (they have already built a Moto3 bike). Monlau Competicion (with Kev Coughlan) and QMMF (Alex Cudlin) have already entered some this year as wildcards.

All the others are current full time Moto2 teams.

Tell a lie, Racing Team By Quereseno are better knows as Team Blusens - mystery solved.

So either Uccio has snagged Holiday Gym as title sponsors, or the whole thing has failed to get off the ground.

To be fair Uccio does get a lot of holidays but I don't think he's been to the gym much.

Uccio will be running the WTR/Speesmaster team next season with Iannone, i heard that rumour from British Eurosprt.
And im guessing that Pol Espargaro will be going to SpeedUp by looking at the sponsor

Thanks for clearing that up Greener - so Uccio is effectively joining a current team rather than setting up a new one.

I thought Pol was joining his big bro at Pons... but then I see Axel is staying too and they only have two bikes.... so Pol is taking the Tuenti $$$ to Speed Up.

I think Iannone should stay with Speed Up - he or Simon would be favourites for next year.

All good info, thanks, even with 40 riders it is still very difficult to get a ride, in the 250 days they all came up from 125, now they come from everywhere, should have names for the teams soon, I agree, Iannone, Simon, De Angelis, and Redding will be the favorites. Brad will need a learning year, which these have had.

I think as well the switch to 4-stroke has broken the natural progression there was previously. We were so used to seeing top 125 guys just slot straight into 250.

Yes this year, some really promising 125 and 250 talent - some "next big thing's" have had horror years - Pasini, di Meglio, de Rosa etc. Then you have washed up has beens like Nieto & Rolfo - who went to WSB and were rubbish! - suddenly have a career again!

Brad will need to adapt to a 4-stroke quickly. A learning year? No such thing in GP's. One bad season can kill your career, it has happened to faster guys than Bradley this season.
