2015 Moto2 Provisional Entry List Updated - 23 Kalexes, 2 Suters, 3 Tech 3s, 3 Speed Ups

The FIM today issued an updated entry list for the 2015 Moto2 season. The list has only minor changes to the original line up, with teams now having to enter a chassis name. The Kalex domination of the series is nearly complete, with 23 out of 31 entries. Speed Up and Tech 3 each have 3 entries to their names, while Suter retains just two riders, both rookies. Florian Alt has at least raced in the Moto3 series, while Malaysian rider Zaqhwan Zaidi is completely new to the series.

Very sad to see the intermediate class becoming a spec class once again. I've completely lost interest in it.

I wonder if anyone will switch back to Suter midseason, amid the usual racer moans that someone else is getting better support or equipment?

I don't understand this, Suters were competitive last year - and it gives the racer no opportunity to have an advantage over the rest of the grid if you all have the same equipment? It's this absurd conservatism that has already led to the FTR and Moriwaki chassis no longer being on the grid.
