Mika Kallio - Marc VDS Racing

Mika Kallio

Finlandian, Mika Kallio is making his MotoGP debut this year. He has seen his share of success in the lower cylinder categories, taking home seven Grand Prix victories and an impressive 23 podiums during his 4 years of 125cc competition. His last two years there, with KTM, saw him take runner-up, but the title escaped him.

Mika's move to the Quarter Liters came in 2007. His competitveness and stellar riding style earned two Grand Prix victories and a nice collection of podiums that year, definitely putting him in the mix for a Championship title in 2008.

Although his final season in the realm of 250cc racing began with high hopes and 2 victories, it was not enough to claim the title that year either. Kallio's talent and confidence were evident to Ducati, who signed him to jockey their Pramac Racing Desmosedici GP9 for the 2009 season. Mika has re-signed with Pramac and piloted their machine for the 2010 season. With a best finish of 7th for his 2010 MotoGP season, Mika was not re-signed with Pramac, instead he made the switch to Moto2 and will be riding for the Marc VDS Racing campaign along with teammate Scott Redding.

Moto2 Racing

Announced as a new 4-stroke MotoGP World Championship class in 2010, Moto2 replaced the 250cc category. Moto2 is intended to be a prestigious yet cost-effective accompaniment to the premier class of MotoGP. Some of the key characteristics of this category of Grand Prix racing are a single engine supplier and a single tyre supplier. Honda Racing Corporation was chosen as the engine supplier, while Dunlop, currently present in the 125cc World Championships provide the tyres.

Moto2 technical specifications - in a nutshell

  • Powered by a one-make 600cc 4-stroke engine, producing around 150hp, the Moto2 class will continue the 250cc series' pursuit of developmental excellence with the running of a prototype chassis -free from limitation.

  • No production bike parts will be permitted for the frame, swing arm, fuel tank, seat or cowling, meaning that these aspects of the machine will be left to the manufacturer and designers' discretion.

  • Electronic systems will be more limited than those previously permitted in 250cc, which had seen select factories bringing in traction control in recent years. Moto2 rules will allow for data loggers, ECU and timing transponders supplied by the organiser, with a maximum total cost of the ECU's components set at 650 euros. No other electronic control, nor datalogging systems, will be present on the bikes.

Experience the excitement of season 2 of Moto2 Racing as Mika Kallio rides to capture his first Moto2 Championship crown.
