    Hidden in an FIM press release that pretended to be about fuel
    compositions is this little gem:

    "The Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta
    (Dorna, Chairman), Claude Danis (FIM), Herv Poncharal (IRTA) and
    Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA), in the presence of M. Paul Butler (Secretary
    of the meeting), in a meeting held today at the circuit of Assen,
    unanimously decided to introduce the following change to the FIM Road
    Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations:

    Replacement of the 250cc class

    "For application from 1.1.2011, the Grand Prix Commission accepted the
    following proposal, taken by the majority of members of MSMA: 4-stroke
    engines of 600cc maximum and 4 cylinders maximum. A request will be
    sent to all manufacturers. The candidatures of the manufacturers
    interested in taking part in the new class must be sent to the FIM and
    Dorna by July 31, 2008 at the latest. More precise technical
    specifications will then be discussed and established."

    For the F2 class let's make that 400cc four-stroke fours and 600cc
    four-stroke twins...

    Then for the F3 class make that 600cc four-stroke singles...and maybe make
    that 600cc four-stroke air-cooled singles.
