Moto2 accepting entries.

Teams wishing to compete in next year's inaugural Moto2 World Championship must submit an application before May 29.

“Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) have provided technical details of the engine for the Moto2 class to FIM, Dorna and IRTA, in order to allow teams to begin building and testing their chassis,” read an FIM statement. “Details may be obtained from FIM, Dorna or IRTA.

“The regular selection Committee composed of representatives of FIM, Dorna and IRTA will meet soon to establish the provisional Moto2 - 250cc entry list for 2010.

“Applications must be sent to IRTA by Friday 29th May.”

Moto2 bikes, which will use identical 600cc four-stroke engines supplied by Honda but a prototype chassis, will race alongside the existing 250cc two-strokes in 2010.

I don't believe it was mentioned anywhere with absolute certainty, that the class would be using production engines. As far as I know it was an assumption that everyone seemed to run with. With the one make engine rule now in place they can certainly go with a prototype engine, albeit with lower costs in mind...using less exotic or less expensive materials for construction. Even so, the engines should be at a fixed cost, whereas we don't really know the limitations on chassis construction. The way I look at it is this gives the teams a chance to survive even with absence of the other manufacturers.
