If Yamaha is indeed planning on racing in Moto3, when do you think they will actually begin competing? As soon as next season, or will there be a longer wait than that?
I'm inclined to think that Yamaha is not content to continue letting KTM and Honda have all the glory. Moto3 is quickly becoming some of the most exciting racing on GP weekends an I would LOVE to see Yamaha competing there as well...Yamaha boss Masao Furusawa said: "From the standpoint of saving costs we want to forget about Moto3. But in terms of growing up riders we need to do something. We want to catch up the competitors, so we are doing something for Moto3."
Furusawa wouldn't confirm that Yamaha planned to enter Moto3 immediately in 2012 but he added: "We are preparing an engine and also a complete bike. We haven't track tested yet but we are doing lots of computer simulations for the engine and chassis."
