McCoy leaves FB Corse

Former 500cc and WSBK race winner Garry McCoy has split from the FB Corse team, which he now feels will be unable to make its MotoGP debut this season.

McCoy took part in a special 'timing test', witnessed by IRTA and Dorna officials at Valencia in March, after which FB Corse was told it must complete a full race-distance simulation before it can enter its three-cylinder motorcycle in a grand prix.

That is yet to happen and a statement from McCoy revealed he is no longer part of the project:

“After spending the last 4 months training at top level, today I am at my best mentally and physically to race. My goal is to come back to the World Championship. I thought FB Corse was ready to do the step but they haven't accomplished the needs till now required. Hopefully soon, I will be able to update you with more news.”

The other new MotoGP project, by Inmotec, is also yet to confirm a debut date.

Following Valentino Rossi's accident, the full time MotoGP grid has shrunk to just 16 riders.
