Mccoy Moves On From Fledgling MotoGP Project

Australian Garry McCoy won’t return to the MotoGP paddock, deciding to end his relationship with the FB Corse team.

McCoy believes FB will be unable to make its MotoGP debut this season with its three-cylinder machine, and the Aussie has decided to move on — although he doesn’t have another gig to fall back on.

“After spending the last four months training at top level, today I am at my best mentally and physically to race,” said McCoy.

“My goal is to come back to the world championship. I thought FB Corse was ready to take the step but they haven’t accomplished what they have had to at this point in time. Hopefully soon, I will be able to update you with more news.”

Earlier in the year, McCoy was dumped as Triumph’s factory world supersport rider just before the start of the season.

McCoy took part in a special ‘timing test’ on the FB01 three-cylinder machine at Valencia in March, after which the team was told it must complete a full race-distance simulation before it can enter its three-cylinder motorcycle in a grand prix. As yet, that hasn’t occurred.
