Updated 2014 MotoGP rider line-up

Iodaracing is now the only MotoGP team still to name its machinery and final rider.
An updated version of the 2014 MotoGP rider line-up, following the announcement that Broc Parkes will join Michael Laverty at PBM next season.

Factory entries will continue with their own ECU software but face four-litres less race fuel and a maximum of five, rather than twelve, engine changes during the season compared to the Open class.

The Open class, which replaces 'CRT', must use the full control ECU system.

Iodaracing is the only team yet to name its machinery and final rider - Niccolo Canepa, named on last month's provisional entry list, ruling himself out. Ioda, which used Suter-BMWs this year, is believed to be in talks with Aprilia and Leon Camier...

@Paddles We will have to wait and see what the new season brings. The Factory/ Works bikes will always be best regardless and they (Factory Teams) will always have the best riders. I cant see no one other than Honda coming up with the money for Marquez. Much as I want to see more competition we have to be realistic but I hope you are right and that the open class come up with something.

If you were a satellite team with a factory bike, why would you bother? Surely open class will cost you much less money and give you the same chance of winning a race and possibly give you more tv exposure. Hopefully if the satellite teams pulled back to open class, the factory class would wither and finally die.
