The FIM has ruled that beginning in the 2019 season, there will be no wild card entries available in the Moto2 class. The 2019 Moto2 grid will effectively be a spec class with all bikes equipped with Triumph’s 765cc Triple engine. Since this brand new engine spec will not be accessible to other championships, it’s less likely for a rider like Dimas Ekky to have a point of reference. The decision will be revisited for the 2020 season.
