Scot launches Moto2 project.

The Scot Racing Team has unveiled the motorcycle which it will race in next year's inaugural Moto2 World Championship.

Like fellow MotoGP team Tech 3, Scot has decided to design and build its own chassis, in partnership with Rapid Inside NCS.

"We opted for this solution - designing our own Moto2 instead of buying one from a factory - because, although more demanding, it allowed us to make use of our competencies. At the same time, we'll be able to be ultra-quick if radical changes should be required,” explained technical director Emanuele Ventura.

"The frame is totally adjustable, as far as centre of gravity and any offset are concerned. Our target is to develop a well-balanced bike, competitive on any circuit, instead of one performing only in ideal conditions. The bike is ready to tackle the track, although some specifications are still to be settled".

The prototype, which is on show in the Valencia paddock, features Showa suspension, Brembo brakes, Marchesini rims, Arrow exhaust, Acerbis saddle and Motoart fairing.

Scot Honda is on target to win the final 250cc World Championship with Hiroshi Aoyama in this weekend's season finale.

Scot has not yet announced riders for its Moto2 project or confirmed if it will continue in MotoGP for a third season in 2010.

The team, which presently runs Gabor Talmacsi in the premier-class, had been linked with a seventh Honda for Alex de Angelis backed by the Sammarinese government, but that seems to have gone quiet.
