I'm pretty sure 28 is the maximum age for Moto3 participation and not 26. He might have been 28 when the season started and became 29 while it was underway.

I know that Koyama could have had a start in 2011, whilst he became 29 on the second day of free practice in Qatar,
but he was allowed to participate because he was 28 on the first practice day. He never got started, because he couldn't find a good sponsor.

@Plaggie you're right, it's 28 on January 1st of the championship year. Or 25 for rookies.

For Moto 2 it's 28 as well so he's not eligible for Moto2 next year. MotoGP has an age limit of 50, however...

Oh and @? I think you'll find there's one word that applies to you...

I'm pretty sure Moto2 has no age limit either. Mika Kallio is 29, Anthony West is 31, Rolfo was 32 and he was riding and Elias was 29 when he was riding. So it's only Moto3 with an age limit.

I dont like the age rule. The younger riders can learn alot from 'the old guard'. I loved it when older riders like Ueda, Ui, Chechinello, Jenkner, Locateli etc were racing in the 125 class. I think it adds more depth to the field.

He was clearly underperforming this year (altough he had some good races in the rain, he couldn't finish), but would be still with the team if Spanish sponsors weren't be in the current situation. Sad that sponsor's nationality is the most important these days.
