First of all Stefan Bradl was declared fir to race in the Oz GP. We remind you that he was sidelined at Sepang last week, after fracturing an ankle during the practice. With the German back into the game, fight for the 5th adn 6th place is back on: Bradl is one point behind Bautista and 31 down from Crutchlow. Let battle begin!

Nicky Hayden stays in MotoGP, as he and Aspar have inked a 2-year deal. The Kentucky Kid will ride a Honda production racer Jorge Martinez, the team's boss will bring to replace the 2013 Aprilia. Why Aspar is ditching Aprilia? Gigi Dall'Igna.

Finally, the Grand Prix Commision brings some new regulations for the Moto3 and MotoGP classes. In Moto3 "engine manufacturers will be required to make available six gearboxes, comprised of two specifications, and to allow teams to decide at the first event."

More comes for MotoGP:"the temperature of fuel, which may not be less than 15 degree Celsius below the ambient temperature, will now be checked in a separate container prior to the fuel tank being filled.

This is due to the shapes of some fuel tanks making it impossible for a probe to measure temperature in all sections of the fuel tank. The fuel tank must be empty prior to filling from the separate container.

For practical and cost reasons, wildcard entries in the MotoGP™ class will be free to use any ECU and software.

MotoGP class wildcard entries will be permitted to use a maximum of three engines at each event," reports.

At last, from 2014 we'r going to have Factory and Open entires: factory team run their onw software with Marelli ECUs and have fewer fuel allocations for a race, open ones run spec code and more fuel.
Cometh the Oz round!
