Provisional 2014 MotoGP entry list revealed

Niccolo Canepa and Mike di Meglio join 2014 MotoGP entry list
The provisional entry list for the 2014 MotoGP World Championship has been released by the FIM.

The grid is set to remain at 24 riders - 11 factory and 13 of the new 'open' class (using the full control ECU system, but having extra fuel and engine changes) - with former Pramac Ducati rider Niccolo Canepa and former 125cc world champion Mike di Meglio the latest additions.

Canepa finished runner-up in FIM Superstock this year, and stood-in for Carlos Checa at two WSBK events, while di Meglio suffered an injury shortened season with JiR in Moto2.

World champion Marc Marquez is set to continue with the #93, Iodaracing - which ran Suter-BMWs this year - are yet to confirm their machinery while the only seat still officially available is alongside Michael Laverty at PBM.

Moto2 world champion Pol Espargaro, former title rival Scott Redding and di Meglio are class rookies.

Riders who will not return next year, unless they get the PBM seat, are: Ben Spies (retired), Randy de Puniet (Suzuki test rider), Claudio Corti, Lukas Pesek and Bryan Staring.
