More from FB Corse Team Launch

Today’s FB Corse official team presentation in Milan has clarified some questions surrounding this Italian team.
FB Corse’s three cylinder bike designed and built by Oral Engineering will have a racing budget of 5 million euros that will have to last the entire 18 race season.

FB Corse hasn’t been officially accepted in the MotoGP 2010 Championship, but according to the team this is only formality, but the bike will have to undergo approval by Dorna.

The final test should be at Valencia and the rider will have to lap no more that 3 seconds from the last qualifier during the 2009 Valencia GP.

The lap time sounds feasible, but once the team is accepted, McCoy will be subjected to the regulations that prohibit any MotoGP rider testing outside the official tests and on MotoGP race tracks, unless the team gets a special dispensation to test as this year’s rookies did.
The greatest problem facing the FB01 is that it’s never been on a race track and has only been on dynos, but the first test should be towards the end of this month with Luca Cadalora and that leaves only one month of very intense work before the season opener in Qatar April 11th.
