Remember FB Corse? That high profile Italian team that was suppose to debut in MotoGP this year with a 3 cylinder bike and that often sent out contradicting press releases? Well Garry McCoy has parted ways with the team, after exactly one highly publicized shakedown test in Valencia, where they didn’t cut the grid with Dorna’s Franco Unicini who postponed their entry in MotoGP.
The team then disappeared under the radar after the test to show up again with a press release saying that they were delaying their second test because McCoy had come down with the flu, after that the team once again disappeared, now McCoy has decided to terminate his contract with FB Corse:
“After spending the last 4 months training at top level, today I am at my best mentally and physically to race. My goal is to come back to the World Championship. I thought FB Corse was ready to do the step but they haven’t accomplished the needs till now required. Hopefully soon, I will be able to update you with more news.”
That FB Corse had taken a bigger bite than they could chew was also apparent when Simone Grotzky Giorgi who was contracted to ride the FB Corse Bimoto Moto2 bike, showed up at the Mugello this weekend with a contract to ride for the rest of the season with Italo Fontana’s 125cc team.
